Ladies

I have a cold.  We are still at my sis in laws place in Bloomington and heading towards Branson this afternoon with a stop along the way. We were going to make the 425 mile drive in one day. But changed our minds and will do it in 2 days so I can rest.

Here's the thing. Does anyone have a health situation with the immune system is delicate?  The last thing I want to do is give anyone my cold. I can always borrow Nana's sewing machine and stitch away in our hotel room.

Deb, wouldn't be a good idea for us to be table buddies. I am SO bummed. Haven't had a cold in I can't remember when.

thanks Barbara. You're prepared for anything! I do have a mask, picked it up yesterday to protect my sis in law. I'm also living with a bottle of hand sanitizer. Dr Oz (who drives me nuts but George watches him!) says a cold is more contact spread and not airborne unless you sneeze on someone.

I will fortify myself with foltx - it is what I take when I am going to church each Sunday and if you are taking Zicam or Cold Eze - hopefully you will be better quickly.  I have a compromised immune system from my RA and the biologic drugs that they gave me.  I won't be able to hug you but we can yell across the room to each other.

Judy, I am not afraid of your cold.  I will be exposed on the plane anyway. I will still be your table buddie!

I am reserving a car and will drive myself tomorrow night.  The flight time is bad and I didn't know the airport was so far away. Also, you never know if the flight will be on time. See you all sometime tomorrow night :-)

I see the last posting was Friday morning, so I'm guessing Barbara is there by now, so that's two quilters.  Anyone else pulling in this evening?

We left 'Nawlins mid-morning, and we followed the "Great River Road" up through Louisiana and Arkansas.  We're holed up just south of Little Rock this evening, and we should pull into Branson by noon tomorrow.

We are 150 miles north in Columbia, Missouri. We decided to take a slight detour when leaving Bloomington. I told George there was a wonderful quilt shop in Hannibal, MO that I'd like to go to. He said "How much would that add to our trip? I mumbled "75 miles". He shook his head but was OK with that.

The Hickory stick in Hannibal is a wonderful shop and I spent a bit of money. Not much. At least that George knows about. Small bag so he figures it's about $10 worth. Why disillusion him?

See everyone tomorrow. The Zicam seems to be working and I don't feel bad. Definitely have a cold so will use Barbara's masks to protect Thea.

Excited to get there and get sewing and playing games! Bring on the strip poker. We are leaving Thursday afternoon, so hopefully we'll get the games in before then.

Waaaaa!  Are you all sewing already?  We could have made it tonight if we had pushed it.

Wish we were on the road!  Bill says we can do in one day but that was before he got his cold.  He is taking medicine and hopefully will be better soon as he has surgery on the 11th.  I'll probably have to do a lot of the driving so I won't last long tomorrow night if I do.
