Jackie has two band-aids, having gotten both a flu shot and an RSV shot. (Covid shot delayed another couple of months, since she had Covid in August.) In the foreground, Ashley is showing proper care. #dogsofmastodon #vaccinesofmastodon
To celebrate the equinox (actually because our dog is spending the day at Canine Academy) we’ve come to Seven Saints for lunch. I’ve got a Voodoo Ranger, while Jackie is drinking a Starcut Squishy cider.
“To take the dog for a walk safely, you have to pay attention to the dog, and to the surroundings—people, squirrels, other dogs… It’s a lot like multitasking.”Jackie
At the Islander Bar and Grill in the Miami airport. Jackie has a Prison hazy IPA. I have a Hollywood Brewery Roadhead, which I think was described as a session IPA. #beersofmastodon
The brats are “Sheboygan” brats, which according to the woman at Olde Time Meats are the same as regular brats except they have more black pepper. The skewers vary slightly: Mine has an extra purple onion; Jackie’s has an extra yellow pepper.
As long as I’ve been using a Pixel phone (I’m on my third), Google has been alerting me to make “canvas” prints. But the alert always led to a blank screen.
A couple of days ago I thought, “You know, I don’t need them to pick which photo to print; I can just print one I like!”
National Weather Service: “Destructive 80 mph winds.”
Jackie, wanting to be clear: “Not the constructive kind.”
Yesterday was Jackie’s birthday, and she and Ashley came to my Esperanto meeting. Jackie and I had beers (the Hazy U of IPA), but poor Ashley had to make due with water. (And some of Tony’s potato chips.) #dogsofmastodon
Me, responding to Jackie (asking if I want her to close the house up): “Don’t do anything on my account. Do whatever makes sense to you. Or, if nothing makes sense to you… be confused.”
