Stay safe my friends. God speed to anyone inflicted. So far Rich and I are fine as are our families. Praying for an end to the madness.

We now have 6 cases in Alabama. So, we went and had a pitcher of margaritas to treat it from the inside. Came home and washed my hands and now working on a case! Alabama is ready for a diarrhea pandemic. There is not a roll of toilet paper left in the stores.

Regarding TP; They say back in the day that Sears catalogs were useful. You know "read a page; tear out a page..."
Don't have any first hand reports, tho....

I'm taking the social distancing to heart. I'll be working on the boat until the all clear notice from the health department. Tom

Rich and I are also staying close to home. I recently epoxy coated the new Torpedo hood scoop and waiting for it to cure for a few weeks before the Clear Poly U. In the mean time, I started working on the Torpedo X0.6. That will keep me busy for a while.

I find that putting on my shop apron and safety glasses and heading into the workshop greatly improves my social distancing, from family, friends, and neighbors! I'll remember this when they want to go tubing a few years from now.

Stay safe, everyone!

So whats the deal about the toilet paper,??
I can somewhat understand buying up some foodstuffs, non-perishables, etc.
But toilet paper??? Why?
What am I missing?
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

If you don't have food, you won't need the toilet paper.

JT Catalog was handy to flip through and compare while I was building. Now I just go on-line. I'll keep it just in case! It was my Sears Wish Book.

The toilet paper obsession is not unique to the northern hemisphere. Down under we are having the same problem???? The slang name is a dunny roll. See https://morningmail.org/ballad-of-the-dunny-roll/
