Seymour Toze and Lady Lynda peruse the internet travel sites for the cheapest deal for their vacation motel. They search several money saving web sites for motels They carefully scrutinize several choices and decide on the Showbiz hotel in Atlantic City. They like that the place includes an olympic sized pool on the highest floor, the 20th floor. The couple are pleased the perks were air conditioning, short walk to the shore, private balcony, a mini refrigerator, a safe for their valuables, maid service , a wide screen television, a view of the ocean, rooms for non smokers and especially queen size bed The twosome hugged each with glee when they discovered everything including breakfast was for less then seventy dollars.
“Oh wow it sounds lovely. So glad there’s air conditioning. It can get quite humid in the summertime in that shore town. A cozy beach. What do they mean? inquired Lady Lynda quite intrigued. Seymour replied I don’t now but I’d sure like to find out. I suppose we can ask about that when we dial the motel. That’s easy enough to find out I know we’ll both treasure our visit to the private balcony.
Lady Lynda and her mate enter the lobby of the Showbiz hotel for the staff to check their bags. They are exhausted and ready for a good night sleep on the firm mattresses on their queen sized bed. They both hug each and plop into bed. They embrace each other with utter joy feeling crazy in love. They are fully dressed …..so far. ” We really were lucky finding such a terrific bargain” exclaimed Seymour. “Yes that’s one good thing about the reopening of the US from the lockdown. I believe with my heart the states should do their utmost to do it safely. Including here. But oh do I love this fabulous bargain. Ordinarily this motel would cost close to one hundred dollars and we get it for sixty nine dollars. I’m so glad we chose AC. Now when we wake up tomorrow we’ll be eating the breakfasts I put in the fridge. Plus the sugar free sweet tea. Then its heading on out to the “Ripley’s Believe it or not” Museum. Next we’ll tour “Lucy the Elephant hotel” enthused Toze.. Oh that would so entertaining Seymour commented. Oh I’m looking forward to tomorow.
The next day the twosome explores what adventures they’ll experience on the famous boardwalk.
Some time in the foreseeable future.

The days swiftly go by as they count the days to their respite as they combat cabin fever. The two choices are narrowed down to Bridgeport CT and Atlantic City NJ. Lady Lynda beams as she tells her mate Bridgeport is her mother’s birthplace and its the home of the P.T. Barnum museum. She excitedly continues to explain the museum reminds her of her dear freaks. “Can you imagine the tragedy of suffering from a deviated septum? Oh the horror!!! Or being from Texas with an accept where nobody can make out what you’re saying? Oh the tragic case of being tone deaf and not realizing it ” she exclaimed wearily wiping her brow.
“Seymour mon amore. Oh how clever of me. My little bonmot Seymour my amore and it rhyme. Mr Toze smiled wanly. as he pensively listened to his wife. “Oh Lady Lynda my paramour, my amore. His wife grinned happily. Seymour replied I feel I’m between two major worlds. I understand you choosing Bridgeport. I’m leaning toward Atlantic City NJ. There’s the beach, the delightful water I love being wet especially with the waves splashing upon my hot body. I’m sure you like me listen intently to what Dr. Anthony Fauci says and Dr. Birx too. Oh I love her colorful scarves. I am so glad they gave the go ahead. Heaven forbid we spread the virus to others. I know you and I will wear our masks and social distance.,..except for each other when we’re out. I feel torn. “I know the feeling Lady Lynda so do I replied Seymour Toze.
The two turn on the local news to eagerly check out the latest COVID-19 news. They immediately notice every state is in the yellow stage. Their choices are narrowed down to Bridgeport CT and Atlantic City NJ. Seymour’s wife chose Bridgeport CT. Lady Lynda gushes with excitement as mentioned There in Bridgeport you can see a lifesize statue of Charles Stratton. Much better knownfor his stage name Tom Thumb. “Oh Lady Lynda Mr Barnum was a fraud. His earliest exhibit was an old shriveled black woman who he claimed was Pres. George Washington’s babysitter. How can you praise such a scalywag. Besides my pick Atlantic City features a branch of “Ripley’s Believe it not Museum” It even features a life size statue of the world’s tallest man “Robert Wadlow” at a fraction of an inch under nine feet tall. There’s lots to do too. he enthused. “What is there to do in Bridgeport CT except for the PT Barnum museum. A sightseeing site of a major huckster Seymour sneered. Lady Lynda delicately, ever so properly wiped a single tear that wafted from her marble blue eye. “How dare you Seymour Bridgeport happens to be the birthplace of my dear sweet mother.” Seymour Toze tensed as he was taken by surprise. “Oh dearest dear I by no means meant to insult your female parent. My point is there’s so much more to in AC. There’s lots to do besides that immoral pastime gambling. There of course is the beach. We can collect seashells. We can put our toesies in the ocean water” “Oh what a connumdrum” sighed Lady Lynda. Mother’s hometown, PT Barnum vs AC boardwalk, Ripley’s the Beach. The beach did seem tempting. “Now that you mentioned the ocean and beach Atlantic City NJ does sound rather delightful. AC for us.
