many,many years ago i went into a florist shop and ordered a wreath and a sympathy card to be delivered to my home .the sales lady looked at me and saw that i wasn`t very old and offered her condolences to me .. i apologised to her and said oh no ,nobody`s died ,it`s just that my wife has been going off lately about her turning fourty ,so i thought i would commiserate with her by doing this.. on the other hand when i turned fourty i went out and bought myself a pair of ice skates ..

so we've all been locked down and there's only so much netflix / prime / disney / hbo you can watch and computer games you can play.
what has everyone been doing to pass the time?.
when you're completely stuck inside and working from home it can get a bit boring staring at the same walls all day and then in the evening as well.
I have a lot of projects on my wish list. But, I work in healthcare - there's been less free time and no lock down for me.
Did enjoy reading everyone elses and seeing the pics. Thanks for sharing

is there anything interesting we should know about?
June 30 2015 was my last meeting. Quit cold turkey.
1 elder stopped by as he was driving by and saw me mowing my yard about 2 years later and apologized for believing all the bs my ex wife was spewing for 14 years.
It's now 2020 and apparently the world is ending and it's the great tribulation and all the people that said they were my true friends and loved me for 30+ years haven't said a word to me since 30June2015.

seriously, i can't help wondering whether their hiatus from meetings and service will alter their post-covid-19 lifestyle once they experience the freedom of life in the absence of the hamster wheel?.

we hear how the economy is much healthier now.
are you better off than you were before, or the same or worse?
way better than a few years ago (when I was a JW)

never knew there was a jw connection, but episode 1 clearly shows awake magazines.

my wife and i have always shared naked photos respectfully over the years.
being the only thing to fill that void in our relationship due to being apart.
recently my wife has become jehovah, and we’re not sure if my wife is allowed to respectfully share herself with me while i am away.

i know there is a huge college/university lobby here in the us that lives off of students paying, in some cases, enormous amounts of money just to attend.. putting politics aside, if that is possible, (and i am not a bernie sanders guy by any means), but how can we pay for pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, elementary school, junior high, high school, and then throw a huge debt to someone who wants to continue learning?
can't the us (public and state universities) afford four more years for young people to get on a career path without having to, in some cases, take out a mortgage/loan more than the cost of some homes?
then, (and nothing against immigrants, i am married to one), but then the us has to "import" students from other countries to fill the needs that we should be supplying here.
My workplace (in the US) is offering a benefit - Free tuition & no cost for books for a college education at an accredited university. I am just finishing my 3rd term.
There are other options vs a large student loan debt.

if you have one, do cops stop you to make sure it is not too dark?
My last truck had 20% tint on the back door windows and rear window. I added 20% to the front windows. Illegal in my state. In the 6 years I owned that truck I was stopped by the state police 3 times for tint. It was always the same situation. Out in the middle of nowhere, cruise set at exactly the speed limit, and no other cars around. I'm guessing they were bored. Never any ticket.
This truck came the same, 20% on back door glass and window. I put 5% over the 20% on the back doors and window and added 5% to the front doors. You pretty much can't see in. Truck is all black too. Had this truck 3.5 years so far. Haven't been stopped yet. A couple of state police parked in the middle of the highway have looked up and watched me go by, but haven't been stopped yet. I'm surprised I haven't been. But there is a sheriff in my county with a very similar truck, maybe they think it's him.

i am so sick of this cult, this religion has such a grip on her.
since i left in 2014, things just are getting progressively worse.
and she it's just getting deeper and deeper.
More good advice in the first page of this thread then I saw in nearly 40 years of being a JW
