At least now I know…

I could survive for 57 seconds chained to a bunk bed with a velociraptor

Well, it IS funny… Sort of.

I stayed in bed until 9:00 with this wretched cold, but no velociraptor was in sight. Gerry’s in bed, he’s been aching and hurting for a few days, although I think his is partly cold, partly his cancer, and partly his overexertion this past week with his buddy in town.

What I have is not so much an “achoo!” kind of cold, but an aching, stuffy, every part of my body hurts and I want to sleep for a week cold. Is this the ‘flu? Yeah, maybe this is what Gerry has, too. I’ll take him up some tea.

While I’m just being silly (and achey) wouldn’t you love to see THIS on COPS? Never say I don’t live in a very exciting corner of the world.

One of my ancillary cousins – a cousin I love dearly, but who was a bit more distanced than my “sister” Jan was to me – is losing her battle with cancer, too. Patsy’s been fighting colon cancer for eight long years – she’s a strong and remarkable person. It’s come and stayed, slept, wakened, and now it’s back with a roar. I love Patsy very much – I stayed with her and her husband for a few days while in WV last time I was there.

Of course, I am feeling more torn about not going to WV, more that I really SHOULD be there – just to see her and give her a hug. We had a sensational visit when I was down in October, lots of laughing and just general silliness. She’s a riot, I’m a stitch, and when the two of us are together we need to put on our depends.

So think of Patsy for a bit – I swear, isn’t reading my blog like checking in on the “relatives with cancer report”?

Self Awareness Alert: I realized when perusing Shannon‘s blog yesterday that I’m so SELF centered on my blog, I hardly ever mention anyone else’s blog – me, me me. Oy.

Well, me and the velociraptors.
