I was rained on as I walked up my hill today. The wind was blustery and I hoped it might dry me off but the driving rain had other ideas. Still, there’s nothing a few days of drying off won’t put right!
Yesterday, on my walk, I rescued a hen! I was walking past the egg farm. The hens were all out. One had got out and was wandering up the lane looking a bit lost. I knew that its chances weren’t good if it was out over night. A fox would have it. I eyed it and it eyed me. I certainly didn’t fancy chasing it around. I knew how hard they can be to catch. I called to it and amazingly it came to me. I picked it up and threw it back over the high fence. My good deed for today (yesterday).
Meanwhile, in Coronaland, the pandemic rolls on and our inept leaders fluster, bluster and mess up.
Johnson is finally considering another lockdown (too late again). If he had done a two week lockdown a few weeks back we would have got on top of it. Now we’ll probably have a four or five week of lockdown.
The virus is multiplying at a fast rate. It’s far worse now than three weeks ago!!
With 24,405 new cases yesterday and 274 deaths it is already long overdue!!
We’ve basically wasted the summer!! Instead of the stupid Eat Out to Help Out and driving people back to the offices and out of working at home they stoked the fires. If they had only got the track and trace working properly we could have been on top of it.
At least we don’t live in the States – Trump is overseeing a huge surge – 98,859 new cases yesterday and 971 deaths. That’s incompetence for you. He’s been encouraging irresponsible behaviour. Fool.
In Brazil its another 22,282 new cases and 508 deaths. I wonder if Bolsonaro regrets saying it was a ‘small flu’. Fool.
Vietnam – 0 new cases and 0 deaths.
Is anybody asking?
We’re heading into winter – into another mess – no strategy – more cheerleading!
Let’s hope this vaccine materialises soon!!
All the best – stay safe.
