What began as a slight sore throat a little more than a week ago, morphed over the next several days into a raging case of tonsillitis. I’ve been in bed most of the week, only moving to the sofa as the drugs kicked in. This sucks in so many ways, but especially so as Autumn officially begins today (in the northern hemisphere) and we are still at camp. Summer is over, and it’s time to move on.
The good news is that I have friends who answered the call to arms and helped me get out the final Camp podcast this week. Also, through the miracle of antibiotics, I am on the mend. Don’t ever diss the Auntie B’s. My great grandfather died from pneumonia at the age of 47, because antibiotics weren’t invented yet. A sobering thought…
Anyway, Tonia says she can sense a return of health by the increase in the general level of my bossiness. (I don’t know what she means. I’m not in the least bit bossy. My ideas are just the best.) Nevertheless, I am still quite easily tired, and would never have been able to get this episode out were it not for the extraordinary kindness of these people:
The Tyrtle Family Players, comprising Todd Tyrtle from Quirky Outtakes, and Sage Tyrtle from Quirky Nomads; Zabet Stewart from The Anti Craft; Guido Stein from Itâ€™s a Purl Man; David Reidy from Sticks and String; Violet, from Lime and Violet; Heather Ordover from Craftlit; and Katherine Matthews from Purl Diving. Thank you all so much for coming to my rescue this week on such short notice. I owe you.
