For every report that says nay...there is another that says yeah....I only had the shots when I was required to when working in home health and hospitals....I think I've only had respiratory flu once since not taking shots...in the last 14 years. But for elderly folks with compromised immune systems it is still a good deal I believe.

Get better ANNIE, ya gotta get outta there.....

Thanks to all for the well wishes to my sweet one. You that have met her, know how lucky I am. We have been down many a road in our 15 years together, but this going full time is a whole new ball game. Lol.

Wow. We are so happy to be doing this - and it is so liberating. But it is work - time consuming - sometimes gut wrenching - sometimes fun - and really - really exciting. It's almost like going off to college or when I joined or left the Air Force. Putting one life behind you. Shooting toward an unknown and exciting life ahead. The big difference is we aren't wet behind the ears or broke. Heck we've only had Bonita 2 years. She hasn't had time to break us yet!! Well back to making progress...

R U an RV Mutant too?

About the flu....
I had live-virus shots in the Navy in the 70s. Got the flu mildly each time. I quit flu shots post Navy!
I got the flu at age 55. 10 days in bed. Afraid I would die, and sometimes afraid I would NOT die.
The shots are now dead-virus. Nasal inhaler is live-virus.
Have had dead-virus flu shots since with no problem. I may not live thru the flu the next time.
Remember Steve's episode last year? 😳😬
Everyone makes a choice.

This year is flu shot and shingles shot.
I have seen enough older folks suffer horribly from shingles, some more than once.
Ever had the mumps?

Chickenpox for shingle -
Had mumps on right side only. Had measles.

Took a lot of things in the late 60's - not sure but think I may have smoked some shingles once.

My Grands called them Chicken Pops.
As kids we waited for every disease: time off school!!! We had ALLLLL of the kid bugs!

Get well Annie! OHMMMMMmmmmsssssssszzzzzzz.

I've still got bandaids from the flu and shingles vaccinations I had installed in my upper arm this afternoon. I just spent a week with Mama watchin' her suffer with shingles. Thankfully y'all Ohmed her and now she's somewhat better, but shingles are persistent and painful little boogers. Dodge 'um if you can!

Hey, if you are one of the mutants who have one of my paintings, as my youngest son says "it is worth more now" just got notice of an acceptance into the 45th Annual Juried Exhibition of the Mid-Southern Watercolorists which will be at the Arkansas Arts Center, February 13, 2015 until April 12, 2015. This is my 7th time in my 11 years if painting.... I took the inspiration photo on the old Vegas strip.... Click image for larger version
