I had a great two hour ride today. Trying to get a rock formation. Heading up Hwy 50 to the Sierras ( Where I know there are rocks ) and see White Rock Road HMMM rock. See some positive signs and make a left and there are rocks. Took pics. A very positive day.

Deek you are like my father, he lived to fish. Growing up we had 3 boats a pontoon boat moored on a fishing lake, a flat bottom shallow draft bass boat and a semi-vee bass boat with a big motor. He had different tackle boxes set up for the type of fishing he wanted to do and atleast a hundred rods of every type. When he retired he rented a lake up north that they had to fly him into to fish for a week with my cousin ( his fishing partner). Now for the funniest part of the whole deal, he would not eat a fish. But he loved catching them.

I don't have 100 rods but i do have a couple dozen. They get more expensive the newer they are. I am cheap so my most expensive is Basspro Johnny Morris Carbonlite 2.0

One cool thing with this suggested isolation, my wife bakes and does desserts for me. Today she made a peanut butter and Rice Krispy mix and dipped in chocolate. Yes, they are really good.

If it makes y'all feel any better, I ate so many I'm miserable. But a good miserable.

Counting my blessings here. I've been working from home for almost 4 years now, so this stay-at-home order hasn't really changed my day to day much. The company I work for is considered essential in Washington state, so as long as orders hold up I think the checks will keep coming. Retirement was planned for roughly a year from now. That might have to be delayed a little, but even if I had to leave the rat race now we would get by. Riding the bike is still acceptable, and as far as I can tell it is as safe from infection as taking a walk would be. And CA is still saying you SHOULD take walks. Traffic is lighter, so riding is safer. I'm almost embarrassed how little we have been affected. Very thankful.

Here's something positive - today was my last day before being laid off. Around 4 pm my boss radioed me to come to the office for a minute. I figured it was to say good bye and all that, but instead he told me to tear up my lay off notice. Someone got fired so they counted that as a one of the layoffs and I was called back. I hate to get my job back at the expense of someone else's, but I can't help but be thankful.
