Yet again I have to thank my new friend, Craigie, in Halifax, Yorkshire, for bringing this to my attention on Facebook. Thank you, again, Craigie. I have come to realize that she is even MORE of a ‘red poppy’ devotee than I — and that takes some doing.

St John’s, Slimbridge is in Gloucestershire, England. All of England is beautiful, Gloucestershire one of the nicest, most verdant parts.

Amazingly clever. Bravo. So evocative and spot on. I initially thought they were made out of clear plastic. I was wrong. Wire mesh. How brilliant.

And it works so, so well. I am humbled.

When I first saw the pictures it reminded me of the ‘Korean War Memorial’ in Washington, D.C. But, on reflection they are very different. I think the Slimbridge ghosts are so realistic. Wow.

I really am in awe.

Reflect, Remember & Revere.

I Got My ‘Old Man’, Over 65, ‘Fluzone High-Dose’ Flu Shot Today — At ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock’ In Concord.

Click to ENLARGE and skim through here. Google ‘Fluzone High-Dose’. This was from the U.S. CDC — who we hope know what they are talking about.

I used to be ultra-skeptical about flu shots — BUT that was when I was younger and fitter.

I nearly died, this time that year, in 2010! See below. WOW — 9-years ago, and I was at least 35 lbs heavier!

I started getting the flu shot the next winter.

I am still new to the old-man flu shot. This was but my 2nd year. I really don’t know. I can’t say I sail through each winter.

But, the deed is DONE. No one but no one can now complain and nag. I got my flu shot and I got the right old-man one.

Fingers crossed. YIKES.

2010 vs 2019.

It wasn’t much and I am NOT complaining. It was a dusting and what we had, technically, were intermittent squalls. Also nothing overnight as had been suggested. This was quite late. Around 10:30am.

I had gone and got two of my best snow shovels ready for the day. Didn’t need them.

Later in the afternoon ‘Home Depot’ called that my super-duper snow blower was delivered — ready for us to pick up. Will do so on Monday. Life will never be the same again. SMILE.
