Jerod and Johnny saying goodbye to a very difficult 2021
Saying Goodbye to 2021

It is hard to believe that the year is about to come to a close. We had every hope for 2021 at the start. This was supposed to be the year we left our medical grade masks, cheap slimy hand sanitizer, and disaster of a home office behind. In the end, we reflect on the fact that COVID-19 remains a reality along with its impact on our professional and personal lives. We are officially saying, “Goodbye” to 2021. Good riddance!
