Me.Bee

Being a Italian Catholic I love Christmas.
Starts with the lights going up then the tree the family coming in town Christmas Eve dinner the whole build up for the little fat guy.
Having little kids there is a Disney cartoon with Donald’s nephews, they wish every day was Christmas. Needless to say in the magic world of Disney they got there wish and every day was Christmas it took a week of this until they were bored with Christmas.

Personally I love any holiday when the stores shut down and society can stop and smell the roses.

This extended holiday is becoming a bit like the Disney cartoon..

Humans are creatures of habits and when those routines are messed with for whatever reasons it affects each individual differently. Half glass full people look at it one way and the half empty people look at it a different way and no one likes to pass time waiting on the big bad wolf..

Somehow we all wound up here in the land of uncertainty all with a common enemy for a change. I have no doubt this holiday will end as well hopefully sooner than later and we all come out on the other side with a new appreciation of life and towards our fellow people. Hopefully we all learn some lessons in life and we all take personal holidays after this and stop and smell the roses.

Speaking of Roses the ones I like bloom on the first Saturday of May and due to these circumstances. Rumor has it they are blooming in September this year I hope they are right.
Yes nothing in life stays the same and the good ol days are called that for a reason because we are creatures of habit.

I was told, John the more you try to bring yesterday’s memories into today’s world the more frustrated you will become as that turns into today’s luggage.Made sense to me..

I have no doubt we will come out of this, I just hope when we start rebuilding we recognize what we are building as I sure don’t want to be bringing that much luggage with me I like to travel light..

No apologies needed take care and gotta say the races really helped me get my mind of things..I’m sure it did for P-Dub😎
God Bless us all.
John
