Fair enough.  Might just be then. I find airports to be places of misery at the best of times. 

I completely agree with that sentiment.
Unfortunately have to travel transatlantic to visit family. Fingers crossed I won't need to do that until maybe some of the restrictions/changes/etc go back to (mostly) normal.

In terms of what I am not doing for a long time: flying somewhere. Apart from being locked in a plane with hundreds of other people, I don't think I can handle having mask on for 4-6-10 hours. Plus the airplane air makes me sneeze profusely every time I fly. So I'd be considered bio terrorist half through the flight.  ::)  :'(

Jurgis is not The Terminator and actually has weaknesses.  Quick, put him in that vat of molten metal.  Actually, I mean put him on a plane.

I'll be back*  8)

Was just kidding around. I wouldn't do either of those things....anymore. I'm a married guy with 2.5 kids, no longer in college, for better or for worse.

Off topic & especially for Greg:

Is it time to post a huge congratulations to you? [ ; - D]

Haha. I continue to be impressed by you, John.

But to answer your question, not yet. September/October the "third wave" arrives.

The economy is sort of open already here in MA and in Southern NH.

Our son meets with friends outside every once in a while. I think we are going to do some local trips here in summer.
, perhaps to the Berkshire’s or to Vermont (assuming they will have us). My wife currently can’t get vacation, but I think she ought to be able to get some this summer before the second wave comes in.

Lots of restaurants here have converted to outdoor seating, which I actually think it is a great idea and I hope it stays even when this thing is over, of course this is weather permitting. Somehow we should try to make lemonade out of lemons.
