Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

Late evening on the fifth day. I got to spend two hours on Skype with my grandson today. Then a girl he knows called, and suddenly I wasn’t so exciting. I made a trip to the local market and Dunkin Donuts. I can’t get used to how empty the streets are at 11:00 in the morning. I am astonished at the level of cooperation in people staying indoors as much as possible and away from each other, at least in my neighborhood. But I can’t help but wonder how long it will last, especially as our leaders in government insist on conducting partisan grandstanding as if nothing unusual was affecting their constituents. 

I am thinking about taking the car out soon. It hasn’t been started since Saturday, and I want to make sure it is functioning correctly when I do need it. I don’t think I am likely to catch a virus driving around in my car alone with the windows up. There is also the looming possibility that this shelter in place order could become an enforced quarantine. That is something I am not looking forward to. Tomorrow I start working in earnest on my novel, and I may start posting some more short stories on a writer’s site I belong to.
