Damn. Sore throat, tinnitus, cold. Should have been more sympathetic when BJRS got their colds last week. Got Fisherman’s Friend (NO not a friendly fisherman), lots of fluids of the nonalcoholic kind. Took last of my Cold FX. Low activity day, probably reading and thinking great thoughts. To my afflicted family above, ‘I feel your pain’
I will be back at it tomorrow! T’is the season. Wash your hands, lots of fluid and rest.
Usually when I feel a cold coming on I take ColdFx and it never comes to fruition. I did not do that this week.
Now I have a cold. Probably the first in several years. So I hiked off to the store, stocked up on soup, the aformentioned med, and red licorice. As a nurse I know red licorice heals all. Well, I figured it would help my scratchy throat. Its too bad everything is tasteless today. But I have persisted. After all the saying is feed a cold, starve a fever. I hope I did not get that backwards? Cause I have been feeding.
When I was in shopping I came across Clive just begging to come home with me. How could I resist? I had already decided to spend the day resting and while he never fails to raise my interest I find him also comforting.
Truth be told it is not Clive himself who draws my interest but Juan. Juan Cabillaro. So I have spent the afternoon and early evening with these two charming men.
Thank you Clive Cussler and your hero in The Silent Sea for making my day better.
PS Now you really did not believe for even a minute that it could be anything except a really good book?
