The duck was brined overnight, seasoned with Chinese 5 spice and coarse salt, loosely 'stuffed' with half a n apple, on 375f for almost 2 hours. It was....delicious.

Now, two days after, I'm looking askance at the 3-4 pounds of turkey meat leftovers in the fridge. There were just the three of us: my youngest, Emily and her partner Jeremy. We got the smallest turkey available, it was around 16 pounds. Emily also did her usual pecan and pumpkin pies. The pies are mostly gone, 'natch, as well as the sides. The turkey meat still sits in the fridge, like a gym sock on a shower rod.

As a country, Vietnam has a population of just under a third of the US. They have had fewer than 500 cases out of their 93 million people. And zero deaths. No wonder my friend is in no hurry to return.
Anyway, here are three seafood dinners. To me, they all look delicious. The huge shrimp have a sauce of garlic, butter and sweet chili. Not sure what the oysters have, but it looks excellent to me.

Anyway, a few random pictures. First, Emily's fish tacos. As good as they look

Just figured out how to post with this chromebook, now that my other laptop has rendered useless it's power cord
I have no fear of the overdue civil rights protesters. The BLM, the Antifa, they have my support, for the greater part. The BLM more than the AntiFa...but that's just me.
Emily, my youngest, is making lamb stew tonight, in a slow cooker. The smells have been over-stimulating my saliva glands for a couple hours.

And what do I fucking get?? That I'm living in the, until recently, the main focus of the covid19. Currently New York is battling for first place.
I'm in a two bedroom apt south of Seattle, not too far from the airport. My youngest, Emily, lives here with her husband. They moved to a two bedroom to accommodate me. It's a large complex, probably at least 500 people live here, many, many 6 plex buildings. Neighbors are fine, seems pretty middle/lower class, lots of kids.
When this started, over a month ago, we started getting stuff, hand wipes, sanitizers, amazon-ordered rubbing alcohol and alo gel...is there a 'a' in alo? Aloe? Yeah, that's it. A digression, pardon.
Now, both my daughter and I have symptoms, fever in both cases, cough in hers. Her husband so far has none, we've endeavored to do all the precautions around him and with common articles handled.
So....y'know? This is not how I'd spend my twilight years. Pisses me off somewhat, but hey, that's my problem.
So, you all out there. Emily and I took every fucking precaution for the last three weeks we could think of: glove when shopping, wiping down the cart, wiping down everything that went into the cart, wiping the screens and keyboards of the self checkout. And yet, we probably have it. I'll know this coming week about my swab done on Friday.
Stay home, trust no one. Lol.

I'm doing ok, the CHF progresses, I get tired early, am usually in bed early.
Made ribs at my daughter's tonight, she made the bbq sauce, better than any commercial sauce I've had.
Hope you are all well.
