Allergies? Laundry and Pizza

DeBary, FL.

It was Friday when Jim's head started blocking up and he started sneezing coughing along with sore throat and a runny nose. Jim has a lot of trouble with allergies and the pollen count has been sky high lately so he figured that was the problem. He had also been laying on the ground, under Bobbie T to get those chair bolts removed, so he figured that also made it worse.

Now, I'm definitely not an expert on human ailments, but I'm kind of doubting if it was allergies or not! He's still coughing and sneezing, but the nose and throat are getting better, so I'm thinking he just caught a bad cold somewhere.

So,  ,  ,  ,  , Friday, he didn't do much but rest and drink lots of fluids. He also took some vitamin C, which he figured couldn't hurt and used some throat lozenges for his sore throat.

Yesterday, he and Linda loaded laundry in the back of CLT and took it over to the house. Once there, Linda did the laundry, (3 loads worth), and Jim went through some boxes to find a few things that he and Linda will be needing when we head North two weeks from today and rested in his Barcalounger.  ; )

One of the main things that he wanted to find was their weather radio, since we'll be getting up into tornado territory in the spring when there's a good chance of a storm. Besides some other small items, he also loaded his air compressor in the back of CLT. CLT will have to carry it now because there's no compartment in Bobbie T that large enough.

It was getting late buy the time the laundry was done so before they left the house, they called the local pizza place here in DeBary to order a pizza. Then, they stopped by and picked it up on the way back here to Highbanks.

Jim's still doing some coughing and sneezing and the weather report doesn't doesn't sound too good, so I doubt if much will be happening around here today. Probably, Jim and Linda will just kick back and watch TV or something.

Did you know that Napoleon Bonaparte was afraid of cats?
