24 hours after my 2nd Moderna shot...

I definitely feel achy and fatigued. My arm hurts to the point that I don't want to lift it too far, or pick up anything too heavy. I've coughed a few times and feel something going on with my lungs/chest. Not sure what that is.

My eyes are still blue though. I haven't yet started growing a 2nd set of arms. I do worry about the MS spy drones though. The good news is that it's storming outside and conditions aren't favorable for flying spy drones.

8:10AM this morning I'll be getting my first dose of the Moderna vaccine.

I heard on the news that Florida was allowing those with high risk conditions to get the shot. The conditions include high blood pressure, being overweight, and cigarette smoking. I don't smoke, but do chew tobacco - not sure if that counts. I'm certain that I'm about 20 lbs overweight. The thing that did it for me though was that I have high blood pressure. The good news is that the company that is administering the vaccine where I'm going is the company that runs the medical office where I see my doctor. My records were available to the person that I spoke with on the phone.

I'm 56 and am getting the vaccine today. My wife is 55 and she works in the medical industry so she got her 2nd Moderna shot about a month ago. Our house will be fully vaccinated in 28 days.

I live in an area where easily 70 percent of the people don't wear masks. Ever. Where the greatest percentage of people believe that the virus is a hoax. This is a banner day for me to say the least. I think I'm going to get a t-shirt that says something snarky about being vaccinated and pointing out the stupidity of people who refuse to wear masks... something leading to the phrase "So Suck It".

Gaetz says he would resign from Congress to represent Trump in impeachment trial

Source: WEAR-TV Channel 3 ABC Affiliate

Rep. Matt Gaetz said during an appearance on Steve Bannon's podcast Wednesday that, if asked, he would step down from Congress to defend former President Donald Trump in his upcoming impeachment trial.

Appearing on "War Room: Pandemic," the Northwest Florida congressman said, "If the [former] president called me and wanted me to go defend him on the floor of the Senate, that would be the top priority in my life."

Lexington Lab Band

Someone posted a youtube video earlier today. It was of a song that I absolutely love. I've been stuck in Youtube since. I found this and thought that some might find it interesting as well. The musicianship in this "band" is amazing. I'll be stuck on their site for quite some time.


Life is good... 3 days into a new beginning. The clouds have parted and I see the sun again.

Watching The Today Show....

And watching Trump leaving the White House for the final time. What a wonderful sight that is.

Buh bye! Forever!

About mac2766

I'm in my 50's. I served 6 years in the Air Force. I've worked in the following fields: Military; Civilian Meteorologist; Dial-Up Internet Service Provider; Equipment Rental; Information Services; Currently working as an electrician. Married for just over 30 years. Was a registered Republican for the first election I was involved in and voted for Reagan. I changed my affiliation afterward and have voted Democrat ever since. I am a Bernie Sanders supporter. Any person that promotes a platform that supports the greatest portion of the American people is a person that I can support. Why would anyone have a problem with that?
