What is behind door number 2? I don’t know and either does any of us. I hope this grand reopening experiment works. I hope we don’t get too complacent and careless. I wish we had better testing and tracing just to limit future spread that could be prevented.

What’s behind the door.

So I’m going to try to do my best to be safe and reintegrate a bit. But not really much at all. For there is an advanced senior here and two new members to the group. So no movies at the theater, no sporting events, no marching even though they have my full support. No casino’s and probably no concerts.

Probably no dine in for a while longer. Still no desire to get a haircut, I’m starting to like the length. I might not see an airport for another year or more. And I won’t be substituting amusement rides in place of the plane rides.

I’ll hit the beach so early in the morning it won’t be crowded. And then again late in the day. I’ll probably avoid the pool and spend a lot of time on the deck. I’ll take the outdoor stairs instead of elevators. And we will probably cook some of our own meals instead of going out so much.

I’ll continue to work from home. I’ll go to the store in off-hours. I’ll wear my mask, but I have trouble remembering not to touch my face.

I’ll cut down my contacts to minimal again for a while to see what is behind that door.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I’m trying to turn over a positive leaf. Trouble is they are all still in the trees.
  • I had a beach body but I lost it during this virus lockdown. I just happened to be near the fridge when they said, shelter in place.
  • I have a friend who loves summer because his tires hook up so much better when it’s warm out.
  • I use electronic calendars, but I have ones hanging on my wall that I have to turn each month. That is a far better reminder of how fast time passes.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
