  1. With a pandemic around, do we really need more people around. Places where there was a strong tourist trade this summer suffered significant increases in virus spread.

    1. Had a friend down for a visit over the weekend she brought along her two grandchildren to show them the “charm” of the neighborhood.Most people we encountered wore face coverings but there was one issue that we encountered that disturbed me.Decided to send them home with some cookies and Italian pastry. My friend said she heard about Mike’s pastry so off we went.There were the bikers parked in front and some guy outside was directing customers which line to get in. The place ( as usual) was packed .With about 6 lines of people crowded into the store.Social distancing was nowhere to be found so I opted out.Not going to risk the health of or my friend , the kids or me for a couple of canollis. Don’t know how they get away with that?

  2. Happy Labor Day. Enjoy it as much as they will let you. Not here, have good time there …. Where ever that is.
