HELP! . what do I do?.
The last couple of days I find myself on the "horns of a dilemma".
As people know (well at least the Brits on this forum) we have had a severe outbreak of F & T . in Northumberland and I am right slap bang in the middle of it .
There is loads of speel coming out from defra about dont make any journeys in the area unless absolutley neccesary
They have set up a "blue box zone " whereby everything that moves in or out of the area recieves a thorough spraying from disinfectant
My problem! do I want to cycle up to one of these road blocks and be given a spray by this glutinous disinfectant
I dread to think of the effect this will have on my beloved cycle . But I already feel the effects of my need for my usual cycle ride routine .
Do i run the gauntlet of this viscious spray or try to hold out until this crisis is over ( it may be weeks)
Or maybe I could could use my wiles and sneek out using some unknown exits.
I fear going out at the present time . I think there are these people from defra lurking in the bushes ready to pounce out on me with there deadly sprays and they are a fearsome sight , carbed in their suits that look like Neil Armstrong when he stepped onto the Moon .
ANY advicce would be gratefully accepted!
go with god.
