We still have access to grocery stores. And they have special old people hours and we are old people. Dick went to the grocery store while I stayed home and did a CrossFit workout in the backyard.

I'm hoping this workout crap is strengthening my immune system, too. I don't know if it does, but it does burn up some of the low level and constant anxiety about the impending doom promised (probably over promised) by the media.

I saw a muntjac. That may not be because of the plague.

Actually, it may.  Fewer people about means bolder wildlife. 

Whoever thought of fitting a deer with fangs?

I've not seen a Muntjac for several years.  There's an unplanned nature reserve near us, where a triangle of land is blocked off by a motorway and two busy roads.  there's a river running through it so the wildlife never has to struggle to find a drink.

I don't doubt the Muntjac, Kingfishers, and an amazing collection of wildlife still hold court there.

At one point you could walk along the river bed, under the motorway bridge, and reach one boundary of the 'reserve'.  But that was as far as you could get because there was a a sudden deep hole in the river bed, which used to be a prime fishing hole when I was a schoolkid.

I've seen a kingfisher nest in the bank just there, and occasionally on moonlit nights, looking through the motorway bridge from the road road bridge I've seen a heron night-fishing.  It's quite bizarre because you look through the darkness under the bridge and see a pool of light at the far end.  Even without the moonlight there's a fair scatter of light from the motorway and the slip roads.

It's a little slice of 'a land time forgot', and in Spring and Summer, if you look down from the motorway it's a complete wilderness of bramble and wildflowers which have survived, even flourished, since it was a meadow.  I'm sure most people never notice.  I hope it stays that way.  A self contained little eco-system.

Be a great place to hide a body, but you'd have to take it in via the river to avoid leaving an obvious trample-trail through forty plus years of undisturbed growth. ;-)

There are some really clever people out there.

My husband is loving this six feet distance thing. He thinks it should be ten feet with no talking allowed. He's antisocial -so...

My platform thing arrived so I can now do box jump workouts. My gym isn't complete, but it is getting itself fleshed out a bit. Not sure where I'm going to store this stuff when the gym really does reopen. But that is the sole reason I have looked into buying a rack for holding a bar for back squat things and a pull up bar for, well, pull up things.

I found some cool fossils in the riverbed today and had fun walk with Darren and Dogger.

What kind of fossils, Deb?  Sounds like an interesting riverbed.

My first plan for dinner fell through when I realized I forgot to take one of the main ingredients out of the freezer. I had available to me, a backup option and we went with that.
