So here. On this so far so safe island, Covid 19 is now out of control in the schools and polling booths. Our premier called an election in the midst of a pandemic. With no votes by mail or on line. I won't post links but you get the picture.
Mask wearing was not enforced in schools, shame on the educators involved and sports meets were just about normal.
Complacency ruled. We were so safe. I saw that in my own building. Darts, coffee mornings, card games, laundry rooms, who needs masks? You're over-reacting WWW! These are seniors who regularly babysat grandchildren and had big family gatherings on the weekends. Asking about their bubbles was to receive derisive laughter.
So here we are now. Community spread and imminent lockdown coming up.
Meancwhile, the hospital called me for a back X-ray on my doctor's orders (at least he's working for me!) and both the nurse and I laughed and laughed. As if.
So on the phone with my sister today she was telling me (she's in Ireland) that some seniors there are opting out of ventilator treatement and choosing death instead. That gave me shivers.
Meanwhile niece's family (she, husband and 5 kids) have all been tested yesterday on a drive thru and so far so good.
By way of light relief I offer you a picutre of my mountain of books which pleases me no end.
