I was just looking at photographs on FB from a fly-in that happened up in Alaska over the weekend. There are some great pics of big-tire planes doing their STOL thing at Skwentna, and I wish I had been there. It looked like a hoot. And as I flipped through them, I came to a photo that stopped me in my tracks. It was of the people at the fly-in hanging out. I’m not really shocked by it. I just wasn’t expecting to see it.
Where I live, there are masks everywhere. Well, not everywhere, but at least at the places where I go, which is to the grocery store and pharmacy very occasionally. Of the folks in Target yesterday, I counted one person out of maybe a hundred or more who wasn’t wearing a mask. And people weren’t being crazy about it, but they were giving each other plenty of room to move. That’s the way it has been here for the past couple of months now. I’d say we’re used to it, but we’re not. We hate it. But it’s what we’re doing.
