OH NO! YUK THE FLU!


I knew it had to be something! My nose was getting redder by the day. A red nose for a clown is something to be proud of having.
Noooooo! Not in this case. It started about halfway on our trip south. I had to cut my visits with family short and kept to myself so as not to infect anyone else.

We kept checking the mail for a letter from Kleenex or Puffs thanking us for
our increased sales of their products. Nothing! Not even a free coupon! That's gratitude for ya!!!!!

Four days, flat on my back and nothing but chicken soup, water, tea
and toast made me feel I was serving a prison sentence on bread and water! All the aches, head and all over just racked me and feeling weak did nothing but sleep. This was not just a cold. It was Arrrrrgh Yuk, "The Flu"!!!

Thanks to Fluffy, my personal nurse and culinary expert, I am feeling better but not 100%. Laugh Silly laugh. You will feel better!!!! I did and now I do!!!!. . . . . .

Oh no! What a thing to happen while you're traveling. We surely do hope that you are all better soon.

I just came down with what I'm calling "The Death Flu," I haven't been this sick in ages.

Came by for a giggle, hope it really is the best medicine!

Glad you're feeling better, sometimes you pick up weird stuff when you travel, and I'm not talking about replicas of giant twine balls!

There is no way you can blame this on me! I told you not to give me a kiss goodbye!

I'm glad you are feeling better!

Thank you all so very very much. Your kind thoughts mean a lot to me.

It has been many years since my last bout with influenza. This one has been a real bad one. It tends to hang on and return to get you again.

Please all beware of this and take care of yourselves. Hugs to all.

Sorry to hear you are under the weather. But can you still play pickleball? We are under the weather as well....snow! Still hoping to be on the road Thursday morning if things thaw. Take care.
