R U  trying to get a covid vaccine shot?

             If you qualify, go to this PUBLIX site,
       Publix.com/covid  and follow instructions.  βœ”️
   Be patient, to get an appointment can take some time. 
 
NOT Healthy?  You might be surprised at these items.
 
WHAT!     Remember an 🍎 apple a day…  etc  
    Don’t overdo it.  They are acidic can cause indigestion.
 

Will the “CREW” events resume?  πŸ€” πŸ‘ πŸ‘Ž

     T.B.D.     The old “Norman’s” location is still 
                      under re-construction.  “Tin Whiskey” 
                 will open soon?  per owner Stevie Whittaker.
 
Reflecting!  The HAPPY HOUR CREW, formed at
   that location in 2007.  When the new place opens
                    (after a few weeks of trial operations)
       possibly, we could consider a CREW Reunion?

           More info and discussion when T.W.  opens.
