LOCKDOWN ~ Its driving everyone *Stair Crazy*  cant visit yer Granny - the Park - the Flicks or even McDonalds !  We are all starved of Social Intercourse because of the *Six Foot Rule* Next thing is we*ll all be wearing Canadian Bear Bells !


HUMANS are very Sociable Beings ~  we all need

To socialise ~ to play - to hug - to drink - to breed

TOGETHER ~ Like Birds of a Feather !

Into the Hills or onto the Beach

Any Wide Open Spaces ~ that we can reach

TOGETHER ~ whatever the Weather ! 

We gather in Churches ~ to Sing & to Pray

We gather in Dance Halls ~ to Swing & to Sway

TOGETHER ~ we*ll be parted never !

Schools are great places where our Kids can LEARN

Fact*ries & Shops where oor Folks can EARN

TOGETHER ~ Learnin* & Earnin* ~ we go Hell for Leather

We all love Sport ~ Tennis - Swimmin* an* Football

Which we play TOGETHER ~ sharin* oor Footfall

TOGETHER ~ will we give it up ?  NEVER ! 


COVID 19  ~ spreads through contact ~ so please ISOLATE

Stay in your HOME ~ chat on the PHONE ~ dont CONGREGATE

LIVE APART !  It breaks my Heart ~ how did it Start ?

I guess it spread from George then to Ruth then to Fred (ill in bed !)

Because we were TOGETHER ~ forever whatever the Weather ! 


Thanks for visitin* comments welcome ~ love Brian & Angela ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿค๐Ÿ’™


We both love this song by Gilbert O*Sullivan ~ it drips with the Pathos that is needed at this very testing time. It deals with the loneliness after Death ~ which thousands are now facing ~ and also the sad aftermath of being *Jilted @ the Altar !* Angela & I were fortunate to be able to *Tie the Knot* just before the Axe fell ~ although on a much reduced scale ! However it does pose the QUESTION ~ will all the postponed Weddings actually survive the Lockdown ?  We all enjoyed the uplifting message ~ last night ~ straight from Heart of Our Queen Elizabeth II ~ AMEN !

    A fine write A&B.
    Fido is on his best guard-dog behaviour, if anyone gets too close to me - Woof!
    A few people forget to distance still. The alarm bells ring in our head - 'SAY something, or DO something quick!'

        ANGELA HERE - HI UNCLE MIKE - Un;ess they have visited a Hospital lately - the *Public* have no idea the Pressure we are under just to keep in equlibrium. The whole idea of LOCK DOWN is to flatten the curve of those inflicted with CORVID 19 each day to enable us to cope - OK. It is a logical constraint to apply ! However there are always those whose Mantra is *Laws were made to be broken & dont apply to me* It the NHS is to survive (and not break under the strain ) we must all TRUST & OBEY - AMEN.

        Blessings to You & Yours
        Love A & B ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›

        Yes always together whatever the weather - You outlined the predicament of society so well here dear duo - we all have to grin and bear it together for a while to fight this vile virus and as our monarch said - "we will win" -- great that you chose one of my favorite singer-players whom I have sadly neglected for ages - always loved Gilbert 'O Sullivan's appealing songs and good to read the words as he sang it. Keep taking care and stay well .................... x Fay

          Thanks for your Comment FAY ~ and your appreciation of Gilberd *O* WE thought *Alone Again Naturally* was a fitting tribute to all the elderly Shutins without a Garden ! Angela & I are fortunate to be Married & have a nice Garden ! When will it ever end ? I do worry about Angela but the Orthopedic Ward and the Physio Unit are in a separate building from the ICU.

          Blessings & peace & joy
          Love B & A ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›
