My 13 yr old Choccy Lab is showing his age these days. His walks are shorter but take much longer than they used to. He drags behind at a snail’s pace and just stops when he’s had enough and wants to head home.

This weekend, we’re visiting my daughter (150 miles away) and we went for a walk to a local wood. He trotted ahead of us the whole way, setting a fairly good pace and jumped almost effortlessly, over several fallen trees, that littered the path. We walked for a little over an hour. He usually wants to head home after 15 mins!

I know that I should be overjoyed at his youthful exuberance at exploring a new location but I can’t help feeling that the sly old fox has been playing me of late?

Ian....this reminds me of something that happened a couple of weeks ago at work, I work on the trade side but asked a lady to come through because the retail side was very busy.....I have a small advertising sign laying raised a few centimetres flat on the floor....whilst serving the lady her small child started walking up and down the sign....to my amazement the lady encouraged her child saying what a nice sound it made....on leaving the store she prised him for being a clever boy....the only thing that really p%££*d me off is I didn’t say anything :datz:

As the camera scans round the crucible you can see people without masks. Just why aren't they ejected instantly. It really is disgusting.

If we are talking gamesmanship at the snooker, then if Selby knew he got an improved lie by the ref placing the white in the wrong place, that really is as unsporting as they come.

Edit. I am glad Shawn won that frame, but I think the above point might leave some tension.

Slow swimmers in the medium lane, medium swimmers in the slow lane, medium swimmers in the fast lane, fast swimmers in the medium lane.
I thought swimming was meant to be relaxing.

Dear Costco

I am exempt from wearing a face covering, I don't have to display a lanyard, but I do as a visible cue.
So you force me to wear a mask to enter your store, ok I'll do that, i have to buy one then, as you haven't offered me one or a plastic face guard, as your manager stated you should.
Not the guy at the fronts fault, he has a tough enough job, but at least give him the masks etc so he can offer them.
So I'm in, wearing my lanyard and mask, baaaaah..!
I need to know the rules as I've not been challenged before.
So I'll speak to the manager, she explains how it's there rules and how many staff members have Died from the Virus. WOW !

So I've shopped and headed home, and I need to review the rules.
I'm still confused, all the noise about Costco's policy is months old, the government website is no help, just basic outlines of the rules.
So I'll ask my daughter who works in retail, they're told not to challenge any one, not wearing a mask displaying a lanyard or not.
Still confused....

Last night my condition and reason for not wearing a mask has flared up.
Will Costco pay for my medication, I think not !
So I will now have to carry a plastic facemask, in my pocket, for next time I'm refused entry, somewhere.

P.s. Dyson sent the wrong filters for my vacuum !
