Jan, that is not good news. I'm assuming the health department is going to test all of the residents. Nursing homes and rehabs have been hit hard here in Florida. They are now calling Florida the epicenter of Covid 19.

Track suit.

Sweat pants is the lower part of a track suit. The kind of thing people wear over short to the gym or sport, or before doing serious exercise, in colder climates.

Hugely popular in the 80's and now downgraded to drack wear.

Oh, here we call them sweats, joggers or yoga pants. Slight difference between them but all very forgiving if your tailored bottoms no longer fit (guilty).

Bizzarrely, as I've been working from home for ages, I'm finding that I'm actually dressing more smartly during work days, and wearing make up at home - now I have to attend video meetings. Weekends all bets are off, though.  :icon_mrgreen:

I have a friend whose boss makes them keep their camera on all day so she can keep an eye on them. My friend needs a new job and not just for that reason.

There is definitely a mental thing about getting dressed, and if I am having a bad day I will make myself do it, just to kick my frame of mind into a different state, sometimes it helps. But otherwise I prefer to save on laundry.

This from the Internet:

'A friend of mine is visited by a cat every afternoon. One day the cat turned up with a GPS tracker on his collar. The next week the cat's owner turned up and asked my friend if he could not feed him, as the tracker revealed that the cat had been visiting six different houses in his daily travels, and yes, he was a chonker.'

This belongs in the lighter side because it's comedy of the absurd.

That joke was originated with the Cabbage Patch dolls craze.

"In 1983, a Wisconsin radio announcer joked that a B-29 bomber would drop 2,000 Cabbage Patch Kids into Milwaukee County Stadium. People should bring catcher’s mitts, and whoever grabbed a doll needed to hold up their credit card to be photographed.

At least a dozen people actually showed up."
