  14. Re "one minute late", don't speed in Bluebell! Hope it's not too late to say that. Better to be a few minutes late rather than not permitted to drive to work for six months my son. (Moaning "Daddy" Andrew)

    Hope the shift and the drive there and back again are easy and pleasant.
    I don't miss those work mornings (or evenings) when all was so carefully timed so, barring road work, I wouldn't be late. Before leaving for work, I often put a pot roast or something else in the Crock Pot so the house would smell wonderful and dinner would be simple. Enjoy your soup!

    Hugs!

  28. All is good. Take caution driving. (An occasional plus or minus minutes on arrival times are okay.) The home fires await your return. Lovely.

  30. A bit off topic but I was wondering if, now that you're fully vaccinated and presumably cannot transmit or catch the Covid, must you dress for work in the extreme PPE [?] layers of protective gear?

    Hope your day is goood.

  31. I believe the jury is still out on whether vaccinated folks can still transmit.
