    Yep, but I'm beginning to question the why of it. I want to work less and they want me to work more for less.

    Not that anyone follows hockey here but my wife is brokenhearted about the Rangers buying out the contract of The King today.

    His show was cancelled years ago. They just let his contract run out.

    Some gangsters had a contract out on him, though.

    JDPNYY went to vacation in South Carolina last week.
    Despite no symptoms but due to ongoing dental hell, he went to get a COVID test.
    Negative results, unlike the President.

    I just found out yesterday that one of the college kids (he goes to Clemson) I worked with this past summer has Covid. I swapped a couple texts with him and he's feeling better but says he still has no energy. He also said it felt like death.

    He's 21 years old and it hit him hard. The 62 year old fredgmuggs wants a hard pass on Covid.

    In other news I got out of work early today because of a golf outing(Yeah, they've started those up again but have a hard limit of 100 max) and stopped CVS for a flu shot. My wife's sister is the head pharmacist. It doesn't hurt to know someone.

    I got mine at your favorite store--Costco, with special immune booster for old farts. The place was empty. I felt totally safe doing some shipping while they processed the paperwork. The few folks in there all had masks and the wide aisles etc. made me feel pretty secure.

    When I was there an older woman came in and she wanted the booster but she was told they were out of them and probably wouldn't have them again for a few weeks. But my sister-in-law called another CVS to see if they had it (which they did) and sent her over there after setting up her info for the other store.

    I just wanted to give my sister-in-law a pat on the back. She's good people.

    My pulmonologist warned me the senior shots are in short supply and I should get mine early. My Costco is now out of the senior vaccines.

    So any old farts out there should get theirs soonest.
