Today’s quote was sent to me from the 17th Century. Mr. John Dryden (English poet and playwright) writes, “Dear Casey . . .” (oops, wrong program). John writes, “I’m a little wounded, but I am not slain: I will lay me down to bleed a while. Then I’ll rise and fight again.”
Thank you, John, for the inspirational words.
So, yesterday was officially Day 1 Quarantine and the start of my “101 Things To Do While Quarantined” list (though I did get ahead of myself and knock out a few things the other day).
Here’s a list of a few things I started. A couple, believe it or not, I actually finished!
Cleaned my desk
Created a banjo practice schedule
Started the banjo book I received the other day
Cleaned out the truck and added a mat (something I bought last year)
Started a new firewood rack
Cut the front, sides, and most of back
Started a song titled “This Too Shall Pass Away”
Took a thirty-minute walk
Listened to “Please Please Me” by the Beatles
I’ll continue today and see how far I get!
From a few joke books:
Which painting in the National Gallery would I save if there were a fire? The one nearest the door, of course. — George Bernard Shaw
Insult: He wouldn’t dare to eat his heart out — he’d break his teeth doing it.
I mentioned that the TV Series I choose to catch up on is Columbo. This from Bill Vaughan:
Perhaps the crime situation would be improved if we could get more cops off the television and onto the streets.
And finally, my brain just logged me out due to inactivity and now I can’t remember my password!
Stay safe out there and Carpe diem Life,
