I'm not all that paranoid about it as some people are. Yes, I know it can be dangerous and, yes, I know you need to be careful. But, until the governor says so, I'm getting out sometime during the day. Usually I just go through a drive through for lunch or supper to help support the local eateries during all this. I even take trips to Walmart, but I wipe off my cart handle and don't stand too close to anybody. With the temps hitting 80 tomorrow, my fishing poles and I are headed to either Kentucky Lake or Kentucky Dam. There will be plenty of people out fishing, like last week when I went over, but everybody keeps their distance. Hell, I can't even get a fish closer than 6 feet of me! But I know people who are freaking out over all this. There was something in this country for a long time called common sense that helped keep people from catching much of this. But common sense hadn't been seen much in a long long time.

Our Walmart, and I've heard of others, have marked off every 6 feet at the register so you can keep your distance.

Did you listen to the Governors press conf today?



I think KY will issue the 'stay at home' order sunday, to go into effect Monday 30th, he didnt really give time tables, but said KY is going to have to dig deeper these next 3-4 weeks, (thats a pretty good sign, things are about to get tougher).


Nothing wrong with fishing at all, as long as people are not close together.

Amen to that, gman!!
They are doing the best they can, and I am sure to tell them; "Thank You for coming in, and doing what you are doing. It makes a HUGE difference for people right now"!

One of our managers last week, at a store I was in, anytime he saw people standing close together in line, he would loudly announce to them that there was a 6ft social distancing order in effect in the state, if they didnt comply, they would not be served...get this, some of the people laughed and shook their head, one guy says "where do you want us to stand"...(Can the public really be this dumb? ) LOL


**and keep in mind, these people were not standing in line for groceries or medicine, they were in line to buy cigarettes, lottery, chips, soda, beer, snacks, etc!!
The store sells it. They buy it.
