Being able to go to a restaurant or a movie without the fear of catching COVID.

That would probably be high on my wife's list. She enjoys going out to lunch/dinner. She/we have started to go out a little bit, but only to places with outdoor seating.

To have my wife at home fit and well and not in a care home with multiple sclerosis where she can't walk or care for herself. I am allowed to see her once a month (distanced of course)
I see these thugs on TV killing, they are fit and well. Why must my wife who has never hurt a fly suffer, and these thugs don't.

Oh, my friend Col, I understand. I sometimes still ask why my mother had to endure the mental and physical degradation that comes with advanced Alzheimer's Disease when there were so many useless people running around doing bad things while she was dying? I remember those feelings and I truly understand. I have no words for you except to say, "I know your pain."

Sorry Jon, I didn't mean to steal your thread, I was a bit down last night.
Anyway, I'll post again.
I really fancy a nice holiday maybe in Spain as I speak Spanish, where there is no airport hassle and no virus and not too hot so I can see some friends again and enjoy the famous Spanish hospitality. Just for a week or two would be fab.

That's fine Colin. This site is a bit like a family in a way. Many of you have known one another for over a decade, so people share all sorts of stuff. It can be cathartic to share with people you kinda know. Besides, I've always been 100% flexible over whether threads stay on topic or not. Go where the conversation flows.

Wow, didn't know you spoke Spanish. I am rubbish at languages. You would probably catch Covid though.

...a fresh shortbread biscuit to go with my cappuccino, unlike the one I just ditched because the pack was left open for a week.

I learnt Spanish many years ago because a) it's a logical language - you pronounce all the letters in a word, and you always say each letter the same whatever the word, and b) we had a few years of Spanish students staying with us so it was useful, and c) the Spanish people are pleased when an English person converses with them in Spanish. Obviously, its real Castilian Spanish, not the strange South American dialect.

I learnt a few words. I got tapes I used to play in my car and also a book, where you stuck labels to things in your house. Was fun! La cocina was stuck to my kitchen door!

One revelation was that any English word ending in 'tion' is exactly the same in Spanish but ends in 'cion' eg, 'emotion' and 'emocion', so straightaway you now know about a hundred words in Spanish.
