Down With A Cold.....

Got the blechs again...

Started feeling something coming on late Sunday. My wife came home early last Thursday, and took Friday off, and now it looks like I have it.

Sore throat, runny nose, minor cough, and general blotto feeling.

Feeling somewhat better today, and spent most of the day sleeping. I'll hit the NyQil and Mucinex in a few, and then off to bed.

Oh, well.....


  1. That's referred to, here, as "low-grade yuck". Either way, I hope you feel better soon.

    1. Hopefully I'll be better Friday. I have to take the radio from the Maritime Museum to get repaired.

  2. Same here.
    The wifely unit started in on it Sunday, I barely made it through work Tuesday and bagged it for the rest of the week.
    I have the time built up and it's too dangerous to be wandering around half out of it.

    Nyquil is my friend too. I wonder why they put that little measuring cup over the mouth of the bottle?
    I throw that away and just chug it a couple of times.

    Lights out.

    Hope you guys get to feeling better, this one seems to linger on for a while.

    1. They give you the cup so you don't OD on acetaminophen that's in in.

      They say take no more than 4 little cups of it per day, but I usually take 6.

  3. I'm just off that death spiral, which ended with stomach flu and more than one bowls of top ramen. Hang in there. Lunch with NFO was the first real food I had in 4 or 5 days.

    1. Thanks, LL.

      Been eating Campbell's chicken and rice soup with rye bread, one of my childhood comfort foods...

  4. That sucks! Hope y'all get over it quickly!


Keep it civil, please....

Fabulous Fall Day

 Some of the trees are showing signs of turning, but they're not in their Fall colors yet.  This is from two years ago. We have Bumper C...
