Norman, thatís fine...
You wonít get any more derogatory remarks from me but I will have to stay out of all threads that hang on the COVID subject. I feel very strongly about that and more particularly this week because we had a phone call on Monday gone to say that Margaretís close friend (Dorothy) going back 60 years had died of this virus. We had started out with them in family quarters at RAF Leeming in 1960 and kept in touch and visited all these years. I have to say that I have never seen Margaret quite so upset and in tears when Dave (Dorothyís husband) rang to tell us and he was in a daze. To cap it all, he rang us up yesterday to tell us that he had lost her...he had forgotten that he had already rung us on Monday. That set us both off and I found it very had to control my feelings over the phone. He was totally bereft and lost without her. So,you see, this COVID is causing a lot more harm than we realise, especially when it gets close to you.
I have to admit that I went a bit over the top so I apologise for that. No more Covid discussion for me from now on.
