Hi! How’s it going in “Soggyland!? Had a quick squint at the Good Morning thread again on the way in and it looks like a photocopy of yesterday’s! Same here! “The Winter of our despair!”
Even more despair today with news that our daily toll of ‘new cases” in Melb., reached 75, yet another increase and back to last March’s maximum.
As a result, 9 multi-story Public Housing Commission buildings containing 3,000 residents have been put into permanent lockdown for at least 5 days! Police are patrolling in shifts of 500 officers to ensure no-one leaves or enters, otherwise fines will be issued and the lockdown possibly extended!
Seems very much “over the top”, but VIC is coming to be known as the Pariah state, as very little is happening elsewhere, “statswise”, although they still practice safeguards such as crowd limitations, social distancing etc.
Believe it or not, there are now reports of people being smuggled across the borders to “escape” from Victoria!
We’ll soon be thinking we are living in La-La Land!
Buffybee Welcome! Long time no hear! Thank you for your greeting. As a “Tequila Sunrise” specialist, I’m surprised at you suggesting taking “more” water with it! The sort of thing my Doc. would say!
We’ve got the full match recorded of City v Liverpool, which I’ll watch tomorrow now that I know City won. Watched the City v Newcastle quarter-final this arvo; I’m not a fashion artiste so I wasn’t taken with City’s “away” strip! More than gaudy!
Jane Thanks too, for your greeting, but what’s this “dodgy jokes” meant to imply? You wouldn’t want to belittle Greatnan would you, because that’s where most of them came from!? Pity we’re not getting any from other contributors, to cheer us up.!
Megs I’m not “back on form” yet, naughty or otherwise and “social distancing” would make it far less enticing.
Ellan I think I’m on the mend, thank you, although the prognosis for BPPV is never encouraging! The Doc. carried out all the usual tests, looking for signs of a stroke, but fortunately found none. You must tell me about your tram driver’s eye (DVDs?) I haven’t found any yet; lots of train drivers’ "eyes.!"
Btw; did you see that message of mine “Mersey Muggers”? I immediately thought of your sea-side friends when I saw it!
*Grandmabatty It’s OK !You’re a friendly non-marauding barbarian obviously stuck indoors because of the “Big Wet” and I’d ask you to knit another “throw” for me, but I’m searching for a new Doona urgently!
Your Leader, I’ve forgotten what she’s called, came out strong saying that Scotland wasn’t going to follow England!
Sounded like she meant it!
