You know what it's like. There you are in the midst of a pandemic threatening to shut down Western Civ, what's left of it anyway, so whaddya do? 

Go for an armed stroll 'round town at 11 pm to see what's up. Load up and off you go, born to have adventure, sort of thing.

But what was up? Not very much. Flags were flying but the streets were empty. Had a neutron bomb gone off? Would you hit anyone if you fired a canon down the middle of the street? No.

So I strolled about and went to the downtown filling station for Marlboro Lights, then stood in the middle of the road and took photos. There wasn't any traffic, it's all shut down because of China, you see. Not that it's especially very busy ever.

Heading home, First Methodee was all lit up but no one was home and the Meth Shack was getting it on with a "domestic." I sensibly ignored the furor and strolled by, round in the chamber. And that was that, mission accomplished.

Message? If you're going walkabout, take a gun.

No firearm needed. I take my savage attack Lab, Banner.

Major prayers needed. LindaG lost her house yesterday in the tornado. She, family, and pets safe.

Here in the socialist workers paradise of NYC we have been on lockdown for a month. For our own benefit of course thanks to his holiness Il Duce Andrew Cuomo.

For a big city streets are deserted.

I mostly do at night, Jim, and sometimes in the day. Some say it's your duty if you're licensed. There's a point in that, I think.

LSP said...

Thanks, GL. It was a bit spooky.

LSP said...

Thanks for letting me know, Adrienne. She + family are in my prayers and thank God they're safe.

Infidel, you must feel privileged to live under the beneficent reign of the Great Cuomo!

Does your ruler allow you to leave the apartment?

WSF, sometimes I bring the ferocious Blue as a force multiplier!
