Knocked down, but not out
In a posting just after Halloween, I noted I had caught some variety of a local flu bug but I had gotten myself past it and forged forward with my ambitious projects to bigger and better things. Well, I was wrong. I hadn’t payed the nasty virus what it was really due, and I just suffered a big time relapse. I’ve been out of circulation for a couple of weeks. So, while I haven’t been making any noise for the last while, I am still around. And, after finally breaking down and getting some professionally administered anti-biotics (medications which I only take modestly and seldom), I am on the mend.
Right at the onset of this relapse, Yahoo did one of those automatic updates that wiped out a large percentage of my contacts so that has even put me more out of touch. I am in the process of a rebuild so if I seem unresponsive, I am. I have a whole bunch of phone numbers to sort out and re-enter.
The one really good aspect of this episode is that my Los Gatos lady friends who came to my humble abode to tend to my sick room supplies were, of course, even more beautiful than normal and, oh, so sympathetic, feeling so sorry for this hoarse, little and festering Rumpelstiltskin who had too much a resemblance to the uni-bomber. Thanks ladies, you know who you are. I’m proud to have such friends in such a busy and crazy time (and your phone numbers not obliterated by Yahoo).
While I’m probably not going to be real prolific with my posts as I recoup, I’m just slowed down, not out.
Have fun, all, and thanks,
