NANTUCKET, Mass. (AP) — President Joe Biden appeared on the loose Friday in Nantucket.

Biden spent more than an hour walking around downtown Nantucket’s cobblestone streets, popping unannounced into quaint mom-and-pop shops, appearing to make purchases and posing for photos with surprised business owners.

He was accompanied by some of his grandchildren. Biden and his entire family are spending the Thanksgiving holiday on the Massachusetts island, renting a sprawling compound that belongs to his friend and billionaire philanthropist David Rubenstein.

“Hey, Joe,” “We love you, Joe,” some people shouted as Biden passed by on a cold and rainy day. One man was heard telling the 79-year-old president that he looked younger in person.

2. Reassuring for these times

The sheer normalcy of this recounting is flat-out heart-warming.

4. What? No golf?!?

OK, okay, he doesn’t own a golf course there in Nantucket. Does he?

No. Instead of swinging a stick at a little ball — in Secret Service-enforced seclusion (costing us $$,$$$)— President Biden is actively interacting with his family and the citizenry of our country.

How refreshing a change!

5. It sounds for all the world like one of the Hallmark movies that my wife likes so well.

Looks like it, too.

6. And of course faux news is attacking him

For not wearing his mask while shopping in a local store with a masks required sign……good grief
