    If you are sidelined by Covid-19, what are you doing to keep busy besides detailing?

    Me?

    * Painted our bathroom a color that only my wife likes, and picked out. :/

    * Raked out every inch of fence line, (even under the bushes) that I have always thought "I have to do that one day....."

    * Cleaned my gutters (even though not much was in there).

    * Clipped overgrowth from my neighbors' bushes.

    * Going berserk not working.........
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Re: If you are sidelined by Covid-19, what are you doing to keep busy besides detailing?

    I have a new mulch project Iíve been working on with my flower beds. Thankfully I was able to budget it in before the virus struck. Iím about 80% done

    I also go walking every other day at 7 AM sharp. I do 5 miles now since my route along the beach is closed

    I spend even more time here and on Autopia

    Soon Iíll be in touch with my colleague about what is planned for when we get back to work.
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    Re: If you are sidelined by Covid-19, what are you doing to keep busy besides detailing?

    ... Just clicked over week number one of our four week lockdown here in New Zealand.

    The last time the shop had been shut (apart from planned vacation) was for the three days they kept me in hospital when I had my heart attack ... itís all very strange, frustrating & admittedly, itís pretty scary. Obviously COVID-19 is scary on the health side of the coin but also itís scary for our business too ... we just kicked off into year ten of our little shop & 2020 was looking great, we were booked solid through until mid July & strong bookings through to September. Now, now weíre crossing all, our limbs that we will have a business at the end of this. Something tells me we are in lockdown a bit longer than only four weeks ... time will tell.

    In the mean time, Iíve been catching up on jobs around the house, washing down the exterior of the house etc, catching up on AGO & of course spending valuable time with the family.


    LEGO, well LEGO has been a daily staple ... hereís some FMX action from this morning ...

    Re: If you are sidelined by Covid-19, what are you doing to keep busy besides detailing?

    I'm fortunate that I'm still getting a check as a corporate pilot despite not working in 3 weeks. My wife works in healthcare and has seen the poo hit the prop up close. I've been spending a lot of time with my almost 5 year old daughter and and 3 year old son. If there is one bright spot, it's that. I'm usually gone 15+ days a month and I have really liked the quality time with the kids. They've helped me:

    Detail my truck, and travel trailer.
    Do some demolition work in the basement in preparation for some remodeling.

    I've helped them:
    Learn to pedal their bikes. They rode over 2 miles today.
    Read 178098837 books
    Work on handwriting
    Potty train
    Introduced them to movies of my childhood
    938487474783 snuggles

    Positives over negatives.

    Having a setup like that was a dream of mine when I was younger (still kind of is). Just don't have the funds or the space now that I think of it. One day though haha.
