Humor and fun chat diversions during the Coronavirus crisis: Join us

Hello
I’m hoping to share some humor during these stressful times and hope noone take offense.
I’m also hoping my attached cartoon comes across as I have not posted any attachments before.

Just had to share this Cheers episode skit that gave me my laugh for the day….

Cheers — "I'm a janitor at a biology lab…": https://youtu.be/_tqdOwOxY3s

Thanks for that laugh, @johnbishop. I just love that show. I'm still disappointed that Netflix removed it at the end of June.

What should you do if you don’t understand a coronavirus joke? Be patient.

Well, school is starting again and we’re still stuck with COVID-19, so here’s my answer

@becsbuddy, I heard this great "song" before and enjoyed it again today! Glad I don't have to take on the online learning but feel like joining the music teacher in a duet because we are all still stuck in Covid-19 and I'm getting a growing case of quarantineitis! Temps hit 110 here yesterday. A friend ran an errand and when she returned to her car after about 15-20 minutes the inside temp read 118…too hot for mortals! This morning I drove over to a park for an early walk and while sitting on a bench decided that the birds were flying at half-mast and looking for shade in the nearby trees. The park was a diversion because there were more walkers than I see on my neighborhood walks. Maybe I am just being too cautious but as one group of 3 men approached me without masks, I turned in the opposite direction and headed back to the car. Couples and families not wearing masks are fine for me but these guys were laughing, side-by-side and made me nervous.

@fiesty76. California is having extreme heat too. While it's not over 100, it is close to that. I got up early to walk and when i got back i was drenched with sweat. Couldn't walk in the pm. Didn't cool down until late at night. Looks like it will stay this way for next week as well. We are going to have a rolling blackout too. Glad i still have a landline in case of emergency so i can call for help. I cannot tolerate heat like this. Feel sorry for the firefighters, we still have a few fires going around. Not close to me thank goodness. Some families had lost their homes. I feel so bad.

Does anyone remember the Copper Clapper Caper on Johnny Carson? Funny…🙂

Smile for the day –
Walking with a 4 year old yesterday, he noted the 8" of snow from 2 weeks ago was all gone. I asked "Where did the snow go?" He said "I don't know." Me "Maybe the sun melted it?" He: "Nope. The slush ate it." Me "Then what happened?" His reply "It got to water and ran down the drain." He's figuring nature out in his own way.
By the way, he was a woodpecker on our walk yesterday – complete with pecking at branches looking for insects, and making drilling sounds. Last week he was a puppy.

This was getting pretty far off the topic of walking, so I replied here, under diversions – with the particulars.

Koshars' Sausage Kitchen in Gilbert is the place – our favorite blood sausage (husband and one daughter), potato sausage (other daughter and me) hot Italian jerky (son-in-law), porketta roasts (all of us) and homemade hard dry salami. The recipes used are traditional to the Slovenes and very similar to what my father-in-law and his cousin made for us. They also have good smoked pork chops, but my husband does our own, and really good brats, but we got our favorites from the Farmers' Market this summer and stocked up well. And they don't put enough garlic in the Polish sausage, so I get those from my "hometown" sausage maker here in Minneapolis – guys I grew up with, now training the 4th generation.

A favorite winter meal at our house is baked sausage, boiled potatoes and sour cucumbers with onions – pretty typical old-country comfort food.

We also stopped at Cane Lake Candy in Virginia for the dark chocolate "Hot air" candy and took a drive through my husband's hometown. Normally we would have stopped at a local bar there to meet with his cousins or classmates, but… And we would have hit one of the L&M Supply stores, but not this time either.

We tried to finish the day with a drive through the Bentleyville lights, but the line was over a mile long at 4:40, with bumper-to-bumper traffic heading in from 35 and from Superior – and Tuesday is supposed to be the "least busy". So we had curbside takeout from Pizza Luce & headed home.

All in all a great 'venture as our 4 yo grandson would say. We were sorry we couldn't have him with us.
