Well, I finally got out of town for what seemed like the first time in 147 years. I have been assured that it was only thirteen months since I was last away but being stir crazy does strange things to the mind.
I headed off to Michigan, where I have a LOT of family. My daughter flew in from New York to hang out for a few days. The family part of the trip was absolutely wonderful.
Traveling with all of the COVID protocols? Not so much.
This perpetual joy suck that is the pandemic is still busy trying to ruin everything. I didn’t let it but it was still quite an adjustment. Going from the free state of Arizona to one that’s being ruled by a heavy-handed petty tyrant was an experience. There are things that my relatives back there have been dealing with for a year that I had not encountered here in the Grand Canyon State.
Still, family is what’s important and I wasn’t going to let Governor Gretchen taint our time together. It was strange though, so I thought I’d share a few thoughts in that way that I like to share things.
Enjoy and, as always, thank you VIPs!
