Now Wash Your Hands

This Corona thing is beginning to feel like jazz music. It goes on, and on, and on, and on.

Daily we check the News, fake or otherwise to see what’s going on, where and when. We read endlessly. Each day we do another boat job, tackling one of the “To-Do’s” from either the Critical / Important / Nice to Do list or, the Things We’ll Say, “We should have done this during lockdown list”. Yesterday that included swimming about in the marina wiping down the antifoul, keeping the barnacles at bay. Swimming about in the marina soup that it’s better you don’t think what’s in it. We’ve also never been so informed. The nice people at the telecoms place give us a free GB every day so we can surf ourselves stupid online. Nor have we been so fit, leaping around in a lather at Ian’s morning exercise class ( https://www.facebook.com/BaseFitnessPersonalTraining/ ).

So, coming out of this, as we surely will, the boat will be shinier. We’ll be slimmer and fighting fit. We’ll be smarter and well read. Our hands will be soft from near continuous hand washing although, the notices and online demos are becoming like the airline seatbelt demo. Seen one, seen ‘em all. Like the new Corona cases curve, people’s interest flattens out, then declines then nobody pays any attention.

A bit like me telling Anne to trim the genoa “just a couple of inches”.
