Been there, done that.

It certainly gives one an insight into how those incarceincarcerated completely different version of what is acceptable to those not incarcerated.

No, I couldn’t bear that, although I do speak to a lot of people who are incarcerated, and have been frequently, and the experience certainly doesn’t seem to put them off. Traditionally a number of people in Atlantic Canada do ‘arrange’ to spend parts of the winter months in prison to avoid the worst bits of winter and be fed...bloody sad, but I’m told it’s true.

The C19 experience really has been an eye opener. I really love, adore and get on with my husband and son, but there have been a couple of times when we are all getting edgy with each other and have gone off to do things in other parts of the house so we don’t end up like a sack of spitting cats

I’ve imagined what it might be like to then be doing C19 with a volatile person with a short fuse, who you don’t love or trust and the thought is beyond me.

Unless they're posing for a photo op I don't think she lets him too close anyway.

Stepson went round to Shoppers Drug mart this morning - prescription pick up and eggs and butter. They have a limit of six people in store to shop.

There is a family of four ahead of him waiting to get in. That's a family of four, not one person per shopping visit.

Three individuals leave the store and father gets into an argument with the security person because he won't let them in yet as that would put them over the limit. Father gets into such a strop he says they'll go to the other store - it's not that far but doesn't have the wide range of stuff. They get into a car and drive off.

The dog needed to go to the vet today, and of course they are not letting people go in with their pets except in extreme situations (like putting a pet down) and they even do a COVID pet screening over the phone before coming outside to get the pet. We were asked if the dog has been lethargic, had a fever, loss of appetite or if she has been sneezing and coughing.

The vet has a pretty good method set up, arrive and call, they check you in, then call you when its your turn, you take the pet and attach the pets leash to a hook by the door, then stand back at least 6 feet, someone opens the door and takes the pet in, then the doctor calls and talks through everything on the phone, someone brings pet back out, puts the leash on the hook. Payment is either email transfer or credit card which they must receive before bringing the pet back out.

Equine vets can only come out for "emergencies" and the definition of emergency is very tight. This evening I saw a mare with a new foal, born yesterday. The mare is bleeding internally but that's not enough to count as an emergency.

Regular vets here seem to be able to do most things still, but certainly not letting people into the office for majority of services, only the pet is allowed in.

my daughter has had to take her dog to,the emergency animal hospital a few times in the last few weeks due to heart failure. They have more or less the same procedures in place.
