I had COVID

Earlier this month I felt feverish and couldn’t get warm, so I took a hot bath and went to bed. The next morning I felt better, but still had achy joints. I went to a nearby drug store, took a test, and two days later on Easter Sunday, I got an email that was positive for the antibodies. At that point, the symptoms of fever had subsided, but I was fatigued for the next few days. I was dog-sitting for my sister in North Carolina when I first noticed my wrists ached—this was the day she and her husband left for two weeks. So I was all alone in a lovely home (with a sweet dog) for my time of isolation. It was easy. 

 I was very fortunate and I know it.

Glad you are fighting fit again Mike and still on the journey with us all on this weird blue planet.
Here's a link to an old post to cheer you up and put a smile on your face maybe -

I passed my copy of your book 'The Messengers' on to a book X-change on the small Australian island of Bribie Island yesterday too -

I wonder WHOse hands it will fly into with the 'Book Angel''s help?
I guess I will never know who, but WHO knows, right?-)
The book was only going to sit on my shelf gathering dust now that I have read it, so I figured the book was better off OUT THERE ... with the TRUTH:-)

Not to make light of you getting struck down with Covid, Mike, but I do find it ironic that I have always seen myself as more of the "Crow Guy" to your "Owl Guy", and crows are a part of the Corvid family of birds.
