Streetwise

First lockdown day and the streets were empty! Everybody was supposed to be in their own home and to stay there. We drove out to get prescriptions and had to obey instructions which were really very easy.
Thankful for:
We are used to being together and having hardly any visitors. But had lots of phone calls and Facetime with one son in Canada together with the other son in Japan.
Isn't technology a wonderful thing in these times? Glad your system for getting prescriptions was so straightforward.

Technology makes all the difference in the world.
Great to keep in touch.

I thought there would be queues - but none anywhere I could see! @casablanca

@sarah19 Particularly when face to face is forbidden! I feel sorry for the oldies who have no computer skills, let alone a computer!

A strange sight indeed.

@dide Reminds me of that Neville Shute story ...On the Beach!

@maggiemae yes indeed. Now that's a book I haven't seen for a long time. I'm not sure I even read it to the end!!

Matt sorted something for us,where we can all get on line together and chat.

Was so strange not hearing the traffic noise. Stay safe.

Beautiful street shot and yet so bare. Crowds somewhat scare you but so deserted also.

So bare....it's strange isn't it. We had to get prescriptions today too & hardly a soul....Hand sanitizer is impossible to buy now!

Like a ghost town. At least we have Skype, phones and face time these days. So few people are totally alone.

We are in day 10 of self isolation. We too have heard from many folks, which has been so nice.
March 26th, 2020  
We too are thankful for technology: getting to skype with my daughter and extended family Australia and New Zealand and even family in the UK -

Such a blessing to be able to have virtual contact with family and friends all over the world. Our lockdown starts at midnight, stay safe
March 26th, 2020  
That must be an strange feeling

I do my daily walks alone. Many people are walking, running, bicycling but keeping the social distancing in practice.

Empty streets everywhere; a strange sight.
We are used to being together too, but really thankful for Whatsapp and Facebook.

A friend is taking my prescription in to the pharmacy in the morning. I have a repeat prescription which I normally just take in _ pop into the box, failing that I can ring up. Not at the moment though...they are not answering the pharmacy phone & I don’t like to ring the surgery so my cinema friend is taking her morning walk & picking it up. We can go online but haven’t fathomed out the info they need yet....suppose to collect info at surgery. Thank goodness for friends.
Such a quiet street.....same here nothing in the village I have been told!

@happypat The pharmacy should be answering the phone. Then someone can just pop in and pick it up. I expect you are amusingly enjoying being here at home! We are!
March 26th, 2020  
It’s like this everywhere. So strange!

@brennieb Its good to have a "Matt' in ones's lives!
March 26th, 2020  
Wow...so eerily fascinating to see!
