Eating my first hamburger in about three years. Today, I went into a store (Bi-Mart) for the first time in one year. I was so excited I couldn't think of anything useful to buy. I chatted with another lady about my age who was thrilled that she had gotten her first salon haircut in over a year. Hooray for vaccines!

I've just read about it. That means it is on the way to us. Right now it's in Michigan. The UK variant, I believe. Next will be the Brazilian variant - or was it the South African?

I would dare to state that Mickey Mouse variant is next.

So you've already been vaccinated?

But be careful! "Objects in mirror are closer than they appear!" :-)

Yes - haha! Thanks for the reminder. I am still careful even after the 2-week quarantine period.

Well done Diane! I've had my two now and it feels good!
The burger must have tasted extra good ;-))

Hah - well, it was kind of awful, ruined by that icky American processed cheese which melts into a gluey substance. I don't remember it being that awful - maybe they are using another brand made of actual glue! But, the bacon was delicious, thank goodness I ordered a "Bacon Burger."

Every morning, when I look into the mirror (mostly it's the only time a day, I do so), I am looking into past. I had my last haircut in October last year - meanwhile it seems I was jumping out of a timemachine. From the 80's straight to 2021 ... I had my first vaccine, and a burger the other day, too. But no haircut yet. :-)
And, I am afraid, I lost my abillity for shopping - what I won't complain about.

Your picture, by the way, is great ... and yummy a bit, too.

Thank you, Leon! I know what you mean about the time machine feeling. I finally cut my hair myself, which I used to do for many years until my eyesight got bad. It got so bad I did not care how terrible it looked after cutting, so I went snip-whack-snip-whack. Very short, but somewhat presentable.

In my time machine I also see my mother, sometimes my grandfather, but it has nothing to do with Covid-19. ;-)

We used to have a Bi-Mart card-- ;)

When I went there I didn't even have to dig for my card. The door and the gate were wide open and I was given a big welcome. I guess they're thrilled to see more than a few customers again!

Heureux pour vous Diane.Ici, nous sommes encore confinés.(en principe jusqu'à fin Avril) Les vaccins se font mais trop lentement selon moi. L'organisation semble cohérente maintenant mais les vaccins ne sont pas toujours disponibles.Pour ma part, j'ai eu ma 1er injection, j'attends la 2eme. Les personnes de plus de 55 ans sont tous vaccinés, je pense (Ceux qui l'ont souhaité) ainsi que les professions à risque. Pour les plus jeunes je suppose qu'il faudra attendre la fin de l'été pour que ce soit terminé. Moi, ce qui me manque le plus, c'est d'aller au cinéma (avant de manger le hamburger ou l'équivalent) J'aime beaucoup votre photo. Bon Dimanche à vous. jean Paul

There is some discussion here about sharing our vaccine with our friends who are having a shortage. Ontario is having a terrible crisis and that will surely spread to other Canadian provinces. Oregon and other US states had a disorganized and slow start, too, now we are down to just the people who are refusing to be vaccinated. I hope they change their minds, because if they don't this virus will never die out. It will just keep mutating. I worry about the world's hospital workers, who are under such awful stress. They could simply start giving up and leave their jobs.

I am happy to have my vaccines and will definitely get as many as recommended by scientists!

Jean Paul, you are French. You will certainly have better food than a hamburger, eh? Haha!

... nicely worked contrast between the colored and B&W parts ... and just an attractive perspective ...

two weeks past my 2nd vaxx, so I guess I've got full complement of antibodies: therefore been hugging my kids and grandsons for first time in 13 months ... actually went into grocery store too, instead of delivery (remarkable nowadays that situation is even worthy of a comment) ... no commercial burgers yet tho' ...

I am finding that I have a sort of residual fear of public places, something I read about not long ago. Not quite agoraphobia, but I don't exactly seek it out, either. I don't quite trust my teenaged grandchildren enough to hug them, yet, but I sit on the couch with them. My grandson is supposed to get his soon, as he's 17. I believe my granddaughter is also eligible, she's 14. (Yes, weird times in every way!) Thanks very much, Wally!
