Our closed state borders

Another fine performance by Sammy J. This works better if you know about the Sydney and Melbourne rivalry, which according to Sydneysiders does not exist. They can afford to be smug at the moment with virtually no COVID in New South Wales. It's not mentioned but notice Sammy is dressed in Melbourne black.

  5. Thanks for starting my day with a good chuckle!
    Massachusetts and New Hampshire have a similar rivalry. They currently have bad Covid numbers and ours are going down!

  6. There is a bridge across the Potomac River, just north of where we live that connects Virginia and Maryland. After a long debate when it was built, it was built as a drawbridge - not a high rise bridge. There is little big boat traffic on the river, it only opens a couple of times a year. The local joke, was Virginia insisted on a draw bridge so they could stop the invasion by Maryland drivers.
