NewDave: Johnson's greatest is achievement is making that blithe, insouciant lightweight Cameron seem statesmanlike. That LBC interview. Holy Cow! Jul 3, 2020 9:05:04 GMT
walkingdecay: One of the weird things about that stupid virus is that symptoms reappear weeks later. Last week I felt like housebricks had replaced key joints of my body; now I find I can't taste anything again. Jul 4, 2020 7:32:19 GMT
ocarolan: Housebricks for knees? There is mortar this virus than first appears! But sorry to hear that Pete - hope you will recover soon - all the best to you and Mrs Decay - stay safe. Jul 4, 2020 9:46:16 GMT
walkingdecay: "mortar..." I like it! Jul 4, 2020 13:15:08 GMT
walkingdecay: Regarding covid, the echoing symptoms get us down, but under it all we're happy just to have survived it. The media and government made it sound as if anyone in our age group who got it was all but doomed during those early days. Jul 4, 2020 20:21:53 GMT
walkingdecay: I'll echo your "Stay safe" to you and everyone else Keith, as the disease can really knock you about and it's far from beaten yet, but in the event that anyone does get it, they should bear in mind that it's unlikely to kill them. Jul 4, 2020 20:31:29 GMT
walkingdecay: Being as downright frightened as I was only made those days worse, as did my wife's guilt over her unproven supposition that she brought the virus home. Jul 4, 2020 20:40:32 GMT
walkingdecay: Didn't mean to say all that. Mind diarrhoea. Jul 6, 2020 10:09:13 GMT
ocarolan: :bfart: - totally forgivable sign of advancing age, Pete! :old: Jul 6, 2020 12:01:09 GMT
walkingdecay: I've always had it though... Jul 6, 2020 13:03:07 GMT
ocarolan: ... a sign of a well-rounded personality then! Jul 6, 2020 16:37:17 GMT
Akquarius: Pete, I wish you and your wife a fast recovery. Tis virus is a mean little devil. Jul 6, 2020 19:27:42 GMT
robmc: Isn't mind diarrhoea the same thing as a stream of consciousness after 4 pints and chicken vindaloo? I have that quite a lot Jul 7, 2020 11:51:29 GMT
walkingdecay: Thanks Bernd. We're lucky, I think. Some of the after effects that others are suffering make ours look like nothing. As The Mothership said this morning, "We got away with it." Jul 8, 2020 14:21:52 GMT
walkingdecay: Rob: Eruptions at both ends? Jul 8, 2020 14:23:02 GMT *
curmudgeon: Catching up, So sorry for Walkingdecay and his battle with Covid-19. I'm "shielded" -had cancer treatment in 2017, bronchiecstatis from pneumonia and heart stents. I've still worked the allotments,cycled,etc. They'd give me morphine and wait. Jul 9, 2020 10:04:31 GMT
robmc: Well hopefully you'll steer clear ....Eruptions both ends Pete, that may have been the inspiration for Eddie Van Halen! It reminds me of a night out with friends and bootleg whiskey as a teenager, eruptions doesn't cover it. Jul 9, 2020 17:10:42 GMT
curmudgeon: Probably best for everyone to steer clear of Curmudgeon at all times anyway! Jul 10, 2020 19:45:08 GMT
robmc: Except for your (infamous) noisy cat Curmudgeon! Jul 12, 2020 8:45:53 GMT
walkingdecay: Compared to what you've been through our experiences are small annoyances, Curmudgeon. Keep taking care. Jul 12, 2020 11:14:51 GMT
