Maybe she thinks it's some kind of soup kitchen and it's just the free dinners that tempt her back. Are you a good cook?

Adequate. She's made it clear she wants to be with me.....assuming the guy who was at a gathering a week ago and tested positive hasn't passed it on to her and then me!

My approach to social distancing is simple, don't meet people unless it's necessary, reasonable and justifiable after considering the alternatives. But it's my decision, not BJ's. :D
Agreed except I would certainly remove the "reasonable" and maybe the "justifiable" as well. If it's "necessary" then it will be "reasonable" and "justifiable" ... they are just opportunities to use as loopholes. The problem is we are a nation of rule benders. If we can find a way around a rule we will use it.

In yesterday's Downing Street Briefing the Top Plod (not intended to be derogatory, can't remember his name) recited a few cases of incredulous behaviour including someone on social media advertising a 'rave' (look at me, I'm going to break the law ... why not join me and do it to drugs and music!) and a mini-bus with I think 30+ morons on board from different households driving from Bristol to South Wales to go for a walk! With people like that there is no hope for our species!

Has anyone had a relationship with somebody who spends 90% of their time talking on the phone and the remainder texting? Is it even possible?

I ask this as I"m sitting at the dinner table with her. :roll:
Why not send her a text over dinner and start a text convo?

My neighbour's daughter once sent her father a text asking him to make her a cup of tea and bring it to her in her bedroom!! Now that girl has style (and she's a bit of a looker ;) ). :lol:

I wasn't suggesting they should be the rules, they're just my own approach. It's pointless bending the rules if you only have to answer to yourself. :)

Good idea, I might do that next time: "I'm just off to the toilet" or " would you like another beer?" :lol:

Surely it cant be that difficult to catch it and repatriate it back to the States?

I'm sure somebody would be willing to set up a gofundme page to cover the costs

Their reaction is totally over the top in my opinion. But it's just a pigeon so I guess it's fate is doomed as there are far more important things to worry about in the world.

Do they track everything that flies into the country ? I bet loads does and goes unknown about.
