    Still no *confirmed* cases in our county yet. Which is surprising considering our proximity to Dane County which is where *most* of the Wisconsin confirmed cases are. It's moving rapidly. Last report I heard was 300, and a friend of mine that works at a hospital said expect that number to double or triple when they release the new numbers.

    I wonder if it's going to be better to get this stuff early before all the hospitals are full of patients....

    How do they know it wasn't used by somebody with a bad case of Taco Bell shits?

    No more "wiping" out crime in our area!
    Arrests were on a "roll". No longer!
    Lucky our local police wear brown slacks.
    Knowing they don't have toilet paper, may not be a good idea to use the officer's pen to sign your traffic ticket.
    Heard someone on 'Live PD' tell an officer to he could take the ticket and wipe their a** with it. Locally, our police may take that as an excellent suggestion.

    We benefit from an AWESOME local police department. Extremely professional. Seems they are always communicating tidbits on FB or Twitter to keep us smiling.

    Restrictions get tighter at my course:

    - all ball washers, drinks taps and the like are closed.
    - all glassware has been replaced by plastic cups.
    - Preferred lies in bunkers. All bunker rakes have been removed and members encouraged to use the club or foot to smooth out the bunker when exiting.
    - Towels removed from the locker rooms. BYO towels.
    - The pro-shop has a maximum of 6 people allowed at a time.
    - No cash payments accepted.

    Went to bed last night with a runny nose and bit of a sore throat. I’m now in self-isolation.

    I had a dry cough this morning. At first I thought it was the Corona virus but I settled on the bubonic plague

    Stayed home this morning. Drizzle and cold so thought better of playing golf. Mentioned to my dear wife that I planned on returning to the course tomorrow. Well, after living with a dear friend for 54 years... sometimes you can hear what they aren't saying. She casually mentioned she felt it in the better interest of my health... and hers... not to be amongst people. The tone was not demanding, but easily recognizable. I think it in the best interest of having peace with the one you are apt to be locked in the same house with for a few weeks to stay home. Now I have to decide which voices in my head to listen to.

    3 cases in Citrus County. Our golf courses are open to members only now, everyone rides in their own carts by themselves, leave flagsticks in, hat tips on the 18th green. We made hand sanitizer ourselves from 151 proof grain alcohol and Aloe. Things are worse in VA, so we're thinking about staying here a while longer.

    You know how scary it is to get a fever these days? My wife was in full panic mode.

    Welcome back from the dead. :D

    Glad it was just an ordinary fever type thing instead the Corona thing.

    I'm kinda starting to wonder if someone walks into the doc and says they have the symptoms and the doc just rubber-stamps COVID-19 on their chart. Possible?
