December 26

      This was “Grin ‘n’ Bear It”

day as I chalked up one more

for staying in the house -- not

even poking my nose outside of

the door long enough to wonder

what became of the White Christmas

which never snuck upon us.

     Doc Sammis came by to pay

us a professional visit this

morning – examined me and

announced that I was recovering

from a severe case of the flu –

as though I hadn’t known it

all along.

     Even on vacation I had to

haul out my Statistics workbook

and tackle some of the problems

again – I set Dad to work on it

and that helped.

     Why did the long arm of nose drops,

cough medicine and thermometers have

to reach out and snare me?
