coughing, coughing, coughing

I spent the night in the recliner. No, Dorothy and I weren't fighting. Even if we were, she wouldn't kick me out of bed. Where would she put her cold feet?

No, I had to sit up to sleep because of chest cold. I can't seem to be able to stop coughing. I'm taking some over the counter stuff that does relieve the symptoms somewhat, but I'll be glad when this is over.

When I was delivering mail I would usually come down with one good cold a year, and I thought after retirement that one cold would be eliminated. After all, I'm not out in the cold air. But, maybe that's where I need to be. I've been going to fire training, and fire meetings, and we try to carpool when we can. Being enclosed with other people has caused be to catch several colds.
Not that I have any plans to return to the delivery of mail. But, I think I need to spend more time outside.

If you think riding in cars with people can give you colds, try going into a day care centre. Kids store that stuff up, then with beatific smiles, breathe it on you.

True. And then they spread snot every where.

Are you feeling a little better? Those colds have a tendency of hanging on much longer than you think they should be able to do.

Dawn: I am feeling better. It's true colds seem to hang on forever especially the older I get.
