Yesterday my grandson asked me when was I going to go there on the plane, he is three years old and to visit I have to take three planes. The last time I got to give him a hug was June 2019. Retirement was meant to be spending more time with him but covid got in the way. Hopefully in 2022 I will be able to give him a hug but a lot could happen between now and then. I am lucky, I still get to see him, talk to him watch him grow through the courtesy of modern technology. There are so many of us in the same situation but I often think of families who live close but cannot be together, for them it must be even more difficult. This is certainly not normal for any of us. When this subject comes up we tell him that I will visit when everybody is well again.
