This is the first time Aimee's gotten sick since leaving Thunder Bay. Suspiciously enough, we think Dean passed the cold onto her when he was visiting from Thunder Bay. Hmmmm.

We knew it had to happen sooner or later. Neither one of us has gotten sick since our last visit to Thunder Bay,
so we were overdue for our autumnal cold.
Aimee was the chosen one to catch the bug this time, which is good. After all, if I get sick, we lose our only driver.
But at least we had a mom around. And what a mom... "Oh, are you sure you should be going anywhere? Here's some
tea, make sure you get some fluids into you. Here, have some potato chips. You should probably stay another night
just to be safe. If you keep moving, you'll just stay sick. There there..."
And we didn't complain. At first, Aimee was saying, "oh, sniffle snuff, I can make it, we have to make it to New
Orleans, snuffle snorf." But the short trip from the bed to the bathroom put her back in her place.
I didn't complain either. I got a chance to catch up on the site, and Mel the Jeep got a much needed and well deserved
rest. Not only that, but we had dozens of opportunities to get the dirt on our tried and true friend, Alissa, direct
from her mom. Heh heh.
The verdict? Phooey. According to her mom, she was a good kid and never did anything wrong. Humph. Should have called

We weren't planning on staying today, but Barbara was right. We had laundry to do. So while Aimee stayed in bed, Kev slaved away at the site. We're still not caught up though.
