And I repeat - TAKE CARE OF YOU!

That's some mighty purty goldenrod...

Roses and goldenrod and a faint hint of leaf color changes on the top of my maple tree.

"Sinkin' spells"...

So THAT'S what they're called! I figured it was the doldrums, the, shivers, the blues...

Glad you were able to tell the docs what to do, or what not to do...

"then we won't send EMS to your door tonight."
Heheheh, that kicked you in high gear, didn't it!

So...you all better now? No shivering, no jammies on to keep you extra warm?

Had I known this was going on I'd have sent you some home-made tater soup...it's the law around here. I'll send you the story of why, someday. It's gonna be a long winter, you might need it.

Still shiverin' Shoe, but I'm all wrapped up in the most wonderful electric throw that Polly sent me last year. It's not a full sized blanket, but I reckon it just fits me!!

Oh boy. Tater soup. I haven't made any in so long. But I love it. Bet our recipes are nearly the same. Mine has been handed down for a few hundred years now, how about yours?

I'm thinkin' tomorrow might just be a good tater soup cooking day.
Thanks for reminding me.

Should go well with Pedialyte flavored Gatorade.
Ya reckon?

Hah! Yeh, I reckon Pedialyte would be a good chaser. Or at least keep it by your bedside so you don't have to get out from under the covers.

So the docs are sure you don't have the crud or something? If you're like me you probably have no carbs to keep you warm. And yes, it was 71º in my shoffice last night and I was cold. Or cool. Guess it happens when humidity is high or something

tater soup! My mom made the best tater soup in the world, and I have no idea how to make it.

Is y'alls thin or thick? (hers was thin, and delicious, with lots of diced spuds, and milk & butter, I think, but no real clue)

I'm so glad you're swimin' in Gatoraid and don't need a life preserver thrown at ya! I guess somebody needs to see what you're up to when you get too quiet... (kinda like children, huh?)
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
