If it doesn't arrive soon, make sure to keep on them. Our local UPS guy delivered a vacuum cleaner my mom and dad sent for my birthday to another address (fortunately the people looked me up in the phone book and called and I went and got it). Also I won a contest that author Lisa Scottoline held (she wanted lawyer jokes for one of her books) and the prize was an autographed copy of her latest (at that time) book, The Vendetta Defense, and paperback copies of all her books that came before that. It never got here (UPS), and fortuntely she sent another set, which I got. So stay on them, and also let the company you bought it from know. UPS insures packages, so it shouldn't be a problem for you to get a new one if the first one is lost.

Dear Flu:

Please go away. It has been two weeks, and this morning, I woke up with a temperature again.

Also, on your way out, please take the snow with you.

Thanks.

Yeah, it seems to hang on longer this year. I found that Zicam kicks it out quicker than others, but, it has to be started as soon as possible, but, you might try it. I hope you get better really soon.

Awww Sparrow, I'm sorry this is hanging on so long for you. This has been a bad flu season and has taken so many people by surprise since the flu vaccine wasn't a good match for the virus this year. Lots of my friends got the shot and a month later, the flu, too! Take care of yourself, drink a lot of fluids, rest even more and take long hot baths. ( That's my standard treatment for flu here!)

Thanks, guys. I did have my flu shot.

I think I probably am cooking up some bronchitis/pneumonia right now, a secondary infection after the flu. I will hit the doc's office on Monday, if not sooner.

dh feels like he is coming down with something and I am keeping him filled with hot tomato juice and echineacia (sp?) tincture. He really likes the whiskey, er, tincture!

There is a poor dog running around trying to find somewhere to hide from the storms. ARGH, that make my heart break. I tried to get her/him to come into the storage gate, could hid under one of the RV's or something, but, it was scared of me.

I know how you feel. Everybody got flu shots here but me (I can't get em), but we have all been taking turns being sick for the last three months. Any given day someone here is sick. Right now it is my son and youngest daughter, while DW is just recovering from a bad chest cold and horrible coughing.
Meanwhile I have had chest pains for the last three days and it is really getting to be annoying and is slowing me way down on getting things done around the house.
