Laid Low

Where I will be in a few minutes - my bed resting before I go to work tonight
Still struggling here with this Zombie Cold folks.  I got through my shift at the hotel last night, without too much wheezing and sneezing. Under normal circumstances I would call in sick but these are not normal circumstances.  Just my luck this Zombie Cold  is hitting me at the end of the year.

I was hesitant to do another post about my cold but I just can't think of anything else.  I'm pretty sure this is the flu because I ache all over.  When I woke up this morning in my bed I could hardly move, every joint in my body ached.  Well, every one but one.  

Bill drove me down to the Rehoboth Walmart earlier this morning.  I loaded up on Cold Eaze, chicken soup, and Zicam.  I don't know if these cold remedies are really helping me or just prolonging my misery.

Hey folks, sorry to be such a wet rag with this constant complaining.  I can't wait until I'm up to snuff again.  I work tonight and tomorrow night.

  Happy New Year!

Me, on the floor, New Year's Eve - 1963

I'd like to wish you, in turn, a Happy and a HEALTHY New Year, Ron. I hope that when 2013 you'll be feeling like a 'new man'. ;-)

My Cardiologist recommended Saline Nasel Spray. It seemed to take hold better !

Happy New Year Ron

Ron, get well. I said three weeks and so it shall be, but you mustn't overwork in the mean time. As Shakespeare said: "Thy photos attest, thou need'st thy rest." As an aside, the 1963 pic reminds me of a Wyeth painting but can't quite place it. Happy New Year and, seriously, take care.

One more night of work then I' m until next Monday! Ad ain't no way I'm going in earlier that that. I'm make the big sacrifice even coming in tonight and tomorrow night sick as a dog.

Love catching up and seeing all those old photos. Hope you get the rest you need and and back to your old "grumpy" self ;-)

Ron said...


Oh I'll be back to my old gumpy and mischief making self in no time.


Ron said...


2012 was a very interesting year. I am ready for a fabulous year. I hope it is 2013! Happy new year to you too!


Ron said...

Anne Marie,

Some things are starting to slow down though. Just like an old dependable car, some of the parts start rusting.


Ron said...


I don't usual nasal spray because my nose always runs. One good thing, I never have a sinus infection which I understand is very painful. Thank God.


Ron said...

That's right Jay, no fun. I think I'm on the upswing now after a long morning nap. I'm ready to leave this cold behind me like I left 2012 last night.

Have a great new year!
