Besides continuing to work my everyday job because of my “essential employee” status. I am preparing everything on my TJ to bolt the tub back down to the frame...finally. Painting and dying various pieces and parts. Just trying to stay busy and keep my mind occupied...

What are you doing to stay busy? I see you’re in California. Hopefully you at least have good weather on your side...

Went shopping at Walmart as soon as they opened. Also, put Pizza Hut delivery #1 on my speed dial. I was really sick for the last two weeks and stayed home INSIDE.

p.s. Funny how state run ABC/Liquor stores stay open and are considered essential.

Im also one of the "essential" workers, however with everyone staying home business is slow, lots of cut hours.

After the Honey-Do-List ......

Clearing out the garage, removing the top, change the front axle seals, rear upper arms, rock lights.
may get a Ham setup for it also

I work in maintenance for a ground handling company. Two terminals have now closed and all flights are going through T1 now. I don't know how many passengers are still moving, though I believe they are mostly repatriation pax. Some airlines are just carrying freight now. Lot's of kit is being serviced then immobilised, so it's good to go when things pick up again. I expect more of us will be stood down in the coming days. I have some stuff to do on the TJ to keep me busy for a while if/when I'm stood down.

IT for Canadian govt department of 120k workstations so considered essential. Been doing some ammo reloading (30/06 and 9mm, 223 forthcoming) as it isn't warm enough yet. I did replace my heater blower though and have decided to switch from using RTV to a Lube locker. Have been waiting for a nice day to do it. Today may be that day.

I'm fortunate enough to have been retired for a few years, children are all grown/gone. So my day/day worries/responsibilities are pretty minimal. I do volunteer with Dallas Habitat building houses a couple days a week, which has all come to a stop for now.

Spending time doing spring yardwork and getting garden prepped and planted. I have ordered a D44 rear axle seal/bearing kit to replace, again. Should be here next week.

Speaking of yardwork and garden, I wish I had planted a "money tree" to offset the "rotting" investments accounts.

Edit, one other point, I'm a routine blood donor, several times a years, I don't enjoy it, but feel that's something I can do. Local blood banks aren't able to do the mobile blood drives that usually happen, so blood supplies are down. Take an hour or two, find your local blood donation center, and go give a pint.

I am multi-talented, I can talk and piss you off at the same time.

Not many. I talked to a B737 the other day coming back with a routine emergency. We always have to get certain pieces of info, one of which is souls on board. The pilot replied "9 SOB's on board. Plenty of leg room up here!" Air traffic is probably 1/4 or less of what it normally is right now, and most of those planes are near empty.

Built shelves in the shop to get it better organized. Received a pair of brackets I ordered to start a front disc brake conversion on my Willys front Dana 25. Need to start rounding out the rest of the brake conversion parts.

You can teach manners, but you can't teach class.
