If you're Wondering what happened to me, and where I've been for the last TWO WEEKS...

I have been SICK, SICK, SICK! I've got the Dreaded Flu, as does Lover Man too, too, Too!

They say Misery Loves company...So at this point, we are WILD about each other and ready to KILL as well! Such a fine, fine line we walk.

We are such a sight to see, My Hair looks like it's been GLUED to my HEAD...While his looks a Mess and we've got Company coming on Friday...What to do, What to do. Let's put us to the Test...



AS LONG AS THERE ARE TESTS, There will always be Prayer In Public Schools.

Laugh Alone...and the world thinks you're an Idiot!

Sometimes I wake up Grumpy...other Times I Let him Sleep!!

We are Born, Naked, Wet and Hungry...Then Things get worse.

DIPLOMACY is the Art of Saying, "Nice Doggie"... till you can find a big Enough Rock!

I wonder: How much Deeper the Ocean would be without the Sponges?

Honk if you Love Peace and Quiet.

A Day without Sun Shine is like, you know. NIGHT!

Well, what do you know...Lover Man is forming a Smile and I see the old Twinkle forming around his eyes, and is he giving me that Look, that SPECIAL Look that say's "I want your Body..." Mmmm. I'm running into my Bathroom, Splashing some Cold Water on my Face, and a dab of Perfume here and mostly THERE...Look out World, Here we come!

      Just look at you! Down with the dreaded flu, but certainly not down with your attitude. What a trooper you are, b. So glad you're on the mend. And even though your "ailing" - you still find humor for your hub family to enjoy. I laughed so hard at your one liners! How blessed you are to have a "honey" to share these times with. Sending a get-well and stay-well hug to both of you

      Thanks Minnetonka Twin, actually today, Thurs. I sort of feel NORMAL! So it's been about two weeks and a few days. Glad I could still make you laugh.

      Thanks Pixienot, I really missed Everyone and now that I'm feeling better, I can't wait to get back to writing and looking at all The Hubs I've missed.

      Thanks Fossillady, it's amazing what a week of straight sleeping will due...Glad you liked the Jokes...missed you too!

      b.Malin! I missed you and wondered if you were on vacation. I am so very sorry you are or have been ill.

      I avoid the flu by not taking flu shots! I also am blessed or I would get it, I suppose. :) :)

      I am glad you are on the road to recovery. As well, you are right, laughter is indeed the best medicine! (That is once the puking stops!)

      Voted up and awesome. Welcome Back.

      Hi b.Malin-Sorry you got the "crud." That's what we call it around here. I pray you get better faster than I did. I had flu, cold and sinus stuff that lasted about 10 days. Loved your uplifting/funny quotes.

      ...well when you're sick I'm sick too - poetically speaking - lol - and on an ironic note - I had a bad week where I was making a hobby out of a head cold (last week) so welcome back as I always wish you good health anyway and I just left you a nice comment on Grotesque lament!

      Hey CJ Andrews, each day, it get's a little bit better...Thanks for your warm wishes.

      Hey WillStarr, Frisky is good, and each get's a little better, we'll either die with Smiles on, or get an E for Effort!

      It's either that Michelle, or go Crazy...I'll take THAT! THANKS FOR STOPPING BY.

      Thanks Alicia, and so glad you liked the Jokes, my humor gets wired when I'm sick.

      Thanks Breakfastpops (Doc) We'll drink to that!

      Actually Bluestar, Laugh alone, and you know you're OK...Actually I hope he Chocks on the Perfume...NAH, considering our sickness to health, we're not doing too bad.

      Hey Chery Thanks, maybe I should write more when I'm SICK...It goes with my humor> Thanks my friend for your well wishes!

      Hope you are doing better and it doesn't re-catch. I know my wife and kids seem to pass any virus around so each goes through it twice before it runs its cycle.

      It seems to be a LONG, SLOW process, trying to get rid of the Flu. But here's hoping we are finally on the Road to recovery...Thanks for stopping by Shygirl.
