Catfish knows that we are taking off again. He gives me eye as he watches us pack the suitcases and gather up the goodies to go.
I love seeing the kids and watching the youngsters play football, practice casting while dreaming of the big bass, and doing what teenagers do but I so dislike driving there. Weren’t we just there I say.
I guess the idea is to get in all the time we can before the winter sets in and travel becomes a crazy flurry of snow and ice. Remember I am a California Valley gal who got stuck in Nevada a couple of years ago for weeks. Two wheel drive truck would not no matter how hard persuaded make it off the property to the main road – it hates frozen sand as much as I.
This week getting up every morning and calling the flu shot info line payed off and I now have been officially stabbed with the needle. Checking the CDC website it became apparent that they were running low. As soon as the tape said I qualified (that can change in a few hours) I got my arse there. Since I had already received my regular shot the line for the H1N1 was short and moved quickly. I think we were lucky in a way that KRP was exposed at work because we have Tamiflu in the wait. Thank goodness neither of us needed it.
My friends have been busy teasing me because I was calling the number every morning and urging them to do the same are not so vocal now. All of a sudden with the numbers of the flu cases going up and the availability of the vaccines going down . …
Seriously, the flu in general is not a good thing for compromised peeps like me. While it is a personal choice to get the shots or not this winter is looking grim in the H1N1 area. Don’t assume that your government is going to take care of you. Some states pandemic plans triage guidelines contain clear cut language stating that folks with medical conditions will not be admitted to hospitals – nice thought eh? They already placed an EUA on Tamiflu, and Relenza and the vaccines. Hope you all take care.
Ok enough of that now – off to load the camera gear as KRP loaded everything else early this morning – and head off to pick her up from work and head off toward Nevada.
Our roommate is taking care of the dogs so they will be well spoiled with Frosty paws and other scooby snacks while we are gone.
