It was a brilliant because Mr Swan drove me and waited in the car park for me. He had an appt for his second jab next Tuesday. Anyway, whilst I was there I asked if it was possible for Mr Swan to have his jab today as he was already here. The staff were brilliant, got it all sorted for him, I rang him to say come in as they will accept you today....they even brought him to the same cubicle as me. Apparently they had a new batch delivered yesterday and it only keeps for so long so they were more than happy to oblige :-D....such lovely people.
Excellent Swannie.

Done & dusted for me too!

We've done our bit to keep everyone safe :)

We arrived back yesterday after spending a week in Mexico. We had to have a Covid test (done at the resort) and of course a negative result before we were allowed to fly back.
The flight was almost full and everyone had to wear masks except while eating or drinking. Apparently the virus must not attack you if it sees you are taking on sustenance!
Anyway there we are, about 200 people, wearing masks, when Mrs Bob turns to me and points out that everyone on the plane has just tested negative for Covid but here we all are wearing masks! Seems silly when you think about it.

Masks are the future Bob.

Got quite attached to my Leeds masks :)

Get real
Experts show that even with double masking water vapor particles are still released from behind the masks. Now People will wear masks to Virtue signal... I wear a mask for your protection. There is still leakage

When Corvid first broke i was expected to go into work without any protection whatsoever (if it was the plague i would have refused) the company even put out a statement saying masks are not needed, i think it was after the Denmark study. Now bearing in mind all the elderly and vulnerable have now been vaccinated i have to wear a mask for a 10hr a shift to protect who exactly? Vaccinations are here to stay so what are we worried about? They are already working on a booster for autumn.

By the way i have a new found respect for Surgeons. :) Dry mouth and cough, runny nose and that's from wearing the mask.

He knows more about these things than me.

I've had 5 times more Asthma attacks since masks than before ..can't be a coincidence, they're minor and usually clear inside an hour with rest/Ventolin and fresh air but still

There has been far less colds & ordinary flu symptoms over the last year so they must be quite effective!

By the way you should wash your masks after wearing them.

There are some right grubby masks out there!

Just a thought, if masks are ineffective why have surgeons, dentists, vets etc used them for years and years. Surely no need for them then?

Close up work and prevents fluids transferring I would guess, both ways.

My wife's mother has just died none covid related at the age of 94. When arranging the funeral we have come up against covid rules and regulations.

I came across a poem that captures the feelings of participating in a funeral during these stressful times. when all you can get is a zoom session.

chasing ceremony/convincing myself
by Hollie McNish

i’ll not get to your funeral.
that’s fine.

i know you’ll not make mine.
you hate the fussing anyway.
your favourite colour’s yellow
not black.

on your street, when next door died
too soon before you did
neighbours clapped the passing hearse
as if the corpse were on a royal tour
you turned towards your daughters

here –
don’t you dare do that for me

hair cradled into rollers
each night until the night you left
still lifting life with curls

the laws do not allow me
to stand and watch a lifetime
exit puppet-show-sized curtains
as tears try to console each other
two metres apart;

the only good things
are the sandwich platters
afterwards, anyway,
and we can’t even have those

so i’ll celebrate you here
three hundred miles from home

wear that butter-coloured jumper
you once said made me pretty
wallow in self-pity
as if your loss is all my loss

let lips tremble all they want
eyes swell to embarrassed red
too obvious a grief to meet with any friends
even with the recommended
coffin space between us

no need for all that, huh?
who cares about it, right?
i already said i love you
so many times in life:

each time i said i love you;
each postcard that i sent;
each nightie that you lent me;
each evening that we wasted
watching prerecords of countdown
at a volume that i’m almost sure
has pierced some of my eardrum;
in refining just that splash of milk
to slightly hint your tea with
till you looked inside the cup again
and smiled, and said that’s perfect
