Got It

I went to the Northside Health Center yesterday morning around 9:30 am. They told me that they were only administering the first dose at that location.  They then made a call and sent me to the Acres Homes site where the second dose was being administered.  I went there and they gave me my shot.

I was back at my place by 11:15 am.

Yesterday afternoon, I got a call from Houston Health wanting to set up an appointment for me for my second dose. Sigh.

I now have a sense of relief that my Dad, my older sister and I have our second doses. My younger sister will get her second on Monday.  We still have to mask up and take precautions, but still, it feels a whole lot better.  As of this morning, I am not experiencing any side effects, just a slightly sore arm.

State legislators held hearings on the freeze yesterday.  Most of them sounded real upset.  Do you really think they are going to address last week’s issues?  In order to do that, they have to hold Gov. Greg Abbott accountable.  Commentary is not betting the public will be served.  As it gets warmer – well, you get the picture.

First Lady Jill Biden and President Joe Biden will visit H-Town today. 

I mentioned last year when Baseball Hall of Fame great Al Kaline left us. He played for the Tigers.  Did you know that he was the youngest starting player in the history of the MLB All Star Game?  He was 20.  Now you know.

In 1980, Jose Cruuuuuz finished third in the NL MVP Award voting after batting .302 with 91 RBIs and 36 stolen bases.  Hall of Fame great Mike Schmidt won the award and Hall of Fame great Gary Carter was runner-up.  Now you know, again.
