Good morning, everyone. :hello:

Today is Trash Day. My Mother asked me to put out her old Christmas tree for her, because her retirement community uses a private service that would charge her extra. The tree is in a big zippered sack. So in a few minutes I'm going to pull my car around, take what looks like a body bag from the trunk, and lean it up against the trash cans. If I don't check in tonight, you'll have a good idea why.

Then Chris and I tried to schedule appointments for vaccinations. The site went live at 11:00am. All appointments were booked by 11:05am. 😒 No, we didn't get one.
Wow. The COVID vaccines are more popular than the Beatles. :eek:

Do you have any grand plans for retirement? Or will your life be just like one of your long weekends? (and there's nothing wrong with that)
I guess it will be, because there will be writing, cartooning, photography, reading, DVDing...

Happy Thursday, all :hello:

Today I'll work on the Encyclopedia project and prep for classes. It's supposed to be warm-ish, so I may also sneak away to hit some golf balls. :golf:

Good morning!

The Board of Health had a wonderful set up for the vaccination. We spent more time waiting the 15 minutes after the injection, than it did to check in and receive the vaccine. This morning, my arm is only a little sore at the injection site. I received the Moderna vaccine. I have to back after 28 days for the second one. It will be the same process.

Afterwards, Lori and I had lunch in her car in the MetroPark. We believe the Dr. has no idea that his wife, Cruella, said my housemates have to get tested before I go back to work. I decided to just show up to work on Monday. :lol:

In the meantime, I made last minute plans to drop Brutus off at the sitter's, and go to my mom's for the next couple of days. My mom is working today and tomorrow, so I will leave whenever I am packed and ready. I plan to take my time and make a stop in Ashland, and in Lancaster on the way. Lori gave me some work to do, and I have the files to sort for the church , tomorrow. Coincidentally, my walking friend, Sue, and her husband are staying in a cabin in Hocking Hills, so I may meet up with them for a hike.

Might be Trash Day here, but considering that Monday was a holiday it might be put off till tomorrow. My aunt wants some things from the market so I might have to pop off to there later as well.

I just saw a thing on CNN that 85% could be vaccinated by Fall. That might be a bit optimistic.

Good morning!

I believe some hiking will be on the agenda for today. Yesterday, I made a stop in Ashland for lunch, and at Grandpa's Cheese Barn. In Lancaster, I spent 1 1/2 hours at the Old Shoe Factory. It is my favorite antique store.

Good morning! :hello:

Missed yesterday. Sorry. :(

Ok. What did I do yesterday? Hmmmm. Don't remember. But so far today, I've been to the drug store to pick up a prescription and I stopped for gas on the way home.

Chris and her husband did get their vaccinations yesterday. They went down to the church in Mt Dora and got in line. They were there for 5 hours. I'm going to try that Tuesday, as they are only doing not Tues thru Thurs. I was told to bring a good book, snacks and water. :lol: And a full tank of gas to be safe.

There are more things I could do today, but for now I'm crocheting.

Hope you all have a good day. :thumbsup:

we managed our hike - hope you get yours in too Cayls. we were mostly on the roads as its so muddy on the tacks - but we walked down to the beach and around in a loop - fresh air and good company, if no wildlife much. we did come across a couple of washed-up crabs, though.
