Got the second poke yesterday late afternoon....15 hours later arm is slightly tender to the touch, no other side effects at all...so far. Only advantage to getting up there in years is side effects tend to be less than younger people. Our immune system is less effective than younger folk. It might be a two-edge sword...it's unknown if our system is then less protected. Oh well, guess we'll see. In the meantime and for the foreseeable future it's mask, distancing, etc.

Since it's my three quarters of a century day, I threw caution to the winds and had chorizo and eggs for breakfast.

The duck was brined overnight, seasoned with Chinese 5 spice and coarse salt, loosely 'stuffed' with half a n apple, on 375f for almost 2 hours. It was....delicious.

Now, two days after, I'm looking askance at the 3-4 pounds of turkey meat leftovers in the fridge. There were just the three of us: my youngest, Emily and her partner Jeremy. We got the smallest turkey available, it was around 16 pounds. Emily also did her usual pecan and pumpkin pies. The pies are mostly gone, 'natch, as well as the sides. The turkey meat still sits in the fridge, like a gym sock on a shower rod.
