Happy day, @Nighteyes. Wishing you a truly awesome day... at home... unable to go out... unable to shop...

Well, anyway, don’t get sick!

I mean, have a great day  ;D

“Battleground Tour” is currently 1,679 words, and the ending is... rough.
More writing work tomorrow!

The 40 days before Easter. Traditionally, it’s a period of abstinence and prayer. This often turns into “giving up something for Lent.” Like chocolate, or TV, or alcohol. It’s a meaningful time for me as a Christian.

I still wish I hadn’t picked liquor.

Erm. Context, please? This sounds weird and, maybe..., wonderful?
Ditto ;D

Romantic ,erotic/smut, body swap, fanfic of the group muse.

Insufficient. Is this a fanfic book by Cupiscent? (Apparently)  Is “Muse” a game? A book? (No idea)
Can we play along at home? (Is there a link?)

but... what about the delivery people? They're definitely on the risk front line...

Yes, the lower you are in the worker pay ladder, the more likely it is we’re asking you to keep going to the warehouse, the logistics center, the pizza shop, the military base, the hospital...

It’s Sunday morning. I’m turning off the TV, no matter how riveting the 85th repetition of COVID news may be.

Time to write...

Why, oh why did I give up alcohol for Lent?

Many of you know I had a heart attack a bit more than 2 years ago. So, I’m in the “underlying conditions” club. Yay, me. It’s a good thing I’m working from home, because Mrs. JMack wouldn’t let me go out in public even if I wanted to.

This whole thing is simply unbelievable. Yesterday, for the first time, I was joking with myself: “Wake up! Whew, what a nightmare. So glad that’ll never happen!”

Right now at least, I’m employed, safe, and have my wife here, a ton of family (we had a 20 person zoom the other day), and - of course - you all. It’s spring, too. Imagine this in the deep winter. But, I worry so much for the many people whose lives have been blown to hell by the shut down, and those fighting the virus in the themselves and/or in others.

I vote for a world where no one owes any rent or loan payments to anyone for the next two months.

Hi, @Cherie

I’m not sure we’ve met. I’m a very long time denizen, I mean, member, but have been out a lot due to reasons.
I’m glad this thread is one outlet for talking and maybe I let for support.

Speaking of being “out” (we’re not talking closets, people”) and “outlet”, how about this for your not-yet-not-husband”.

My Outs.

“Yes, well, my Outs is being a complete jerk this week, you won’t imagine what he’s done.”

It has the virtue of making sense, but probably the curse of raising curiosity.

Anyway, I’m glad to hear of progress on the house and other things. As for work, what a tough assignment! Hoping the best for it.

Folks here in Tobago seem to be masters of boredom. The man who ru s the bar at the hotel has been doing so for 15 years. He comes and goes.  Sits and watches the waves. Pays himself for the beer he drinks. Lives to travel everywhere else a few times a year. There are a few hustlers we’ve met, tour guides mainly (not hustlers as in con men, but as in always working, always looking for the next way to earn), but most of the island sits or stands around in a form of permanent non-waiting.

Lovely place, here. Drinking more than usual, which is fun (though fattening). Though, Mrs. JMack and I are such occasional drinkers, that “more than usual” means we each had two pina coladas the other day.  8)

Met a couple from Manchester, who’ve travelled all over the world. Planning to do the round trip of the island with them tomorrow. The husband will drive on the British side of the road, while I navigate. The ladies will be chauffeured.  ::)

Just finished “The Bear and the Nightingale,” which I enjoyed quite a bit. Ordered the next two books, of course.

And trying to do a bit of writing this morning. I like the story, but have no motion where it’s going.

We’re here and enjoying the low key vibe. @Eclipse, have reached chapter 19.
Thinking of doing some writing, but things are soooo laid back.

Well, we’re off to Trinidad and Tobago for a week. Never been there; little nervous because it’s new, but should be lovely. Flight leaves 5 am. Transfer in Miami and then Port of Spain before taking a puddle jumper to Tobago. Land around 7 tonight. Hooray for all day in airplanes and airports.

Should be internet just fine, so I’ll check in and let you know how it’s going.

Have you took the book club read with you, have a lovely time.

Definitely! Read the wolves chapter on the first flight.
