I'm almost out of isopropyl Alcohol. But I got lucky. [View all]

So this not a serious political discussion. But is where most of us are right now. And politics is pretty set for us anyway. Keeping safe is where we are.

You canít get hand sanitizer and as a kind of liberal redneck guy with a science education I have been opting for carrying around a freezer zippy with a stout paper towel saturated with alcohol to wipe down everything I touch. I mean everything. And a half bottle had lasted me over a week. But I was almost out and that is an issue. You canít buy that shit anywhere.

My wife does not need to get this as she is pushing 60 with a history of pneumonia and I am the one going out to buy groceries and such and I also have to work every day. Critical infrastructure stuff. Luckily she is working from home and still getting paid.

Tonight I went into our local ABC liquor store and scored a 1.75 liter of 151 ever clear. Will cut it with 50 proof vodka to give me 3 liters of sanitizer. So in my older years Iím using beverages that I used to use to get loose to help keep my wife I have loved for 33 years safe.

Iím not at all surprised we are having a pandemic. Science had predicted it for years. But Iím repulsed at the response of the current administration. But not surprised

But life goes on. We pulled the boat over to the gulf and went fishing. And caught dinner.

Just thought it was crazy I was thrilled at scoring booze to run over my hands and everything they touch. There is an irony there.

Now I have to find something I can mix into the ever clear/vodka to make it seem I am not a drunk! Thinking peppermint oil.







Yíall stay safe.
