I've Been Sick

February 28th I finally got sick. Everyone around me has or had the crud. A co-worker even had pneumonia. It started in the evening and I missed work Monday, Tuesday, and half of Wednesday. On Saturday the 7th I ended up at Urgent Care with an ear infection on the left side. I missed Church the 1st and only went to the first third of Church on the eighth. I worked all last week, caught some naps both days last weekend and it looks like I have it beat. The worst part has been my ear is plugged so I feel like half of my head is under water. The first week was really lousy as my head felt like it would explode from the pressure. Enough of that.

I have been working on a new mail box. It is shaped like a traditional barn, made of steel (of course) and will be mounted on a 10 inch I-beam for the post. The flag will be an alpaca or goat head and the latch for the door will be a rooster. I'll post pix when it is complete. DMP
