I’m beginning to get used to wearing a facemask! It still steams my glasses up though. Maybe I need one of those medical ones with a filter?
Today I met up with the grandchildren again. We had a walk and ice-cream! Very organised at Mr Moos! A one-way system, two-metre marks, contactless payment and a big marquee tent. They were very busy but it all felt safe. I bet they didn’t do this when the Black Death was around!
There is a lot of controversy regarding the blanket ban on Spanish travel (with a 14-day quarantine on return). It appears that most parts of Spain are no trouble. I can’t help thinking this is political. Back when we were at our peak of infection rate they let 2 million people back with no checks or quarantine. Horse, shut door and bolted, comes to mind.
Our new cases are the same as yesterday – 726 – still quite high. There is going to be a large reservoir when winter comes around. That’s when the surge will happen – far too much complacency.
Still over 58,630 new cases in the USA. I wonder how those people who thought it was just a hoax feel now? Or the ones who thought it was was Trump told them – a little flu? There are now mass graves, death panels and hospitals overwhelmed. Well done Trump – world’s No. 1!!
Today I’ve had little time for any writing but I have played some Little Walter. I haven’t played anything by him for a long while – it’s good to reconnect!
Stay safe everybody! The end is not nigh!!
