This past weekend as I was preparing my thoughts for this week’s column, I unexpectedly received a telephone text from an old friend which read: “Good morning Mike. Hope you’re OK and haven’t lost your sense of taste, smell and humor.”

Lose my sense of humor? Not likely. That being said, however, I readily admit that this past year — 2020 — has been no laughing matter for any number of reasons.
