A note to Carol: I'm sorry I've been so slow getting your painting listed on my blog. My family and I have all been suffering from the flu over the past week or so -- I can't even remember how long because it seems someone has been sick forever here. I was the last to catch it, and I think I am about finished with it now. Listen up, Everyone! I am a silly person when it comes to shots -- I am terrified of them! Don't put off getting your flu shots, fear of needles or not! Flu is not a pleasant way to spend a week; a shot only hurts for seconds. Don't put it off; I promise you the flu is much, much worse than the shot.
