Or Not

Wednesday. Pretty much up in the usual routine and time less the trip to the morning restaurant, reading what I could of the papers while lying on the bed.

The workers who've been examining the balconies on our building recently arrived around nine to examine the balcony on the floor above mine, climbing up to my balcony on a ladder and then removing some of the boards from the bottom of the balcony above. No need to go through my apartment and so no thoughts about coronavirus problems, but they spent the morning banging hammers. Spent this time in the bedroom listening to the news on the radio and reading it on the tablet.

Went to the local supermarket web site to see what would be required to order food for delivery, made a selection and then discovered they weren't able to schedule a delivery this week. Checked Amazon and they were talking delivery of the item I selected next month. Hmm. This is getting much too interesting, maybe check the 7-11 look-alike later today or drive to the supermarket tomorrow morning when it opens at seven. No need yet to get anything right away, the problem is the usual problem of getting me out the door for any reason, virus or not.

The photo up top was taken at the San Francisco 2018 Chinese New Year Parade with a Nikon D5 mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
