Times are changing!

To quote from Tolkein’s “Lord of the Rings” –
“I wish it need not have happened in my time.”‘ said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

A rather philosophical quote given our current times … and then there is the plea for help from a house just around the corner to us!
To quote a Bob Dylan song “The Times They Are A Changing”, and to add a Bachman-Turner Overdrive (BTO) song “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” ! Keep smiling! šŸ™‚

    • As “months” is a possibility, we could use the time to hone our skills at fighting depression perhaps? Look on the bright side … if we can think about fighting depression, we are at least alive! If we can still smile … if we can still Blog … if we can still enjoy our animal friends … if we ….. (the list is endless) ! šŸ™‚

      • I don’t see how any society can survive for months in a lock down. If we do that, it will turn out that all those people who hoarded toilet paper had the right idea, because the supply chain will be well and truly broken, for all essentials, including food and medicine. So I’m sticking to weeks in my mind!

        • Well I don’t know where you live Ann but, around here, supplies are slowly recovering from the irresponsible buying. If this pandemic goes on for months, then those that hoarded won’t need to shop again for a while. Like you, I am also hoping that a few weeks will see the end but, unlike you, I am interpreting the daily WHO reports such that months is the more likely timing and for that, I am now mentally prepared. I figure that if my parents and grandparents can live through the mass killings and bombings of two world wars, I should be able to manage a few months of hardship. It’s all perspective really isn’t it.


          • Oh, I get that and totally agree, we can and have endured hardships before. I’m just talking about the fact that if we stay in lock-down for months, the businesses that produce our supplies will go bankrupt and stop producing them, and then the shortages will be very, very real. And even more people will die. So that’s why I’m hoping that when the WHO says this will be months, they mean globally, and not that it will take months before people can leave their houses. Because that will kill even more people than the virus. Still, no one knows what is coming, and all we can do is hope for the best and be as tolerant and patient as we can. Stay safe, Colin!

    I am learning to teach on line; it is very hard, but I guess a 5 hr. tutorial on line CAN teach on old dog/professor new tricks. LOL
