@landuse

How are they dealing with the townships? Just ignore and let it run its course? They were small cardboard/clapboard cities last time I visited Cape Town...too many people in poverty, gangs and food shortages during the good years

Stay safe buddy.

I know as of right now Iím ok I think. As everyone recalls Iíve had cancer really bad and donít have a immune system and Iím having to work or else get fired pretty much. Cause itís supposedly a essential like everything else in Oklahoma. Nobody is taking it seriously unless a person dies at the company they worked at for the most part.

The townships are under the same lockdown rules as everyone else, but as you can imagine it is more of a logistical nightmare in these areas. It's difficult.

People often have to use communal taps, so social distancing doesn't really work there. I have heard that the government is installing more water points so that there isn't such a concentration of people in just one area.

I have to go do some food shopping today, so it will be the first time i have been out since the start. I'll tell you guys later if i was stopped at a roadblock

I think we people with dogs are going to be some of the ones who don't lose their mind during isolation.

Apparently i read that 3 people have been killed through the act of police enforcement. So if you think about it, the police have killed the same amount of people that the virus has killed in this country

Default Hard Days Ahead in the war against Covid-19

Please People, listen to the experts
...& stay your azz home
(just a little longer)

They say, the next couple of weeks are gonna be brutal.

As of today
World wide there are over 1,000,000 confirmed cases of CoVid-19
Ö& over 60,000 deaths from it

In the USA, , there are over 275,000 confirmed cases of this virus
Ö& over 7,000 deaths from it

In the USA, the current estimates for potential deaths, from this virus is ~100,000
(that's a lot of moms & dads, brothers & sisters)

...but, according to the models, if we DIDN"T do these mitigation measures
(staying at home & social distancing)
...there could have been anywhere between 1.6 - 2.2 million deaths

(that's just in the USA)

On the "bright side" to help with the "surge", the USNS Mercy is in LA, California
Ö& the USNS Comfort is docked in NY harbor
(they each have 1,000 patient capacity & 12 operating rooms)

So again, Please People, listen to the experts
...& stay your azz home

Got a 3rd week added to my mandatory 2 week vacation. Nice to be off, but not nice to not have the $$$ for the truck parts I need in a bad sort of way.

I made a chair...
We have some cheap metal chairs, after the years.. theyre getting a little worn out from the weather... So I made a new one with the left over 2x4 bits I had and a board I found near the dumpster.. from a shelf.

This has a first coat of spar finish boat varnish....
for the outdoors of such like this.. it works pretty good.. even for cheap wood..

Looks good!! Nothing better than making something that you can use yourself

I’ve been passing the time by rebuilding a truck I bought. It was a bank repo and needed a lot of work, so it’s giving me something to do. I’m still going to work everyday for now, no shutdown orders in Arkansas yet.

Apparently 45 doctors in the Grand Island area wants Gov. Pete Ricketts to shut the whole state down.
