Sorry you had problems with your vaccine -- the only thing worse is tetanus itself. I saw a man here (I live in Mexico) with tetanus; half of him turned lemon yellow and the other half was BLACK! They barely saved him, but his liver was toast. I'd take the shot! I do it every ten years, faithfully, after seeing this poor guy. We tend to think of tetanus as something from the middle ages, but it walks among us!
I am starting my break today, sat through a near miss with a cat 5 drinking water all day... I can relate to what you said about not really wanting to do that! But it went well, skated by us! LUCKY!
Good to hear from you; sounds like you're doing great and keeping busy. Have a great summer, and don't get wet! I'm here working on the same project.
