Everytime I tell someone that I have been through the winter without getting sick......I get sick. I knocked on wood and everything, but it didn't help. My grandsons were here this weekend, and one of them got sick. His step-dad has had the flu, sinuses, full-boat as they say, and the little guy got it and has now given it to me. You know that tickle in the throat....twinges of ear pain.....burning eyes.....that signals a cold or flu coming on? I have it in spades - plus a weird sunburn from the parade yesterday. I had a hat on, but the sun got me on the left chest, neck and arm. A one-half "farmer" tan is not the best way to start the season, is it? I just used Zicam for the first time. anyone have any experience with it? A pharmacist told me that it works wonders, but the box says it is for colds - not the flu - so I don't know if it will help or not.
The painting is by Jan Steen, titled "The Sick Woman", c. 1665, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.
Is there any way to make an hour move faster than an episode of "The Sopranos"? I love that program; from the beginning music to the credits. It was so great to have it back tonight! A few surprises and a bit of a recap (which made me happy). We were momentarily surprised to see Adriana, until it was revealed that Carmela was dreaming. The ending was a shock, but I am betting it will turn out okay.......how could it not????
