Taiwan has done well, so there have only been a few things curtailed. I am on a Dragon boat team, and for practice we’ll have anywhere between 8 to 20 people on a canoe together.

March 13: our office has a regular Friday morning coffee. That was the last time.
My great-grandparents came through emigrating to a new country.
My grandparents came through the Great War and the Great Depression.
My parents came through the Great Depression and World War II.
We will come through this pandemic. Hang on tight to the ones you love.

February 17 at my mother's funeral. (I had been telling her for years that her social life revolved around funerals so I think it counts.) I was crazy busy for the next month getting her house cleaned out and kept talking to my friends about all the things we were going to do when I was done. (I had just retired in mid-January.) The day after I took the last box of her belongings to Goodwill, the city issued stay at home orders.

Sunday, March 15: it was Crappy Action Movie Night at my local sports bar, and all the regulars were there. Probably about a dozen of us. The sports bar was promoting its St. Patrick's Day party on March 17, but was forced to close on Monday, March 16.
