Santa With the Flu
It is Monday and Christmas is this Thursday (like you did not know that). We had a very nice service yesterday and the same is true for Grace church in Albia. The Clark family is down with the flu and that of course leaves a big hole in our church attendance. The country is being warned that this flu season (why do we call it a season) will be a whopper. Apparently the medical community did not prepare a vaccine for the strain that is taking us all out.
I got an email from my cousin Darlene. She is down with the flu and I mean DOWN with the flu. She tells me she is a wee better today. Her brother died last week and I gave her my condolences. He was a nice man whom I only met once. I was visiting the nursing home and met him in the community room. Normal conversation was difficult for him because of his disability but we were able to communicate. I really enjoyed being around him. I am truly sorry he passed.
Sherry and I are going shopping in Des Moines today. It sounds crazy but I'm in. We'll see how it goes.
