Mum got a COVID vaccine appointment!

My mother, who is in her 80s, is all set to get her shot tomorrow.  She lives up in WestChester, 30 minutes away from Grand Central Station in Manhattan by train.

Good for her!

Who knows when my wife and I will get ours, living as we do (for now) in a cesspool state.

I figure we should be okay by summer, in terms of us both getting shots — after all, my wife isn’t even age qualified to get the vaccine here yet.

Then I hope we will be able make plans to visit a place in France — maybe !! — to see if we would like to retire there permanently, and get the hell away from this angry, racist, largely moronic state for good — (sudden pivot) do you remember Mercury Morris and Jim Kiick?

Look at those vacant eyes, bro, now, alas, gone.

Back to 2021.

More on that France thingie by summer, when it becomes possible for Americans to again travel to Europe, and our plans materialize.

  1. Bravo pour ta mère! I’m trying to get la mienne vaccinated- she just turned 95. Pas facile à NY. This is the time we normally go to Nice for several weeks. Hélas, we’re stuck sous la neige. I’ve wanted to retire en France après mère, but the rather crappy exchange rate and plenty of connards me fait hésiter.

  2. hi Eric, Nice to hear from you! My wife and i hope to be visiting the Soustons area in the fall — providing we can, vis-a-vis the Covid lockdowns etc. Nouvelle Aquitaine seems relatively free of the Ordre Nouveau types that seem to have always infested Nice, since our student days there — plus the plage there is real sand, not cailloux. On verra.
