    If that had occurred back when the virus started it would have been headline news and people would have panicked. Now it hardly rates a mention in the media. I guess we have come to expect it and have “learnt to live with it”, as they say. Me? I’ll keep wearing a mask and carrying my own hand sanitizer. Haven’t had a cold or flu since 2019 and I feel it’s a small enough price to pay to keep bug free.

    I started wearing a mask before the government was even considering mandating such use. I received several laughs and jeers from people as I visited the supermarket etc. Luckily I didn’t give a hoot what people thought of my choice to wear a mask. One incident was while I was putting shopping bags in the back of my car. An elderly couple at an adjacent car noticed my mask and I heard the woman say COVID and they both quickly moved away from me. I guess they thought I was infected. It gave me a chuckle.

    Just realized that words like “hoot” and “chuckle” are not in common use nowadays. Makes me sound old.

    Cheers folks.
