    So, as a souvenir, I got the Folio Society's new Special Coronatastic edition of Daniel Defoe's Journal of the Plague Year.

    Plus ca change and all that...

    Most appropriate literary choice.

    I survived the Corona pandemic, and all I got was this lousy plague book...

    I'm pretty sure they're already used to it.

    I would, but the daily "My 60th birthday is in a couple of months" aches and pains in all of the joints in my body went from (on a scale of 1 to 10) a 3 to a 47 overnight. I could barely hold my coffee cup earlier. It was funny last night, but now this **** hurts.

    They say the second dose can have much stronger side effects.

    Certainly true with me. My wife, thankfully, says she hasn't had any real problems with the second dose; just a bit of minor fatigue. And as I/we passed the 24-hour mark (from the time we were injected) the aches and pains began to subside, so I guess I'm another statistic on the Covid ledgers.

    Might wanna call 911 Al. It seems to have affected your speech center. I’m detecting a new Cali drawl.

    I have another 3 months to wait and ponder my fate til the second dose of Moderna. It might come up sooner as the shipments are increasing in quantity but the gov't is realizing the nightmare of delivering the different vaccines to the right initial recipients. First go round was easy.....you got what you got but now for number 2 they have to schedule separately causing a logistical nightmare unless they mix and match.

    3 months. Wow. They barely had the bandages on our arms after the first dose before we were ushered over to the nice young lady who informed us they had already scheduled our second doses in four weeks.

    Our gov't was a bit late to the party having thrown their lot in with the Chinese....thankfully the Chinese bailed on us and we were left a begging for vacines. But it looks like now the US is over the hump and the manufacturing is ramped up our supplies are starting to flow. Our leader even said Canadians "may" be able to travel by this summer. I won't be holding my breath.

    Bowen, if you can hear what he's writing, you might want to pick up the phone yourself!

    I had heard the US was beginning to get desperate for the vaccines--all of that macho posturing nonsense of being the biggest and best country on Earth--so they started throwing money at the situation in order to get their/our vaccines before other countries. I don't know how true that is, but it sounds like something our government would do.
