Garden gate, Adelaide

I am sort of catching up with my walking in Adelaide, as things here are looking dryer and dryer.
A busy day today, AGM of the Womens and Childrens's auxilliary down here of which I am still patron. Interesting guest speaker Professor David Ellis who was a fungi man with some hair raising tales of modern fungus and how we are now getting more and nastier ones than before some which have stopped being transferred from animals like the old ring worm and are now being transferred from human to human.
Also a quote, all mushrooms are edible...once.
On the basis of his talk while at my local docotr's for my 4 monthly blood test check I asked about being immunised for whooping cough as David had said that those of us who were immunised 50 years ago, our immunisation was running out and there now was an adult booster available, so I am now vaccinated for whooping cough once more. I might add he was very scathing about people who dont immunise as they are the hot beds for future, possibly much nastier problems.
On that probably controversial note I will close.

I'm glad you had a good time on your week away. Very nice garden gate - gates are so symbolic of things - security, ownership, exclusion...

You must write a story for your grandchildren of 'The Hair Raising Adventures of a Fungi Man'! You do have an interesting life, such diverse happenings every day! You can get good stories from visiting doctors too - did I tell you the one about going to pathology for a glug test for possible diabetes and I happily drank the sugary stuff, then waited. The man next to me was telling me about his liver transplant until I went greener and greener. You an imagine the rest.... The results of the test couldn't be measured of course! I still haven't had been retested!
