    It was a harrowing experience forced into isolation and being fed propaganda from every source I turned to. I nearly lost my mind but was able to find solace in the 300 rolls of toilet paper I had stacked in the closet. To this day I keep a roll in my safe just in case.

    Hah! I actually DO keep a roll behind the seat of my pickup--have for years. I figure if I ever need it, I'm really, really going to need it.

    I survived the great Walmart toilet paper and water battle of 12 March. See that square in the frame. That's the last sheet from the roll I managed to wrestle from two old ladies from the assisted living quarters.

    .....or if they'd try and shoot you down if we went up and practiced cutting toilet paper roll streamers with the airplane like we used to. Anybody still do that?

    I took maintenance calls from apartment residents. If their home is not on fire or flooding, I laughed and said things like, "yeah, not coming in your home to tighten the toilet paper holder. Tighten it yourself or check back in August."

    Grandma had the afternoons off from work for two weeks, so I did my duty and laid a LOT of pipe.
