Corona queue

My first time through the front door for four days was to go to our local farmer's market for a week's supply of vegetables and eggs. The queue is never normally this long, nor does it usually have more than three people in it - lots of people must have realised that shopping outdoors from local farmers beats supermarket queues. My place in the queue, being held for me, was well out of shot to the right. The physical* distancing was only a metre, rather than the recommended two, but I hope everyone went home safe.

*I am refusing to call it 'social' distancing - the outpouring of social contact and support groups I've seen on social media over the last few days has been extraordinary and heartwarming. So many people offering to help others. Most humans are great, given half a chance.
