Sticker Shock

I am reeling from Sticker Shock!

We just returned from the local Travel Clinic! Of course we want to make sure that we are up to date on our vaccines etc. and check out that there are no nasty medical surprises in the area. Good news is that Malaria does not appear to be too much of a problem. Got to like that!

45 minutes later …..1 Typhoid vaccine and 1 shot for Japanese Encephalitis each! Total bill $550 and to add insult to injury this is the first of 2 shots ……here comes another $400 hit. At least we have 28 days to get ready for it.

Last week we had our Diving Medicals done….. you got it!  $65 for each!  My Doctor is such a sweetie when I told him what we were doing; he grabbed his wallet and pulled out a contribution! Every bit helps  :<) Thank you to everyone who has chipped in with their help, support, donations or just spreading the word.

Volunteering is expensive!!!

NOT doing something about saving our planet and resources is going to cost a LOT more!

Sadly Engineering school got in the way….. “it takes 5 years to complete and a lot longer to get over”. He still considers himself a “recovering” Professional Engineer. He escaped the rat race at 44 and now pursues his passions for travel, photography, Tai chi, scuba diving, cooking and sampling the world’s wines. Michael is also… Fiercely independent, a bit of a rebel, is on a self-imposed media diet & married to an incredible lady.
