This Friday ( May 15th) marks the beginning of a long three day holiday weekend for folks in Canada. Monday is Victoria Day and the usually activity filled weekend of barbecues, outdoor parties and other socializing activities will be postponed this year thanks to the arrival of the COVID 19 virus and its definitely downer behavior.
Liquor outlets began stocking up on their supplies early this week to meet the expected rush of thirsty customers. Traditionally this was a family oriented three day event but this year the pandemic has put the kaibosh on all anticipated weekend fun. Drat.
Anyway I purchased my bottle of Captain Morgan spiced light rum one week ago hoping to not have to pay the jacked up price many outlets added to their liquor selling price.
I was surprised though that there was no line up of people outside the depot patiently waiting their turn to enter this sacred domain.
Customers did wait patient and well distanced in front of the neighborhood Dollar Store whose security personnel limited the number of people in the store to keep the numbers low.
I guess we all have the right to party alone and keep our spirits up by now and then raising our glass and saluting ourselves for being so self isolating.
I am trying to socially distance myself from my bottle of rum but figure what the heck a man can only do so much for the country.
Cheers! A tip of the hat and my half filled glass to one and all.
Enjoy the start of an uneventful summer folks!
