Getting flu shots. A shed extension. October birthday bash.

Elaine getting shot

Walgreen’s sponsored a flu shot clinic here at Royal Palm today. They provided flu shots to residents at no co-pay cost; all we had to do was show up and bring our ID and insurance card. We just needed a minimum of 25 to keep it free. Elaine does not like needles, however. She shielded her eyes while I got my shot and then Annie Wallace had fun with her by offering to hold her while she got hers. It was a fun scene, as you can see in the photo, and all those in the room got quite a charge from it! The lady administering the shots did not quite know what to make of it.

We are having an extension made to the back of our shed. It will be the full width of the shed and extend about 38 inches to the rear. That distance is designed to avoid being over the sewer main that crosses our yard. I wanted the extension to let us store things such as yard tools and seasonal items to free up room in the shed. Elaine’s Rescue Pantry needs more space and I need space for some of the things we moved out of the motorhome until we either use them or dispose of them.

Friends from Royal Palm at Babbo’s for the October Birthday Bash

This evening we went out to dinner at Babbo Italian Eatery on E Glendale Ave at N 16th St. Elaine and I have been there before. This time it was with a group of 22 folks from Royal Palm, to celebrate October birthdays. Only three of those attending have a birthday in October, but that doesn’t stop the rest of us from coming along! Any good excuse for a dinner out with friends.

My Mushroom, Pepperoni, and Sausage Calzone

Elaine had a Chicken Alfredo dish while I had the Mushroom, Pepperoni, and Sausage Calzone with Marina Sauce. The Calzone was excellent and I have three fourths of it at home now as leftovers. I must say that their calzones are impressive!
