My husband is most anxiously awaiting the reopening of barber shops. I am most looking forward to hitting consignment stores again. What’s yours?

The Zoo. My daughter loves to go and we have a season pass. We were last at the Louisville Zoo on March 7th, right before everything closed down. She has been asking to go back and I have to explain we can’t go.

I would also like to get a haircut....it’s been some time since the last one!

Yep, the Barber shop would be my first stop. I seen a petition the other day, supposedly being sent to the Governor, for Barber shops and hair dressers be open for one customer at a time...sounds good to me. Other than that, I'd like to hook up the RV and just go somewhere...anywhere at this point in time.

When this whole thing started and before everything was closed I went out and got a good haircut on the short side. I'm still ok. If this virus gets me, I don't want to go out looking like Ben Franklin.

I just want to be able to meet friends for lunch and other meetings. I want to know if I can safely host a long-scheduled club meeting in my home by early June, or if I need to postpone or cancel it. I want to go to the library. I want to be able to go to the Red River Gorge. I want to take a road trip to visit relatives 600 miles away. I want to go to the Smokies and Blue Ridge Parkway. I miss weekend festivals, concerts, and craft fairs.

I want to do these things without feeling as if I am risking my health - and life. But since I can't do that at present, I am staying home and maintaining reasonable content with what I still have and still can do safely.

I am in more regular contact with friends and family. I am learning new ways of living. I am well, and that's worth ten thousand road trips and festivals and lunches. All the things I miss will return, someday. I just need to be patient and when that glorious day arrives, celebrate them with all my heart.

Haven't been too many business activities I'm missing out on during the paranoia. I still get food from the places we always did, just have to eat it at home. Still shopping where I always shop. I'm still driving to Ky. Dam and Kentucky Lake to go fishing. But, like I've said in other threads, the only problem is the fish believe in social distancing. They won't get within 6 feet of my hook. My wife, with her health problems, doesn't get out much. She's more worried about catching the flu than the paranoia virus. So, once a week, I've been taking her for a drive around the area, just to get her out for some fresh air. No stopping and going in places, just drive around seeing the area. This Thursday we drove out and found beautiful downtown Monkey's Eyebrow, Ky. lol
We just both know you don't have to be paranoid, just careful.

Lol - I know. I’m still trying to figure out how glasses and eye exams didn't make the original essential services cut. Our neighbor broke his glasses and had to go to Tennessee to get a new pair. I understand they are one of things that got to open this week.
