It's becoming increasingly clear that without an effective vaccine, my days of being an optician are pretty much over.  So at age 67 it is once again time to reinvent myself to be employable for something that will keep the kitty's kibbles coming through the door.

Maybe a customer service rep based at home ?  Anyone know of a good outfit looking for part time phone reps, or where is a good place to look for these gigs, let me know.  Seriously.

I only need 1k a month to keep the balls in the air, but I need it.

I tried looking about a year ago and everything led to worthless click bait sites.

Yes, the good news is the weather has been supreme all year for growing.  Our gardens are bursting from the seams and just scored a truckload of horse poop yesterday!{#Sunny}

We are doing fine, but we are geared for this type of thing, we know this is just one of many apocalyptic crises to come.{#Cry}  It is my parents that I am most surprised and happy about, they were on top of this back in February stocked up on food, gas, toilet paper, ammo and everything they could possibly need to be hunkered down for months.  They are not allowing anyone to come to their house or leaving their property till the coast is clear.  I went to visit them one last time a couple of weeks ago and they were gloved up and masked and would not allow me to come anywhere near them did some work out in the yard for my dad and visited with them as they sat on the upstairs porch then went home.  I am so proud of them.  I guess I get it honest.{#Lol}

Called in our weekly booze delivery and am about to put in our grocery order.

The new normal is just fine if you're a dedicated introvert like me.
 

isn't that sort of standard for dragons?

please be careful about which direction you sneeze or cough

don't  want to singe any eyebrows or burn the curtains

remember safety first
