The Corona Chronology: Day 36

During the current lockdown/shelter-in-place/do-the-right-thing stasis in our lives, one of the things I do miss is heading out to a local restaurant, where somebody else makes the food and cleans the dishes, and all I have to do is shove things in my mouth. On the flip side, […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 34

Note: I’m once again breaking my “wait two years before you repost something” rule. Apparently, the pandemic has turned me into a protocol rebel. (But not like those idiots with guns who are protesting at state capitals. I never want to be associated with that mess.) I stumbled […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 31

Looking back, I suppose I should have known that this would happen. After all, folks are huddled in their habitations, discombobulated by having their daily routines routed. They are desperate for diversion, and since many of them have forgotten (or never knew, for the younger crowds) how to […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 29

Note: Although some states have begun to partially re-open restaurants, many of us are still limited to drive-thru only (or, like me, we are limiting ourselves until we feel comfortable with public spaces). That being the case, I pulled this little ditty out of the archives. For those […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 28

The Corona Chronology: Day 27

Once upon a time, in the land of Pandemic Trumpmerica, members of the Association of Republican Governors with No Soul had a meeting. The topic? How to re-open their states in the quickest way possible in order to maybe, possibly get a quick pat on the head from […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 25

Howdy Folks, How y’all doin’? Still holin’ up at the homestead and coverin’ your piehole until you can’t hole any more and gotta run to the feed store? Good, good. Listen, I got me an idea for a blog post thingy and I wanted to run it by […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 24

Note: I realize I just posted this thing last year, breaking my own general rule about not re-sharing a piece for at least two years, but it IS May Day. And I don’t have anything else prepared so, yep, we’re going with it…   10 Random and Absurd […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 23

Because we’re all about expanding intellectual horizons here at Bonnywood, I thought I’d share a few terms that have some significance in these pandemic times. Granted, many of these concepts also apply to non-pandemic situations, so feel free to use them in a manner that you find most […]
