Shelter In Place but Bike In Park

saddest birthday ever 

March 2020 is a really crappy time for a birthday. I don't blame him one bit for his disappointment.

I was a bit bummed when they issued the Shelter In Place order. Then I found that outdoor exercise is allowed as long as Social Distancing (I'm getting tired of hearing that word) is practiced. I rode my bike to Zilker and all around it. I found this nice patch of bluebonnets. They don't care about all the human troubles. They are thriving.

I told Kat how great it is to ride the bike for shopping. She was happy going to Trader Joe's (downhill). She was not so happy with me when we went home (uphill).

We are trying some of the various shelter tactics we see other people doing. I found beans! We are good for a while now.

I took the 951 on the scenic route to HEB and stopped by a friends house for a no contact beer trade.

That's a bag full of Other Half IPA and Monkish IPA. It's going to be an extra hoppy week.  

Virtual Happy Hour is a bright spot in my day. It's a challenge to keep the topic away from the Virus. I also try to moderate so people don't talk over each other. I'm enjoying my role as a host, or therapist, "Ok Scott, is there anything you'd like to share with the group today? Christopher, how was your day, can you tell us about it?..."

Kat isn't much of a fan. But she did join in for one smaller VHH.

Kat has run out of patience with Jack and his White Claws. He's been sent back to the garage.
