From a FB friend-

My dad had polio in the early 50s. My oldest brother was a wee baby and they had recently moved to Morristown from Montreal.  After spending a long time in the havemeyer unit at memorial he was fortunate to get away with a gimpy leg. However, as he got older he suffered post polio syndrome. You'd best believe my mother was at the front of the line to get us vaccinated.

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

I recall taking polio vaccine orally on a sugar cube. And even after the vaccine my mom would still not allow me to go under the fire plug in the summer. 🤔

One of my grandfathers had a brush with polio as a kid. I think it just made him crankier.
The sugar cube with the pink spot. Ditto.
If I wasn't in school, my mother shooed us outside to get into whatever we could.
It's a miracle I reached puberty.

Adding White to the GOP label seems somewhat redundant.
Actually, the numbers of black, and especially Latino Republicans is growing steadily. Most of the Hispanic folks I know and quite a few black folks  I work with are very conservative.

Last evening I attended the wake of the 1st close friend I knew who died of Covid. 73 years old and healthy and active. Both he and his wife tested positive. Neither showed symptoms.  Quarantined for 10days and thought they were good to go. He started shots - Got 1st one.  He then came down with pneumonia - waited too long before going to hospital. They immediately admitted him and he died 2 days later. Not sure if the shot triggered it or not.

sorry for your loss Al, this thing is such a crap shoot

Wife and I are set to get second shot next Wednesday. First shot felt pain in my arm for probably 24 hours. Wife had a good case of fatigue the day after hers. Hoping the next round is the same.

Moderna #2 yesterday at 1:00.  Minor headache.  If I were still working, I wouldn't take a sick day.  Same with my wife.

In a few weeks, I may get my first haircut in a year.

Small ball here. Local fam we have constant contact with, only. Only getting a half bushel of oysters.
Be smart, folks.

Oysters? Am I local fam? You can throw the oysters 6 ft to me and I can wear a mask.

I am local fam!

Well, I may have gone in, but I'd have left early to take a nap. Our arms are sore, and we're tired.
