Under the weather...


Roll call....... Cindy...Cindy...has anyone seen Cindy?
Nope.....she is home. Sick.

She has a head ache, sore throat, ears plugged, cough and really tired.
What does the Dr. have for this?
Maybe some of those old time mixtures really would work. Just a few suggestions that older people used to use.

Apply apple cider vinegar...
Two teaspoons of honey with meals...
One teaspoon of olive oil mixed with one teaspoon of garlic (now that sounds good!) Yuk...
Root of rhubarb worn on a string around your neck...
Beets soaked in berry wine (now we are talking)
Goose grease and turpentine.......Yuuuukkkkkk.......
Rub oil of sardines on your throat......(this actually works???)
Kerosene (are you kidding?) with or without sugar...
Skunk oil in teaspoon of sugar...

Never mind, I will just let it run its course.

I think letting it run its course sounds like the best option, the others could kill a person.
Hope you're better soon.

Hope you are feeling better by now! We had this a few weeks ago and decided to just Nyquil ourselves to death and sleep it off! No fun!!!
Love,
Becki and Tom

Get well ole lady and start cooking for poor Tom. I saw his picture in a fast food joint and he looked like he needs a good meal. Take care of yourself, you may make it to my age.
