I had an out-of-state visitor this weekend in tiny Rhode Island. The food was good, the views were good, the company was great, but one thing struck me as odd. In all the restaurants we visited, masks were optional. I know, I know, these changes were coming, but I guess I wasn’t fully prepared. This is great. It means we are moving in the right direction, but there are also some things I’m going to miss. Here they are.
