    I wore mine on the plane, as did about 90% of others . . and half the crew. I brought antiseptic wipes with me and cleaned the three seats in my row, tray table, armrest, back of the seat facing me, seatbelt etc...

    Like chicken soup - can't hurt

    Well the good news is that i ran out of cider yesterday and am now officially over my mini cider hankering, it did leave its mark however.

    Had a couple of hours with 4 others in the allotments this morning after volunteers were asked for to dig up potatoes, onions and leeks for 5 old chaps who have been told to isolate due to age and health concerns and they were worried their earth gold would go to waste.

    I can think of better ways to recover from a cider/beer deluge but we had the lot up and delivered, albeit the olds can't touch their goodies til tomorrow. I am not touching my goodies until next weekend as its back to work tomorrow. Still we got some big smiles which was worth it - i am giving myself the afternoon off.

    Spent all day isolated in the garden and planted bamboo trees all around the parameter of the rear garden to block out nosey neighbours in a few years. Should have done it years ago.
    A job well done.

    ^Sweet! What kind?

    I bought beautiful flowers today, it was the first day I saw tulips for sale in the grocery store. I bought one and also bought one for my 85 year old aunt who is alone. Also did her groceries for the lady who is like another mother to me. Feels good to do good things for others.

    A thread about joy and happiness on Teakdoor??? How f'kin ridiculous.

    The wife has been whinging (nothing unusual in that...) about me going out and the risks of Covid-19, and I have generally stayed home and avoided crowds, people..., but, today, popped to the shop and had a couple of beers with a couple of friends. Out at 5pm, back by 8pm with the shopping, jobs a good 'un.
    How do I post these pictures???

    Decided to watch a couple of Top Gear Specials, chose "Africa" and "Vietnam" which are probably my favourites alongside "Bolivia". Joy is in my world, interspersed by pasting "and on..." and with the slim hope of Betts dying his pooch rainbow coloured, i know if i had that rug i'd be typing dylon on amazon faster than Leo can reply to a post.

    Well i never said it had to be personal but in these dark times it great to hear some positive news - they don't make em like they used to....

    Coronavirus: Captain Tom Moore raises more than 8m for NHS




    A 99-year-old army veteran who has raised more than 8m for the NHS said the fundraising has been "completely out of this world".

    Tom Moore aimed to raise 1,000 by completing 100 laps of his Bedfordshire garden by Thursday.

    "Every penny that we get, they [the NHS] deserve every one of it," he said, as the total exceeded the 5m mark.

    Mr Moore began raising funds to thank the "magnificent" NHS staff who helped him with treatment for cancer and a broken hip.

    With the aid of a walking frame, he hoped to walk 100 laps of the 25-metre (82ft) loop in his garden in Marston Moretaine, in 10-lap chunks, before his 100th birthday.

    Just how many days did the kids get a laugh out of you wandering around turning the place upside down? I only mention this because one of my darlings decided it would be fun looking through passports and decided to hide mine, not my Mrs, mine and one week before we were due to fly. I severely impressed upon him just how close he'd come as a 10 year only to spending every summer and other holiday with the Auntie he so loved .... love her she has never had kids. She doesn't get them and treats them like pets; its water, food, bed and what the fuk else do you expect from me.

    Well, this is a turn up for the books...work is saying that I can be paid about 36%/month instead of unpaid holiday. Free and paid for it, life just got better.

    Indeed, I've been furloughed on 90%.
    No doubt they'll grab it back over the next decade, but for now two months paid leave is damn reasonable.

    A 110 million payout. They must be saving a lot of money by significantly reduced claims for vehicle repairs.
