Greetings from a very warm Melb. evening; 10.15pm, 27C and light drizzle keeping the humidity on full.
Thanks for your questions on "OoRoo", Bluebelle and Boat! No idea where it came from, but now I think I'll drop it after fatgran did me no favours by saying "mostly used or remembered by
older Australians She should know being fair dinkum Aussie!
I could say "Toodle Pip", but I won't!
The very early morning Oldies scrum seems to be settling down after our PM gave a very impressive rebuke together with a well received account as to where we are at; but no idea of course how this will pan out. All that can be done is use commonsense and follow the medical experts!
We need less "Coronaphobia"
Megs I think you'd call them lockdowns when so many activities have been curtailed; no handshakes, no hugging, kissing, no mass gatherings (>100 indoors)
Now Qantas has taken the axe with flight cancellations and mass lay-offs. It's very hard to see how "life" as we knew it will ever be restored, but I guess we'll have to re-adjust.
gillybarb I know you're a Geordie and a devout Republican if my memory serves me right. We met when Victoria B. (my then heart-throb although I've now taken to nurse Jacqui ! ) was the resident punchbag until Meghan came along!
You also introduced me to "Newcastle Brun", although I haven't found any here yet. Must be strong if it keeps those North Sea gales out!
By coincidence, I've started to read one of those many books that I said I'd read when I retired, (29 years ago!);
called "The Doomsday Book" by Gorden Rattray Taylor,
Came out in 1970 and no matter what page it opens at, the prophecies therein are with us now! It's uncanny and definitely worth reading.
Anyway, Good early morning shopping, no fisticuffs and observe that 1.5 metre no-go space between you and anyone else!
