    I wonder what happened to the combined Covid/flu shot Moderna had a couple years ago. I was hoping it would be around by now.

    The fox is curled up on the back lawn, basking in the early autumn sunshine AND I found a shrew in the garden earlier. That's the first time I've seen a shrew "in the wild".

    Be careful with shrews, they have venom and their bites are painful.
    I spent a day mostly lazing about the house snacking and reading.

    Thanks for the information. I wasn't aware of that...not that I am in the habit of poking at the animals in the back garden...

    My mother and I went shopping at the Bazaar at her care home yesterday. Neither of us found anything we wanted to buy, but it was fun to shop together.

    This morning, I found four jobs that I felt comfortable applying for.

    I got my COVID shot today. I thought I’d have to wait a while!

    That reminds me to get a flu shot soon.

    Went to the farmers' market today and the new season apples are here! Got some Newton Windsors, Adam's Pearmains and an orange pippin whose full name I can't remember... Guy says he'll have Hereford Russets next month.

    So nice to have REAL apples instead of the crisp, sweet but otherwise tasteless offerings of the supermarkets.

    I went to a work conference this week, and it was held in a refurbished, but very old building. I saw a mouse and the way it ran about made me smile. Those with rodent phobia have my sympathy, of course, but because I don't, I get to enjoy them. Thankfully the organizers managed to shoo it out of the room.

    Woke to a crisp, clear, beautiful fall morning.
    Thinking about inviting the World Leader GoofBalls to come sit on my porch and talk it out. Maybe then they can join this Thread. :hugegrin:

    Beautiful day in Tennessee. Walked the dog to a cool morning. Heading out with the wife to go to garden nurseries to buy grass seed and pansies. :cool:

    I'm jealous, I don't think there's any way we could apples that fresh anywhere here in Az.

    Went to Target to buy a couple items that the website said were in stock. One was a mislabel and not what they actually had, the other I couldn't find. Left empty handed. But what I couldn't find was unhealthy candy, so maybe that's a good thing?

    It was so chilly this morning that I got some work done outside and played with the neighbors' cats without being eaten alive by mosquitos for once.

    I found out that my store director, who hated my guts and did everything he could to make me miserable, was transferred. Against his will. :beer: :techman:

    Serves him right, the Nazi bastard.

    I played my DVDs for EXORCIST 2 and 3 at my neighbor's house and she totally enjoyed them both. What are the odds?
