      I was at the eye doctor and multiple people had their masks down below their noses. How is that helpful?????

        That reminds me of the time I opened our bulkhead doors (from the inside) only to discover a big old snake. My mom was there at the time, and she said it was the fastest she'd ever seen me move. I didn't scream, though. I just bolted.

        One of the dogs we once had hated snakes with a passion. If he found one in the yard he would pick it up with his mouth and fling it across the yard.

          Fairly tempted to tell such people that if they can't wear it the right way, they shouldn't bother covering only their mouths either.

          I'm not that easily spooked. Mind you, we don't have a wide variety of snakes in Belgium. We have 2 species, I think, and neither are poisonous. Of course, that's not counting the escaped Boa's and Ball Pythons but they don't fair well since they can't handly the cold so they rarely if ever survive for very long out in the open.

          I've never seen a snake in the wild in all my... wait, I did once... in France, crossing in front of our kayak. I thought it was cool

          My sister, however, got spooked by a lizard once and smashed the door shut on the poor animal. This happened in the Azores. She immediately realized what she'd done though and as we opened the door again, the poor thing was cowering in a small alcove just below the frame of the door. It skedaddled once it realized it was in no further danger but it chose to run inside, not the other way so my sister ended up dancing on top of the couch with me laughing my head off.

          We never saw any trace of that small creature again the rest of our stay so we have no idea where it ended up in the end.

            That's the idea.

              Just found out Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac has died. She was 79. Fleetwood Mac is my favorite band. I saw them once in concert. They were beyond awesome.


              Oh, and FH, I wasn't paying attention and scheduled to have my car serviced while the Belgium/Croatia game will be playing. Dangit! Maybe I can convince them to turn the game on in the waiting area..... Anyway, best of luck!

              Right??? The worst part was that I saw 2 of the staff doing this as well. I couldn't wait to get out of there. I have been lucky so far that my hermit lifestyle has allowed me to avoid covid, and I'd like to keep it that way, thank you very much.

              This was a non-poisonous common garter snake. Still freaked me out when it stuck its tongue out at me!

                JT2 It was sad to see the news on Christine. Their songs were such a part of my youth.

                I had an appointment at the orthopedic clinic and I was the only one wearing a mask. Almost everyone here has stopped wearing them. and everyone wonders why they have the flu.

                as for the bears, I’ve been lucky will probably get eaten one day because I have a habit of crossing paths just when I’m about to finish a trail when I’m in no mood to deal or backtrack and add miles to an already long hike. I used to wonder what I’d do when it was my turn to encounter a bear and I was more surprised than anyone that my instinct is to tell the bear off. My heart rate is always racing though when we all go out separate ways.

                  That was definitely sad news.

                  Sheesh, does no one get their annual flu shots anymore?

                    At my eye doctor there were a ton of signs saying that masks were still required. It didn't stop 2 people from coming in without them. And the staff didn't do anything. Of course, this is also the staff that had the masks below their noses...

                    Oh, and while I was at the mechanics earlier today there was a woman with a deep cough. I was like... where's my mask? Where's YOUR mask? GERMS GET AWAY FROM ME!!!

                    Yes, it most certainly was. Christine wrote so many of their big hits.

                      Devils are done. We're back in the "Wait, Belgium is at the WC/EC?!? For real!".

                      They play like a bunch of old wives (no offence to any old wives), except today. Now, if they had played like that during the last two games, we might actually have made it.

                      The Moroccons on the other hand... by the gods, their fans are the least fairplay that I have seen in group F. Booing and whistling when the other team has the ball -- shameful behavior if ever there is one. Felt good to learn that the Canadians were granted a Moroccon owngoal.


                      Mind you, Croatia has to play against Japan who just creamed Spain so good luck on that.

                        Well, at least you guys got a win and some points.

                        Still, I guess this is technically the best Canadian Performance at a Men's World Cup ever.

                        I watched the Highlights of the Morocco-Canada game, and Morocco's first goal was 100% the fault of the goalkeeper.

                        Canada's goal didn't really feel like an own goal, since it looked like the Canadian player was shooting. Is any deflection really enough to make something an own goal?

                          I saw a story about Japanese fans cleaning up the stadium after their win. Talk about a difference in the quality of the fans.

                            Trust me when I say that I felt sorry for Canada cause they were the better team against our old wives club. They just couldn't get the ball in the nets otherwise the score would have been 20 to zero in favor of the Canadians.

                            I heard that women's football in Canada is more popular than the men's division.
                            Over here, the reverse is true though our Red Flames are, dare I say, better playing at the moment than our Devils.

                            Yes, if the ball hits any other player but the goalie on its way to the nets, it's considered an owngoal. The Moroccan tried for deflection but his action kicked the ball in the nets, which might not have happened if he had let it pass.

                            I couldn't help but cheer when I saw the highlight of it. Hate to say it but the Moroccan "fans" are an absolute disgrace in the stadium. If football is supposed to be a party, then they were certainly not getting that message.

                              As did the players in the dressing rooms. They always do that. They are such an awesome bunch.

                                Between that and cleaning the stadium, I think Japan is schooling everyone in How To World Cup this time out.
