My son’s school made it all the way to Thanksgiving break before going back to remote learning

It was a helluva run from mid-August to mid-November. We received notice Tuesday afternoon that my son’s elementary school is going back to remote learning starting next week for five days, but that will cover a two-week period and let everyone take a deep breath & try to relax a little bit. The blue checkmarks of the social media world told us kids going back to school would be a disaster and the only option was to lock the children in a house and sit them in front of a computer and distance learn. Yet here we are at the Thanksgiving arts & crafts part of calendar, and the school made it with zero issues in our son’s class. Across the school building, there were very few issues. The teachers buckled down and kicked ass to make this all happen. You’re damn right my wife and I are thankful for how things have gone. We have a son who is all jacked up to attend school and is progressing through his lessons after a chaotic year.

I wouldn’t be against the school district telling the teachers to enjoy a couple of personal days before 2020 ends. Get the mentals recharged. Maybe enjoy a couple of late-night glasses of wine, wake up with a hangover during the Thanksgiving break, let loose one or two nights — at home after 10 p.m., of course, because the governor says so — and then let’s get after it until Christmas break. Recharge again and let’s bulldoze through 2021.

• In basement news, I got my hands on an apartment-sized fridge for the two-tap keg system that I expect to be functional here in a couple weeks. My brother, who works in the beer industry and is a garage fridge expert, says I might even have room to leave a couple racks in the fridge for bean dip tray storage. Now I need to start pricing quarter barrels from the distributor. Any suggestions on what should be on tap first?

• Here’s something I never thought I’d see. People are escaping from NYC and moving to…Serbia! I was thinking Tennessee, Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina would be hot. Turns out there are no quarantine requirements for Americans in Serbia. Keep Serbia on your must-visit list in 2021.

• It’s a shame we won’t get Ole Miss-A&M Saturday. There’s a good chance we would’ve seen a 73-59 game over 5 1/2 hours. It would’ve been wild.

  1. So, teachers (backed by their despicable union cronies) deserve to kick back and recharge because they actually did their job for about six weeks? And enough of the teachers are doing God’s work nonsense. Tey clearly showed their hand during all of this. The only thing likely to get bulldozed next year is our liberty, especially with Joe and the Lockdown boys running the show. I just talked to three small business owners yesterday (all restaurants) that won’t open after this current lockdown is over. Wake up.

    • David…It’ll be funny as all get out next semester when the 5th and 6th graders come home from school all jacked up about gender modification class and how they’re gonna get to explore their true inner selves. Won’t that be a hoot????

    • Well, I’m definitely not a Lockdown boy. I just thought it would be nice to have a teacher — whether it’s a charter school, Catholic school or public school — to have their heads straight. As someone who has family and many friends working in law enforcement, I’d like to see those people get a recharge too. No need to jump to so many conclusions about what I believe, David.

    Hows about…Yuengling !!!
    Yuengling is actually the oldest brewery in America. Founded in 1829 by German immigrant David G. Yuengling, it was originally called Eagle Brewery. To get through Prohibition, the company made ice cream, which can still be purchased. (Available in the Buckeye State). We get it here in NY.

    Quick story, Joe…I used to see a Yuengling driver at my local BD (beer distributor) on Friday afternoons after he made his delivery. He was driving back to Delaware where his depot was. So a bunch of us are all looking up at the choices on the growler board, and here he is getting some 9 or 10% abv IPA. So I say how come he’s not just drinking his own brand, and his classic line, “life’s too short to drink 5% beer”. LOL 25 years later still makes me smile.
