Lockdown Diary – Day 14

Two weeks in and things have taken a decidedly dark turn today. This morning I saw on Twitter that the fire station about a quarter mile up Croydon Road has started building a temporary morgue.

Then in the early evening it was announced that Boris Johnson had been moved to an ICU. That shook the entire nation to its core. Regardless of your politics you just don’t want to see that happen to anyone. Except Trump. Please let it happen to Trump.

Didn’t leave the house today, none of us. It was warm but not as sunny. We broke out the BBQ and had my famous “daddy burgers” for the first time this year. It was the one bright spot of a pretty fucking awful day.

Well, that’s not true. The other day I found a copy of my first grade class photo and took a picture of it and posted it on the Grayslake Facebook site and had a bit of fun and escapism with all the people commenting and trying to remember who was who in the photo. Nice to connect and I am sure everyone was glad to have something else to think about.
