You wouldn't believe this unless you witnessed it.
Sat in the pub lunchtime today, I watched 2 men come in wearing 19, 14, 15, 20 masks. They ordered their beer, lowered their said masks to taste it, raised their said masks and went outside. Hattie, behind the bar, wondered why I couldn't stop laughing.
Stupidity and paranoia reigns supreme!!!!

"I don't believe it!"

Who said that, I wonder? Smile

I was wondering about that enigmatic post you made this morning, Alan - ?

I'm not denying it, but did you have anything in particular in mind? - I can think of so much! Evil or Very Mad

Likewise. It's just in general otherwise there wouldn't be room and I'd likely have to ban myself.

I took a trip in the 90 to buy some bags of decorative gravel and pebbles for the garden this morning. Annoyingly, the gravel merchants were closed despite what their website said, so I took a drive to the two local DIY chain stores. The first, whose name is comprised of two letters, had virtually no gravel at all and no pebbles. The second, had quite a lot so I bought seven bags and a bag of pebbles.

When I returned to the 90, I saw another 90 had parked next to mine. The owner was walking away from it but looked back at my 90 (an admiring glance, I’d say... Very Happy ) I had a quick chat with him, saying that he’d applied parking rules. Very Happy He said yes, and had taken a picture from his driving seat showing the side view of mine in his rear view mirror. I didn’t have an issue with it as I recognise the 90 having seen it around town for around ten years or so. Next time I see it, I’ll direct the owner to the club. Very Happy

Has anyone else noticed the number of people in shops with face masks pulled down on their chin, leaving their nose and often their mouth exposed too? Surprised Confused Sort of defeats the object of having a face mask... Smile

Agree. I bet it was nowhere to be seen when you needed to pay for the new tyres! Rolling Eyes Smile

At last. Sporting activity this morning. No competition but a satisfactory practice session. A member arrived in his ex military soft top turbo diesel 110 and admired my new bulkhead and heated screens.
The Land Rover cruised back home along the A303 effortlessly at an indicated 70 mph in overdrive top.

Mrs K purchased a new clock in our local John Lewis a few weeks ago and I got around to putting a battery in it this morning. When I opened the battery cover, there was a sticker that said “Made In Chnia “ on it. An attempt at hiding where it was really made??? Confused Smile

Mrs K purchased some socks too, and they were also made in the same country, albeit the label was spelt correctly.

It's virtually impossible to avoid buying anything made in lurgyland. At least my new alternator wasn't.
I made this post while in my local enjoying a pint of real ale Dark Star Hophead.
