FOWC with Fandango: Outlandish

A door that is always closed and sealed is open. What outlandish place is this? Did someone forget to close the door? For some hundreds of years people have come and gone, but inside it all remains the same. Was it the ghouls and ghosts that forgot to close the door, but they do not need doors. They pass through them with no problem. It seems that the seasons happen behind the door, everything covered in Autumn leaves. And now I will move on, the screams and ghostly laughter are beginning and I will leave them to their own thing. They can only celebrate on one evening of the year.

FOWC with Fandango: Outlandish

Good Morning

I was expecting a little more this morning after our sunny day yesterday, but it seems that the mist has returned. Although everything is looking quite damp outside, it is not raining.

I think yesterday was a Friday where I did not go anywhere. It used to be my big shopping day for the week-end, but since life has become Covid my routine as adapted. My scooter was uploading and so I gave up and stayed at home, realising that I actually had all the food I needed at home and it could really wait another day for the few items I have to get. I compensated with a good after dinner sleep and felt refreshed for the remainder of he day.

My photography subjects are now more limited and so I make the most of what nature is supplying in various shades of Autumn in the surroundings.

My garden has a wonderful selection of greens and browns and a carpet of fallen leaves.

I was left with the TV yesterday after Mr. Swiss retired and they were again showing the second film of “Independence Day”, “The resurgence” where the extra terrestrials decided to make another effort to take over the Earth. The last time I watched an hour and then had to hug my bed. This time I decided to persevere and stayed up until midnight and watched the whole film. It might not be everyone’s taste, but I enjoyed it, especially the last scenes where the Queen of the attackers died a slow death when the Amicans finally destroyed here protective shield.

She looked a bit like this insect that I discovered in my laundry room yesterday evening when I was emptying the washing machine. I think it was two spiders engaged in a battle, or just clinging onto each other in their last moments: a meeting of the third kind, so I just had to get a photo.

Anyhow back to the film. Why is it always the Americans that save the world with their elite troop? All of them were honest men and the president was the best. He could even fly their space craft with no problem, as could his daughter and a few other heroes. They even showed that when earth has a common enemy, all group together and it becomes a place of peace with no more war. What an utopia.

And now back to reality and I will be again fighting my battle in the store today, but no big stress. It seems that our online orders for food are also now on the increase again due to people staying at home in isolation. Delivery slots are now up to a week, sometimes two weeks. I still do my shopping myself, but like to place a bigger order now and again to make sure I have reserves in the worst possible event. It is all very well when our governments give their advice about staying at home in isolation and semi lock down, but the negative side of it all is expanding. I suppose I should be happy. Mr. Swiss was in my food stock room yesterday evening (the laundry room) and was astonished to see that I still had 60 rolls of toilet paper in reserve.

So now off to the Saturday morning chores. I have other things to do than sitting at the computer. Now for the week-end so make the most of it. I am now the masked warrior and wear it all the time when in town and not just in the store – you never know. Our cases are increasing daily. Yesterday there was a closer analysis of our area on the computer and I saw that up to now 5 cases of Corona have been registered in our 950 populated village, but none in the last couple of weeks, so I suppose we can look on the bright side in between.
