Evening All!; Crunch time is approaching!
Next Monday our Council’s shopping centre visits for us elderly cits. recommence after the lockdown closure. Big decision; stay home and never participate in these “social inclusion’ activities again or “go for broke”!?
Can’t fault the service; bus pick-up at front gate at alloted time on alloted day once a fortnight, 15 min ride to shopping centre, 1½ hrs shopping then bus home.
Only difference now will be face masks due to distancing rules and only 3 passengers each bus trip. (15seater Mercedes Benz)
I guess you will all have to face up to a similar decision soon. My deadline is Friday, which is to be a "Black Friday"
Our "run" is now 25 days with no cases, but the latest UK News is not very good at all.
We had a very severe storm last night; ! rolled into bed at 2.00am and didn’t hear a thing; slept right through it and woke at 8.00am to news that all suburbs had had record rainfalls, lightning,thunder, the lot and it’s “Summer” next week.
Welcome Flapperlady; where are you? It’s just routine, to know what sort of jokes to avoid! Seriously, I hope you’re in an interesting place because although we’ve been in OZ for 50 years, its good to keep in touch even if it’s virtual.
Luckygirl Another aspect of Michael’s trips which is sometimes unreal is when he scores a seat on an empty tram or a funicular railwayin places like H.K. or Singapore which tends to remove the hustle and bustle atmosphere of the location which should be part of the experience.
Regarding his dancing prowess, if you should meet him on a train sometime could you please give him this message from me:
“Find out what you don’t do well, then don’t do it!
Sorry BlueSky! No offence, but you know what I mean!
We’ve just had a Power-Point- type prog of his several trips all around the place and I’m still blinded by the dazzling colours of his rapidly changing outfits.
Callistemon What’s this you say about Strine? I know you speak it after your early years mustering on a cattle station in outback Queensland, but I’ll have you know I speak perfect BBC -English following my grammar school education at an excellent shool in Marlow, Buckinghamshire It also still has slight overtones of my Mancunian origins, like you find with a fine wine!
Unfortunately my voice happened to get involved answering an incoming call on our answering machine and I exclaimed “who the heck is that old codger!", then the penny dropped.. The problem lies with the machine; it’s too old.
Megs It seems like your shielding now is a case of steady as she goes.
Now that our VIC/NSW border is open the TV News showed this evening families being re-united at both Melbourne and Sydney after being parted for months.
West Australia is the only State to retain closed borders, but it has been said for ages that they want to secede from OZ and form their own country!
I’ve seceded from that thread you mention when it began to look like “The Mad Hatter’s Tea-Party so I got out as soon as the rock-cakes started flying.
I see Man City lost again 2-0, so that’s another TV replay I’ll by-pass.
Well, it’s 11.40, wet, but calm and not a sound; just like a graveyard.
