So here we are again " The more things change, the more they stay the same!"
All the wise men, and women keep saying "things will be OK when we come out the other side of this", whatever that means! I'm not too sure what's waiting on the other side, but "things" will certainly be different!
I'm mindful of Private' Fraser's catch phrase "We're doomed I tell you; we're all doomed!
That came to mind when Callistomen said that their village hall was closed and I thought where on earth would Captain Frazer and his Dad's Army meet for training to repel this invasive virus?
You will be pleased to know, although many Sydney-siders won't, that Bondi beach and others have been closed for the duration. Apparently our PM was not best pleased to see hundreds of beach goers cavorting there yesterday in defiance of the new crowd regs. You can't say we are not taking this crisis seriously.
Mind you, if you are looking for a bit of light entertainment, the travel section of our week-end paper tells of a past-time called " Coasteering" off the Isle of Skye; "Thrills and chills with a leap of faith in Scotland." Apparently you need a wet-suit as thick as rhino hide! You could forget all your troubles forever!
fatgran I don't think your "No visitors" sign will work! Your elderly BIL will obviously think, "I'm family, not a visitor"
Place a garden fork at your front gate with a bucket of water, a bar of soap and a notice saying, " Thank you for offering to help dig up our spuds round the back! When you're done please wash the fork and of course, your hands!"
If the soil is a bit on the muddy side, he probably won't take up your offer!
My carers have adopted a new procedure because of coronaphobia; they now have to ask me 3 questions before entering; have I done this; been anywhere? etc The nurse (Chinese) Juan, from a different company didn't ask anything, but time will tell I guess. They all know that my front door is unlocked so they are usually in the house before I know it!
If I happen to be on the throne it saves them having to wait on the front doorstep!
That's another Sat. without football, but thankfully repeats of everything are on the PC. Currently into Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Always good for a laugh.
