The Full Bobbi Breakfast

     So, still kinda sick -- I was okay at the Indy Hamfest but the sinus/chest congestion came roaring back in tha afternoon and evening -- but I'm working the early-early shift and filling in at the controls for a co-worked with an ailing spouse, so there's no resting up.

     That leaves only one alternative: the Full Bobbi.  Akin to The Full English or The Full Scottish, except on the right side of the road:
     A small "breakfast steak" consisting of a nice, thick filet mignon sliced into two slightly thicker than usual brekky steaks, and shared or one saved for later.
     A slice of applewood-smoked bacon. Oh, okay, two.
     A fried egg.
     Fried mushrooms.
     Tomato -- several grape tomatoes, sliced and sprinkled with Italian seasoning mix and let set for at least ten minutes.  Best to do these at the very start of cooking.  Basil works about as well.
     Toast -- hand-made rye today.
     Coffee and juice.

     At the very least, there should be enough additional iron, zinc and vitamin C to help me get through the day.

Running a marathon? Harvesting an acre or two?
My, my!

Recovering from this whatever-it-is *feels* like running a marathon -- and at that, I may have dodged the worst. Thursday night, the spouse of one of my co-workers came home from work, started feeling chilled and lousy, took to bed, and piled in the blankets. When her chills flipped over to fever, she had scary seizure, as in just not there and then not knowing anyone or much else, and by the time he got her to the hospital, her temperature was *down* to 103. She had the same fever and chills and so on I did, while slowly starting to recognize family members; she's fully oriented as of Saturday evening, but still in the hospital with what he medical marvels are callings, "Some kind of viral infection."

So it could have been worse.

On the other hand, I didn't get much sleep last night and have been coughing and hacking and etc-ing truly nasty stuff from my sinuses since returning home from the hamfest. Might not have been such a great idea to go but I sure didn't want to miss it. So things could be better..
