I hear you Jim. Same thing here. The phone is starting to ring.
On the bright side I got a haircut today and out of a population of 5 million in our province there was only 2 new cases reported yesterday.

We'll got into the TM oil change early this am. First quick oil change since I put in a ball valve on the drain hose.

Placed 5qt empty and ball valve in funnel and opened. Went to side door to swap the oil filter. Spinning filter on I hear a dribble.

WTH is that? Lean toward the seats to find me ball valve wasn't in the funnel mores.
Damnit and a roll of paper towels later with some kitty litter.

I started my 3 job day.
Booking about 3 jobs a day. Nobody has cancelled.

Let's get this country back to operations.

My restaurants were hustling up and getting scheduled last minute for next week.

Waiting to see if couple of restaurants on the schedule for next week keep on the schedule.

Residential only a couple changed their minds to cancel... Two dentist offices this morning, finish one resort (even though they cannot open now until June 1...

One of my large Restaurants called and canceled for next week.

Watching the news tonight and disheartened by Governor BS....

We just don't know about MN right now.

Churches (from all denominations) have lawyers hired and have announced they are opening this weekend against Governor.

Minnesota Nice is being challenged....

Feeling very close to back to normal here. I think you are allowed to travel here again. If State is below 700 they can come here.

This has been very tough for me. I thought I was pretty smart setting up a High End Vacation Rental Business. Did not see this coming. Higher end rentals here are Germans and New Yorkers. It has been tough watching so many guys do well and me dead...almost nothing. I have been marketing during this thing so maybe that will pay off once our Vacation Rental market is normalized. Don't get me wrong... I'm very glad many of you have had work. Just tough to not have work when guys are talking about how many jobs they did and how much money they made. Glad for you and it sucks to be me...at the moment.

I can't for the life of me understand how people can pack into Home Depot but can't go camping or boating. As far as church, a judge ruled against our governor here in N.C. so churches can now meet indoors with less than 10 people or outside with a larger crowd. I'll be preaching at a small church this Sunday. You might see me on the news in handcuffs if the crowd is over limit.

Hang in there...not to much longer I think that It's going to ease up... And when it does everyone is going to want everything at
once....my carpet cleaning company took a big hit because a huge amount of my clients are retired and snowbirds... But the momentum seems to be picking back up...

to tell you the truth, I thought I would be booked farther out in advance by now. Next week was full and the following week almost solid. Then two jobs next week moved to the 2nd week of June and with the holiday weekend, dont think I can fill them in time. Little hiccups but still cleaning every day.

Churches could open in Oklahoma last week. My church looked like Nov.19 except no hugs🤷🏼‍♂️ I didn’t go, to be socially correct, but didn’t matter. My customers will open this weekend, but ushers will seat people. Pews are closed off and marked with positions space out. They are serious. We shall see. I will attend mine I think.
