Public Service Announcement: i cannot come out to play, today. My cold is not giving up, and it seems, if anything, to have taken a turn for the worse. Al’s cold has also disimproved. (He’s going to take his shift at the range. I hope they have sense enough to send him back home, again. Or to the walk-in clinic.)
I am going to lie here quietly and read/nap/read/&c. with a teapot and cup at my side.
Please continue without me.
