Had I known, I would have used a capital T. Pull yourself together, man!

Mike was cleared and is back. Had a young relative / friend other side of the state get hauled to ER over the weekend. He may get to go home today but has flu + pneumonia.

One of those but things.

I am all up off in the shop building truck.

Would need to convince the wife to go and push the testing center. She wouldn't. She'll say she doesn't have this or that symptom. Fever is gone and she was having stomach issues which is not a Covid symptom. They don't test unless the Covid symptoms present as there would a line up two miles long. We have a certain ethnic background in our area that freaks out.


Our provider is Government health insurance.



Anyhow, last day of work is tomorrow. Our province will be locking down except for essential services. I could use a vacation.....


On a positive note, I was talking to someone that seen lots of TP in a grocery store the other day.

MN locked most services down last week, WI locked down all but essential services today.

The bankruptcy and unemployment rates will rival the great depression very soon.

I should wrap up my work on a '95 Suburban tomorrow and will then likely stay home for a while to see what happens in this area with the spread. I'm not an essential member of the team there and really don't generate income. I just play the #4 batter position and try to clean up the messes the owner abandons.

Now is a good time to stay away if possible. It's some bad stuff, even though you hear about how it's just a flu this, and that....usually young guys talk like that.

I done seen a black this century GTO at a lot on the way home, made me a drop or two. Perish the thought. No throttle cable.

Planted face in front of Coyote engine today, semi-gently and with about four layers of bed sheet between me and it. Was pushing the 51 chassis on go-jacks by myself and slipped on bondo dust. Came away with forehead knot right where welding helmet strap goes and bent right elbow the wrong way some. Thankfully it was kinda gradual not sudden but yeah, I think my head met bolt head. Had my weight on it for a sec and gave the ol neck a good twist too. Nifty, I'll feel all that. You can call me knothead this week and I will have come by it honest-like.

Noticed the pic thing as I backed out this AM. Gas water heater vent. Looks like a squirrel was seeking a point of entry and actually pulled the shield up or maybe pipe and all. Can't touch it without a ladder and don't own one. Or a truck. Hmm. Can't even access the attic without something.

Played around with the 2500 a bit making up a check list.
Short term items are a new lock cylinder, drain the entire coolant system, and do the heater core.

After reading that the virus attacks the lung tissue and destroys it, I don't take any of this lightly. It can leave a person who "recovers" with 20-30% less lung capacity and it could be permanent... The people who die, basically asphyxiate from lack of oxygen getting in their blood stream to support the organs and they fail.

Imagine being my cousin who had her lungs out a couple weeks ago... right about now.

Dang, that's right. She might want to consider living in a plastic bubble, like people with no immune system, for the next few months. She must be very vulnerable...

My five minutes was spent attempting to tear down the header bow. It is really slow going but so far I have managed to save all the threads.

I'm just like the guy that jumped off the Empire State Building......So far, so good.

Pix:

Really solid Chevy LWB bed floor, Mike's tunnel, edit showing boss's hood with proposed stripe idea (his), and last but not least I put some bracing in and um... think I need to go up closer to the windshield with new metal when I shave cowl vent. Started my pattern. That other rounded corner is done.

Yesterday morning I pulled the trigger on a new 4 post lift. I left my original at the home I sold as an enticement for the new buyer. The wife had talked me into leaving it by telling me she would buy me a brand new lift.



Well Yesterday she says "Lets Order it". so I call get some more info and am ready to talk delivery times. we had a discussion on just what was going to happen if the Governor shuts down the state! The lift supplier said he would hold the lift in his warehouse till we can get the building signed off. So we set a conservative schedule that would have them deliver it within about 2 weeks. of business reopening. I should have my sign off on my shop by then.



Well last night The GOV enacted his "STAY HOME" declaration. He said effective on Wednesday the 25 there is a stay at home order in effect to see if they can stop all these yahoos from treating this health issue like spring break!



So today I had another talk with my lift dealer and he assured me if there is a delay to getting my building signed off when this 2 weeks restriction is over and he will hold the lift for me, so I can rest a little more comfortable and have 1 less thing to deal with.



Well I guess my black cloud has returned as this period all except critical services are supposed to be shuttered. I spoke with my Contractor and we don't think my Doors for my shop will arrive now until after this shutdown is over. Either way it goes, after my doors arrive and I get my certificate of Occupancy, I will have them deliver and set up the lift and be back in the shop!!!



So lets all stay healthy out there ok.



Remember, Happy wife Happy Life.




GAWD I hate all these delays!!

RIP, you're not the only one with a black cloud. Our lockdown starts tomorrow but our company is allowed to work so the owner says we work. Damn, I was looking forward to a real vacation. We have almost no work to do anyhow. I may try fabricating a couple thousand face shields soon. Not that I know how, but may give it a shot so the boys have some work.

Body mount channels. Anti squish sleeves installed and templates for 1/8" steel bands. I would hope this is strong enough in case of an errant TC.
