My elderly parents got their first Covid-19 shots today!

My college professor wife is to get her second shot in a couple of weeks.

Now, if my in-laws could get theirs, I'd feel much better.

I'm not quite old enough to get my shot anytime soon - maybe in the summer.

7. It's not all paradise and puppy dogs in Arkansas.

As I say, my in-laws (both with significant comorbidities) can't get their shots. I am pleased that my parents got their shots.

6. I got my first one today! The place was full of OLD people!

Here in MA, 75-and-up are eligible. I looked around the huge room and everybody was old except me! (J/k, I'm 76).

I was so excited, I took one of every kind of sticker on the way out. 🙂
