DAMN!!!


For someone who is seldom sick, this really pisses me off! Sure I have back issues, my blood pressure moves up and down, a little high these days, 145/75, I need to shed 15 or 20 pounds, 208 right now, turn 60 in about 7 weeks, etc, etc, I usually can count on at least feeling pretty healthy...

Not so this winter. Early in December I came down with a cold that lasted almost a month...3 weeks later, I come down with another. One day after getting my 6 month BP and heart check-up, I feel the tingle, and it's not down my leg thinking about "The Obamanation" being sworn into office. It was in my throat on Wednesday night. After my JV girls game last evening, it had turned into another full blown cold, and it sucks. Sure I can still move around and do my daily chores, and basketball games...at least for now. But it still stinks! I purchased some rather expensive over-the-counter cold med called "Zicam"...so far it's been a $10 failure, but I started on it late in my symptoms...so will see how it goes from here on out.

Today is a day of rest...no games, I will need it, tomorrow this old fart has 3, a Junior High boys double header at 10AM at Waynesfield(with Sam), then tomorrow night I do a boys JV game at Lima Perry....that should be a test, considering how my cold feels...I will probably need Sunday to rest up for the next week, which includes 4 nights of basketball and my VSPA Mini-Reunion at Wright-Patterson.
---
Our weather will hit above freezing for the first time in over 3 weeks today...that will last exactly one day. Tomorrow back to teens for highs and single digits for lows.

In the meantime I will take meds, listen to Beck and Rush, and drink plenty of fluids...mostly coffee and OJ. For now, it's down to the basement, for a nice hot shower.

back later>>>>>>>

It would take me a full half-hour to type the name of where you two were wed. Love your blog! I surfed over from GUYK's.

Sorry you are not feeling well. This cold has been pretty fierce, and makes it easy to get sick and stay sick. Having to put up with the frustration of seeing Hussein as President certainly doesn't help.

JihadGene...thanks for stopping by...it pronounced O-Con-O-Moe-Walk...like 95% of Wisconsin towns it's Indian...

Hermit, the cold especially sucks since I seldom get one, guess I never full recovered from the one last month.

Man I had not listened to Tom Dooley in years, very cool. Sorry you are sick, if I only had 15 or 20 pounds to lose I would say screw that..........

Try DayQuil, it'll knock that cold out--trust me.

You still feeling sick? Hope not.

Thanks gang....I did 3 basketball games today, a Jr High double header, then tonight a JV Boys game....I am sweating like a pig, and the nasel crap is flowing....hopefully I'll have it kicked in a day or two.
