However, a few days over Thanksgiving with our wonderful grandchildren left us both with colds. Or maybe it wasn't them at all, but just travelling on airplanes three times in a week that exposed us to more germs than usual.

I didn't stop all activities. No one was able to sub for me as a docent on Wednesday at the Snite Art Museum, so I bravely toured three groups of third graders on their "Sculpture Quest." Adrenaline flows and I didn't feel terrible until the third group went downstairs to do their project. I collapsed on the bench outside the museum before the long walk to the parking lot.
I wonder why no one has been able to find ways to prevent colds or reliable ways to ease symptoms. The array of over-the-counter medications at the drug store is overwhelming. I tried a couple of them without much success. Jim talked to a pharmacist tonight and signed for something kept behind the counter. We'll see if that has more success.
In any case, I am glad that the common cold has been a pretty "uncommon cold" in our experience and hope that continues.
