Weekly Ephemera #70

 We are less than a week from our Rome trip and things are getting real.

  • Yesterday we went to the Wife's Nieces place to celebrate the birthday of their one year old.   Lots of kids ... lots of chaos ... lots of fun.  Happy Birthday!
  • I walked three times this week.  I would have walked four times but the weather got in the way on Friday.  The three walks I did do were fairly long totalling 25.6 miles (41.2 km).  I even did my first hike over ten miles since our Camino section in May.  That ten miles wore the heck out of me.  The spotty  rain on Friday probably saved me by giving me a day of rest.
  • I started the paperwork for our Vietnam Visa.  I have come to the conclusion that about 80% of all online forms are confusing and ambiguous.  The Vietnam Visa website would fail to display buttons or refuse to download PDF versions of the forms.  It took multiple tries to get our application forms completed with, I assume, the proper information.
  • While filling out the Visa paperwork I have come to the conclusion the next time I see my doctor I should ask about an anti-anxiety treatment.  I get spun up way too easily and it is getting harder for me to just relax.
  • Continuing on the health front I got my Flu shot yesterday.  I was hoping to get my COVID booster but Sam's Club didn't have them yet.  Hopefully I will be able to get it before we leave for southeast asia.
  • My new junk TV show is "UFO", a British show that aired for one season in 1970-71.  It's trippy and a bit psychedelic.
