I went to the grocery store this morning and got a flu shot. It sounds weird going to a grocery store for a shot but I don't have a family doctor anymore so I have to get my medical attention wherever it's available. I'm hoping this flu shot is more effective than last year's flu shot. I remember sitting in the Arctic Fox in Phoenix last winter, dreading going to Walmart to buy groceries for fear someone was going to cough on me.
I picked up my new living room chair at the furniture store this afternoon and I'm still in the process of assembling it, I never realized a chair could be broken down into this many pieces before. They said there was "some" assembly required but they failed to say it was "total" assembly required. The only thing I'm not having to do is upholsterer it.
Anticipating a large box with the chair in it I removed my Andersen hitch yesterday which was easy peasy. I had never removed it before so I wasn't sure if it was going to take some muscle, but it came right out and I set it in the back seat. I'll put it back in its place as soon as I work up some ambition.
Every day is starting to feel more and more like Fall. I'm having to sleep under a blanket now and turn on my heater for an hour so in the morning to take the chill off the room. But by early afternoon I'm opening up the trailer to cool it off, typical early Fall weather for Denver.
I packed away the camping gear with plans to leave it in my storage room for the winter, so it looks like my minivacations are over till next summer. I had fun with the minivacation concept and may expand it to work all year. I think temporarily getting away from the Arctic Fox and being able to travel freely without concern for road conditions and large places to camp is good for me and helps keep me on my toes. And even though I'm 72 now, I feel like if I can keep exploring, keep looking at new horizons, and walk out my door into a new place every now and then I can prolong my slow slide into geezerdom.
this is the current condition of my new easy chair. I'm hoping it will bring me many hours of sitting pleasure when and if I ever get it put together
