    In NJ, our governor is allowing parks and golf courses to reopen. Parks must limit parking spaces(to try to keep people close to home), sports fields cannot be used for sports, and playgrounds remain closed. Beaches are still closed and are the boardwalks. I have only been out to go grocery shopping, Lowes, and to pick up take out once a week. Twice I drove to where I lived as a kid to take pictures of the construction of the new store going up from the parking lots across the street(to send to my cousin) and one Sunday Stu and I drove to the cemetery where our families are since we had not been there in months. We hope to take out one of the classic cars this weekend because it is supposed to be nice and just drive. Hopefully, we won't get stopped. I really need to get out and walk around the neighborhood, but for the most part, the weather has been crappy. The winds now are fierce.

    They say our area of NJ, southern NJ, has yet to hit its peak and our county is 4th from the bottom as far as the number of cases and second from the bottom in the number of deaths, however; I don't know how that translates into percentages based on populations.

    Hang in there Walt...your thoughts are exactly what the people of Aruba are saying daily...we need to open our "country" so it does not collapse.

Like Aruba we depend on tourism dollars here, not exclusively, but over 1 billion dollars in revenue every year. There are also over 48,000 workers affected by these closures. Before our city collapses I hope we start to reopen soon.

    I worry that Aruba’s progress in getting this thing somewhat under control would be undone by letting in visitors too early (especially us from the Northeast - NY is still hit pretty bad) but at the same time, Aruba really needs the tourism. I sooo miss Aruba though.

    I had a good laugh today. We’ve been getting a number of deliveries during this pandemic. When I can’t get something in the grocery delivery I often turn to amazon. Today, when my package with Stonewall Kitchen Pancake Mix arrived I saw the envelope and knew it wasn’t going to be my pancake mix. Instead I received a 360 Grace Lace synthetic hair piece!!!

    It took a bit to find a way to contact amazon. The order page showed the order as not returnable so there was no problem with the order button. I finally found an online chat and was told they would credit my account and not to bother returning the hair.
