I just booked flights to Kansas City over Labor Day. I have great hopes that both Mom and I will be on those flights. Mom just turned 89 last month. We are in the middle of a pandemic. But, I'm optimistic that on Labor Day weekend we will attend the wedding of a young cousin in a town north of Kansas City. Both of us.
It also feels good to make plans for the future. It is a bit depressing just how much of a difference it is making in the world with the majority of the people staying home. Air is cleaner. Swans are back in the canals in Venice. I have money in my account and it is almost the middle of the month.
A meme I saw said "Is everyone else getting 3 weeks to the gallon of gas like I am now?"
