While many things could be said about the state of the nation (or more specifically our province) it is probably best if I (Brendan) don't rant too much about the sad state of affairs. COVID-19 is out of control and our leaders have more or less abandoned ship. This week the province did open up vaccinations to those 40+ years old through pharmacies. This meant playing a ridiculous game worse than trying to register children for summer camps to secure a spot at a pharmacy for the pair of us. In the end we were successful and the whole experience was actually pretty good. The next day less so - but if that's the price to pay to put this pandemic to rest it is a small one.
