Yes I'm bored hearing about coronavirus but that's not what this thread's about. Here in Portland they've shut down bars and theaters for 30 days, closed schools and limited restaurants to serving takeout food only. Libraries are closed for 2 weeks and so are most bookstores. It's a bitch trying to stay occupied, especially for me as I retired 2 months ago. Who else here is under lockdown and how bad is it? And let's help each of us get through this! With the limited resources you have, what are you doing to stay occupied? What are your suggestions? Let me start. Call up friends. It might just be a drinking buddy from a bar you frequent and you see him/her often enough there that you feel no need to contact them further. That is, until now. If you have their number call them and see if they have anyone else's number. Then get together at someone's place, as long as you're not feeling sick. Go for a drive or a bike ride. The weather here has been pretty nice lately so I've been able to ride my bike around and get some exercise. Anyplace further away and I can drive there or take the bus. Browse. Go the the stores that are still open and look around. Play video games. Or board games. Or mind games. No, scratch that last one. Surf the web. See what other websites are out there. Do the chores you've been putting off. Clean it up, get it taken care of, tie up any loose ends! Let's kick this off!
