Well, we’ve been done. At 3.12 pm on Sunday after noon last to be precise – at the old Kirkcudbright hospital building. All us Oldies are being done first, and we saw our neighbour leave home just before us, and whilst there our other neighbours turned up as well. When we had been “done” we were asked to wait 15 minutes to see if we collapsed One commented to us as we sat in the waiting area that we had seen more of each other that afternoon than in the last 18 months – true. We had this year’s flu vaccine (left arm) plus a Covid booster of the Pfizer vaccine on the right. No side effects to date nearly 48 hours later.

A reminder from John Ruskin, . . .
“There is no wealth but life. Life, including all its powers of love, of joy, and of admiration. That country is the richest which nourishes the greatest numbers of noble and happy human beings; that man is richest, who, having perfected the functions of his own life to the utmost, has also the widest helpful influence, both personal, and by means of his possessions, over the lives of others.”
From “Unto this Last”, 1860.
