Can You Really Cough It Up Loud and Strong?

What a friend calls her "wailing wall". She's in the process of tuck-pointing it.

So, I woke up today feeling like my throat was being ripped from the inside by razor blades. Since I knew strep was going around and I didn't think my co-workers would appreciate me spreading it to them, I decided to stay home today and get tested for it and sleep most of the day...Oh, and drink as much Chai tea as I can stand, and I can stand a lot, believe me. It doesn't look like I have strep, so I'm going to try really hard to go to work tomorrow.

I think I'll make this super, duper short tonight, so I can sleep even more. I was going to blog about some stuff I watched lately, but I'll have to save that for tomorrow.

I just noticed on my site meter that someone googled: "fort madison library caught with someone looking at porno."

I wish I did have a blog post about that, but from the guys I know from Ft. Madison, and I seem to know an inordinate amount, that someone could be anyone and everyone. I may have to google that same thing and see what the real story is. FMDM's folks are always listening to the police scanner down there, maybe he could find out for me...

Okay, I'll take my leave now and try not dream about people getting caught looking at porn in the Ft Madison library.

I had that bug recently. Try gargling with 2 tsp. of salt in as hot a water as you can stand. It does a good job of chasing it away.

Feel better! Hey, what is tuck-pointing?

Very relieved for you that you don't have strep! Get that throat to feeling better.

My coworker tested for strep too, but he didn't have it either. Just had a rotten bug.

I ended up with a cold on the hottest day of the year. My throat is sore, but it's because I've been snoring more and more.

i always thought my crazy german grandma was strange for listening to a police radio (always on on her kitchen counter)...but after working as a humane officer & being required to be on the radio the whole time--it's kinda fun to listen to all the crap going on in the world--the weird stuff not the tragic stuff.
(ps--i'll see what finian can do about your "situation" on the hush hush. he put out a hit on two grade schoolers at the playground yesterday....)

Thanks. I don't remember any of my dreams last night, but that's sweeter than what I was afraid of having.


Here is the definition: # Tuckpoint - (1) to point masonry with a flush mortar joint that approximates the color of the masonry units and a mortar of contrasting color that is shaped into a thin strip. (2) see repoint.


And it is a rotten bug too. I hope he didn't give it to you.


It sucks to be sick when it's warm outside. IT's been icky and rainy out for the last few days here, so I don't mind being housebound.


I shouldn't be contagious anymore.

Mighty Jo,

I'm glad I don't have a scanner or I'd listen to it way too often.


You might want to make sure the porn looker atter isn't kin.

Mr MAnuel,

Thanks. I feel better already.
