Thanks LP! (I was just teasing Taxy and Pac for not noticing, I really didn't tell anyone we were gone)

I too got the pneumonia shot because of my mom's compromised AI system--my dr. told me every 10 years. Curious why your doc does it every 3?

I am sensitive to formaldehyde. The vaccine can contain that. I've had an annual flu shot since 2003. I react the next day and feel like crap (achy, tired, touch sensitive)--I blame it on what else is in the vaccine because I am very drug and chemical sensitive. I also have fibromyalgia. I haven't had the flu since getting the vaccine, but I have experienced a "crappy" day or two following getting the vaccine where I've felt as if I have had the flu, but that is how I feel when the fibromyalgia flares up.

Just getting ready to head out to the Toronto Boat Show. Should be able to get a deal on some new fender lines and some wax.

Fender lines and wax? Surely you can think of something better to buy
That sounds as bad as me going to a gun show a few weeks ago and leaving with some parts cleaning brushes and a tin Mustang car sign

I just finished replacing a dead bolt lock. It had broken and would not turn anymore... locked of course I had to cut out the old one and get the new one keyed to match the others. At least it had stopped raining while I worked on it.

I think there are different types of pneumonia shots depending on your age. I should get one but I am leery of shots. I heard that over 65 you only have to get the shot once. I have had the flu once in my life, when I was a kid. I get very bad colds, but they are not the flu...no achy feeling and no fever. When I was working and they gave us a free flu shot I got it, but have not had it since retiring. A friend of my husband's developed Gillian Barre Syndrome from the flu shot a few years ago and he is is very bad shape. I will take my chances.

Here is a site I found regarding Pneumonia Shots.

Have to make a grocery run for fresh fruit. Shrek's limited diet is killing me.

Could you pick me up a bottle of V8 juice?

I wanted something different for snacks. So I asked Spike to pick me up some frozen egg rolls. Big Mistake! They taste gross! Mostly carrots. Now I like carrots. But not as the main filler in egg rolls. I should have specified that I wanted meat based ones. Knowing Spike, he got the least expensive ones. I ate one. Tried a second one. Couldn't even finish one half. And they are tiny. They are getting tossed out. To heck with the cost. Lesson learned. I think I will shred my head of cabbage and make me some cole slaw. I wonder if I could use the filling of the egg rolls in the cole slaw? Will give it a try on a small amount of the cabbage.
