Mrs. Spring and I have been trying to keep the local restaurants in business by getting more carry-out than we used to and leaving large tips. Today, we went to the “big city” near us (population less than 8,000) and went to a pub that we hadn’t tried for a while. Although the temperature was only in the 50s, compared to the last several weeks the weather was downright balmy.
Much to our surprise, it was almost normal. There were many people inside eating and drinking and even several couples eating outside. One couple even had two small dogs and the waitress obviously knew both the couple and the dogs and really made a fuss over them. I believe it involved bacon.
When we left, we both reflected on how great it made us feel to see what life used to be like
pre-covid before the various layers of government used Covid as an excuse to force shutdowns and other unnecessary restrictions.
