I feel sad!

Went for a short walk - well, a mile anyway - to the local Spar as I had run out of potatoes and Sainsbury's aren't due until Friday. Was watching people in the streets there and back.

People who would normally stop and chat or, at least, say 'Hello' were leaping into doorways and onto drives to avoid each other.

While I appreciate the reasons and know we all have a duty to keep ourselves and others safe from the plague - it just made me feel very sad!

I think everyone is just scared and extra cautious but surely a quick hello canít hurt!

I don't know if this is a good or bad thing, but -apart from in enclosed spaces where people have to wear masks- in my part of the world, you could be forgiven for forgetting about the virus situation. People don't seem to be behaving any differently to normal. The epidemic isn't even a particularly prevalent topic of conversation.

I know! Same in California. We stand 6' apart and shriek at one another through our masks. Mostly we shriek about how we're really tired of the whole thing.

I feel the same Tabby, like lemmings, people would rather throw themselves into the path of the traffic rather than pass me too closely....I thought they were joking at first....

I'm surprised to hear you say that, Foxy, considering you live in the same neck of the woods as me. Are you sure they're not avoiding you for some other reason?

Do you think it might help if I put some clothes on Harbal?...

It might make people less wary of you, Foxy.
