    I had thought of making this post last week after being briefed at work about the severity of the H1N1 or Swine Flu Virus. Well now the facts are staring us all right in the face. One of our own has tested positive for H1N1 and will not be able to attend the upcoming SC Gathering at Rocks Pond next weekend.:sad2::sad2::sad2:
    The CDC has said this week that it is highly possible that 50% of all Americans will contract the viral infection H1N1. I am NOT a Dr. and don't profess to be one, but as a health care employee I do know more than the average person. Please take this virus seriously! If you feel bad and have a fever, that you can't control with over the counter medication such as Tylenol or Motrin, for more than three(3) days, GO TO YOUR Dr.!! This virus is highly contageous. Stay away from people, wash your hands often and be vigilant of those around you with symptoms that are flu related. Beating the Flu season this year is going to require more effort on everyones part because of the severity of this stain and the fact it is so contageous. Just a few thoughts I wanted to share.:wink:
    Pop Pop, your absence next weekend will be felt by everyone!:sad2: You have done an excellent job putting this Gathering together and I thank you for all you have done. Please let me know where I can step up and help to make this a truly memorable event. Rest and drink lots of fluids. I am gonna need you in top shape for Team BIG STUFF Tackle's trip to Alabama next month to fish the Cabela's King Kat Classic! Love ya Bro!!!:wink:

    Man, i hate to hear pop pop is sick. Thats sad. And to tell the truth i don't even know if i want to eat in another restaurant again after i heard how those folks were spiting and p'ing and who knows what, on all that food they were serving. I guess even in them Jap restaurants you don't know what they have already done before they bring that stuff out and cook it in front of you. Donimoes will never, ever make a comeback after them sick-o's did what they did...............sorry, wrong subject.

    We will keep you in our prayers pop pop
