Freeeedommmmmmm, finnnaaallllyyyyyy!

Howdy, y’all! OK, so maybe that headline is a bit dramatic — or unreadable (translation: Freedom, finally). But for the first time in a year, I feel free. The self-isolation that started March 17, 2020, will finally be over starting April 7, 2021, as I have gotten the COVID-19 vaccination.

I have been getting a flu shot for 19 years (except one year when I was too poor to afford one, andContinue reading “It’s that time of year again”
