I think I'm high on cold n flu tabs. Sore throat, ear ache, general body ache, yearning for chicken broth. Yep, I think I'm getting sick, damn it. I don't really like cold n flu tabs & would much rather go try a nap, but there's no-one to look after the office this week so I'll just have to soldier on.
We have visitors as well which makes feeling sick crapper. When I was a teenager, on the farm we had international agricultural exchange students to help out on the farm for 6 - 8 months depending on which program they'd signed up on. We fed & lodged them & paid a minimum wage, while they had a food, a family to live with, work & the opportunity to travel.
Our 3rd student was A.M. who's on a trip her now with her Dad for their joint 50 & 70th birthdays respectively from Quebec. She was last here 25 years ago; I was sweet 16. Probably not that sweet if you ask my ma.
She's still as animated & sweet as I remembered her. And Bless her if she didn't bring with her for us to keep, 3 letters my Grandpa wrote to her after she went home; they were written in 89, 9o & 94. I might publish them at some point if I think they are still interesting enough.
Anyhoo. I better get my delirious butt back to work. Sniff.
