Bleargh

Am (and have been) sick as a dog, and an overly-full work schedule is not helping. Posting will resume as soon as possible.

Rest up, Franklin, figures, the weather finally starts to think about getting nice and an illness comes and knocks the socks off of you...Be well

Jenn said...

Hope you feel better soon. Is nursing the sick one of Dolores' many skill sets? Or will she at least stop smoking in the apartment?

Sorry to hear your under the weather.

Hot lemon, honey and a drop of rum several times a day can work wonders!

Sending you one of my Great-grandmother's hot toddies.

Cup of hot tea
Lemon and Sugar/Honey to taste
One Shot of whiskey (your choice)
Mix and Drink
Repeat as needed nightly

GUARANTEED to knock you on your butt and get a good night sleep. She swore by them, had one each night, and lived to be 97. I can't remember her ever sick.

Oh, please rest and get better! We have spent the past month beginning with the flu 3/24 and morphing into pneumonia for my husband and 86 year old mother, who lives with us. She ended up in the hospital for a week, and is now in rehab, briefly. Simultaneously, I was healing the stump on a black rescue sheep, Kali Baa (perhaps a relative of Dolores?), who lost a foot. I lost a goat two weeks from kidding to P.Tenuis, and I've been treating a traumatic eye injury of unknown origin on our pony. Too much! Take care of yourself. Sleeping and moaning allowed.

rho said...

if it is that cough thing going around be careful - lots of people in our area have had it morph into pneumonia....


have I said here how much I HATE word verification.... they are really really hard with dyslexia... and spell check is no help at all with them LOL

Sharon J said...

For the love of sheep, don't cough on Dolores! One of you has to be out there earning the rent money.

Aidan said...

Sorry you are not feeling well.

You didn't by any chance recently name Dolores as beneficiary on your life insurance, did you? You might want to skip that "special, soothing almond tea" she's offering you at night.

anneonymousone said...

Maybe Dolores will bring you over a kind, handsome, smart medical professional who believes in the laying on of hands and wants to learn how to knit.

Karen S said...

Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

blueyed wench said...

Feel better :(

Jess said...

I hope you're feeling better soon!

Crochet Goddess said...

I hope you feel better soon.

Jeanne said...

Ick. I feel for you. It got me, too. All semester, I managed to avoid all the snot-embued classmates, until last week. *sigh* Let's all get better soon now, heah?

cindy & baxter said...

Hope you feel better soon.

Mary said...

I'm reading a book, Later, At the Bar by Rebecca Barry and came across this line:
"he spent the rest of the time in his apt watching TV and crocheting, a skill he'd picked up in jail." Good to know that not only knitting is taught in jail.

Hope you're feeling better.

Obviously if wishing you well could make you so, you'd be in perfect condition...but here's another get well wish to add to the pile.

Ted said...

Do you remember this post, Franklin?

Geez, what's up in the blogosphere? You're sick, the Yarn Harlot's sick, I'm sick ...

I hope you feel better soon. If you have any friends who practice Reiki, get them over there right quick! (I wouldn't be surprised if Dolores is a Reiki Master).

Christopher said...

Feel Better, Franklin!

I'm very interested to know how much you enjoyed Eleanor's books and if you ever did any research on her background.

Agen Sbobet said...

I've been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

Agen Ibcbet said...

I like what you guys are up also. Such intelligent work and reporting! Keep up the superb works guys I've incorporated you guys to my blogroll. I think it will improve the value of my site :).
