You had me with "the swamp".... looking it up....

 

Dr. Google says it's "Gainesville" ??? Not even near the water??😢

 

LOL...sorry...goofy joke on where I live.  I like to list I am near Port Canaveral, as my closest home port.  We used to live only 5 miles away (for 20 years) in Merritt Island.  From my house we could even hear the ships horns as they left.  Then...doing the "retiree downsize" we moved out here about 20 miles north and west of there.  It's a gated community, that is very RV friendly.  We have a huge RV port attached to our house, as do many others.  That keeps the land yacht under cover.  

 

We boarder the St. John's water management area, and the St. Johns river. Which is the only one of two rivers in the U.S. that runs south to north (Oregon being the other).  Comes out at Jacksonville Florida.  Very swampy out there, and in fact can get wet feet if we walk too far into the woods behind our house.  Have had alligators walk through our back yard.  😮  

 

When they talk about the Swamp of Gainesville...it's the college.  Bucky graduated from there.  The Gators are their sports team.  😉

Enjoy the sea air, G + P -- and the view is good for the soul.

 

I admire your faithfully going to church... and McDonald's 😁 every Sunday. That's also food for the soul, in more ways than one 🌷

Thanks Dani.

Our church is on my Avatar.

Paulines late mam and dad and Pauline and I got married here.

Both Pauline's mam and dad's funeral service was held here too.

So, DW, a RN, got her Shot Friday morning.  Her arm hurt Friday.  She slept horribly running a low grade fever Friday night.  Fever broke after she took an Advil.  Yesterday she was cranky and didn’t feel great.  Took a long nap.  We went to the country club with friends for dinner.  Got home had a nightcap.  She slept about 10 hours woke up today and feels like her normal self.  She had the Pfizer vaccine.

So much history and tradition.

 

For me, it's amazing to have so deep "roots" in one place, since, more or less, we're a country of immigrants, 72 years old only, and quite a lot of people left their memories in their original homeland....

 

I'll have to revisit Bucharest to see the synagogue where my late parents got married. Luckily, it was not destroyed by the war or by the Communist party....

Thanks for mentioning the Advil, with your DW being a RN.

 

Some said it's not recommended after the Pfizer vaccines, something along the lines of "lessening the efficacy/effectiveness [pick one...] of the vaccine".

 

We had our 2nd Pfizer jab 4 hours ago, and my arm is hurting. I was just looking through our medicine chest for an Advil "replacement" ...  Advil works great for me.

I just started making big pot of my sunday sauce using the last of my homegrown tomatoes that I canned this past September.  Boy, they went fast with all this home cooking.  They usually last until the Spring.

I got my Burpee catalog in the mail yesterday and going to start planning and ordering seeds, etc for my garden this year.  Last spring I had a lot of problems with local garden centers not having exactly what I wanted due to covid so this year I am going to order early.

Great news you have had your second vaccine jab.

Hopefully your arm stops hurting soon.

My sister had Pfizer as well.  Was sick for two days, flu like symptoms.  Got her second shot last week,  and had some of the same side effects...but nearly as bad.  Hope your DW suffers less on second shot as well.

I will miss growing tomatoes this summer.  We usually do them outside of the "Land Yacht" in pots where we winter in Maine.  Last year, we didn't go up, but I had six huge tomato plants in the courtyard here in our house in Florida.  This year...not taking the motor home up.  Going to rent houses...so much for my little garden. 😞 

 

Oh well...lots of farmers markets around there in the summer.  🙂

Oh my, exactly what I do here. I have made tons of sauce from my homegrown tomatoes. And the Burpee catalogue-A treasure to read to lift the spirits these cold, snowy winter days.

We are having my last container of sauce today.  I freeze enough for quite a few meals and this is the end of the line.  Now I have to get the energy to make a new batch.  I miss when I was young, lived at home and the sauce magically appeared.

The wind last night made it feel brutal outside. To make matters worse, I should have been in Ft Lauderdale and aboard Oasis right now moving into my cabin.

Whenever I am in Italy I try to visit the church that my grandparents got married in. My first time, as a young boy, that my grandmother and I were together in Italy she was so happy to show it to me as well as the house that she was born in.
