    The Masked Tulip got a reaction from the gardener in COVID-1984: Compulsory Masks In Shops   
    Got chatting today with a retired boomer chap who spent ten months last year living in a village on the Bay of Bengal. Paid £5 a month for a cyclone proof concrete house out there, electricity intermittent, water was for 90 minutes in the morning for which he had a tank he had to fill. Told me that he has been going there for several years now and spending 6 months during the winter there. Said that the people are wonderful, a mix of Hindus and Christians, plus he gets to swim in the sea daily.
    He was supposed to be heading home when the wu flu struck. He said that the state he was in carried on as normal - no masks, no social distancing, although he said people were very frightened at first. There has still be no covid in that state apparently - south of Calcutta with hippy town 'Puri' as the closest town - and he said life was normal from about June of last year.
    He did say that he was very worried when he eventually got a flight back on India Airways out of Delhi. He said getting to Delhi meant that public panic about the virus rose the closer he got to the capital. He said that he was very concerned in Delhi and at the airport. A lot of fear in the air out there apparently. 
    He also told me about, as a young man, buying a VW camper in Alberta and driving it to Vancouver, down the Rockies into Central America, getting caught up in a revolution in Bolivia and ending up in Peru where he sold the van. He then flew from Peru to Miami and hitch-hiked up to NY before getting a flight home.
    In other adventures he went on a hippy bus to India. But it broke down in Austria so he hitch-hiked as far as Afghanistan and the Himalayas. This must have been the 70s or maybe 60s.

    Just look at his ex dates. If he had encountered such ladies then I doubt that Meg would have had any power over him.

    Yes, you can see her appeal to Harry after his dating one self-entitled sloane after another. Most men are vulnerable to a woman who knows how to act and what to do in bed.
    I am surprised that Charles and Grampa apparently did not arrange some serious, um, experienced ladies for Ginge when he got to the age where his willy was getting a tad firm daily. Surely it is what Uncle Louie would have arranged back in his day? That is what the upper classes do don't they?

    Royal prayers for Phil, reports.
    Phil has an infection. So lungs or heart or both. He ain't coming out of this I suspect.

    Swansea seafront and parks were heaving yesterday. Thousands on Swansea beach. Plod fining people at beach car parks. Council closed some on advice of police. Really not fair at all on those not in walking distance of a park or beach. It has become a beach for the rich thing - something I pointed out to some boomers when they complained about people not living near the beach driving to it. I said that people had sacrified jobs and business and homes to protect booms. Now boomers are complainintg that people want to go for a walk.
    Two guys out walking in a nearby park with their almost adult kids had a go at me for standing on what they perceived as the wrong side of a path. I was talking to a bunch of people standing on the other side. The guys and their kids were doing that walking in a line abreast thing taking up the entire path. We had some words. Despite them being muscle buggers I was not taking that, especially as there were so many out that, if scared, then yesterday was not the day to go out. You could not avoid being close to people. So they puffed their chest, I puffed back, the people I was talking with puffed their chests and the men wandered off mouthing stuff as they went.
    This morning I went to the Co-Op just a few hundred yards from that spot. Two men had a big row with a nurse, who was wearing scrubs, there yesterday because she did not have her mask covering her nose. Got nasty apparently. Got even nastier when she went out and got her partner. A fight or scuffle ensued. I have to wonder if it was the same two blokes.
    Staff told me that as things are opening up there are more and rows and close to fights in the shops. I can understand that because frightened people are now venturing out into a world amongst people who are trying to get life back to normal.

    If people's lives do flash before them when they are dying then Phil might be some time. He is probably up to 1953 in the Groucho club with James Roberston Justice, a box of cigars and a bevvy of Tiller Girls.

    Amazing how the royals indulged Harry and did not stop the relationship despite videos like this and all the yachting rumours.
    They seem to indulge Ginge in everything he wants - wonder why? He is so fragile? Or something else?

    She's interesting.
    Like many plain women that appear highly attractive/sexual she doesn't bear close scrutiny. She just knows how to display herself. But look closely, and she's decidedly 'meh' in the looks department.
