  1. I think I made mine out of a chair cover that had straps to it.
  2. I'm so sorry man. I know what it's like to lose your mom. Mom and I were very close. We were always together all the time until she passed away the day after Thanksgiving 2018. The last day I was with her was on Thanksgiving. My brother and I were sitting there with the parade on tv and watching her as she was taking some of her last breaths. She wasn't able to eat or get out of bed. She couldn't see anymore and she was in a constant acid trip type thing in her head. My last words to her were I love you mom. I love you too she said. I still remember that hug and people will think I'm crazy but at times where I'm at my lowest I feel someone hugging me again. I've gotten much closer with all of my family in my sobriety. Grandma and I have actually been very close. She's becoming someone I can talk about anything with. The news about her is very hard. My dad is in bad health too. I'm not sure the extent of it and he won't tell me ever but there have been incidents at work recently that are very serious and through everything that's going on in the world he out of the blue scheduled a cross country trip to see family in a few months.
  3. I walked to the lake and back today. I saw 6 deer in the middle of the day. I saw 3 of them jump across a creek. I have no idea how they were able to. It was probably an 8 foot jump! I love seeing the animals on my walks. It always starts with an oh know what is that oh it's just deer. Then I'm happy. I'm walking in areas where bears and mountain lions have been seen. I enjoy that walk though because I walk through the middle of a giant farm. The scene is just amazing. One day I want to buy that farm! It's just an amazing view down through there.
  4. I found out grandma's cancer is spreading. They don't expect her to make it beyond summer.
  5. Well what's next really? Plenty of people have a right to be angry. Millions of people's lives are ruined at this point with no real belief any of that will change. When this is over the streets will be filled with buildings that are boarded up and millions of homeless people. The government will be saying sorry as they're shrugging theirs shoulders. The government won't put things back the way they were when this is over. Their fix will look like the morning after at a party house. But those people can't complain when they're backed into a corner and forced to lose everything. Their idea isn't working I scream at the top of my lungs. The world needs a compromise here!
  6. A balance in the universe seems to mean the same people are always steps for the ones that always have great lives. The same amount of good and bad. That's usually how the balance works.
  7. I know how you feel @samadhiSheolI feel the same way. It very much feels like I live in a world where I'm the only one that sees what's really going on around me. It's scary. It feels like I'm in an asylum like the state mental hospital only I'm the only one that isn't crazy. I have to survive the asylum though. We're strong enough to get through this time. I'm sure I will choose my last day but it has to be my choice. It can't be swayed by a world that's gone completely off the rails.
  8. I'll wear it around people but I'm not wearing for my walks. People are already suspicious of me. I don't need to look like a bank robber walking out in the country where I'm not going to see anyone!
  9. Yes I've made my own facemask already. I'll make 3 more out of whatever that is that I'm cutting up. I look like someone that's going to pull out a gun and say give me all of your money. I'm as done with this as someone can get at this point!
  10. A hospital in Pittsburgh apparently has a vaccine. UPMC now they're talking about waiting for trials. We don't have time to wait!
  11. My wheelbarrow has had a flat tire for 10 years I think. Someone gave me fixaflat last year about this time and I still havent gotten to it.
  12. My advice when they do show up tell them the sink needs the gasket. When I was in apartment buildings they always did half ass work I think so they would have an excuse to come into the apartment more often. They would come up with nonsense things like fire extinguisher and smoke detector inspection. I wish I was there I know I could help you with this.
  13. I had the same trouble with my bathroom sink. It took a long time to line up the gasket but you really need it. I tried without it and it was a disaster. It's really going to leak all the time. Any loosening at all and it will leak.
  14. The stay at home order was extended to May 1st. I wish someone would shoot me and put me out of my misery. I have past enemies that I've forgotten about. Hopefully one of them just takes me out in a moment I don't see coming.
  15. That's how it was at McDonalds basically anyone can be in the maintenance position just like the other positions. Nobody actually knew how to fix anything.
  16. I'm waiting for the guinea pirate to show up.
  17. This pandemic is as ridiculous as the pandemic episode on South Park.
  18. Yeah 41 years and I've never once said hey can you make some coffee? Never.
  19. I would say my phone and internet is getting turned off sorry.
  20. I'm not doing anything today or tomorrow. My mind needs to pretend the world doesn't exist for a couple of days.
  21. I thought you were still working at the hospital.
