Nixon, I wish that you lived close to me. The ethanol in the gasoline finally got to the rubber parts in my favorite little chain saw. Strange because I try to use ethanol free in all my small engines but all the fuel lines are definitely "mushy". I'll get it fixed sometime because I really like that little saw. We've been together a long time and created a mountain of sawdust together.

With all the spices and heat involved that should clear my gourd.
Lol
Emergen-C is a decent product. We did about 1.5 million samples of it last year. I find it works best if used with a semisweet soda or club soda. I use Swepes Ginger ale.

It's more palatable and the bubbles seem to help clear the mucus in your throat. Red raspberry is my favorite flavor. But, it is expensive stuff.

Yeah I know.
I probably paid more for it than I would a script.

I'm lucky on that as somehow a portion of those 1.5 million samples got "misplaced"

But look at it this way. At about a $1.29 per dose they are cheaper than a Lattie'

Online drooling over boats. I went down to my assistive devices supplier to get fitted for a wheelchair, new lift recliner, and talk about options for a lift to get in and out of the truck for rough days. Then I went over to talk to my occupational therapist about my upcoming medication to settle my accident once and for all.

This afternoons task was cleaning up melted dog poop and ice in the driveway. No matter how diligent I am at cleaning dog poop throughout the winter,there's still a poop bomb in the driveway every spring.

Canadian eh!!!

It's a little Efco (?) 12" bar that I bought from Northern Tool years ago. I think that it's made in Italy. I like it because it is small and light and can handle all the limbing and trimming. When it gets outmatched, I fire up one of the bigger, heavier ones.

I found a dealer about 25 miles away that can repair it but darn, his labor cost is extortionate!!! I may just buy the new fuel lines and do it myself but now that the weather has turned nicer for about a week, I plan to be darned busy.

Feeling a tad better today.
At least I can breathe and the appetite is beginning to return.
