It started about 36 hrs ago with a slight sore throat but no other symptom. I looked it up online and found that to have swine flu rather than another type of flu, you must have a fever and body aches, and I had neither. By early yesterday evening the slight fever hit and I developed a bit of a cough so I went to bed early. This morning I have the feeling that laryngitis isn't far away. I am still in denial about the swine flu, but time will tell I guess. What in the world will I do cooped up in this 5th wheel alone for a week, and without any computer amusement except in the morning. I sure hope I didn't give it to my grandsons!
It rained heavily last night and this morning is very mild. As usual, all the geese on the lake take off when Lady and I come into sight, and their wings flapping in unison sounds like a drum roll.
Thanks to each and every person who commented on my computer problems. I had originally hoped I could salvage my desktop (I love the monitor, if nothing else) as I am so familiar with the XP operating system. I have come to realize that it is not really salvageable, nor is the laptop, so whether Mac or PC I will want something that isn't so out of date. I had a shopping trip planned for the coming weekend but that's out of the question now.
