Alex Trebek

Today Alex Trebek has been gone for one year.  It seems less than that, like a few months ago.  Mom & Floyd would watch Jeopardy together, one of the few TV shows of late they watched together.  The producers have cycled through a few ‘guest hosts’ since his death, but no one has replaced him.

rat’s nest comm box

In investigating the crawl space under the house, F and I stopped to talk about the rat’s nest of wires and disused electrical junk that is (or was) our communications box.  Is this not the sloppiest bit of work you’ve seen?

happy birthday to me

It’s a dull, wet day outside.  I’m at home alone as FT. is gone to Saskatchewan on a road trip with a friend.  So far, the only person to send me birthday greetings is my cousin, SM. Thanks, cousin.

I’m off to a dollar store to buy some forks for work.  There seems to be a shortage of them.  “What did you do on your birthday?”  “I bought some forks.”

1st COVID shot

I bit the bullet.  I had my first COVID19 shot today.  I’d been dreading having it for several reasons, but I needn’t go into them now as everyone has already heard every reason / excuse under the sun to not have it.  But, in talking to a doctor at a pharmacy, who has seen COVID19 patients come in and (most times) go out, I’m convinced that it is likely a good thing to do.  Only time will tell the lasting effects of it.  mRNA medical technology has not been around long enough to know for sure.  Will we all get cancer from this?  Will it mutate and change our actual DNA?  Will it prove to be just another harmless vaccine like so many others?  But, compared to fighting for my life for a week in ICU only to die drowning in lung fluids, I’ll take my chances with the vaccine.  Thy will be done.
