Sneezing Along…

Sneeze1

One thing about leaving family after Thanksgiving is that you risk catching that winter cold from being around so many others who are around others of which someone catches something and soon it is spread all through most of the group.

Shortly before we left I knew I was getting it.  However, I used my remedy of rinsing and gargling with the Original Listerine Mouthwash (it will kill any and all germs), and Marcia loads me up on Vitamin C.  So I am down to the worse part of the cold, bypassing most of the sore throat type of stuff, and that is a basic head cold, which for me means, I can sneeze anytime.  Now my sneezing is not like this little guy above…and when one is coming on, not much can be done about it like Sneezy’s friends do for him.  No, my sneezing is more like….

….this guy here.  And can you imagine having three, four, five of these back to back?  Well, yesterday while driving I feel one coming on, and very quickly, I do six of them non-stop.  I think six while driving is a record…but after we got settled in at the TwentyNine Palms RV Resort in Twentynine Palms, Ca, and after Marcia had settled down for an early nights sleep as she tries to keep this cold away from her, I have eight of them…waking her and every creature within our confines (and perhaps outside too).  Bubba jumps down from his roost in the driver’s seat…Skruffy, who is watching over dad in Marcia’s chair, puts both feet up on my arm and looks at me like, “What the heck was that!”, and Marcia awakens from her early sleep wondering if we had just had an earthquake or something.

Two hundred more miles to Yuma….

  1. Sounds like you attacked that cold and kept it to the minimum! John sneezes at least five times EVERY time he sneezes. His record is seven! Drives me crazy! Your poor animals and Marcia!

    1. New record for me, had a seven sneeze attack today while driving, although I think the six from yesterday were more severe. Marcia had the window down to take a few pictures, and it hit me quick and hard!

    1. I think you got yours real early this year due to the bingo crowd...had we left a week earlier, I think I would have dodged this one...Marcia is no fighting the start of one.
