I meant it in the nicest possible way, that it was all male, e.g. male dominated, nothing more, as you so rightly say, it was a men's barbers, just words.
It,s. O K.   I was on my high horse at the time.   Sam

Ah sure, it's easily done, I pay no heed.....and he was gracious enough to explain that he was on his high horse at the time, I just loved the expression - hadn't heard it in ages, no much call for it over here in California. ...

My father was born in 1911 and he never forgot the Spanish flu pandemic - I can remember him talking about it and now I know why it left such an indelible memory on his mind.  This is awful and of course parts of America are so much worse.  We have a lot of idiots who are not observing the most basic of requirements.

  We are slowing opening up here and in some places maybe not so slowly.  I want to go home in October, (I had booked my flight for March) but I don't even know if that is going to be possible as the EU really is right in not wanting US people coming over and upsetting the applecart for them.

In the meantime I will keep a positive approach and hope to be home as soon as possible.

regards, cathy

I was talking to my friend also from Northern Ireland but living in Dublin  Moira Ahern, yes you can make the connection while I name drop, married to his brother. .and Moira was telling me the news on the government, it will be interesting to say the least.  I married a falla from Dublin who think they are the bees knees but its been 52 years now, so we will see if it works out. .but I do go back to Dublin well just outside Dublin and I miss it as I have family there.

We must live up the road from each other when I am in Ireland.  I live in Malahide and one of my daughters lives in Ratoath. .so its a small world.  My husband would give anything for a hair cut just now and I am sure your boys would be only too happy to be back at work.  It looks like we are banned from travel to Europe due to the pandemic and to the idiot in charge. .I too am well retired
