    Yes, it's evident that your kitchen personnel have changed.

    My name is a stylized "Tree Guy." I'm a Certified Arborist, owner/climber of a busy tree company.

    I guess most of the other 100 residents prefer eating out of Styrofoam Plates in their apartments.
    I am enjoying my own company for this mornings breakfast and eating on a nice plate.

    The air outside is very smoky and has been for the past week. I'm glad to be inside.

    Yeah, I could eat in the dining room by myself but that would be silly when my husband is dining in the breakfast nook. :D

    Can you call some of your resident friends and ask them to have their meal at the same time you do in the dining hall? You could holler across the room to each other.

    It's hard to holler or eat while wearing a mask?

    Don't you get to remove it when eating?

    It's Spaghetti and Meatballs/Green Beans/Spinach/Garlic Bread---Residents are still staying in their apartments eating on plastic plates.

    Good for you for getting out of your apartment.

    Here's a pic I took through my front window a few years ago. The turkey are thick here.

    Dunno why I feel like posting this here.

    Lon, it seems so lonely eating alone in that large area. I'd prefer ordering my dinner in styrofoam and hanging out close to my TV. :D (Or making my own dinner... do you have a kitchen in your apartment?)

    If I recall a prior pic correctly, there are staff in that area, distancing in a social manner. So there are likely other humans there with whom to engage in distant discourse.

    Funny, I was just reading an article hypothesizing that intelligent people tend to be loners. But then I saw it was written by a woman who lives in Brooklyn, and she was trying to make the point that you must be of higher intelligence to live in ‘unnatural, alienating’ settings of isolating high population density.

    *sigh*

    I'm an extreme introvert. The internet is perfect for me; I don't have to actually talk to anyone.
