I put on heels for work, and then tried to drive in them, something I haven’t done since about mid March. What a debacle!

Believe me when I tell you that ploughing into joggers while shrieking ‘sorry sorry sorry’ is not anything you need to see!

Heels and joggers???!! It looks like it’s pretty bad in Texas.

Hello Norm!

Sorry gang, I didn't lose interest... It all just went a bit mad here. As some of you know already, Mummy fell and broke her leg. And now she's in hospital, very confused and not doing too well.

The hospital was pushing for a nursing home but obviously that isn't going to happen so we've bartered with the hospital that she can come home (to Ethna's house) if they give us a full care package (2 workers, 4 times a day) & all the equipment. They agreed so that's where we are now. She can't stay in there much longer.

Best wishes Beebsy. I hope that your mom is one hundred percent soon.

Ahhh Beebs, not a pleasant situation, that's for sure. Are you able to visit her while she's n hospital? Here, it's an extremely difficult to achieve these days. Your relative basically needs to be on his/her last breaths before they will let you in, fully garbed of course.

Take care dear. Sending you and yours my best wishes that all works out for the best.

Listening to the John and Mary Show while Rebecca makes beef pasties. Her baking skills are pretty great so I'm looking forward to dinner.

This could have gone on quite a few threads here, but this is random enough to belong here methinks.

So, I am a complete idiot. Yesterday at the grocery store, I passed by the cart or two that the store is liquidating because, usually, they have a small amount left and will not be replaced. These things usually sell for ridiculously low prices, but I rarely pick anything up from them (not much of an impulse shopper I guess).

But yesterday, there was a cart full of 200g boxes of truffles that usually go for about C$5, marked down to C$1.25. Best before date June 2021! I love truffles. Who doesn't? So, the idiot, ahem me, picked up ONE box. ONE!!! I had almost nothing to carry for the one block from the store to home. WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?!?!?!?! Idjit.

We've had some protesting going on in town like many other cities across the U.S. with some violence but nothing like Minneapolis. Friday night Rebecca and I heard a helicopter overhead late in the evening as we lay in bed. There were no instructions or requests being shouted via bullhorn as one might expect from a police copter but we learned the next morning it had been a news helicopter covering the protest and they had stopped on an overpass of a highway that was about three blocks from the house. It was generally peaceful though and it eventually dispersed in the early morning hours.
