The Flu - in Stages

My first attack for many years of full-blown flu is finally, I hope, subsiding.

I have discovered that there are stages to the flu experienced in no particular order:

     * vices clamping the ribs
     * coughing, coughing and coughing
     * knives stabbing the throat
     * clammy sweating/high temperature
     * depression
     * blocked sinuses
     * no taste buds
     * all the above, all at once

So I haven't been around here much. I know you're wishing me better, thank you, thank you, but I've disabled the comments facility for a few weeks to try and avoid all those spam emails.

I'm going to take the rest of February off from the blog and I will return in March with Forsythia and daffodils in my hair and maybe even a Springlike spring in my step.

Take care and be sure to avoid the flu bug like the plague!
