I have been down with the flu for several days. This is a particularly nasty variant that has been going through the mountains. I didn't get a flu shot, but it doesn't seem to have mattered as several people who did that work with my wife had it too. I think it passes through the schools.
I am just starting to get back to human status and will try to start visiting blogs again this evening.
It has been a tough few days. Getting the flu is not something you want to do at a time when you are the only person at home.
