I can't be the only stay-at-home old-fogie.
I'm climbing the walls here.
Serious suggestions please.

Please don't tell me to go out.
Go out?
To where?
To do what exactly?

Answers on the back of a stamp!. eric, I think we are all muddling through in our own way, but would love to be proved wrong.

I have had a 'lockdown' buddy, my ex!. She has been observing the lockdown to the letter. I spent 3 months in my old house this year and enjoyed the massive garden, and open the back gate hey presto a river. I have enjoyed many a great walk along it, feeding ducks and swans as I went. I consider myself very lucky.

Yeah, you're probably right btf.
With your ex.
I'm impressed, really!
It would be nice to jump on a bus and have a wander.
I go out at 6.30 in the morning to do the shopping, I get to the shops, Co-op or Aldi, as they open, and that's it.
I suppose we've all got to get on with it eh?
Shall feel a little bit better when this second jab has had time to work through my system.

Life eh? Plain

Wink Had both of mine two months ago, I won't bore you with it but I was 'at risk'. so got them in good time. Good luck, eric.

Thanks btf.
Not at risk here, just old.
I some how slipped through the net when it came to the second, didn't get called, and so it took a while.
No cause for concern.

Eric have you not thought about getting a dog? I'm biased as I've had dogs all my life and taking them for long walks is very bracing and quite therapeutic as well as an good way to keep fit.

I don't particularly like dogs, wouldn't wish a dog any harm, but they're just not for me.
Walking a dog is fine if that's what you want to do but if you're going to keep a dog properly, feeling like walking your dog, or not, it's got to be done,  too much responsibility.
Also, I hate how I can't go for walks along public country walkways that we have on my doorstep because of dog owners letting dogs run loose.

Thought about getting a push-bike but where I live, it would have to be kept indoors and I wouldn't want that. I think I could really get into bike-riding but there you go.

Slippy,as long as it's a rescued greyhound, then fine with me. Love
Report ericster June 23, 2021 8:56 PM BST
Yeah, nice thought btf.
Greyhounds do make good family dogs apparently, and they're quite territorial so you get a guard-dog as well.
Report ericster June 23, 2021 8:57 PM BST
And who'd begrudge a rescued greyhound a decent home?
Report boxingthefox June 23, 2021 9:36 PM BST
Amen to that eric. Slippy named after his fav greyhound, I'm sure he will agree with us. Happy
