Hello My Friends, I hope all is well wherever you are. All OK here, although I am starting
a bit late tonight. My Home Care lady comes tomorrow and cleans the floors etc. I wash
the sheets from my bed, and Kerry helps remake it up with fresh sheets. Actually it was
nice and warm here today. I think we got to 18C which is about 64.4 F. So I did some
other washing and got it dry. All very exciting. My neighbor, Helen called in to see me.
I received the following item from my dear friend, Ann Adams today, so enjoy Thanks Ann.
An Indian Hug. ~ ~ This poem is very sweet.
If I could catch a rainbow, I would do it just for you
And share with you it's beauty, on the days that you feel blue.
If I could build a mountain, You could call your very owm;
A place to find serenity, A place to be alone.
If I could take your troubles, I would toss them in the sea,
But all these things I'm finding, are impossible for me.
I cannot build a mountain, Or catch a rainbow fair,
But let me be what I know best, A friend who's always there.
My son, Geoff sent this information about How to avoid the Flu. Thanks Geoff.
Eat right. Make sure you get your daily dose of fruit and vegetables.
Take your vitamins and bump up your Vitamin C.
Get plenty of exercise because it builds your immune system.
Walk for at least an hour a day. Go for a swim.
Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
Wash your hands often. If you can't, keep a bottle of antibacterial stuff around.
Get lots of fresh air. Open doors and windows whenever possible.
Try to eliminate as much stress in your life as you can. Get plenty of rest.
Take the doctor's approach. Think about it . . . .
When you go for a flu jab, what do they do first?
They clean your arm with alcohol . . . Why? Because Alcolhol KILLS GERMS.
So. . . . . .
I walk to the pub. (Exercise)
I put lime in my vodka . . . (Fruit.)
Celery in my Bloody Mary (veggies)
Drink outdoors on the patio . . .(fresh air)
Tell rude jokes and laugh . . . (eliminate stress)
Then I pass out. (rest)
The way I see it . . . If you keep your alcohol levels up, Flu Germe Can't Get You!!

After a club booking in the Midlands I had a few jars and then decided to look for some
decent digs. As it happened, due to the late hour, I could only find one boarding house
with a vacant sign. Pushing the door open and feeling rather tired I walked in.
"I've only got one room left," said the man behind the desk, "and you'll have to share
with another bloke, but . . . . ." "But what?" I asked.
"Watch his snoring," I was warned, "We've had complaints."
Reluctantly I took the room and the morning after I was met on the stairs by the desk
clerk. "How did you get on last night?" he wanted to know.
"Smashing," I told him. "Before I turned in last night I leaned across and kissed him and
he stayed awake all night."
