    i hate colds, but since i quit smoking in 1998 after 41 years of doing it, i hardly ever get a cold. but this poem takes me back to when i did. but it was a very cute little piece you wrote.

    Hey, "Sneezy," I hope you're feeling better today. Colds usually only last a few days. The flu takes its toll for weeks. Keep smiling -- do enjoy your sense of humor. Love, Carolyn

    Wittily told, Carol, but I do hate catching a cold. Usually only get the chills with a flu, but with both, there's the achoo, achoo... Hope you're not feeling a cold coming on. Enjoyed the humor! Love, Carolyn
