Beer, Fags and Food

I had run over Hartside for vital supplies for myself and neighbours yesterday not a car or commercial to be seen on a road normally busy with European motor homes at this time of year. Surprising amount of plonk requested aren't the online wine merchants still hard at work? Not a smoker so when an old girl down the lane asked for 200 B&H and gave me  £120 I was astounded, it's interesting shopping for neighbours!

The sheer cost of smoking!  The dreadful smell left on everything, hair, clothes, soft-furnishings.  Plus the additional cost of dry-cleaning.    Smokin  

I'm so glad I never have.

You are a knight of the road Manstein! Coming out of isolation to supply booze and fags for the neighbours. Hope that you avoided all those "imperial" old people who can't gauge 2 metres at your local supplies emporium. Still, open road to blow the coronavirus and the smoke away. Great to be an old boy in the North.

Roger my "imperial" neighbours don't have any problems with decimal coinage and have the mansions to prove it! The social "safety net" has always been in place round here not a post virus innovation, with a total lack of public transport there's always been a car sharing tradition.

Less of the "old boy" if you don't mind but I'll accept insufferable! It's not my fault if your forced to live in Yorkshire.

Hello Julian I've just seen L7CIt have not surprisingly cancelled this years event. I hadn't planned to go as I was booked for the Swedish meet but that's probably in doubt. All well at this end I dont think we are under the same pressure here due to low population density and in my case large open spaces on the doorstep.

Glad to hear your well, we are lucky to be on the end of the cotswolds , glad not to be in a town or city but a small village, we fell isolated from the real problems. Take care
