As usual I continue to get sick on trips. I made it to mom's illness free! YEa! But not the trip home. It was a most annoying trip too. 3 flights, NJ to Detroit to Salt Lake then home. Someone in Newark wating area was sick, she was coughing and hacking and sniffing. I has a mask on the entire trip and hoped that would keep me safe. THe flight from Detroit to Salt lake was delayed so we could wait for a navigator! They seemed unable to just take one from a plane there already and keep bumping them to the flights needing them till the waitd on one arrived. THat way no one would be late. But NO. So I missed my flight to Helena. There was a flight about to take off to Great Falls and I could get a stand by on that, so I checked with my neighbor who was picking me up and he did not mind the drive (75 minutes) to Great Falls, so I ran the length of the airport with a 35lbs packpack on to get to the flight. I was totally out of breath and just made it. Of course my luggage did not and it took over 24 hours to get it. By Tuesday I became sick. 3 covid tests negative, and it feels (still have it) like flu. I would just like to travel and NOT always catch something. Oh well. I spent the weekend mostly in bed feeling pretty bad. Today I feel a bit better, so hoping I am now on the med side of the flu!
John, how are Cheri and you doing? How is everything with Tim and Peggy? I hope good.

Hi David John and Peggy David sorry you had such a bad trip to return from visit with your mother. I did have a medical issue and was in the hospital on May 3/4 last week I should be alright I hope and by what the doctors say.Cats here here are all good. I hope Cheri is feeling good and doing well same for John and Peggy too. I am just taking it easy here. Later Tim
I'm so sorry you got sick. Never traveling by air, airports seem like a nightmare to me.
Cheri starts every day with plenty of energy but then runs down by the end of the day. We no longer have to get up 3 times in the middle of the night. Now that's down to about once a week. It's been so rough on her and there's plenty more to come. Last week she decided on new living room furniture. She found a good deal on what it was so $1000 later, we have new furniture. The biggest challenge there was getting the old furniture out and the new furniture in the house. We set the old furniture out in the yard for anyone to take as it still looked perfectly good, but then it rained on it for a week. It still looks great but if nobody picks it up, the city will haul it off this week.
The weather has been hot and cold, hot and cold, hot and cold, and this last week it rained every day, usually a light rain all day. Nice weather for getting sick, although I seem to be pretty much over whatever I had before. I guess I got it from the grandson. He works at McDonald's so he got Covid tested. Not Covid.
The furkids are all fine. Had an unusual day with Van Gogh a few days ago. Van Gogh always lays down with me face to face when I go to bed but after I go to sleep she always gets up. The other day she woke me up about the usual time laying face to face with me again, purring up a storm. She rarely purrs, maybe once or twice a year. Anyway, I finally got up and the first thing, she had knocked over a 44 ounce drink on the coffee table, narrowly missing a computer. Then I found that the grandson's dog had got out and drank all Van Gogh's water. That's why she knocked over Cheri's drink, trying to get something to drink. Then I went into the "red room", (my man-cave) and saw that Van Gogh had whorfed on the floor. That's something else she almost never does. Since then, everything's been perfectly normal. John
Tim, I hope you are okaty now then! I am sorry you were in the hospital!
It sure sounds like you are being kept busy by Van Gogh and the grandson's dog! I cannot imagine anyone wanting nice looking water logged furniture! Still, you never know...
Hope you are feeling better too David sorry you were sick. Tim
