Uh Oh...hope it's not the evil flu bug. By the way, WHAT are you not disclosing?

Austan said...

Oh I hope not. Throat, nose, eyes, shoulders all out of order.

Now if I said, it'd be disclosing!

mybabyjohn/Delores said...

Feeling any better now?

Austan said...

Three Jamesons later, not so bad. Strider's gone out, am watching rom-coms and soon to pass out. Thanks, Lawless. Hey, have you heard from Rory? Last I knew he was going to hospital.

mybabyjohn/Delores said...

I haven't heard anything. Is it for his arm? I sure hope they can help him.

Austan said...

Yeah, he said he couldn't take the pain so he was going to the hospital, and that's the last I heard. Hope he's okay.
