Cherished readers, I feel like sh*t today. I can't even make me knit because my hands are cold, clammy and quite useless. Everytime I cough it feels like I am going to spit my brains out (sorry for the imagery and I am not really sure how that could actually happen), I have used more kleenexes than anyone on earth could count (thank heavens for the 6-pack ultrasoft we bought two weeks ago) and I alternate between two bedcovers and sitting around in a t-shirt. As you can see I am trying not to lose my sense of humor - though I don't know how long I can keep it up. So thanks again for all your comments and well-wishes, I am going to make good use of them.
Deborah, should you read this: I added a comment with an instruction for the neck-thingie on the Man-model, model-man post.
