Sit and Shit

Dog confuses Sit and Shit from masked voice  :-)

(During COVID-19 pandemic, wearing of a mask is either recommended or compulsory in many countries.)

Sit !!   ...   Damn mask.


Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), also known as 2019-nCoV acute respiratory disease (2019-nCoV ARD), is a viral respiratory disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It is the disease implicated in the 2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic.

The disease was first identified in the city of Wuhan, capital of Hubei province in China, among patients who had developed pneumonia of no clear cause. Amid rapid spread of the disease, the World Health Organization has since declared the outbreak to be a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). Infections have been reported throughout the world, mostly of travelers originating from Mainland China, with local transmission also reported in many countries.

Non-COVID-19 version:

I said sit !  You idiot !

Lost cities in Australia - 2

All photographs here are by Rob Herbert in 2020 July 4, in a hiking trip to Mt Towinhingy in Wollemi National Park, NSW, Australia.

The pagoda-like rock formations around the mountain are like lost cities of an old decaying civilisation swallowed by the wilderness.

1)  The large mountain is Mt Towinhingy.
- The pagodas around its base are like lost cities  :-)
