And now he has made masks mandatory in all indoor public spaces where social distancing cannot be practiced. However, there will be no enforcement or penalties.

I think I might order one of those wrestling masks like Ramius has just for the heck of it.
Went out and grabbed fuel for the truck and dinner for me this afternoon, and saw '1' person wearing a mask. That's right, '1'. Demmings can kiss mine (and apparently a whole lotta others) lily white ass. The man is unquestionably illiterate, and people around here have apparently decided to ignore him. A step in the right direction for Central Florida....

He's a fucking idiot. Just a politician even when he somehow got elected orange county sheriff. From what I've been told, that asshole politicized orange county sheriff to a ridiculous level which explains the shit they've seemed to hire recently. Can't wait to leave the orange county area.

I finally noted a couple of things to add to the mask chronicles.

There is one supermarket in my town, the closest in about 30 miles, and they have signs requesting patrons wear masks when shopping. And the staff does there. It’s the only business I frequent locally and my only real source of information about attitudes and practices. Here we have a lot of Hispanics, some of whom were born in the U.S., but it’s hard to know which unless one knows them personally. What seems to be common in any case is that they are most likely to not wear masks as requested. I have also heard that there is a higher infection rate among that group that some have attributed to cultural activity differences. Other than that, the compliance seems to be relatively high here. If I had to guess why, it may be because of the percentage of older people who are concerned about compromised lung function at our altitude.

An exception at the store, though, was an early middle-aged “white” woman without a mask who was wearing a cowboy hat and boots and a SIG P250 in open carry. Open carry isn’t unknown here, but it is uncommon, and she is literally the first and only woman I have seen doing it. I believe she was just passing through town as I don’t believe I’ve ever seen her before—at least not carrying a P250.




Do you really care or even know? 7/93 Nah.

Anybody heard from GA Gator in the last three weeks? No posts after about this time.

I was in the local Walmart this afternoon and was surprised at the number of shoppers not wearing masks. Gov. Blackface ordered them worn inside any business a few weeks ago. I asked the cashier about it and she said Walmart didn't care and weren't enforcing the rule.

Just in the nick of time. Roll Eyes As the cases are starting to subside anyway.

How does one reconcile the wearing of masks when going into a bank? They already tell you to leave off shades and hoodies or whatever could make a disguise.

My local bank still doesn’t permit inside transactions except by appointment, but they do ask to show one’s face for identification. When the branch changed hands some years ago, they briefly had “no hats or guns” signs, but that didn’t last long.

I’m at a park on the lake with my son. There’s a ton of people here, I don’t see anyone wearing a mask. The playground has signs and caution tape around it, but it’s all been knocked down. These people, like myself, seem to be totally over the nonsense.

On the way out here, we stopped at a grocery store and a music store. Lots of masks in the grocery store, and one guy without who was wearing a black t-shirt with an outline of Washington state and a big “Fuck Inslee” on the front and back. He was on his phone so I grabbed my shirt with one hand and pointed at his with the other and gave him a nod and an enthusiastic thumbs up. I think we both needed the grin and laugh it brought us.

The music store had a sign on the door that only two customers could enter at a time and must wear masks. I never see anyone in there, but I guess they’re doing brisk enough business they can afford to lose me at the door. That’s three different places in the last several weeks I didn’t patronize because the signage or being told by an employee I had to wear a mask. I don’t argue, I just leave.

Has anyone noticed someone wearing a mask with no one else around? I did today, a woman driving her car. We were at a 4-way stop so I got a good look and there was no one else in the car not even a baby seat. I don't know if she thought her car had the virus, or she had it and didn't want to spread it to her car?


No car is as much fun to drive, as any motorcycle is to ride.

I see people all the time in their car alone wearing a mask. The other day I saw a guy on a motorcycle in shorts, tee shirt, and you guessed it...a mask. For a couple weeks around here the number of masks seemed to be dropping but the last few days I'm seeing more for some reason. I've also seen them wearing a mask out walking alone on nature trails, etc.

Or, she may have been between two close-by stops and didn't want to take it off only to put it on again in a minute or two.

Today, before I left, I was at the kitchen sink washing my hands and looked out the window. My neighbor was in his back yard, alone, wearing a medical mask. Just sitting in a lawn chair, enjoying the sun.... Roll Eyes

There are going to be some interesting tan lines this summer.

Go to google and search any three digits “new cases”.

Example: 645 new cases

This is probably a dumb question. It's not that difficult to tell that a holstered pistol is a SIG, but how in the world can you glance at it and tell that it's a P250? I certainly can't tell one holstered P2xx from another without a fairly close look.

A while ago, I was leaving a restaurant just as an older gentleman was stepping out of his car (I just laughed to myself, calling somebody else "older"). He did not notice that his untucked shirt had ridden up over the grip of his holstered pistol. No open carry here in Florida, other than law enforcement, so as I passed by him I quietly said, "You might want to adjust your shirt, your SIG is showing."

He told me that it was a P220. I knew that it was a SIG, but as far as I was concerned it might have just as easily been a P6, P225, P226, P228, P229, P245,or P250. All I could really see was a grip panel and the hammer area, certainly not enough for me to distinguish which model.

Because I don't want to do that, maybe someone can just enlighten me about what might happen...

Ok, I need to vent for a moment...I'm pissed. No I'm fucking livid. I'm as angry as I think I've ever been in 25 years. I spent part of this weekend with my parents (both 80+) for Father's Day. Like I imagine most older folks trapped in their homes most of the time right now, my parents have been attached to the TV and hanging on every word these GD liars in the media have been spreading, and they're scared, very scared. My dad, an ex-Navy man, spent part of Saturday telling me how concerned he is I'm out there moving around in public, and how he'd buy me some masks if I didn't have any. My mom, 86 with a serious heart condition has been unable to sleep much of the time, and her doctor is telling her her heart rate and other vitals 'have' to come down or she's going to suffer some more serious health impacts. My request that they turn off the TV, go outside, and sit on the patio was met with a "No, we don't want to take that chance" response. Nothing I tried to tell them about the 'reality' of this virus was accepted.
They're simply too scared. These are good, very normal, people who I'm shocked just how indoctrinated they've become. My mother may not survive this 'crisis', but not because of some stupid bug, but because of the GD garbage media, politicians, and 'expert' liars driving her into the grave. Now I need to go try and mitigate my blood pressure before my eyeballs pop out of my head.
