If lucky, after your hungry horde found it, that would most likely be about the same amount you would get if I gave you the recipe.

In the past we bought them from a local pie shop. They kept getting more expensive, the filling layer smaller and the meringue taller. I think maybe they got a little greedy as the pies don't cost that much to make.

The boss did not even give me time to add the meringue to this one which was okay with me. Her birthday, her choice.

Too much doctor stuff this week - shingles vaccination today (first of 2 shots needed) and sore arm. But, it's good for 10 years. Consult with my family dr tomorrow on other things.

Next week? Hopefully nothing medically related.

I missed the memo on the 10 year limit for the vaccination thought it should be long enough.

Looks like I have 2.5 nice days to get the pond work done or at a minimum well advanced.

Re the "10 years" - the newest vaccine is called Shingrix. It's taken in two doses, 2-6 months apart. It's that protocol that will give those who are 50 to 70 years of age, 10 years protection with 97% effectiveness in preventing Shingles, which is what I was fixed on.

There is another vaccine that is less costly, and I think it's just one dose, but as far as the doctor advises, it works for up to 5 years and is only 51% effective in preventing Shingles.

The decision was an easy one on which protocol to follow.

I hope I need a third and fourth dose or even the next version.

I was a bit surprised to learn that a previous case does not confer immunity. That puts this in a class of its own.

Best talk to your doctor to get the best advice.

Really cool, but sunny day today. I think maybe today I'll actually get most, if not all the outside things wrapped up for the winter.

I got out all right, beautiful Fall day, not so enjoyable at the bottom of the fish pond. A lot like cleaning a septic tank with your hands.

I knew those water lilys had escaped their pots. I did not dream that they had formed and entire mass all around the bottom of the pond. The rhizomes captured the dead leaves, tree leaves and anything else that fell into the pond all of which decayed and turned to muck. Water lily heaven; a self perpetuating mess.

Don't think we will be able to finish it tomorrow so I hope any rain comes late on Monday.

Trying to sell a range hood chimney. Used it for 6 years, and replaced it with something quieter and better at catching the steam and smells from cooking. Now, the contractor that took the old one down, and installed the new one, put the old one in a box. I don't have the install guide, nor the manual, and as well I have to hope all the parts are there. I am not good with selling used stuff - until I see the "green".

Update: Sold it!

I didn't even get a commission. All the $$ went to the boss!

I hate when stuff sells quickly. Makes me think I priced it to cheap. Then I have to reason with myself that I got what I thought it was worth or not worth to me.

Run on down and get mucky this afternoon. I could use a worker.

It sold at a little more than 1/10th the original cost. Sounds kind of low, but mind you, it was used for 6 years.

No muck - I stay out of the muck!

Playing my final round of golf today and taking my clubs home for the winter. Sad day.

And I was counting on you!

I probably will not be able to walk tomorrow but the bulk of the muck is out of the pond. I think I saw a few lily root hiding down there so I need to clear them but Monday is an off day.

You will should have come as we harvested about 18 golf balls and I am pretty sure there are a few more hiding down there.

Wait - I don't recall you saying that you back-on to a golf course. How close are you to the fairway?

For 20 years the fairway was literally just across the cart path from my backyard. Actually for the first 6 years a portion of the cart path was in the corner of my backyard until they moved.

The course folded and the 7 HOAs pooled our resources and bought the land to maintain it as greenspace and prevent condos in our backyards. I've actually enjoyed not having to wear a hard hat when I mow the lawn as this fairway is somewhat hourglass shaped and we were at the narrow point. I replaced more windows in 20 years than I had in my lifetime.

Sounds similar to relatives of mine who just sold their place in AZ. The golf course, which backed on to their property (separated by a berm and about 30 yards of brush, was either sold or taken over by the city/municipality (not sure what it's called there) and it looks like it could go a couple of ways. Either it will go back to being a golf course, become a green space, or redeveloped with condos. I really can't say which way it'll go as I'll be spending some time north of their old house, in a different city, but I think the consensus down there was to try and get back to golfing.

The bank that foreclosed on this course tried for 18 months to find someone stupid enough to take it over and failed. The demographics aren't there. Golf playing is on the decline and small suburban course like this one are failing all across the country.

As AZ is a retirement state your relatives may have better fortune.

They sold because they were getting info from somewhere (I could guess where it was coming from, but wouldn't want to state that here) there would be a US recession, and wouldn't be able to sell their place in another 5 years when they figured they'd be too old for the traveling back and forth.

At least that's my opinion. Hard to tell when some people (relatives, that is) think they've got their finger on the pulse, and are so secretive when it comes to their sources. :shrug:

While the general public is completely unaware of it my opinion the US recession has already begun. I can quote you no sources of proof other than about 40 aware years of watching what is going on. The official confirmation will not come until about about Feb - March of next year and by that time it will be ending.

You can call me out on that if I am wrong. I would love to be wrong.
