Whether or not the shoppers’ billfolds could stand the extension is another matter altogether.

The Carnival left town. The cowboys and cowgirls loaded up their horses in their horse trailers and headed for other Rodeos around the country and Canada. The Indian Village was taken down and the tribes returned to their reservations. The most exciting event was the Indian bareback relay race. . .But all the hustle and bustle disappeared the day after closing, with Main St. open again to traffic and the horse pooh cleaned up as if it had never been there.

The Guidepost Galloping Gourmets were getting restless. Summer was waning and the travel possibilities were ever slimmer as Covid variants reared their ugly heads. "Delta, Smelta," I said, " enough worrying about variants. Let's go Island hopping." Just as the crew scrambled to find passports, I told them all they needed was their metro pass.

The French national anthem played as a filmed video took viewers to sumptuous sites in Paris. It was the apéritif of the coming Summer Olympics 2024. One could only hope that the accursed pandemic will just be a nightmare that will have been long forgotten by the time the Pairs Games come around – but for the lessons that will have been learned.

At the height of the pandemic, on 2 March 2020, the Tokyo Organizing Committee had confirmed that preparations for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics were "continuing as planned". The IOC did the same. But the widespread sentiment was that Tokyo 2020 should be postponed if not entirely canceled. Today, not even a no-spectator restriction would appease those who don't want the Olympics this summer.
