GET YOUR FLU SHOT

Today’s blog will be short. I have early morning tests at the hospital.

Get your flu shot! Those who fail to do so are crazy. My history proves it.

I have been getting a flu shot for 16 years. No flu! Prior thereto, the flu hit me hard 2-3 times a year. Especially a couple of days after a flight to Key West or flight home. Plane air systems efficiently spread the bug.

The only strange thing about the flu shot occurred this year. For the firs time, I received the shot at a drug store. CVS. My doctor was not doing them anymore.

I felt sort of undressed as I got the shot. Sitting on a chair in the openness of the store itself. Everyone could see. Bothered me for some reason.

This morning’s Key West Citizen has a special section devoted to the Fantasy Fest Parade. Many pics. Excellent!

Mention is made below a photo on page 1 to the effect that “tens of thousands” viewed the parade. Still waiting for a number.

Some comments I picked up on. Parade better this year. Parade not as good as previous years. Fewer people. Streets not jammed tight. Walkable. Parade moved faster. Floats kept moving along. No big gaps between floats. Much less nudity than in previous years.

The Masquerade Parade was voted the Best Event of Fantasy Fest 2017. Deservedly so! I saw parts of it. Thousands of people. All costume attired.

Parrot Heads in town this week. Happy Jimmy Buffet followers.

Party time yesterday afternoon. At Kevin and Holly’s home on White Street. A good time! Sat around the pool and chatted. Food and drink excellent! Company the best!

Paul Manafort and one time partner Rick Gates first to be indicted by Special Counsel Mueller. Announced this morning. A 12 count indictment primarily concerning money laundering and income tax evasion.

I may be wrong. I am listening to the TV in another room as I write this morning. My sense is Manafort has agreed to plead guilty to certain charge(s). The guilty plea may be made today.

Enjoy your day!

  1. Louis,

    “I felt sort of undressed as I got the shot”.

    I can see why you would feel that way, in CVS, with your pants around your ankles as they injected flu vaccine into your butt. But, hey, it’s Key West…and Fantasy Fest week to boot.

    Haha.

  2. Are you sure you were you at CVS? The one on Duval, maybe? Were they doing them outside the store at the time, during the parade?

  3. Well, its Key West. Drop your drawers and bend over, you never what kind of ‘shot’ you’ll get ! Just saying. [ smiley face]
