One of the original leaders in virtual visits was Skype, followed by Facebook. Now, due to families moving around the globe, it is an everyday occurance. When I moved back to Ireland it was quite handy. Now, due to COVID, virtual meetings are an everyday occurance. With the rise of new strains and the increase in cases of the flu, it is almost essential. My Homeowners Association no longer meets in person. A few of the residents complained but I pointed out that first of all there is no fee for the meeting room and second there are too many complications with sickness. Reluctantly, the homeowners agreed. After all, they really do not want their fees to increase. It is already difficult with inflation and the rise in wages, plants, water, fertilizer, light bulbs, street repairs and more. I frankly like the virtual meetings as I do not have to drive anywhere, line up my dinner before I leave or sit in uncomfortable chairs. The other point about in person meetings is that they tend to drag on. Often it would start at five and sometimes not end until close to nine in the evening. By the time I arrived home, I had no desire for dinner. Now, the attorneys that I do work for have decided that virtual is the new way to go. They are correct in that it reduces the cost of rent. I don’t care as I have worked at home for many years and am adjusted to that way of life. In the Good Gus series there was no such thing as virtual.
