    My mini-college reunion in June was cancelled.
    My daughter's wedding was downsized dramatically. To be honest, neither she nor I am disappointed. Saves us a ton of money and a ton of work, and under the circumstances our families can't complain that they weren't invited.

    I have a high school reunion in September.. I'm fairly optimistic that it will occur, but probably few travelers from out of state will come.

    Other than that, yes, first world "problems"--I'm happy just hanging out here. I had no travel plans, and my work travel has shut down completely and I'm far from upset about that.

    I am most peeved by the unfortunate consequences of the pandemic on local businesses. Our lakeside island wedding venue is closing its doors after 22 years. All their weddings were cancelled. My son still hasn't heard from his boss, who bought the restaurant 4 weeks before everything shut down. Talk about bad timing! I fear this is just the beginning.

    One of our reasons for simple living is that it has afforded us the ability to indulge in our love of travel. We had a three week trip planned in September to the east coast starting in Cape Cod for a week and then up to the Canadian Maritimes. Started my cancelations a couple of days ago. Very glad I always get travel insurance even though you have to jump through a few hoops to file a claim. A few of the hotels were supposedly non-refundable but I've been able to get refunds in the past and have fingers crossed for now. Got my air fare refunded today even though initially they wanted to give a voucher.
    Was reading that RV rentals have gone up 650%. It was already a bit crowded out there so I can't imagine what it will be like. Sales have spiked as well. In the past few weeks we have had people drive by and approach us in the yard asking to buy our Minnie Winnie. We wouldn't even try to take it out until next fall when all has settled down.

    If Biden is smart? Good grief, Rob, look at what you just wrote. Smart is not how I would describe him these days.

    oh come now, Joe Biden as the presumptive heir to the throne has all kinds of advisors surrounding him who will steer him correctly on this decision. I mean that sincerely.

    Choice of vice presidential candidate is not one he has to make out there in front of a microphone speaking on his own without obvious handlers propping him up.

    That is what I cling to, Iris Lilies, that he is deciding nothing by himself, and he has a good ear piece.

    Yes! Unlike 45, he will talk with and listen to his advisors. He will read speeches and not go off on a tangent. I'm hopeful!!!!!

    Donít worry about Klobuchar. I heard that when he sniffed her hair it smelled like salad dressing.

    For those of us who are older we don’t know how many good years we have left to travel and that both will remain healthy.

    Well, I am figuring that I just need to start my United States land travel earlier than I had anticipated. I still wanted at least one more trip to Europe and possibly an Asian trip although I’m beginning to doubt that latter one more and more.
