Hello again! Nice to be back and thanks again for your good wishes. Staying in bed all day appealed, but I had to get up for a visit and cancel my alarm system before 9.30 am, otherwise all hell breaks loose.! Anyway, I’m feeling much better, so once I was up and not spinning a bit of breaky called.
Callistemon A woolly Doova seems like a good idea, especially as we’re not even half way through Winter yet!
Just to start with a couple of plagiarisms! One of our daily papers runs a daily ‘Odd Spot!”
”Nasty evil spirits who swear at passersby are apparently haunting an English beauty spot. Ghost hunters Christine and Dave Thomas are investigating “Dead Woman’s Ditch” in Somerset’s Quantock Hills, after locals reported encounters with an angry woman dressed in white. “There is definitely something there” said Mr. .Thomas. His wife says that when they went to the ditch, a disembodied voice loudly told them to “f* off”.
Believe it or not!? It’s an English tale!
Grandad 1945 is a “Zummerzet” lad so he may be able to amplify!
Apropos our State lockdowns; VIC’s border with S. Australia is policed at a place called Bordertown, believe it or not, and two idiots turned up in a vehicle, but weren’t authorised to enter S.A. So they turned back, but then tried to sneak across via a dirt road, got bogged down in mud, had to be rescued and copped fines of $1,000 or so for breaching several Covid rules!
And they say there’s one born every minute!
Another major crisis has arisen in Melbourne in that there will be absolutely no Australian “Rules” football this weekend because of Corvid 19. Matches are not even being played in empty stadiums (stadia?), but instead all teams are being despatched interstate to play in venues in NSW, W.Australia and Queensland!.
How that sits with the various States Premiers’ warnings to Victoria to keep out “you’re not welcome!” I don’t know. Maybe footballers are immune!
How the rest of the season’s fixtures will be played out is anyone’s guess, , but thinking of the thousand’s of kilometres between the States and lack of air travel, I imagine they’ll all stay local and enjoy their weather.
A brief look at Good Morning Friday was not very inspiring weatherwise today. Perhaps we should have a “Good Moaning” thread too!
Meanwhile, we’ve had a foul day today, 13C (felt like 6) and rain/drizzle all day; the forecast is rubbish,too.
Now that we’ve got 30+ suburbs locked down under police control with the border line running down the middle of some streets, some smart fellows have asked VicRoads to change their home address on their licence to show they are not living locally and therefore not subject to lockdown in that area! Beats me! Anyway Vicroads have already clamped down on that which in itself would attract heavy fines!
Talking of border controls, it would be difficult to see them being implemented between English counties given the multitude of roads and by-ways between them.
Although Hadrian’s Wall was on the right track, being built to keep out the “marauding Barbarians from the North!”
Wonder how 3 million Anglo Chinese will fit in!? One thing for certain is that they won’t be short of a bob or two!
Good Health I'm feeling much better already!
