Day 2, of a pair of similar photo contrasts. The magnolias are more beautiful than the cherry blossoms, in my humble opinion. Rarer. Just like the 4 door Jimmy is a rarer beast than a boat in storage. (see yesterday) I don't think there will be another pairing tomorrow. Maybe there will be another pairing tomorrow.

It's that time of year again. Cherry blossoms. There are thousands, maybe millions of photos taken of these blossoms. So I took one too. Again. Same as last year. And the year before. And if I'm lucky enough to survive the pandemic, next year too.

For no good reason I quit drinking for the month of March. And for no good reason I quit quitting drinking one day early. Because I could, after proving I don't have to.

Stuff keeps wearing out. I've got a pair of boots with heals that betray a poor walking technique. And pens that rip holes in back pockets.

Antiques.

As the virus spreads... things of beauty persist.

I wonder if she's praying for something different 3 weeks later?

Short walk. It's cool, I stayed at least 2 meters away from everyone I passed by.

It's the end of the world.

I've had this knife for about 30 years. That little grey thing in the cork screw? That's a screw driver for eyeglasses. I used to wear glasses. Around the time I got this knife I also got my first credit card and I saw that little screw driver in the Swiss Army Knife accessory display case at a mall in Mississauga. I think it was Mississauga. It was $1.99. I didn't have any cash on me so I bought it with my credit card. It was the first thing I ever bought with a credit card.

Well, I guess they are dead now. They don't owe me anything, but I'd have used them for another year if there was still guts in the bottoms of them.

Jug Island, just east of Vancouver, and the view at the end of a pretty easy hike. It's a good way to Socially Distance oneself. The rain is supposed to set in next week. I was hoping for more hiking. I guess you can hike in the rain. But do I want to?

As a pandemic chaos sets in, daffodils and sunshine remind us spring is here.

Apparently coronavirus hasn't scared away new businesses from advertising in the neighborhood. Pretty sure this is bad for coronavirus containment though.

Proof that I got it back together. I only broke one plastic clip that holds a breather hose in place. For 23 year old brittle plastic, that's not bad.

20-3-14

First day of social distancing. A perfect time to swap out the timing belt on my car. Two crescents and a pair of vice grips keeps the cams in sync.

20-3-13

Panic hoarding of soup has decimated the Safeway. Toilet paper, pasta, flour, cheese, and strangely milk, are all sold out. How much milk can one hoard without it going bad? People are stupid.

Work watch. I've been beating the crap out of this thing for eight months now. No, that's not a long time, but it's longer than the last one lasted. And the one before that as well. It's a gooder.

Hail storm. Ice and sunshine. Strange weather.

60mm. Maybe I'll start using a zoom lens again.

Leap year. I turned over the compost today. Wow. Beautiful.

Bike rides to the edges of town are another sign that the season is changing.

This little flowers are always the first time that spring might be coming soon. Rain today but the rest of the week is supposed to be warmer, drier, sunnier.
