@BillW,
I buy some black walnuts already shelled on occasion. They make a good variation from time to time.

The person I wrote of that died of Covid a few days ago knew he had it and knew he was very sick, in my opinion. His wife and her sister had it too. But he had to break his leg before he would seek medical help. The day before he died he removed the stuff the doctors put on him and tried to get up and go home. I think he believed he would survive at home but would die of the treatment. How he would get out out of there on one leg probably didn't seem relevant.

I knew it would happen sooner or later. Disney now has the Beatles.

@edgarblythe,
I got mine today as well. First time with the Pfizer, before I had the astra zenecka, feeling a bit woozy with a sore arm.

@izzythepush,
I had Pfizer only. Felt sore in the arm the first times. With the booster today I feel no different than before the shot.

@edgarblythe,
My third Pfizer shot was in early October. I feel the same each time… as in no side effects. Minor arm soreness which was no difference from any other **** I’ve had.

@Ragman,
Happy Thanksgiving.
If they decide to make the boosters a regular thing I may opt out.

@edgarblythe,
I wonder if this virus and all its mutations will ever be completely dealt with. It may be here to stay. Darwinism.

Looks like we may be stuck with it the rest of my time on the planet.

@edgarblythe,
Yep. But regardless of what countries decide to do, mandates, masks or not, if we are smart we'll not get infected. You won't see me at a protest or nightclub or sports arena. I wonder what Black Friday crowds look like.

@Mame,
I still wear a mask and limit my activity. Still sanitize, etc.

There are plenty of websites with articles maintaining that control to submission of Indians was not the cause of the near annihilation of the buffalo. While the majority of dead buffalo may not have been caused by that, it still was a prime objective, no matter what those articles tell us. - edgarblythe

It was near the end of September, an unusually warm week in 1871, and William “Buffalo Bill” Cody and a group of wealthy New Yorkers stood atop a grassy hill near the Platte River in Nebraska, where, two miles off, they spotted six huge brown beasts.

Cody was a legend of the frontier era, part myth conjured in dime novels. The men from New York had expected to find him as a “desperado of the West, bristling with knives and pistols,” but they did not. Cody was loquacious and friendly, an expert hunter. He knew that with the wind blowing from behind, the men risked their scent being carried to the animals and scaring them away. Then again, a buffalo is a lumbering, hirsute cow, and the men were outfitted with some of the quickest horses and held the best guns owned by the United States Army, which was outfitting the hunting expedition. The Army wasn’t in the business of guiding hunting trips for soft-skinned Wall Streeters, but it was in the business of controlling the Native Americans in the area, and that meant killing buffalo. One colonel, four years earlier, had told a wealthy hunter who felt a shiver of guilt after he shot 30 bulls in one trip: “Kill every buffalo you can! Every buffalo dead is an Indian gone.”

I watched a TV production of The Miracle on 34TH Street this morning. I thought it was going to be the one where Natalie Wood is the little girl. Instead, it was a girl I didn't recognize. Kris Kringle had a face I couldn't recognize. I told myself at one point, This is a role Thomas Mitchell could have played. It was Thomas Mitchell. They didn't have time to flesh out the story the way the movies did, but I enjoyed it anyway. I'm a sucker for good Christmas stories.

@edgarblythe,
Richard Attenborough played KK. Elizabeth Perkins played the little girl. RA was in the Jurassic Park movie.

I believe that Natalie Wood was like 8 or 9 years old in the original on 34th street.

Yes. It took me by surprise on Roku this morning. It's shortened enough that much of the good stuff was passed over.

The booster shot never did make me uncomfortable, but I did have a nice nap during the day. I've been reading about the new variation. I hope it doesn't prove to be bad news for the vaccinated.
