We are fine here. Wife is working from home now after I setup an office and equipment for her. I’m not working, having been laid off at AT&T last October along with 7,000 others (they have been doing mass layoffs every six months). I decided to use the life change as an opportunity to get back into flying for a living. I started talking to the airlines and they were gung-ho to put me to work even though I am getting close (within 3 years) to the age limit. They said that was no problem and they were happy to get someone even if it was just for one year), so I pulled about $40k from my 401K to refresh or complete all of my ratings and currency and get all my records in order. I was just about finished when this virus hit and sunk all of the airlines. Given the upheaval, I’m doubtful that things will return to a hiring phase before I age out.
