National Raisin Day (sun-dried grapes) – “I heard it through the grapevine”
California raisin growers promoted the first National Raisin Day in 1909.

1:30am: Why are we still awake?

8:50am: It’s Friday! Our shoulder hurts.
We didn’t sleep much. Tired but not sleepy.
We finally went to bed at dawn after taking the dogs outside.
And we woke up more than once…. and then it was 8:00am.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We drank a cup of espresso Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
We got the newspapers and brought in the trashcan that stayed out all night.
It’s beautiful outside already. Going to be really sunny and hot here today.

AND DISNEYLAND (and California Adventure) RE-OPENS TODAY!

11:15am: Okay, we drank another cup of espresso after we woke up.
We went back to bed for a little bit, and might have slept a little too.
We also drank a little juice and a lot of water. And we got the mail.
Our shoulder hurts (an annoying pain) at the injection site. 

LISTEN REGGAE MUSIC! Get Ready! Rocksteady! Jah, Mon!
We just got sucked in by Toots and the Maytals today.

Time to take the dogs outside again on this gorgeous and sunny day.

11:50pm: And we’re back. We took the dogs outside and let them enjoy the sun.
Now we’re back in the Home Office and it may be time for us to take another nap.
We were wearing sunglasses and it was still really bright out….
and it’s HOT in the SFV. 90 DEGREES Fahrenheit right now.

12:30pm: We did our civic duty and registered for Jury Duty today.
Citizen JoshWillTravel (now that we are vaccinated)
We were summoned for Jury Duty in January, but we postponed.
Not during a CoronaVirus pandemic (even if we probably wouldn’t have to serve) 
And not going to Downtown Los Angeles (because there’s a courthouse nearby)
AND THEY EXTENDED THE DEADLINE FOR “REAL ID” until 2023.
We stood in line at the CA DMV in Summer of 2020 to get our Real ID license.
Read about it in our previous Blog Post back in the CoronaVirus Diary. F*CK.

Our JoshWillTravel Blog is truly
INTERNATIONAL and WORLDWIDE today!
country
Visits from Six Continents! And it’s still early in the day.
We don’t normally check, but we did today.

2:55pm: And we are awake again. We went down hard and took a nap.
Still tired. And our shoulder is still sore. We took the dogs outside. Still HOT.
We put them in the bedroom and then made an iced espresso. 

WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
179125958_4706685179358011_1551979164637536556_n

6:30pm: We took another nap. Woke up and it was time to feed the dogs.
The dogs are fed. And we took them outside on both sides.
And now they’re chilling’ with us in the Home Office on Friday night.
We made another iced espresso. Feeling tired and not feeling great.
And we iced our shoulder earlier, so it’s still sore, but feels a little better now. 
We haven’t eaten today, so we are going to go make a nice dinner in just a bit.
But first we must play with the dogs…… such good boys.

8:20pm: We made some dinner. And then we ate dinner. Good Shabbos!
On The Menu: BBQ beef bowl w/sautéed onions; a dill pickle, celery & carrot sticks,
and the rest of the iced espresso to drink. Not hungry now.

9:30pm: We took the dogs outside again. It’s a beautiful night in the SFV.
There’s a puppy licking my foot under the desk right now…. yeah Friday night.
So we’ve been doing Youtube.
We got reactions, Las Vegas Livestreams, and Smoke and Scan II tonight.

Watching Andy & Alex react to Edgar Winter’s Live Performance of “Frankenstein”…
Best moment of the night, was when one said “I’ve never heard of George Thorogood”
and then they had their minds blown by “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”

Now it’s time for the new episode of “Top Chef: Portland” from yesterday.
(we actually didn’t watch the episode until early Saturday morning)

5:00am: We woke up early. We may have slept a little. Everything was ‘wonky’ yesterday.

7:00am: We decided to feed the dogs early. So we took them outside.
And the dogs got fed. And they went outside again. And then we put them back to bed.
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
Our shoulder is still sore. We still feel “Meh” but no serious side-effects to the second dose.
{KNOCK WOOD) And hopefully there won’t be any long-term effects to the vaccine.
Didn’t sleep well last night or yesterday, and so, we’ll probably go back to bed pretty soon.
But first, we are watching “Top Chef: Portland – Last Chance Kitchen” episodes.
And it’s making us hungry (of course).

11:30am: We made breakfast. We took the dogs outside.
On The Menu: 2 eggs over easy, bacon, and a quesadilla with salsa verde.

Ripped this:
Betty Botter bought some butter but she said this butters bitter
so she bought some better butter better than the bitter butter
and she put it in her batter and it made her batter better. 


Recapping Saturday afternoon and evening. 
We took a nap, or tried to take a nap. M#THERF*CKER!
TV, Interweb, Youtube, and whatever…. just a blur.
And then it was midnight. So tired of being angry…..

Still “Safer-At-Home”
And one more Saturday night
Feelin’ so alone
(this haiku is from one year ago…..)

Sunday, May 2, 2021 – Sunday! Sunday!

“Life, like a cookie jar, would soon be empty
if you continued to accept the good things it offers
and put in no good things in return.”

4:20am: We woke up at 2:30am. We fell asleep sometime last night after midnight.
Saturday Night Live was on… that’s how we know.
So we’ve been up for almost two hours. And we didn’t eat dinner last night.
We ate a toasted pepper jack cheese sandwich on sourdough bread around 3:00am.
And we just remembered we have a piece of cheesecake waiting in the fridge!
181735401_4714358338590695_4819122047946355907_n
4:50am: Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Eat Cheesecake.
We went and got the cheesecake and made a cup of espresso.
On The Menu: Chocolate Cheesecake (from The Cheesecake Factory
So, yeah, breakfast?

9:20am: ANCHOR’S AWAY! We have liftoff. SUNDAY MORNING.
We drank a cup of espresso and a little orange juice.
We went back to bed around 6:00am and slept a little,
and then we got woken up more than once. FUCK.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. Newspapers are inside.

12 Days and counting.
TWO MORE WEEKS UNTIL WE ARE FULLY VACCINATED!
NO! WE AREN”T COMING TO YOUR HOUSE PARTY TODAY!
And you shouldn’t be having another party today. NO FUCKING PARTIES!
Your last party with people outside your bubble didn’t kill anyone,
so why not potentially expose your guests again? Get them all sick today.

11:45am: We woke up. We took the dogs outside.
We drank another cup of espresso and ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
And we just took the dogs outside again. It’s another BEAUTIFUL day in the SFV.
Not too hot today…. but we’re having a heatwave later this week:Screen Shot 2021-05-02 at 11.46.24

3:15pm: We tried to take a nap., and we slept for almost ONE hour.
We took the dogs outside again. And the neighbors are having a party next door.
Look for another surge in cases in two weeks….. or maybe just go to Disneyland.

169447459_10157655937785899_396149497511911004_n

6:35pm: We ate some salted peanuts and a banana.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. The dogs are happy. 

7:05pm: And we just found out an old friend is in the ICU with Lung Cancer.
F*CK! F*CK CANCER! See out previous Blog Post. F*CK.F*CK.F*CK.
“Please Visualize him breathing on his own. Bathe him in golden healing light.”
Screen Shot 2021-04-28 at 04.24.31

11:00pm: We were watching the TV and surfing the inter web,
and working on this Blog Post.
We were watching A&E’s WWE story on Randy “Macho Man” Savage (who was once our guest when we promoting nightclubs at the KeyClub and Plush Room on the world famous Sunset Strip) and then the WWE hunt for lost treasures. (Jerry Lawlor and Andy Kaufman)
Then we stopped and made a nice dinner.

On The Menu: Ginger beef with sautéed onions, steamed broccoli and carrots,
roasted red potatoes, with a ghost chili BBQ sauce, and a coke to drink
181605398_4716589401700922_957238934664267848_n
So good. We’re so full.
And then we played with the dog, and now he’s asleep on the bed.
Such a good doggie!
And we’re watching another WWE Lost Treasures (Undertaker and Kane episode).
Here’s the thing, we never watched WWE Wrestling.
We used to watch Lucha Libre and local Saturday morning Wrestling from the Olympic Auditorium in Downtown Los Angeles. Old School Wrestling, long before it was a big cable TV thing. Hector and Chavo Gurerro! Los Angeles was top or tier, the Big Show in wrestling, so all the big names in wrestling were here for television. Rowdy Roddy Piper, Andre the Giant, etc.

And then there was a piece of Benes’ Bakery Princess Cake for dessert….
now we are so full again.
