I'm getting better....

First of all...
I am so very blessed.
I know this.

Many of you have been so kind and caring regarding
concern and suggestions for cold therapy/treatment.
I have tried many things that I have never tried before,
all of it helped.

Thank you!

so many of my friends
have brought over meals,
reading materials,
and flowers.

I started to think...
"maybe I am sicker than I think"
(really just a side effect of the meds, I suspect)
and then...
I started to remember this scene
from Monty Python's
Holy Grail,
where the plague has hit Europe during the crusades,
and there is a "pick-up service" for
"yer dead"

It is really quite sick, actually,
but that's what I have been.
And I laughed while watching this clip.

I warn you,
1970's humor is only for those of us
a) who lived through it
b) can handle really sick humor
c) have never really grown up

if you are any of these,
and maybe you can relate to
the old fellow who is
"feeling better".

I know I am....
thank you all


  1. Glad you are better! And the 70's were the best;)

  2. Glad you are getting better. I was born in '72 so I don't remember much of the 70's as far as humor. I have seen Monty Python, though, and think it is humorous!

  3. I'm married to an Englishman and was also born in 1955, so I totally get the humor and laugh hysterically whenever I see Monty Python! Especially this clip!

    FYI...hubby told me this scene was a comic slant on something that used to happen in England. Back when he was a child there actually was a person who would walk through town with a cart yelling "Rags & Bones" for people to bring out old clothes and what not. The kids would run away because it was such a scary site to them.
