Nashing down-under during "COVID-19"
22nd Apr 2020
Surgery down-under has been limited because of a shortage of PPE.
'Nashing has been limited too.
The two were put together the other day when PF2567 was taken into Epworth Hospital in Melbourne.
The hospital security chaps asked whether it was my beret inadvertently left lying atop the radiator (see photograph): "In this era of COVID-19 no-one dares touch it!"
Beret still had a taint of warmth when retrieved to drive home at the end of the theatre list.
Yours in dogs, sprockets and grease,
P.S. One of life's peculiar twists: PF2567 is an ex-Patricia McOstrich car (mid-1930s) which she replaced with AUL41 in the late 1930s. Both cars, which probably shared a garage in Buckingham Palace Road just before WWII, are now owned by doctors on opposite sides of the globe and who spend much of their professional time gowned in orthopaedic theatre attire. Both cars are in not-dissimilar cosmetic condition too.
