Well, with the usual perfect timing we seem to have come down with a case of the flu. I say "we" but I really mean Farmmom, Farmdad, and Mamaw.

So far, I think my fall allergy sinus congestion has been protecting me from the bugs. If I can't breathe in the germs can't get in.

Farmmom's been down the longest but she seems to be improving. Farmdad caught it from her, and Mamaw came down with it after he did.

I'm just hoping that it clears up in time for me to sanitize the house, because we've got a lot of company coming in about ten days.

So cross your fingers and send healthy thoughts, guys. Otherwise, with my luck, I'll be miserable for the big weekend.

Hey Farmgirl, (with phony NJ accent) I got your healthy thoughts right here... Joking aside, ya'll get better quick.

My Mom has been dealing with inner ear trouble and taking Clortrimeton for it... she finally got sick of two doses per day and quit taking it. This morning, she woke up with cold symptoms. So far, though, we've been ducking the flu.

What's really bad about the crud is that it bounces back and forth - sometimes for months. One gets over it, another catches it, it mutates, and the first one comes down with it again.

I don't have a lot of advice, but my wife is a firm believer that the hand sanitizing products are a must have. She claims religious use has kept her, and her mother, crud free for over a year. I don't know, since I always seem to be the one that is exposed, carries it here and there, and never gets sick.

I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Keep your dirty hands out of all mucus membranes - eyes, nose, mouth, etc.
