    Been tinkering on the Camaro since I'm working from home now, I get a little time after I stop for the day which would typically be my 45 minute ride home.
    Mornings I'm taking that same amount of time to exercise.

    Working from home saves me almost two hours of travel time each day.
    Lots of yard work, sorting leftover parts from the 73Z resto, restoring a cargo trailer, etc.
    I have plenty to keep me busy.

    I wish I could, but as a small business owner that falls under the 'essential business' category, I'm still up at o'dark thirty and off to work. It's a double edged sword...I need to keep my business going and be able to put paychecks in my guys hands, but also wish I had the time to catch up on personal car/house/yard projects

    I got side tracked this week on my car projects with all the free stuff I got. Yesterday I work on a Free Goped. The little thing is pretty cool. I figured out it has a torque convert on it and that was low on fluid but some in and much faster, than the engine started to go lean, no filter in the tank so must be clogging up the carburator.

    Not really. I seem to be just working more. I feel VERY fortunate that I can work from home and get a full pay check, at least for now and I am actually spending my commute time working. When I am done work, it's dinner time and then I am too tired to do anything. I try to get a 3 or 4 mile walk in every day just to keep the body going. Sucks getting old.

    It also depends if you are still working and at least getting an income as well.

    Yeah, but better than the alternative, lol. That's what I always say when it comes to birthdays.
    Also, that's a pretty good walk and surely is very helpful. I think just laying around is what really hurts your health.

    Finished the 358 short block last night. A little paint, heads and an intake and it's ready to race, some day.
