FEBRUARY TRAVEL QUOTES

In a few days we will have gone through two months all ready and going into month number three.

Some people have even been on not one, but a few of their own 30 Plus Teams Tours.

Sorry, the Sports Diva isn’t one of them.

But God willing, that’s going to change.

What about you?

Have you gone on your own 30 Plus Teams Tour yet no matter if it’s in your own backyard or the state or country over, if you can.

As usual, let these quotes inspire you.

GETTING THE CORONAVIRUS VACCINE

I had been debating and debating about it since December or whenever it first was offered.

When it came time to do it, I was late.

Everything was booked up.

I finally got lucky and finally did it.

What is “it”?

I got my first Coronavirus Vaccine.

As a senior citizen over 65 years of age in the state of New York, I fell under category 1B as dictated by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

1B meant that senior citizens would be in the first group to get one of the two vaccines offered in the state, Pfiser and Moderna.

Group 1A was essential workers, and they were the first to receive the vaccine.

After I finally decided that I was going to take the vaccine, I found out how hard it was to schedule an appointment.

Many places only took you if you lived in the area.

Everything was booked up and it didn’t seem to matter if you tried to make appointments at CVS, Rite Aid or Walgreens or even at Yankee Stadium or Citi Field.

(Yes, the mayor of New York City and governor were so desperate for ALL New Yorkers to get this vaccine that they even made it available to get a shot at baseball parks.)

There were even appointments at the huge convention center, the Javits Center and Aqueduct Race Track, here in Queens.

The sad part was that you had to be vaccinated in the place that you lived.

So basically, if you live in The Bronx, don’t even think of going across the George Washington Bridge to New Jersey and try to get vaccinated there.

It’s not going to happen.

Finally two new centers opened up.

Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn and York College in Queens where I went.

These two are the largest vaccination centers in New York City, vaccinating 3,000 people in one day.

Except for a little bit of soreness, I’m feeling okay.

Now I’m not going to get into a debate with some of you on if you should get the vaccine or not.

It’s up to you and besides, that’s not how the Sports Diva rolls.

DO YOU BOO, but don’t forget the hand sanitizer and the mask,okay?

My second shot, also Pfiser, is going to be in the middle of March.

It’s also going to be at York College.

After much debating, I finally got off my rear end and put my feelings and fears to the side and got the Coronavirus Vaccine.

What took me so long?

EVEN TRAVELING DURING A PANDEMIC, DO YOUR RESEARCH

We’re still in the middle of the virus that won’t go away but many people in the United States are still traveling.

Even if you’re doing your own 30 Plus Teams Tour, one thing never changes.

Please do your research before you go away, especially now during this pandemic.

Here in the United States, every state has their own requirements for entering that state.

If you don’t follow or research the requirements, your own 30 Plus Teams Tour is going to be delayed, let alone ruined.

My two great neices, S and B, plus S’s almost two year old son, found that out the hard way, or at least my two great neices did.

(I’m only using their initials not to embarrass the heck out of them, but because both of them are on social media and S just happens to be a reality star.)

Anyway, they were all set to go to on a 13 hour flight from Miami to Honolulu.

Bags were packed for all three of them, tickets purchased, covid tests done for the three of them.

They were ready for luau and lei time .

Or so they thought.

When the flight landed, they discovered that somebody should have done their research on Hawaii’s requirements for entrance to the Hawaiian Islands from the mainland.

The test that the three of them took in Miami didn’t hold water for Hawaii.

Baby S didn’t even need to have another covid-19 test.

(Yes, I said ANOTHER COVID-19 test. At almost two, Baby Boy S has traveled more than his great great aunt, the Sports Diva, and unlike me, he travels in First Class always!)

As for my two great neices, they couldn’t enter Hawaii with the tests they had.

So they left Baby Boy S with his daddy, who was flying in from California, and who did his research.

My two great neices had to fly to another airport to get another covid-19 test that Hawaii would recognize.

They had to take an unscheduled 5 hour flight to SFO, San Francisco International Airport.

There is a happy ending to this though.

They made it to Hawaii at 2am, Hawaii time.

The moral of this blog post is this-.

No matter where your own 30 Plus Teams Tour takes you, please do your research before you travel, especially during this pandemic.
