Change of pace?

Not only slow but stopped

I found this snail shell on the house wall. When I picked it off, I couldn’t see any trace of the inhabitant – only the thin layer of dried mucous which had held it stuck a few feet off the ground.

So, a step backwards on the velocity scale – you can’t get much slower than a dead snail.

Let it not be said that this reminds me of the Italian health system, particularly as today we may have had the first bit of good news since our return to Italy.

I’m not enlarging on it right now for fear of jinxing it …
