    Doctor: "What's wrong?".
    Patient: "I've got the shingles".
    Doctor: "How long have you had them?".
    Patient: "This morning".
    Doctor: "I don't see them on you".
    Patient: "They're out in the truck for the new roof. Where do you
    want them??"
    <rs!> Reminds me: I think I'll have a refill due so should ask where I
    am on the Shingrex list -- nationwide backlog. Would prefer to not be wearing a thick sweater and shirt and try to roll up the sleeve!

    Our store now has the Shingrex available on a regular basis.... I asked
    someone at the pharmacy when I would hear about it, since I was on the
    waiting list.... I was told they scrapped the list, and just are
    servicing people as they show up and ask about it now... they get in new supplies every couple of weeks... and how much they get depends on how
    much they use, or something like that... So far, I still haven't taken
    the time to get mu\y shot... we've been on more of a tight schedule or
    not wanting to take extra time anyway, each time we've been there at the store... ;)

    Seriously, if one has had chicken pox (as I have), they have
    the shingles virus inside them (I've had the shot for it)...and
    it's both disfiguring and painful.
    I've definitely had Chicken Pox and the original vaccine. LIS in an earlier paragraph just waiting until my turn comes up for the new-and- improved vaccine as I don't want a Shingles episode.

    I've only had the chicken pox... years ago when I was in first grade...
    and there's a slight possibility that I've had a minor episode of the
    shingles in the past, as I seem to have what often is a leftover side
    effect of it.... So I do intend at some point to get the improved
    vaccine just in case....

    And here I thought it was just my laziness! <g> ...When the house is
    reshingled will probably have the shed done too: it's roof was done the
    same time as the house. (Is an ~8x10' outbuilding for the yard tools
    and a bit of storage.) I could do it but why? The roofers have the
    equipment and know-how. Probably would take me as long to shingle the
    shed as it would for them to do all the house - I don't have the
    experience.
    But, you apparently have the money for it...yet, we are lazy
    when it comes to paying high bills that we think are ridiculous.
    Some are a necessity: car, house.... Can't think of another general catagory right now.

    Health care....? <G>

    Nancy,

    I've only had the chicken pox... years ago when I was in first grade...

    I had my attack 40 years ago...and had the shingles virus shortly
    thereafter.

    It put me in the hospital for a week, and out of work at Burger King,
    and out of college for 2 months. It nearly went into encephalitis, and
    every part of my body (including the groin and buttocks) was covered
    with those itchy poxes. It was like I had been dropped into a vat of
    itching powder, and the lid was closed.

    Darn! I should have asked last week! Happened to be wearing a shirt
    with tha vest so would have been easy to 'get stabbed'. OTOH I too was running a bit of a tighter schedule; will try to remember to wear
    something similar so if they do have the same policy will be ready.

    Right: same reasoning here, except probably had in early elementary
    school and for-certain about 30 years ago. Good news is I haven't had a shingles episode, and don't think I want to experience!

    So, old for the chicken pox and young for the shingles...

    It put me in the hospital for a week, and out of work at Burger
    King, and out of college for 2 months. It nearly went into
    encephalitis, and every part of my body (including the groin and
    buttocks) was covered with those itchy poxes. It was like I had been dropped into a vat of itching powder, and the lid was closed.

    I had a poison ivy attack when I was in kindergarten that was a lot like
    that with the itching everywhere... taught me not to jump off big flat
    tree stumps into bushes... ;)

    I didn't ask where I was on the list -- (a) sort of supposed when it's
    my turn I'll be notified, (b) when I did ask it took a long time to find
    my name as that particular list didn't have a find function so had to be scanned by eye.

    And I dont' recall if you mentioned or already know but this vaccine is
    a two-parter: from what I read two to six months after the initial shot
    a second is given. No idea why the wide variance in when the second
    shot is given.

    Yes, probably every couple/few months.

    I was thinking along the same lines, though looking back didn't phrase

    And of course the word 'set' has something like 60 different

    It's like the object lesson where the teacher had 3 jars. In one,
    there was tobacco...a second jar, had alcohol...but nothing in the third
    jar. When she put the worms in each, the worms in the tobacco jar and

    Hi Daryl!


    Daryl just likes any opportunity to show off his bod! <gg>
    Yeah, I'm such a stud. <BG>
    2x4?!
    After all, Eight Is Enough. Hmmm...sounds like a good sitcom
    title. <G>

    But with twelve you get eggroll! (Think that's the title.)


    Like you have been through enough surgeries and examinations it's pretty
    much just "OK" and comply.
    Nurses do call the shots. :P

    <groan!>


    ... I drink too much. I gave a urine sample it had an olive in it.
    Pee-Quila!! :P
    Sure wish I remembered all the words to that song! <bseg>
    If it had been a worm, it would've been worse.

    And worms are probably worse than a tapeworm.


    It's like the object lesson where the teacher had 3 jars. In
    one, there was tobacco...a second jar, had alcohol...but nothing
    in the third jar. When she put the worms in each, the worms in
    the tobacco jar and alcohol jar, died.
    The teacher asked what that taught us, and Johnny said "If we
    smoke or drink, we won't have worms". <G>

    Makes sense to me!

    Our store now has the Shingrex available on a regular basis....
    <snip>
    And I saw your later message where you had asked, and apparently
    your store still has the waiting list... I forget, did you find
    out where you were on your list...? It seems a little surprising
    that the two pharmacies apparently were given different info...
    but maybe it's that the interpreted what the supplier told them
    differently... I still have to find the time to get mine.... :)
    I didn't ask where I was on the list -- (a) sort of supposed when it's
    my turn I'll be notified, (b) when I did ask it took a long time to
    find my name as that particular list didn't have a find function so had
    to be scanned by eye.
    Hopefully it'll be coming up soon then... I'd probably keep checking,
    though, just in case they scrap their list too... ;)
    Yes, probably every couple/few months.

    And I still haven't managed to get mine yet... other stuff seems to be
    more important at the moment...

    And I don't recall if you mentioned or already know but this vaccine
    is a two-parter: from what I read two to six months after the initial
    shot a second is given. No idea why the wide variance in when the
    second shot is given.
    Don't remember if I mentioned it before or not, but yes I knew that
    it's a two-parter.... that was part of why they weren't starting any
    new patients with it, what they had had to be saved for those that
    had already had the first dose.... The variance is probably just
    that it needs to wait for at least the 2 months, but needs to be
    given within the six to be effective....
    I was thinking along the same lines, though looking back didn't phrase
    it all correctly.

    OK... then we have the same understanding of it... :)

    she had said thought it was pronounced 'reed' and her roommate 'red'.

    Yup, multiple pronunciations, too... They were both right, depending,
    again, on the context... Present tense is `reed', past tense is `red'...
    And "lead" is 'leed' if it's talking about the action, and 'led' if
    talking about the mineral... :)

    And of course the word 'set' has something like 60 different
    definitions. (No, did not bring that one up!!) Plus words that sound
    the same: threw and through. Gaaa!!!

    And I still haven't managed to get mine yet... other stuff seems

    So my general procrastination is contagious?! And LIS earlier, I'm not
    too concerned about getting the Shingrex shot as have had the original
    vaccine and last visit with the medical doctor he wasn't at all
    concerned other than I should have it when it becomes available.


    And I don't recall if you mentioned or already know but this vaccine

    Found something a couple of months ago: the 'a' sounds in "Australia"

    Ah poo! And a family of 12 is rather large - 6 more like it. Though to BM>me that's huge as I'm and only brat--err, child.

    Sort of like:

    1) The Israeli woman who had 69 kids (wonder if that's where the term
    came from). I saw 2 rolls of Scotch Tape placed in a certain position,
    so it looked like it formed the number "69", with the caption "Sex
    Tape". <G>

    2) The Duggar Family in northwest Arkansas, where Michelle (Jim's wife)
    was pregnant every time you turned around. They are grandparents now,
    and unfortunately, one of the kids was caught doing porn behind his
    wife's back.

    3) A woman seemed to have a baby every 9 months, and couldn't figure out
    why. Well, she had just delivered a baby, and the next day, they caught
    her husband and her having intercourse in the hospital bed.

    Like you have been through enough surgeries and examinations it's
    prettyBM> BM>much just "OK" and comply.
    Nurses do call the shots. :P
    <groan!>
    Which butt cheek do we go for today?? <G>

    At least you specified which cheek! ("Upper" or "lower" set!)

    In "Smokey And The Bandit", Sally Fields was in a conversation with
    Burt Reynolds, and she had used the word "cheeks"...then she touched her
    face, and said "THESE cheeks!!" <G>. As a widower, I know we're all the
    same from the backside...but all the human butts are broken...with a big
    crack right down the middle. <G>

    Or when the little boy was asked which arm he wanted the shot
    in, he replied "Mothers!!" <G>

    Adult: in my Manhatten! (Shot of booze -- Manhatten have a shot?? I'd BM>pan the Potent Potables category on _Jeopardy!_.)

    On a keyboard, typewriter and otherwise, the letters U, I, and O, are
    right next to each other. At times in chat on the BBS, or in a message,
    I mean to type SHUT or SHOT -- but, I'll give you 3 guesses as to what I
    type instead, and the first 2 don't count. <G>

    And worms are probably worse than a tapeworm.
    Never mind the tape...how about the Scotch?? :P

    Wanting body tape so his kilt stops flying up!

    The late Red Skelton noted "When I was growing up, nothing in a skirt
    was safe...nothing. Then, came that day when that Scotsman about beat me
    to death"!! <G>

    There was a T-shirt I saw in central Arkansas several years ago, and
    having worked in Silkscreen Printing for almost 20 years, I knew what
    all was involved. But, it pictures of donkeys with various items, such
    as:

    A) Donkey with Doctorate Cap and Gown: Smart Ass.
    B) Donkey with Dunce Cap On Head: Dumb Ass.
    C) Donkey with Lip Prints On It's Back: Kiss My Ass.
    D) Donkey with Agony On Its Face: Pain In The Ass.
    E) Donkey with Only Part Of Its Body: Half Ass.

    There were several more, but I can't remember them. I hate that I
    didn't buy that shirt. I guess I'd have to do a search for it.

    I'm always looking for neat T-shirts...here are some others I've seen:

    1) A picture of an ocelot, that looks like it has been sucking on
    bitter persimmons, with the caption "I have PMS and a handgun. Any
    questions??" <G>

    2) Old English Lettering with "We'll All Get Along Just Fine...When You
    Come To Realize I'm God". (I think this is appropriate for the majority
    of the politicans). :P

    3) Sarcastic Remark Coming in 3....2....1....

    4) One Doesn't Get Older, One Gets Better. And, I'm approaching
    MAGNIFICENT. <G>

    5) A picture of this moving company truck, and these 4 characters bent
    over in uproarious laughter, asking "You Want It When??!!" :P

    We also had done a variety of "family reunion" shirts...the names for
    some of them were bizarre, to say the least. I had to wonder what stuff
    the parents were smoking when they named the kids. :P

    For the record, I was named for Daryl Zanuck, the motion picture director...and my brother was named for movie actor Dana Andrews.

    considerations.... I never got the original one, though, so I do
    really think I should at least eventually get the newer
    (two-part) one....

    From what I've heard about shingles one does not want it, so yes, unless
    there is a strong reason not to obtain the vaccine it's one of the few optional shots I'd get.


    One would think with 26 letters we could come up with a better variety
    of words!
    You'd think... <G> But there's lots of words with multiple
    meanings depending on context.... :)
    I know! Was thinking back to my chat with the hotel staff re: "read":
    she had said thought it was pronounced 'reed' and her roommate 'red'.
    Yup, multiple pronunciations, too... They were both right, depending,
    again, on the context... Present tense is `reed', past tense is
    `red'... And "lead" is 'leed' if it's talking about the action, and
    'led' if talking about the mineral... :)
    <chuckle> Yes! At the time I did bring up another word with multiple pronunciation and meanings but same spelling and made a little fun of
    the English language ==> more to emphasize they (the staff I was
    talking to) were technically correct and the language was a little
    crazy. ... Found something a couple of months ago: the 'a' sounds in "Australia" have three different sounds! I'd guess because of the adjacent letters, especially vowels, but still....
    Adjacent letters, and position in the word...

    True. Found this article of interest: https://getpocket.com/explore/item/english-is-not-normal?utm_source=pock et-newtab as far as a light reading on the evolution of the English
    language.


    And of course the word 'set' has something like 60 different
    definitions. (No, did not bring that one up!!) Plus words that sound
    the same: threw and through. Gaaa!!!
    Lots of just needing to memorize what is which and where... ;)
    I didn't bring it up at the hotel chat but one could spell 'fish' as 'ghoti': the f-sound is 'tough', forgot the 'i', 'ti' as in 'nation'.
    (How d'heck does one get the 'sh' sound out of that??!!"
    (nay-shun) The 'o' as a short i sound probably comes from some
    other word where the short vowel is rather a dull sound more like
    an i than an o... but off the top of my head I'm not coming up
    with it either... :)

    Assignments for us both! :)

    When I had read Wegman's had a supply and eliminated the waiting list I
    had thought Hy-Vee might have done the same; was halfway warm here so
    wore a lighter-weight long-sleeved shirt ==> roll up the sleeve easily.
    Not that warm so also wore either a sweater or a vest -- either way was
    more accessible.

    So my general procrastination is contagious?! And LIS earlier, I'm
    not too concerned about getting the Shingrex shot as have had the

    Hi Nancy!

    Thought of this earlier but figured I'd wait to where it comes up in the discussions. Monday night get a call at 7:54 (so 8:54 East Coast time --
    a bit late for a business call) "Hy-Vee Food Store" and what seems to be
    the correct telephone number comes up on the Caller ID. Not expecting a
    call from them; have received which is why the Caller ID display doesn't
    look wrong, just the lateness is a bit of a flag.

    Semi-cautiously answer, somewhat recognize the voice and with the rest
    of the initial conversation verify it it one of the pharmacists: my
    Shingrex is in and so can have the shot when I come in Thursday morning (tomorrow as I type this). So will find out the where and about
    follow-up.

    Apparently still limitations on availability: a friend is schedule to
    get his shot via his doctor's office and has an appointment with the
    nurse Tuesday morning but was told to call in Friday to verify there is sufficient vaccine on hand at the office ==> limited availability.

    give out, the more likely they'll get a good supply ongoing....

    Hi Nancy!

    Thought of this earlier but figured I'd wait to where it comes up in
    the discussions. Monday night get a call at 7:54 (so 8:54 East Coast
    time -- a bit late for a business call) "Hy-Vee Food Store" and what
    seems to be the correct telephone number comes up on the Caller ID.
    Not expecting a call from them; have received which is why the Caller
    ID display doesn't look wrong, just the lateness is a bit of a flag.
    Doctor's offices and pharmacies don't hold to standard business
    hours, though... I've had doctors return calls well into the
    evening, long past their office hours.... and a pharmacy has
    later hours anyway....

    Agree. Any time earlier or later than what I consider 'normal and
    convenient' I'd check to be sure open. At this point thinking the
    pharmacy. The one at Hy-Vee doesn't open until 9; normally I don't
    wander over until 10. Off hand no idea when they close so if I needed something late I'd either check during the call or look up on line.
    Doctor's offices can be open early - dr. is an early bird. IIRC he also
    is closed Friday afternoon; almost doesn't matter as I prefer a morning appointment.



    Semi-cautiously answer, somewhat recognize the voice and with the rest
    of the initial conversation verify it it one of the pharmacists: my Shingrex is in and so can have the shot when I come in Thursday
    morning (tomorrow as I type this). So will find out the where and
    about follow-up.
    Yes... and I did see your message about actually getting it...
    Good for you... ;) Did you end up with much of side effects....?

    No-to-minimal. The injection site was slightly tender for two nights
    but only when sleeping on my side and so had pressure on it. Reposition
    the arm and took care of that. (Semi-gross coming up - skip the rest of
    the paragraph if squeamish.) Yesterday did have seveal diarrhea
    episodes. Is a listed side effect, could also have just been "spring cleaning". Four days following the injection so thinking just the
    'spring cleaning'. Monograph also states "side effects ... bother you
    or do not go away". Well it's a bit of a bother to have diarrhea but
    did go away. I'm thinking was just a coincidence.



    Exactly... I've actually experienced a friend or two in the throes of
    it, so know I don't want to get it... and as well, may already have
    had a mild sub-acute case that left me with the neuralgia in my
    back... certainly don't want a full-blown case....
    Definitely not!! ...I didn't ask at the Pharmacy yesterday: they were
    busier than usual and had a bit of line, plus I had inquired two or
    three weeks ago and the supply probably hasn't changed.
    And theoretically, your store still has an active waiting list on
    which you are supposedly still on, so they should be getting back to
    you when they can give you the shot... ;)
    Yes, I'm thinking the same. At this point it's more a "whenever" type
    of thing for me: no rush. Definitely need to get, probably within the
    year. (I'm thinking available more by summer.)
    I might get mine before that... similarly though, I'm not in a
    rush... and there are a few other health issues that I might want
    more resolved before I toss the shot into the mix... ;)
    Apparently still limitations on availability: a friend is scheduled to
    get his shot via his doctor's office and has an appointment with the
    nurse Tuesday morning but was told to call on Friday to verify there
    is sufficient vaccine on hand at the office ==> limited availability.
    The pharmacist here was saying that how much they are sent of the
    vaccine depends in part on how much they actually use, so the
    more they give out, the more likely they'll get a good supply
    ongoing....

    Makese sense: overall probably a limited supply so don't want to have it sitting in a refrigerator when other sites could be using it.

    Hi Nancy!

    Four messages! Either got bored with your other stuff or the taxes are
    done!

    Usually there's no risk that we'd be arriving before they open...
    just that we might not get there before they close on a weekend
    evening...

    Yes, the latter is a somewhat greater issue. At least by arriving early
    you can wait or perhaps do a quick nearby errand. If closed for the
    evening it's another trip.


    Doctor's offices can be open early - dr. is an early bird. IIRC he
    also is closed Friday afternoon; almost doesn't matter as I prefer a
    morning appointment.
    Our dentist has later hours on Thursday, and then takes Friday off...
    Ooo! Three day weekends!! OTOH maybe found people don't like coming

    That's possible too. Patients working during the weekdays, want to do something on the weekend besides wait for the afternoon appointment -
    Saturday morning it is!


    Monograph also states "side effects ... bother you or do not go away".
    Well it's a bit of a bother to have diarrhea but did go away. I'm
    thinking was just a coincidence.

    tiny green polka dots on my shirt as tan one day and the proper colour
    the next.


    ... Fencing: the sport that looks like two bee keepers dueling.
    I did a little fencing when I was in college... There is a lot of protective clothing one wears for the sport... ;)

    Even with the rounded tip of the practice saber (right term?) with a jab
    or slicing move it can still cut unprotected skin. Only fencing I did
    was to select the one in the back yard. <rs!>
