Oh to be in Antarctica…

… if it would get rid of this hack of mine.

I know my nephew, Matt, among others, are strong advocates of needing cold weather to freeze out the germs. I agree with this, on the whole. Since we have had minimal cold weather, here is my current ” boyfriend “.


You, no doubt, recognize the cough medicine bottle. I try to take it at night, since it has codiene in it. The prescription says take every four hours as needed. I have been off of dairy, drinking tea, lemonade and water, and yet the hacking persists. I usually have a cinnamon head candy in my mouth to try to quiet the cough. They just don’t warn you about a million hot showers and anelgesic balm for aching muscles from coughing. Personally, I’ ll wait for tomorrow and try coconut rum and pineapple juice.
