This year it came early- Tuesday I was starting to feel it- today and for the next three days, if this follows the standard pattern- I will be sick- traditional flu- sometimes that takes me out for a weekend of the run- sometimes it clears up fast. The only blessing is that usually once I have had it- I;m not sick the rest of the winter. I get a yearly flu shot- I believe it keeps me well the rest of the winter.
I used to rail against the unfortunate timing, th eunfairness, the curse, etc etc- I dislike missing weekends in the Palace de Moo. But since this happens every year I just have to accept it as part of the process.
I have been told I kiss too many cousins- and I try to not drink from flasks- but I seem to be weak. Even with washing hands often and trying to be cleaver about it, I just can't resist some of my cousins warm greetings.. So I'm paying the price tonight- (cough, sniffle- HONK!)
At least its traditional.

|I wondered why I missed you at faire...t'wasn't the same without your banter. Feel better, lad!|
|Yeah the cousin kissing is germy :-) although I can't seem to resist especially when I haven't seen my friends in sooo long! I have caught colds after a few faires.|
|Sir, how can the Capetown & Cairo RR ever get off the ground if you're calling in sick! Dammit, Man! What kind of swindler are you! I say you lost your shirt last night over cards and too much brandy and you're too embarrassed to come show your face around town! Rogue!|
I've explained *in detail* the difficulty here. Because HE kissed the cousins... I cannot now kiss him.
He has such numerous and affectionate cousins. ;-)
Lamlee- Honestly I thought that Full House would win the table- and I do remember something Mr Woo said as he started to laugh, - the substance at the bottom of the glass seemed a bit bitter- I was about to mention that to Mr Moriarity when I blacked out- and awoke the next day- shirtless and shoeless. In some flop house.
In the end- I blame that woman- you know the one- I tell you she is a plauge carrier- I must stop having riding lessons with her. From now on I am swearing off cards at Mr Woo's , late night brandy and all forms of riding instructoresses. I will begin to attend church regularily and will sign a temperance pledge.
MY full energies will be poured into the success of the Railroad.
Just as soon as I recover mty strength.
Naturally I will have to stop by and say goodbye to everyone- hmmm- on second thought I will delay the church attendance a few weeks so I can finalize my dealings with Mr Moriarity.
and I was hoping to get a bit more training on the gallop.
