1. How is the Coronavirus situation where you live? What's closed down? Have you gone out much? Are you (Oh, what's the trendy term now " Self-distancing "?) staying inside as a precaution or actually infected or is anyone else you know? I hope, if so, you're well. Let's...well, exchange comments.
  2.   I am now in Portland, Oregon. The Govenor, and then, locally, Portland declared a state of emergency. I saw the comment made that Oregon was the furthest behind on dealing with CV of the 3 West Coast states.
  3.   I went out yesterday ( Sun.), I am ill and had sleep to make up to-day (Mon.) and ended up not going out - I may go out across the street to a all-nite grocery tonite-early Tues. I have not heard of a regular medical appointment Tues. being cancelled.

The one I use is "Wild Willie's Beard Oil."

Today I was hearing that Long Island (NY) was being hit hard by COVID-19. It occurred to me that Peter David lives there. His wife Kathleen is continuing to blog. It sounds like Peter's family is doing okay, particularly in light of Peter's health issues. They're being very careful.

Yeah, it's weird here.  So far, I only know one person on the Island who has the virus.

I have a large beard and it doesn't itch - Well, now that I'm thinking about it, I'm feeling it a little!

Reminds me of this.

"Reminds me of this."

Linus is obviously tripping on LSD.

...I recall an old fanzine (I never saw it) called " Aware Of My Tongue "!

My beard isn't long and usually doesn't itch. My facial hair saga goes like this:

I was clean shaven when "the Army joined me" 52 years ago today. After basic training I first found myself at a stateside assignment in Northern Virginia. Since it was permitted, I grew a mustache. Unlike many, when I later was sent to Vietnam I went back to clean shaven since I didn't want to bother with it over there. Directly from Vietnam, I returned to civilian life and grew back my mustache, and in the mid-seventies had shoulder-length hair. In the late-seventies I grew a closely-trimmed beard, which was all brown. I went back to a mustache in the early eighties. The next time I grew a beard there was a little white in it. Now my beard is all white and my hair is still a little brown, but there is little of it in the front. My "bald spot" has gained a lot of territory.

Last weekend I was shamed. Tracy and I went to the grocery store, and we left our car just as another couple on the other side of the aisle was leaving theirs. We overheard the woman stage whisper, "I'll bet they don't," to which her husband replied, "Wait and see." Just as we were entering the store, the wife said, "See."

Okay, we weren't wearing masks, I admit it, but neither were 50% of the customers there. To be perfectly honest, we don't (or didn't at the time) even own any "masks" (not ones that wouldn't get our photos posted on the internet for ridicule, anyway).

After that, tracy ordered some, and they came yesterday. Mine makes me look like Greyshirt.

My instinctive reaction to people like that would be, "Who the fudge* are you?"

*Not the actual word I would use.

In hindsight, I wish I would have coughed.
