    Please forgive me for not responding as I usually do...Been diagnosed with pneumonia (a new one to me), and between lack of sleep because of the cough and generally feeling like crap, I try to keep an eye on things, but am not doing much responding ('cept mentally...and that ability is even more limited than usual!!) Geeze! Even my lighting candels is lipping!!

    Hope to be up and running again soon.

    Meanwhile I am sooo glad to see so many others chiming in and making sure none of our sheep get lost! Good work, Guys!

    Well Crap is right! Here's to a speedy recovery!

    When I had pneumonia a year ago, I found that a "wee bit of the Irish" before bed really helped me get to sleep! Of course, my dear Grandmother swore by the stuff. She said that it would "cure" just about anything that ailed you! It would either cure you or make you just not give a darn about how bad you felt!

    Take care and get well soon!

    Dearest Rachel!

    Prayers for a speedy recovery. Pneumonia is not fun any time, but it's really the pits to be sick during the nice summer weather--after all, we don't get enough of it here in MI as it is--summer is WAY too short!

    Blessings, Di

    Oh Rachael,

    I'm so sorry that you're dealing with pneumonia. I hope that by now you have recovered.

    You are a very giving and selflish person. I hope hubby is helping out.
