Travel Photo of the Day (February 7)

One of my first thoughts when I came down with the flu last week was I hope the better half doesn’t get it. Gosh, I love the better half, but what a baby when it comes to being sick. I received the dreaded email today. The one announcing, “I think I’m getting sick.”  I may have my hands full over the next few days. Isn’t this baby adorable?

    May the Force be with you!

    Good luck with that. My better half is a huge baby when he gets sick… I’d rather deal with all three kids sick than with him being sick! Hope you feel better soon.

    I hope your better half is wrong and won’t be coming down with it. For both your sakes!

    Ready for your Chief Nurse rôle? I hope TBH is better soon.

    Yes, the baby is adorable! However, I’m sure the baby is taller than I am.
    Hope the better half recovers soon.

      I saw a three week old giraffe but didn’t get a good photo. And it was taller than me. I think this one is much older but don’t know for sure.

  7. OH NO!!! If your better half is anything like my better half, that will not be fun :(. Will he at least take medicine when you suggest it? Because mine never does and it drives me crazy. I mean, don’t complain if you are not willing to do anything to help yourself :).

    My sympathy is with you…My better half becomes my awful half when sick.. Let´s say…If he is my half orange I sometimes feel the temptation to make a nice orange juice…But it last few days…;)
    So, lots of courage!
    BTW: I love Bostwana.We spent there our honeymoon..And one of the places we visited was the Chobe National Park…Forever in my mind!

  9. Love those giraffes! And yes, better halves always have ful whereas we just have bad colds 😉

  10. flu, not ful…which I think is an Egyptian bean dish 🙂

    I remember when I was married. i’d be sick – dragging myself around to look after two little ones, cook, clean…but Lordy if the man was ill…he took to his bed, demanded to be looked after, felt sorry for…drove me insane.

    • TBM says:

      Okay, TBH isn’t that bad, but still pretty whiney. And never wants to be alone. When I’m sick, I want to be alone. Go to work, go to the pub, but leave me in peace and quiet.
