No, I’m not talking about that girl everyone knew in high school. I’m talking about our trip to the Volusia County Fairgrounds yesterday to get the Covid-19 antibody test. We arrived at about 2 P.M. and were in and out in about a half-hour. No lines, no waiting, no problem. It would have taken us […]
