So, working in the manufacturing sector, we're considered essential.

Get a call from the wife today, she's not feeling well, short of breath, chest hurts , dry cough. Crap. She does a video visit with a doc, they say she has enough symptoms to go get a test. Goes to the local hospital, they check her quick and upon finding here medical history, run a battery of other tests. Everything's in the clear, but they won't do a test on her, because she's not presenting enough symptoms to use one of the very scarce test kits. Doc orders 14 day self quarantine on all four of us.

Great.

So, I get to do what work I can from home and use a bunch of PTO.

On an up note, I think just for ha-ha's I'm going to drag the old 351C from my 71 XR-7 out from under the bench and freshen it up. Already have all the parts, just need to do a teardown, cleaning and reassembly. A quick hone, some new rings, bearings, timing set and a camshaft oughtta take care of it. I can have it swapped out in a day, with a couple days to fit the exhaust.

Hmmmm.....

Hope your wife feels better soon. Will say a prayer that she is NOT infected with the virus and feels better soon. New yorkers are now putting the rest of the country in a shortage.....sad. Comes down to who can yell the loudest I guess. 

Great idea on the 351c. Sally and I stripped a 71 cougar xr-7 down a year ago. We took most everything including the tranny. We couldnt determine if the 351c was any good so we left it behind. Everyday I kick myself for not bringing it home.........Dag nab it.

It appears that, for some, this virus can be dangerous, even fatal, for some...….. Many will contract it and weather it like a regular flu, and many still, will contract it and not realize any significant symptoms. Yes, some people have died, due to this virus, but the level of Media Hysteria being laid on the public is certainly unnecessary, unprecedented, and I'm sure that this thing, like the "Y2K" End-Of-The-World deal, will be looked back on, maybe a year from now, as the public going crazy. So far, so good, for me....and I hope all of you too, but I for one will be so happy when we, as a people, get back to being calm.
