  1. I enjoy going to Disney World and would love to go and take my husband since we have retired. we were unable to take a vacation because I take care of my 97 year old mother and then of course there was the Corona Virus that kept us home and away from people. Which we did not mind so much as there were things we needed to do around the house and inside the house as well. But now we are looking to next year and looking forward to a vacation and relaxing..
