Subject: RE: BS: Check in Mudcatters world wide
All good here in my little (pop. 25k) town on the edge of The Lincolnshire Backwoods. My Border Terrier and I get our designated ‘one exercise-period per day’ by means of a 90-120 minute walk (3 to 4 miles), mostly along a section of our river-bank where it’s unusual to see any other human being. Our local Tesco has an ‘OAPs-only’ hour on three days per week, and numbers of people permitted in the store at one time are very strictly limited, trolley-handles are wiped after use by a store employee but I wear disposable nitrile gloves anyway, so I’m not too concerned.

Mrs. Backwoodsperson is an ‘Essential Worker’, but she’s able to work at home most of the time, only having to go to the office, where there’s only one other employee in attendance and in a different office, for an hour or so per day, so we’re pretty comfortable with that.

There are, of course, distinct benefits to sticking close to home - the house is unusually clean and tidy, my guitars are getting considerably more playing-time than normal, and I’m trying my hand at songwriting again - unfortunately with not a great deal of success so far!

Stay safe, stay well everybody!
