Thanks for starting this thread, Old-timer. I think you are only 72, so you are just a kid, but SoSo Devil is 84 (I think) so with me at 83 we and a few other posters are the "special quarantine unit" and a lot more apt to be subject to endless hours of wasted time. I love this time to be with my high school sweetheart interrupted only by a dozen or so phone calls from friends who also are in our age group. Oh - - - and our 3 daughters who are constantly reminding us how old and vulnerable we are "dad and mom, please don't go out shopping, let us do it for you", etc, etc. etc. Our son and daughter-in-law are much more understanding and their calls are more fun!!
I will say that I'm actually starting to like the Hallmark movies that my wife records over and over again. Am I deranged or do any of you guys have the same malady??? She just came into our mutual home office and asked me to come in and watch The View with her. She has never, ever watched The View so I told her "sorry honey, but Whoopie is not my thing". She started laughing and said I didn't mean The View I meant The Voice". We are both still laughing. This is what isolation will do to a couple of ole farts!!
Stay safe guys and gal!!!
