May has been an exciting month and will be more so on the last day when we open back up after such a long, long time.
We will be opened only during the hours of 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to start. I will reiterate that vaccines are required if you plan on dining on the premises. Masks are required while you pick up your meal. They are not required while dining on the premises. We are not planning to be the mask and/or vaccine police so please help us out by being compatible. We strongly desire that all of the seniors and visitors are kept safe and free from COVID-19. We wish to remain open.
Hopefully all are now able to plan a trip to visit family, friends, or a favorite spot. Tessie was able to take her first ever cruise. I was, also, able to take a cruise. It was wonderful to be out and about at long last. Getting ready to take a cruise is loaded with “have to dos”: vaccine, boosters, wellness check within anywhere from 24 to 48 hours before the trip.
Made it to the ship in time and away we went. All went so so. I didn’t experience extreme weather conditions as I have in the past—rain, hurricanes, earthquakes. I kid you not. Normal feels great. Did experience canceled side trips, which was a disappointment.
May 31 is upon us and we’re back in business eye to eye. At last. We will try the limited hours for a bit, and then expand back to the usual—8 to 3. Getting back to normal is going to feel great. People! I miss people.
Everyone, enjoy your summer. Hopefully no evacuations or smoke. A nice uneventful summer is in need.
