St. Kitts, Saint Kitts and Nevis
That old adage "feed a cold, starve a fever" is hockum, a crock, an old wives tale. I've been suffering the effects of a summer cold for the past 2 days. It's a miracle I've gotten away without one this long, what with all the coughing, hacking and sneezing on board. And if there were any truth to that old saying, I'd be cured by now...cause I've certainly been eating well. Unfortunately it's not doing anything for the symptoms.

Today we spent the day in St . Kitts and it was HOT...again. I don't know if it's because of the cold or not, but it FELT like the hottest day yet. Fortunately we were scheduled on a nice, relaxing excursion which required no physical exertion. We toured the entire island, starting on a bus and finishing on a train. Not being water people we have avoided doing the "booze cruise" type of excursion....but a "booze train" is something new and interesting! It was nice and cool on the top level of the train. The first time I've been cool outside in 2.5 weeks!

It's to bed early tonight with a $6 can of Pringles bought on board the ship. Gonna keep trying to "feed that cold"!!

The Fuss Budget today is zero!! I've been keeping a low profile what with not feeling 100%...every cloud has a silver lining!!

As a tour guide, I chuckled when I saw the "sleeper". So typical, I've learned to ignore & not take it personally!! Hope you start feeling better... Your name was mentioned at the club so get ready to "hurry hard" when you return!!

That's scary, Doreen! They didn't "elect" me for anything or "volunteer" me to take on some tasks in my absence, I hope!!
