COVID-19 vaccines more readily available
Happy birthday to the sweetest man in Nixburg, Pete Ott, for April 25, when he celebrates another year.
It seems now that there are plenty of COVID-19 vaccinations available for anyone age 16 or older that wants them. You just need to call a local doctor’s office or hospital, and you will be afforded an appointment straight away now that the rush has passed. The proof is in the pudding with the results; either get protected or have the possibility of serious illness, or in some cases even death. Plus with the vaccinations comes a card as proof that you got yours done and where that was; you may have to show this proof card at a later date so that others will feel safe. The alternative would be always wearing a mask and staying away from those that you may infect. I know from a doctor that these vaccinations help with many things, including flu and other illnesses, especially if you have an underlying health condition that is serious.
Hopefully Rhett Brown, the Otts’ great-grandson, is feeling better now. He had a double ear infection last week. His daddy is one of those lucky ones that carry a good antibody for COVID-19, and every so often he will be asked to give blood to help someone who has a bad case of the coronavirus, and he is happy to do his part to help others. He understands as his wife, Holley, is a nurse.
My caring friend living on the lake in Coosa County, on Sweet Water Trail, Bong Koczur, sold her home and has now moved to Orlando, where the rest of her family is living. I will miss her terribly, but she will be happier close to her brothers, daughters and grandchildren.
So many friends I miss with the pandemic here for such a long time, including Jackie Dean and the Chit-Chatters ladies lunching group, Mrs. Allen and the knitting group at the Senior Center/Sportplex, Neta Stephens, Pat Garnett, Betty Price, and Sheila Denney.
Enjoy this changing weather, and especially the beautiful sunshine that Mother Nature is sending our way. Soon it will be time for a picnic in the park, whether local or a state park.
Until next time, keep smiling.
