Today's post will be short.
I am in bed with one of the maladies travelers often suffer. A cold.
It certainly could be worse. The imagination runs wild while sitting on airplanes and standing in line with people who have been exposed to all sorts of microbes. We live in an era of intercontinental germ sharing.
And I am far more fortunate than my friend Isla Gringo, a former blogger now on Facebook, who suffered a heart attack while visiting family in Minnesota.
Most of my tasks here in Oregon can wait. So, I will return to the sleep-welcoming arms of Nyquil.
But rest assured, I will be back to continue this journey. After all, there is a house to be purchased. And tales to be told.
