The Great Jannie

Mysteries | Posted by Jannie on 17 February 2011 @ 4:38 PM 28 Comments


The Great Jannie who never gets sick is sick.



Sore eyes.

Sore throat.

Sore head.


But on the brighter side, the cuts in Jannie’s fingertips from the tree branch run-ins are healing up nicely!

Above is a nice sky photo Kelly took last fall.

Jannie did soothe herself with her blue guitar today.

And Jannie does not have any broken bones, gushing wounds or toothaches, whooohooo.

Day at the beach, really!

Poor little baby Jannie will be resting up for the next couple days. Please wish her peace and happy dreams.

And give yourself a hug from Jannie.

    Not everyone knows that all illnesses are actually caused by bad poetry and poor guitar playing on the part of invisible Martian goblins. True.

    Awh, I hope you’re feeling better soon, Jannie. Enjoy the next couple of days… relaxing. Maybe a hot bath and a massage? Hugs.

    You know – I have that exact same thing. It must be germs that are racing through the south. Advil Cold and Sinus is getting me through work. Hope you feel much better soon and hope I do, too. :)

    When Jannie goes down, even
    the sun is hesitant to rise;
    when Jannie is sick the grass
    looks gray all over the country,
    and those patches in the city too.
    Rest, lots of beer and donuts,
    gargle salt water, drink
    Chinese herbal tea, and hey,
    get better. Melva and I are
    flying to Texas, to Houston,
    on Saturday to see her Mom,
    who is 86. We will wave as
    we wing over Austin.

    Pauvre P’tite!
    Prenez beaucoup de tisane et grands bisous!
    Aussi … I support Fireblossom’s theory of the invisible Martians … George Nouri had a guest on “Coast to Coast” recently positing just such a hypothesis, minus the blue guitars; he said pink. 😉 Well put, Fireblossom!

    Uh oh, when I saw that title “The Great Jannie” I thought you were going to attempt another death-defying stunt along the lines of the “Up My Tree” video, which I think was responsible for the scratches you mentioned in your post. I was expecting Jannie the Human Cannonball or something like that. But now I see you’re in bed, and at least that means there won’t be any unfortunate tree branch run-ins in the near future!

    Well-being is the core state of the essence of being. Feel our way there. Be that. The mind can imagine some incredibly creative scenarios. Yet they are not real. The real does not doe and the unreal never lived. Blessings!

    Thank you everybody. Sorry for this whiney post. I do not handle being sick very well, eh?
