    Thanks you guys. I seem to be slowly crawling out of it. Better today than yesterday. That bloody headache is gone! Wife still struggling a bit, but doesn't look too dangerous.

    Cheers all.

    The question is: What do get if you have 69 and 19?

    We had a wave go through our grounds & greens staff a few weeks ago. All were young and weren't adversely affected. Today, our clubhouse manager tested positive. Was in the clubhouse when he was the past couple days. Stayed masked up. Still, will probably quarantine for the next 10 days. Need to regrip some clubs and do some paint fill experimenting so might just have some home time. Wife has already moved me out of the bedroom into a spare room.

    Messaged my doctor's office. They came back saying if I had contact closer than 6 feet with someone testing positive for more than 15 minutes to self quarantine. If not, just watch for symptoms. I don't think I was ever within 6 feet of the gentleman and, if so, would have been just passing by. I didn't play this morning. Hauled dirt for a project in the back yard. Spent time cleaning up my golf shop. Will probably move back upstairs, but not be too "huggy" with the wife. The dog and I slept quite well in the spare bedroom last night. Will probably use those sleeping arrangements for the next week or so.

    Total chaos, here. No one knows anything. A few of the politicians and CEO's have been vaccinated. They just moved the "over 75" to "over 65" but say it might be late February or early March before we have vaccine available. Watching some areas where people are receiving vaccine by the hundreds and others, like here, where we don't know anything. Local news, this morning, showed the CEO of a hospital getting his second dose. Our granddaughter who works the COVID ward at a nursing home hasn't even had it offered yet.

    We got our shots at Publix grocery/pharmacy. Very well organized online appointment software and operation at the store. They will schedule and contact us for our 2nd dose. Smooth!

    NC has moved to 1B: 65 and older. My parents (78 and 83) got their first dose this past Friday.

    My 5th back surgery scheduled for tomorrow just got cancelled, with no reschedule, due to some asshole deciding Covid patients have priority. I have been waiting for surgery since November, have had to go to and pay for appointments for MRIs, EKGs, labs, Covid tests, and have been in constant excruciating pain. I can't walk without a walker or I risk falling. And there is nothing I can do about it. If I ever do get another surgery appointment, I'll have to repeat all the tests and pay for them again, too. What a good health care system we have.
