Lurking lurgy

The pall of the plague lingers on: Boo and Skibo are getting back to normal, slowly, but LOML is still suffering.  I've been fortunate, so far (and trying to assist my luck with lots of handwashing with hot water): it seems this is a nasty bug --- probably norovirus (which just burst back into the news with a vengeance: 400+ passengers on a cruise ship contracted it this week): apparently if you get it you can continue to infect others for a long time after your symptoms are gone, which is troubling.  There's been a "dramatic increase in cases" in the area, according to the local newspaper, and the symptoms match.  So, hand washing it is.

Yours, hoping LOML feels better soon, and that I don't feel worse,
