Hi, I hope everybody is doing well and staying healthy!!

As for myself, I'm ok. But there are regulations by law, that nobody has to go out of the house, exept for buying food, visit a doctor or go to a pharmacy. Who must go for the job needs a permit. So if anybody whants to visit me me here in Germany, don't do it right now, you can get in trouble...

There are some people still out-and-about here in Portland, Oregon, USA.
But traffic is pretty slow here.
I did go shopping yesterday. I didn't "stock-up" but I got food for a week or so.
Later today, I will go outside for fresh air.
Near my house is the Moda Center Arena and Veterans' Memorial Coliseum...
Both are closed for Covid. So, I have been going over there to play guitar as the sun shines.
(I don't have a back-yard) So, I enjoy the trees and flowers over there.

Everybody stay safe.

Things are starting to tighten up down here in Australia as well. They've closed a few of the more popular beaches in Sydney as too many people were on them, too close together.

However, the general population are not confined to self isolation yet. But I guess that will come in time. People who've recently returned from overseas are required to self isolate.

Only Australian citizens or permanent residents and their immediate relatives are allowed to enter the country, along with New Zealand citizens who live in Australia, of which there are many, are allowed to enter the country.

I expect things to change down here though as infections are on the rise. The situation is changing every day.

Stay safe.

Governor said we should all kick back. Well, heck, you don't have to ask me twice for that. For today's round I had 12 alpine ski events saved up on the DVR, so I rolled a few rainy day logs onto the fire and reclined for a solid four hours of downhill and super G with guitar in lap (1771-2). I'm just glad we did our typical 6-week grocery stock a couple of days before the rush started. I don't necessarily fear the virus-- but more fear the nuts in the stores who fear the virus. I am sending great wishes to all fellow OFC pals that you and your loved ones are able to avoid both! Sad condolences to anyone worldwide who has not.

PS: Somebody please post something good in the For Sale forum. When are they mailing the checks?

Don't think so. I read an article that one of the amendments currently under negotiation in the bipartisan committee trying to work out the differences in order that the bill may become law is that no one is allowed to buy guitars with their checks!!

Took the Ute up to the cabin. Can't get much more sheltered in place than that. I only saw about 10 people the last 4 days until we started the drive back. The Ute got a long overdue rehash of all my Jim Croce tunes.

It's in the playlist. It might be the first one I learned, at least he intro. I never learned the rest until StephenT sent me a tab. I need to use all this extra time to remember the old ones and learn a few "new" ones. Ed Sheeran's "Supermarket Flowers" is on the to do list.

I broke a couple of fingernails pulling up carpet at the cabin. It puts a damper on my fingerpicking. That's my new excuse.

I wish I had a new excuse. Our cabin is 1,100 miles from where I sit, snowed in I'm sure, and I don't play any better there than I do here anyway, so I guess I''ll just have to default back to 'no talent' as usual.

Love O Fair what are you looking for???
I was laid off work last friday and who knows when things will get back to normal so having more guitars that any non-professional needs I'm thinking about letting a few go to new homes.

What would catch you eye an Adamas 1680 slothead perhaps

Or a Nakoa Crafstman N768 Elite

Or how about a Custom Legend 1759 12 string

hallo, I'm Tiziano, I live in Italy, in one of the most front-line places: Veneto. Our Healthcare (hospitals etc.) is considered an excellence. Well we are collapsing. Let alone in places where Healthcare was not efficient. I've been at home for a couple of weeks. It is only a matter of time for you. You are many. Move as little as possible. It is a tragic thing. It's a war. I know that you pay a lot for health care. Stay indoors.

2WD... very sorry to hear about your lay-off! Hopefully a revolving door will open soon and let you back in! But it doesn't mean that outlandish dreams aren't still free, so still waiting for you to part with that Caddie green 1769 for charity. (I did say "outlandish", right?)
In the meantime.. it's all about that check.. 'bout that check.. no money.

PS: That N768 looks so very yummy! Are the eppies on those surface or inlaid?

LOF thanks for your kind words hopefully it won't take to long for things to improve for us all

The N768 is a 1992 and has overlaid/outie Epis

WRT the Caddie CL I'd sell it for the right price but I'm looking to be the benefactor of charitable considerations right now not the donor.....but keep dreaming.

This is on YT and FB. But some refuse to visit FB and I understand that sentiment.
So, just something for a Covid-19 day.

I would be, but there is a "Stay Home" order.
I was staying-in before, following the "Stay Home Request"
before Guv'nuh Kate had to make it an order.
I do have to go shopping tomorrow.
