The Last time I traveled I checked my luggage and it dawned on me that I put my wallet in my suitcase for some reason, Luckily I had my driver's license in my phone sleeve.  I was so thirsty and I did not have any cash. It was an hour before my flight, and yes all the drinking fountains in the airport were shut off because of COVID19. I say it is about time to turn on all the water fountains in Michigan, especially now that summer is here.

Are You A Water Snob?

Now don't get me wrong I can be kind of a water snob. I like my water ice cold and am a fan of Fiji water.  I rarely drink tap water and when I do it is through a Brita water filter that I keep in the fridge.  Will you have a problem drinking out of a water fountain as the Pandemic winds down?
