Coronavirus and the Empty Calendar Episode 6: Return of the Driver

Starting on Friday I’m no longer working at the grocery store on 3rd shift. I’ll go straight from my last shift into my first shift driving for Fedex within an hour of finishing the previous job.

Coronavirus & the Empty Calendar Episode 1: The Phantom Gigs

Today I was driving to Minnesota to see the Vegas Golden Knights take on the Minnesota Wild (I’m a Winnipeg Jets fan that has a friend who is a Knights fan). Half way to St. Paul, I get the call that the NHL has followed the NBA in Suspending all games until such a timeContinue reading “Coronavirus & the Empty Calendar Episode 1: The Phantom Gigs”
