On Saturday, I finally got my second dose of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. I settled in for a long weekend of nausea, headaches, and fatigue following the shot, the same side effects most of my friends seem to have endured following their second shot.

Except I felt fine all weekend! Honestly it was even easier than the first shot when my arm was quite sore for a day.

This of course leads me to wonder: what the hell are the rest of you getting laid out by the vaccine doing wrong?

I feel your pain, bro

I tease, of course. But now I’m fully vaccinated against Covid and that feels good!

And in other, more exciting (to me anyway) news, I got a late birthday present from my wife! A surprise appearance to be sure. You wanna see it???

The 1922 Commemorative Ulysses Grant Silver Half Dollar I’ve been looking for! I had mentioned it to my wife and she managed to track one down for me 😃

I’m super excited to finally have one, and it’s by far my favorite coin in my collection.

And in case anyone was wondering, I will never ever sell it. This is the kind of coin I’ll be keeping in the family, passing it down.

So yeah, an exciting weekend for me! How about you fine folks, how was your weekend? Let me know!
