Other than a sore arm where I was given it and being a bit tire from getting up earlier than normal, no.

That’s  really good. I took the j and  j  shot..

That’s what my brother in law got, the side effects hit him pretty hard, but he’s also in his 20’s and it sounds like the reaction to the side effects may be worse based on how young the recipient it.  I ended up with chills the following night after dinner with my first shot then slept it off, so I’m hoping this one may be similar.

What pleased me today was that when I woke up, my arthritis was taking a break from the usual severe stiffness and pain. Before it could change it's mind, I skipped shaving and showering and went downstairs and worked on a few model kits, doing the small parts and details that I'd planned not to do. I got about three hours before old man arthritis kicked back in and stopped me. 

That's okay, at least I proved to myself that I could still do what I used to be able to do.

My oldest got his BS in Infomatics today......Bittersweet I'm an only child and my mom wanted grandchildren.  She would have loved every minute of the graduation ceremony but she passed unexpectedly of a stroke 12 years ago this Memorial Day weekend.

My youngest is a high school freshman next year so the wife and I will be doing this again in eight years.....hopefully just eight.

Not to mention the higher prices that seem to be getting out of hand that people are asking for shipping.   16 bucks to ship a 20 dollar model a couple states away ? I don't think so.

my wife is on customer support with the place she gets contacts, and she put it on speaker because every so often a rooster screams out from the telephone. I guess the customer service works/lives on a farm?

 

it freaks my cats out, its really funny

Found a good way to strip the peeling decals off my 5th wheel. Warm slightly with a heat gun and scrape them off with these plastic scraper blades. It gets the decal and 95% of the glue off. Gunwash on a rag will take the remainder off.

If you have any pets, please keep an eye on them around the nest! When the babies become "fledglings" they will leave the nest, but they won't be able to fly yet. They live on the ground for a while after they leave...... We have a nest of Mockingbirds in a tree by my front door that I worry about, as we have stray cats that hang out here in the complex......

We have cats but theu dont ever go out. I only ever see 1 cat outside, so hopefully it leaves them alone

Thanks guys.

It was purchased by my wife back in ‘05 as a “midlife crisis” cure. She gave me the option of her either having an affair, or buying the sports car.
 

I picked the sports car! 😁

Just a very small update on the baby birds in the nest on my apartment door. 

There are at least 3. They are constantly with their heads up look for food. Im just hoping the mother is taking good care of them. I have become attached to them

Good for you. I've experienced this a couple times, but not in the last few years for some reason. 

And now, what pleased me today: I just filed my federal and state taxes electronically for the first time. I used TurboTax, the free program, and it all went very smoothly. Took about 90 minutes, prolly about what it would have taken me to do on paper. If I use TurboTax again next year, that time should be cut in half or more (as I now have an account with them).

Turbo Tax will be much easier next year because it looks at all your last year filings and you're a step ahead that way. Just wish it could figure out a way for me to pay less taxes.

This pleased me and made me laugh. You think animals don't have a sense of humor? 

The comments underneath are pretty funny, too.
