I don't believe it... I'm sick again!  I think that bug that went up my nose yesterday was the flu bug because I feel like kaa-kaa!  Dickidoo is feeling pretty lousy, and so is little Rocky.  The flu has hit this town like a ton of bricks.  Well, at least I'm getting sick while I still have sick leave to pay for it.

Still no word on Big Red.  Dickidoo went down to check on it on Friday and it was still in pieces... so much for 'just a couple of days'.  Thats okay, I'm in no mood to go joy riding right now.  I've already got folks at work asking to take the truck out for a spin ... why?  I mean, I love Big Red cos its my truck... but why are they getting so excited about my pickup... she's not even a new truck... she's a '92... but she's classy, I have to admit that!  The Bonneville has been good to me, but its time to get the F150 back under my butt!  Well... maybe next week... when I'm feeling better. 

My mom used to give me hot lemonade sweetened with honey when ever I got sick as a child.  I used to marvel at how it could always make me feel better.  I later learned that it was only partly due to the soothing effects of the honey and lemon... The real magical cure was in my mom's TLC.  I sure could use some right about now, but there's no time to be sick when you're a mother and a wife.  I'm off to tend to my other patients.

Awww bebe': feel the loving ANdi-vibes comin' your way...I think the only thing that parallels what you are going thru, tending others when you are sick, is me having to tend ME when I'm sick and here alone..god, that sucks azz!

*I am a good one to end folks tho..make Dickido go get ya'll some Lemon Nighttime TheraFlu..a little local honey and some sugar, and it'll fix what's ailin' you. I promise.

*feel better-

I'm sorry your sick again. That really sucks. I've never heard of hot leamonade, but a hot toddy always helped me, of course if you put enough wiskey in it , you didn't care if you were sick or not. LOL.
Hugs. R.c.

Do you like tea, that helps with lemon and honey too and your memories of Mom's tender care....hope you get better soon.

My sister catches everything. she has allergies and asthma and I often wonder if thats why. she has been on and off antibiotics so much over a short period of time that her doctor said this time she was gonna give her the strongest one she could and finally kill it. she has about 2 days left of antibiotics and shes sick again. I hope your feeling great soon, and dickidoo

Did that hot honey and lemon have just a touch of whiskey in it? I hope you get better soon.

Me too.  We're all sick here as well.  We just keep passing that same darn cold around and around.  I'm so tired of being sick.

Oh well.
