A little over 800 miles and 13 hours for me. But I'm thinking about it.

Yeah Dan....Billy is probably at the Rib Joint now chewing on some Texas BBQ and watching Football.... My Daughter and son-in-law are up in Oakland right now at the Raiders and Baltimore Ravens game. My son-in-lawis a Ravens fan. I told them BOTH to be careful in Oakland...Especially if the Ravens win. Oakland is a very rough area. Good thing is that both my daughter and son in law have CCW permits because they both are in law enforcement.

Sorry guys but today. I am stuck home with Pneumonia. Eating chicken noodle soup. The local guy where rmchambers and I had lunch. Is still in his shack,new building is supposed to open next month. The trap across the street (Woody's) is still open. Selling dried out beef. Locals don't eat there.

New place in Madisonville 20 miles down the road is supposed to be good. They also have one run by a black church in town. Doesn't look like much. The pit master can make the meat fall off the bone.Once you go in,you don't want to leave. The wives cooking the sides can take you back. To when you were a kid in Texas on the farm. They make a blackberry and peach cobbler that could start a war. They have cots out back if you need a nap.

If I get lost enough on the way that I am anywhere close to you, I'll surely need someone to help drive.


Get well soon, Billy. Ditch the soup and go get some real food.

Thanks guys. Funny thing is. I didn't feel that bad until last Monday. Then the bottom fell out.

When I had a cold I'ld heat up can of Cambells chicken and gumbo soup. Heated it to boiling then immediately put the pot on table and hung my head over it inhaling the steam and ate the soup. Worked great but I think the steam did me better than the soup. Here in winter I put up the heat to 79 that helped a lot too.

We're pulling for you, Get better. Best wishes.

When you start using your furnace, the air gets drier so try to keep your Relative Humidity around 35 to 40% especially if you have nasal or head cold problems. Winter time is coming so use a humidifier to keep the humidity up.
Just saying---------------.

Good Morning Billy:

I hope you are feeling a bit better this morning. My wife had pneumonia once and she was a bit older than you. Antibiotics and rest helped her get better.

I hope the weather is nicer where you are. It is very dark and rainy here today.

I assume you like soups. A suggestion: If you have a Olive Garden restaurant nearby, perhaps someone can bring you over a bowl of their homemade minestrone soup. I think it would boost you energy level and help you feel better.

Just a thought. We are going out to lunch there today.

Hang in there, Billy

Leon
