    It was a nice day and I'm feeling better, so I went out and about. My voice stayed home, leaving me to continue croaking at everyone. My head is a little stuffed up still, but on the whole, I'm feeling human again. I will get back into moving things around and taking measurements so I can check if m... Read more

    Well, I'm coughing my fool head off and my voice sounds like a frog, but I do think the cold is on its way out. I always think these symptoms should come first, so people will think we are sick. I am getting back to house work and it's kind of depressing. The laundry is almost finished. I still have... Read more

    I am starting to feel better. I even have some energy. I started cleaning up the mess that grew the last few days when I was not paying attention. That may take me a day or two, but what's time when you're retired? I still have the stuffed up nose and the cough, but they are fading fast.... Read more
