  1. - Huh? - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 2:53 pm:

    Doing well. Thanks for asking. How was the doctor’s appointment the other day? Clean bill of health from the heart attack a few years ago?


  2. - MisterJayEm - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 2:55 pm:

    Good enough.

    – MrJM


  3. - Rich Miller - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 2:57 pm:

    ===the heart attack===

    I did not have a heart attack. I had bypass surgery before that could happen. But I’m fine, thanks for asking.


  4. - Yellow Dog Democrat - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 3:08 pm:

    Got my third shot yesterday, six months and three days after my second dose. I am feeling mildly under the weather today, but not nearly as bad as round 1. On the other-hand, my animus toward those walking around the grocery story with masks on their chin declined almost instantly, so I think overall the trade-off for my blood pressure is already a big win.

    My anger is being replaced by pity.

    Also: Cardinals 16 wins in a row, how about them apples?


  5. - This is ridiculous - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 3:14 pm:

    Don’t like this weather. I miss cool fall days. It seems like it goes directly from hot summer to dead of winter now with no spring or fall in between.


  6. - ArchPundit - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 3:21 pm:

    Pretty good. Having sinus issues due to allergies, but generally beautiful weather. Feeling weird being an empty nester still. Fortunately daughter #2 lost her phone which just makes it feel like nothing has changed. ;)


  7. - Pot calling kettle - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 3:27 pm:

    What a long, strange trip…

    I’d wouldn’t mind getting a third shot, but I’m waiting for the Moderna to be approved. I got my flu shot last week; pneumonia and shingles shots are on the list for sometime soon.

    I am fighting pandemic fatigue; I’m so ready to move on. Unfortunately, the virus doesn’t care. Fortunately, I have some tasty edibles in the cupboard and the Grateful Dead streaming channel to treat the ennui.


  8. - Right Field - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 3:39 pm:

    Woke up today…. Still beats all the alternatives.

    The rest will take care of itself… over time.


  9. - levivotedforjudy - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 3:42 pm:

    I got my 1st Pfizer - nothing. I got my 2nd Pfizer - slept for 10 1/2 hours. I just recently got my booster - nothing. My take is the reason I slept so much from the 2nd wasn’t a side effect, it was relief. I feel great and even more relieved.


  10. - The Captain - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 3:42 pm:

    Been better.


  11. - Frank talks - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 3:45 pm:

    How about those White Sox? It’s taking away the dread of how bad the Bears are playing on offense right now. Sox scored more runs today than Bears. It’s brutal.


  12. - Consultant101 - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 3:48 pm:

    Health: Good
    Sanity: Good as long as I don’t read the news


  13. - Club J - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 3:49 pm:

    Getting by. Having a lot of anxiety over all this COVID carelessness by some people. I don’t understand how people can walk through life in such denial of the science while making up excuses to not be vaccinated. I just have to remember to worry about my circle and not worry about everyone else.

    Glad you are well Rich and thanks for taking the time to ask about all of us.


  14. - NorthsideNoMore - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 4:01 pm:

    What Pot Kettle said ….”Pandemic Fatigue” There is so much contradictory information where’s one out. I just want to get back to normal configurations in working & social life. But I do like working from home most days. So done with the city commute.


  15. - ChicagoBars - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 4:02 pm:

    Not as well as the White Sox, better than the Cubs, and wayyyy better than the Bears.


  16. - JoanP - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 4:19 pm:

    Health is good. Waiting on the okay for a Moderna booster, and then I’ll get it. In the meantime, I’ll be sure to get the flu shot.

    Like most of us, I’m pretty tired of the pandemic and all the precautions we need to take, but, nevertheless, I’m taking them. I enjoyed being out in the sun this weekend, listening to great jazz, having street food and adult beverages, but sitting near other folks, I still kept my mask on.


  17. - Amalia - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 4:20 pm:

    covid fine, blood pressure rising….Abreu gets hit AGAIN and benches clear. thinking of Jim Parque.


  18. - JS Mill - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 4:30 pm:

    Not great. Tired of being attacked by fools for doing the right thing.

    My physical health is good though.


  19. - RNUG - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 4:37 pm:

    Healthy enough. Usual fall allergies / sinus issues.


  20. - Pot calling kettle - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 4:41 pm:

    ==Not as well as the White Sox, better than the Cubs, and wayyyy better than the Bears.==

    Since sports are in the mix…the Blackhawks are practicing, and that always makes me feel better. (Let’s hope they have a “Sox” year.)


  21. - cermak_rd - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 4:44 pm:

    I’m OK. Also a bit of pandemic fatigue, but the German elections have sustained me. I feel a great new joy at, instead of seeing a map of the US with red and blue, seeing a semicircle fill up with red, black, green, yellow, purple, blue. Now the (probably slow) negotiations start happening between various parties to see who can form a majority. And unfortunately the Dutch have already held their elections for 2021. The Swedes, on the other hand are up in 2022, so maybe I can start watching some intraparty conflict. Though my Swedish is very bad compared to the German and Dutch. A matter of needing subtitles (Swedish at least) to have a prayer of understanding anything at all. At least I can describe the obsession as education. To make it socially acceptable.


  22. - Cheryl44 - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 4:45 pm:

    Like RNUG, my normal fall allergies. I do think wearing a mask mitigates some of it. Otherwise, binge watching Midsommer Murders and getting ready for Open House Chicago.


  23. - Huh? - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 5:02 pm:

    “bypass surgery”

    I knew it was heart related. Glad you are doing well.


  24. - Nick Name - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 5:16 pm:

    Hanging in there.


  25. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 5:38 pm:

    Mental health is the worry these days, physical health is the best it’s been in a “while”… due to worry.


  26. - filmmaker prof - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 6:05 pm:

    Just got hit with shot #3 a couple of hours ago.


  27. - Grandson of Man - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 6:27 pm:

    “Fortunately, I have some tasty edibles “

    I’m telling you. That and great music really help, also very pleasant early fall weather. Came across a lovely old tune, “Bad Time” by Grand Funk. Hadn’t heard it in years. Lovely song.


  28. - Quizzical - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 6:42 pm:

    Good, I was a little coughy and tired, so I took a home COVID test, which was negative. We didn’t have any at home, but now I think we’ll keep some around for future peace of mind.


  29. - Lt Guv - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 7:01 pm:

    Rich, did you go to see the Stones last night?


  30. - Blue Dog - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 7:18 pm:

    Feeling old but that comes with the age. Will get booster after all first responders , healthcare workers, teachers have had a chance to get theirs. Their lives are more important than mine.


  31. - SubRosa - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 7:23 pm:

    Anxiety so rocksteady I almost don’t even notice it anymore.


  32. - Independent - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 7:46 pm:

    Had been slowly recovering from the nadir of last week’s breakthrough Covid infection. After this morning’s Regeneron shot I feel almost energetic. Hopefully it’s not just a placebo effect and it gets at what’s left in my lungs.


  33. - Yeah Right - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 8:43 pm:

    Finer than frog hair


  34. - people caring loudly - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 9:03 pm:

    R Kelly’s FINALLY going to prison https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/r-kelly-is-found-guilty-on-all-counts-twenty-five-years-too-late


  35. - M Python - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 9:44 pm:

    Personally, I am doing fine. A shock the other day, tho, when I learned that a friend I’ve known for 40 years passed from Covid. UnVaxxed, and passed it onto a unvaxxed son. Please get your vax and wear your mask!


  36. - Da Big Bad Wolf - Tuesday, Sep 28, 21 @ 6:09 am:

    My dog died. Life seems pointless right now.
    In a perfect world dogs would live fifty years. We all know this isn’t a perfect world.


  37. - Pacman - Tuesday, Sep 28, 21 @ 6:37 am:

    Got cabin fever, haven’t been doing much. Covid is running wild here in the Southeast U.S.


  38. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Tuesday, Sep 28, 21 @ 8:12 am:

    I now have my appointment for my Pfizer booster shot for sometime next week at the Sangamon county health department. Lots of slots open if you’re eligible.


  39. - Observation - Tuesday, Sep 28, 21 @ 9:03 am:

    - My dog died. Life seems pointless right now.-

    I am so sorry for your loss. Our pets are often our lifelines. My heart is breaking for you.


  40. - cermak_rd - Tuesday, Sep 28, 21 @ 9:08 am:

    Da Big Bad Wolf,

    I am so sorry for your loss. Our pets are members of our families and the loss leaves such a hole.


  41. - Manchester - Tuesday, Sep 28, 21 @ 9:12 am:

    I’m doing well Rich, thanks for asking. Like a lot of other people, my physical health is good but also have pandemic fatigue. The current state of our national politics also has me concerned. Who would have thought, IL almost seems sane in comparison.


  42. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Tuesday, Sep 28, 21 @ 9:16 am:

    I did almost lose my sanity on the commute home from work late yesterday afternoon. None of the IDOT work zone and construction pages mention it, but the left 2 lanes at the Lake Springfield bridge on I-55 were closed for construction yesterday afternoon, but nothing was being done at that time. 55 was backed up all the way to the 6th Street exit and 72. The closures contributed to additional tieups on Woodside Road between Toronto Road and Iron Bridge, and Route 4 southbound into Chatham. Likely more of the same today. Would help if IDOT had more information on this closure on any of their websites. Including how long the construction will last and what project is required.


  43. - bkhartbnjo - Tuesday, Sep 28, 21 @ 9:23 am:

    Doing pretty well overall, quite well health-wise. Got to camp and play music with a bunch of friends over the weekend, got my flu shot yesterday and looking forward to being eligible for the booster in a few weeks. Even more, looking forward to a move to retirement. Last day of work in 80 days, not that I’m counting.


  44. - Amalia - Tuesday, Sep 28, 21 @ 9:38 am:

    Da Big Bad Wolf, so sorry for the loss of your pal. they give such love. peace.


  45. - Da Big Bad Wolf - Tuesday, Sep 28, 21 @ 10:09 am:

    Thnx all.
