Whatever this crud is that I’ve been dealing with, it’s really kicking my butt. In yesterday’s blog, I wrote that I thought it was probably from all of the pollen in the air, but it may be a cold, which I seem to get about this time every year. I’m not feverish, I just have a sore throat and nasal distress. And I’m tired.
Even though I slept well Wednesday night, over eight hours, I was still tired when I woke up. I didn’t have any appetite, but I had some orange juice and a bagel with my morning meds, then I sat down in my recliner and slept for another four hours. But when I woke up in the late afternoon, I was still tired. ☹ I took some Alka Seltzer Cold and Flu formula, and that seemed to help quite a bit. Hopefully, today will be a better day.
Since I didn’t get any writing done and didn’t do much at all, there’s really nothing else to tell you about, except that, like everybody else, I’m appalled at the Russians’ invasion of Ukraine and appalled that any American could possibly think it’s a good idea and praise Putin for it. I hope that the sanctions we and other Western countries are imposing on them will do some good, but it concerns me. I see Putin as another Adolf Hitler, bent on world domination, and I think we are as close to World War III right this moment as we will ever be. And I pray that I’m wrong.
Finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.
Be sure to enter our latest Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an autographed copy of The Vigilante by W.R. Hill. It’s the tale of a former CIA covert operative who left the business and settled down in a picturesque small New England town, wanting nothing more than a quiet life as a homemaker and a mother. But when an act of violence shatters that dream, she puts her old skills to work again, taking the law into her own hands.
