As unusual as the Coronavirus has made this year of 2020 it should come as no surprise that my one-week vacation last week was different than many others in recent years. There was no extended trip to any of the destinations on our bucket list because right now it’s just too much of a pain to travel much of anywhere. It was nice to rediscover during my week off that birds start singing just before dawn and that my alarm clock could wait until 7:00 a.m. to go off. There was a one-day trip to the Rock ‘n roll hall of fame in Cleveland, And another 1-day visit with the grand kids to the fort Wayne Childrens’ zoo, but other than that just it me to relax. During my time away there was some improvement noted in the impact that Covid19 is having on our area and that’s positive. During my last day prior to vacation Congress was engaged in heated debate oon how best to support Americans who’ve been negatively impacted by the Corona virus, And they’re still haggling over that on my first day back today. The more things change, the more they stay the same. That’s the way I see it.
