Shelter in Place

Well, here we all are, in the midst of a pandemic, something I'm sure none of us ever thought we'd see; after all, it has been a century since the last pandemic. I guess we were due.

Of course, it has all been made much, much worse due to the incompetence of our... I don't even know what to call him anymore. I think this iteration of the corona virus is the manifestation of the world being sick of Trump (#fakepresident) and his ilk. But, you know, let's not digress too much into how the current administration completely bungled its handling of, well, everything, mostly due to the fact that the idiot-in-chief wanted to bury his head in the sand and pretend that nothing was happening. The fact that he doesn't already have COVID-19 is proof that there is no god nor justice in the universe. I mean, fuck, Tom Hanks and Idris Elba have it! How is this okay?


Out here in the Bay Area in California, we are on "shelter in place" orders, which means don't leave your house except for essential reasons. Including work, unless you work in something that is considered an essential industry. So, yeah, stores, non-essential stores, are all closed. Or supposed to be. Schools are closed. Life is, effectively, on pause. Or something like that.

Watching the case numbers grow across the US, I expect more areas to follow suit.

So! Need something to do while you are supposed to be in self-imposed -- or government-imposed -- isolation? Here's a free book! It's wacky fun about an angry tea kettle and a flying cat! Read it yourself or read it to your kids. It's free! And, hey, I don't really do a lot of free! promotions these days, so take advantage of it!

Pick up your copy of What Time Is the Tea Kettle? today!

And, you know, pick up some of my other stuff, too. That would be awesome.
And don't forget to share!


  1. Didn't you know? The corona virus is a Chinese leftist conspiracy to disrupt the election. It doesn't even really exist! All those people dying are fake!

    1. Jeanne: Yeah, I've seen that.
      Except they are really dying but it's because it's a Chinese bio weapon meant to disrupt the world economy so that they can take over.

  2. Are we sure Idiot Hitler doesn't have it? I mean seriously. Do we think they'd actually tell us if he tested positive?

    1. Liz: I want to believe that he has it but, unless they've built a robot as stupid as he is, he does keep coming out and doing these press conferences. At his age and his health, I think if he had it, he'd be hospitalized.
      And they wouldn't tell us.
