Lockdown – chooks and books

But wait. There’s more. No I’m not going to offer a set of ginsu knives (whatever they are). I’ve got 2 categories of cartoons that I want to share as a grand finale: chooks and books.                

Lockdown, Level 1, (Day 80)

Wednesday, June 10, 2020 (ZERO active cases, 22 deaths – unchanged for 19 days) I feel like I should have the strains of Frank Sinatra in the background singing “My Way” And now, the end is near And so I face the final curtain My friends, I’ll say it clear I’ll state my case of…

Lockdown – Covid Cartoons

Over the last 10+ weeks I’ve posted a number of Covid related cartoons and images. Following is a recap to end this blog.  

Lockdown, Level 1, (Day 79)

Tuesday, June 9, 2020 (ZERO active cases, 22 deaths – unchanged for 18 days) I’ve actually given up trying to go for a walk on a Tuesday morning. The obstacle course that the street becomes once the bins are chucked all over the place is just not worth it. I still can’t believe how driven…

Lockdown, Level 2, (Day 78)

Monday, June 8, 2020 (ZERO active cases, 22 deaths – unchanged for 17 days) Finally, the woman who was the last remaining active Covid-19 case has been declared free of the virus. This is significant. It means that, for the time being, we are in the clear. No one is suggesting that we won’t get…

Lockdown, Level 2, (Day 77)

Sunday, June 7, 2020 (1 active case, 22 deaths – unchanged for 16 days) It was truly wonderful to wake to the sound of birds chirping and see the glint of sun peaking through the curtains this morning. With the temperature at -1, I could see there was a frost on the cars in the…

Lockdown, Level 2, (Day 76)

Saturday, June 6, 2020 (1 active case, 22 deaths – unchanged for 15 days) Foolishly, I decided to do chores first. To be fair, it wasn’t till about 10.30 when I left the house. First stop was CarpetCourt to drop off the samples. John greeted me without enthusiasm – I felt that he had actually…

Lockdown, Level 2, (Day 75)

Friday, June 5, 2020 (1 active case, 22 deaths – unchanged for 14 days) So where are we all going for a holiday when our borders open and there isn’t a 14 day quarantine on return? There was an article during the week on Stuff that suggested the following countries as a possible destination. Australia…

Lockdown, Level 2, (Day 74)

Thursday, June 4, 2020 (1 active case, 22 deaths – unchanged for 13 days) A wet, miserable day today, and it’s only deteriorated as the day progressed and the temperature dropped. The forecast suggests snow to 600m in the Port Hills and the Canterbury foothills. The skiers will be quite pleased with Level 1 on…

Lockdown, Level 2, (Day 73)

Wednesday, June 3, 2020 (1 active case, 22 deaths) Early this year, a very trendy (well at least in the owners’ minds) gym – all concrete and steel – opened up in the building that shares a wall with MapWorld. All last year, staff and customers of MapWorld had to endure the sometimes overwhelming noise…
