Countdown Interrupted

Goldurnit, I had to stay home today with the beginnings of a cold. I hated to burn the sick leave, but I'm hoping I might nip this before it becomes a real monster cold. I'll probably spend the weekend feeling miserable. Goldurnit.

I think this means I still have 29 days to go before retirement. Work days, that is.

My illo today shows Senator C. Estes Kefauver in a coonskin cap. Estes was famous for his committee's public inquiry into organized crime and he was from Tennessee, as was Davy Crockett.

Estes, Estes Kefauver, King of the Wild... Nope. Sorry, it just doesn't work.

Get well soon, Cap'n!

Sick too. I still resent only my brother got one.
