In my last place I had a long narrow living room lined with books on the long sides. It was the deadest acoustic environment I’ve ever lived in… and it’s the one thing I miss in this otherwise wonderful place.
That heinous, parping, noodling git was at it again intermittently beyween 15:00 hrs and 18:30 hrs. Since Covid-19 has failed to diminish his lung capacity in any useful way, we shall have to see what a spot of arson can do.
With a flame thrower I hope Gus. You don’t want to be breaking those 2m rules.
Those entirely arbitrary 2m rules, please, dere.
Well, yes … quite.
Coz on the Isle of Man its 3 feet, innit !
Not after Monday it ain’t. See elsethread.
So we can get as close as we like now.
Tell Mr Bee he can keep it! Beauteous beasties but they and dragonflies give me the grues.
A former cat used to catch damsel flies, horrible sneaky little wretch that she was…

Ah, well. He just took a pic (over ages) on our walk, yesterday.
Today, we went a-shopping - no pics available, but hopelessly inept face-covering behaviour and lack of ability to recognise a one-way system*. Ugh. But, we are relatively well provisioned.
*Them, not us.
I find myself unreasonably annoyed by people with masks dangling under their chins. I’m not sure if it’s a slightly better or a slightly worse look than a mask covering the mouth but not the nose.
No, it’s a splendid photie, and kind of Mr Bee to share it with us. I just object to being darted at by glinty things wiv wings. They want to evolve into shrapnel or worse. Don’t trust 'em…
And just as the Isle of Man gives up the distancing, I get a text from the doctors (at this time of night?) telling me that they won’t see me unless I am wearing a mask. I suppose this implies that they may be seeing patients again, which they haven’t done since mid-March,but it’s a funny way to choose to tell us so.
This is not an unreasonable response, Janie.
Good nights to you and all,
Did they specify where you should be wearing it?
Points will be deducted for 'in the surgery ’ or equivalent answers.
The actual phrase used is “a face covering”; then they direct you to a gov site where they tell you how to make a face-mask out of an old tee-shirt.
I suppose therefore that they mean on your face…
