CHRONICLES: Succumbing to the Sickness

There's been a pretty awful cold making its rounds in Ketchikan. After claiming Lyss and Malcolm's health for a few days, my co-worker Craig, it's finally caught up with me. I'm now sitting on my couch watching Malcolm deleriously tired and feverish. At least, for me, Malcolm is keeping me company in his excellent Star Wars comic hoodie. Cars 2 is playing in the background, but neither of us are really watching. He'd rather play with his toys, and I'm probably going to have a cup of tea and read a book.

The weather here has been beautiful for the past couple of days. It's been chilly, but sunny and dry for the most part. The BattleWagon is still running well, despite some electrical drain that requires a jump start nearly every time I get into the damn thing. I still have dreams of converting that thing to 4-wheel-drive. Sigh...
