Hi!Hi! What on Earth is the World coming to? Firstly, the weather was just as gloomy today, dull, wet and cold;
secondly, City lose to Southampton: thirdly, today we hear that Victoria has had its worst day of Covid statistics;
fourthly, the Victoria/NSW border has been closed in both directions!. 127 more cases yesterday and 2 elderly deaths.
Grandmabatty; I think I’ve worked out “drookit” as in “drookit to the skin!” You’ve already made progress with my knowledge of the Scots language; (note I didn’t say “Scotch”). Hoots mon, now we must move on to pronunciation, which has been the bane of my life and spoiled my enjoyment of “Taggart”! Dr. Google must have a cure for it.!
Ellan; “Twinkle-Toes” came to mind when I was watching our multicultural TV channel over the weekend when Ladies ice skating came on. It said” ladies”, but Gold, Silver, Bronze went to three 15 year old Russian girls.
Boy!; could they skate and their pirouettes etc were magnificent for the height and number of rotations they achieved. I lost count!
I’d buy the sea- gulls an ice-cream if they promised to leave my chips alone! Horse-radish sauce? No thanks, even if it was blowing a blizzard! Only tomato and barbeque here!
Megs; This is probably a stupid question; (we’re encouraged to ask them in computer class), but why the 2 month wait for the barber? Mine works solo and is working only on Fridays and Sats.,but only needs a week’s booking; maybe his customers are hanging on to their thatches in this Wintry weather.!
No phone call from Granddaughter that she’d promised, so I phoned her , but could only talk to her answering M/c. She’s a full-time hospital nurse working with elderly patients, so probably run off her feet!
Our Council lady in charge of our “Oldies” shopping outings rang at 9.00 am ,( didn’t mention she’d woken me up!), to say that partial service will soon be resumed; only 3 passengers due to “distancing” and only 1 hour in shopping centre. I said not just now after my recent skirmish with BPPV, but that bus trip will probably be postponed again following the Premier’s proclamation.
rafichagran My dear Vera always had a Pimms whenever we dined out, and it was always a real comedy to order one from the bar when only students were serving. First it was, “what was that?” followed by a discussion with a more senior member of staff, presumably including as to what type of glass to serve it in!. But they were experts at pulling a glass of beer or even cracking open a bottle of wine and pouring just sufficient into the glass so as not to rise above the “plimsoll” line!
