Glad to see kids getting back at it.  Saw a school bus today with little passengers... it's been too long.

Yup!
Our Gkids have been in school since September, every other day. The off day is Zoom classes.
Our daughter has been in class teaching every day since September.

Heard this morning that Texas is fully re-opened with some pullback caveats in place.  Perhaps too soon, hard to say really, but someone has to go first. Great news on the J&J vaccine and further use of operation warp speed; getting through the red tape and folks immunized ASAP.

Ohio opened up vaccines to those over 50 as of today. It's not a smooth process, but I was able to got on the schedule for first dose next Friday. I did not really realize how the last year has really effected me, but the sense of relief just getting in the schedule was real.

As an aside, all the "good" ways to get vaccinated appear to be online. Who is looking out for the older, less-tech-savvy people in all this? It's not exactly trivial to figure out all the different systems, the most effective of which is not the most user friendly and is pretty glitchy due to the demand.

Excellent point.  There are many elderly people who get completely overwhelmed by the new standards and forms of communication.

Yeah, a good friend of mine navigated all the garbage to get his dad an appointment, then he was asked to get appointments for uncles and aunts. He was glad to do it, but what happens if there isn't a person willing and able to do it?

And if those people don’t have anyone to help them either. Not all families have willing members to assist those elderly

You know, this would be a great service to offer folks in that situation and I'd do it for free. Kind of like the senior meals on wheels programs many communities have.

First tee time of the year scheduled for this weekend. 😍

Expecting frost in the AM, but should be first or second off whenever they give the all clear. Hoping for low 40s and sunshine.

Hell yeah! There’s something special about the first round. Enjoy it with all those new sticks!

Bonita Springs, midway between Naples and Fort Myers. The in-laws snowbird for a couple of months there every year so we usually go down the last 2 weeks of march.

Great location!!  I used to visit a very good friend of mine in Naples before he passed away (heart attack on the golf course).  I got to play Pelican Bay between Naples and Bonita Springs before it went private.  I love Arthur Hills designed courses.
