I'm not a real Cowboy, but I play one in the movies.

For the first time since I retired almost 4 years ago, I've caught a cold. So much for my hermit lifestyle keeping me isolated from cold germs; I should have worn rubber gloves to the gun show and wiped down the new toy with alcohol when I brought it home. Yeah, that wouldn't have raised any eyebrows. Woke up with a scratchy throat and runny nose. Had a Cloroseptic cough drop and a cup of tea for breakfast. Leftover tuna loaf for lunch, which came up shortly afterwards. For dinner, improvised chicken soup (ramyon chicken flavor packet boiled in water with boneless chicken breast pieces, a spoonful of peas and a handful of frozen french fries. Ate the broth, mostly. I hope there was some chicken fat in the mix, because I think that's what makes chicken soup so good for colds.

I threw a saucepan full of water on the stove and started boiling...ought to add some humidity to the house. I hold my head over it and breathe in the's really cleared up the rattle in my chest.

    Remember, feed a cold, feed a fever, feed athlete's foot, feed the ferrets - give me raisins or I'll keep kicking the plexiglass.
