Wednesday/ everyone, first of May

Now we are tall and Christmas trees are small
And you don’t ask the time of day
But you and I our love will never die
but guess we’ll cry come first of May
– lyrics from First of May, recorded by the Bee Gees in 1969

All Washington State residents older than 16 will qualify to get the COVID-19 vaccine, come May 1.
I will be one of the last group*, 1.2 million of the State’s 6 million adults, to get my shot (or two shots).

*I’m not complaining. I’m very lucky to be able to get the vaccine this early, compared to people in most other places around the globe.

I guess it’s time for me to start plotting the moves that I will be willing to make once I am vaccinated. Maybe I will ride the bus again — alongside some wet-nosed ‘passengers’ such as this adorable pooch. His name is Banana and the bus is on Route 62.
