Lunedi Lunacy

Well the week has started off with some good news on the COVID-19 front – though I’m thinking we really don’t need the 19 do we? It’s been over a year and we’re on first name basis now – here on the Island. The vaccination programme has reached 3.5% of the population with Long Term Care Facilities and essential hospital workers completed and the next phase opening today.

So why the report on Long Term Care – well one of our friends at Foil Arms and Hog has been called into the office at the centre where his Gran is a “guest”.

Though looking at this body today it’s difficult to believe that I use to go to a gym three times a week. It was a pretty spiffy place but the owner was a bit of a jerk. One day when I was struggling with some apparatus he was showing a perspective client around. He decided to “encourage” me by shouting: Feel the burn! Feel the burn!” I stopped, puzzled and looked around; “What’s on fire” I ingenuously yelled back. He never bothered me again.

  1. Love Foil Arms and Hog. No word of the day today? I do read to the end of the post and the word of the day.

  2. Has that long term care home been open for less than a week? Since when would that have been its first disciplinary hearing? With the way seniors these days behave it is a wonder there aren’t multiple hearings each day. Back in my day they raised seniors to be respectful. Now they just run wild.

  3. These guys are great. I was a personal trainer at one time. The worst thing I ever said was during an aqua aerobics class. The pool was filled with women ranging in age from 65 to 86. They loved to talk… and talk… and talk. I finally shouted over the music and their voices, “Excuse me for interrupting, but if you can talk that much without losing your breath, you’re obviously not working hard enough.” They all burst out laughing and were quiet … for about 15 seconds.
