Well, I wasn't feeling very well last week and I didn't get started looking at the participants of White Wednesday until Wednesday late afternoon. I was flat down on Saturday and Sunday. I had a flu shot a few weeks ago, how could I have the flu. I haven't had the swine flu shot so at first I was a little worried. OK, maybe this was a little much, I called my children and gave them instructions as to what I wanted each of them to do at my funeral. My oldest son ask me what I wanted to have served. Today is Monday and I have finally gotten down to my blog on the Faded Charms side bar. I don't have the strength to sit to the computer. SO I've pulled out my favorite TV show. My son just bought me season 9 of the Walton's. I am in Heaven, my pillow and quilt, an ice cold glass of Sprite and watching a Marathon of the Walton's. I should be OK.
Let me leave you with the Surgeon Generals latest symptoms of the SWINE FLU.

I am a 62 year young mother of 5 children, grandmother of 9 grandchildren and wife and friend to my John for 42 years. I love where I've been and I love where I'm going. I don't know any strangers because your all my friends. I have been touched by many angles in my life and I am grateful to be among so many wonderful people through blogging.
From My Heart to Yours
