Instead of attending to Le Homeschool today, I sewed masks.
Gavin generously donated his old rockets hip bedsheet for the cause.
Hopefully an upgrade from the hankies we wore the day before:
It is absurd of course that our very lives are now dependent upon the equivalent of stuffing a sock in our mouths. (See below.)
Worse yet is the unthinkably horrific lack of leadership from The Resident’s administration, and the unabated adulation of his brainwashed followers. Hopefully they will take his advice and just DRINK THE HYDROCHLOROQUINE. After they’ve shaken each other’s hand at church on Sunday of course. Jebus will save them anyways!
Here’s the tutorial I used:
And FWIW here’s

Another day in this Bizarro Alternative Universe World. Yesterday the U.S. Government changed their website to accommodate the First Son-in-Law’s claim that the federal stockpile of protective gear “Isn’t MEANT” for the PEOPLE, and today we have our actual SURGEON GENERAL (where has he been this whole pandemic anyway?) demonstrating ARTS N’ CRAFTS that might kind of maybe help save our lives a little:
Though I *am* in the process of learning to sew reusable cloth masks, ClaraJane and I tried our hand at Arts and Crafts for the global pandemic.
It has (has it?)… actually come to THIS.
Meanwhile here is the F#cktard-in-Chief doing an inspirational job of (not in any way) leading by example:
And yes we still have Red Hats who STILL agree with The Orange Ass when he brags about doing such an outstanding job.

Song: The Sailor’s Prayer
By: Rod MacDonald
2020-04-03 Quarantine UkeOke #21 – Sailor’s Prayer [3:55]:
The Sailor’s Prayer
Though my sails be torn and ragged and my mast be turned about
Though the night wind chill me to my very soul
Though the salt spray sting my eye and the stars no sight provide
Give me just enough morning light to hold
I will not lie me down, this rain a-raging
I will not lie me down in such a storm
And if this night be unblessed, I shall not take my rest
Until we reach another shore
If the only water left is just salt to quench my thirst
I will drink the rain that falls so steady down
If night’s blindness be my gift, if there be thieves upon my drift
I will praise the dark that shelters me from them
If my friends be drained and weary and it seems their hopes are lost
There’s no need for their bones on this blackened bottom
And if death wait just off the bow, we need not answer to him now
We’ll stand on and face the morning light without him
