the cough is back

I thought I was getting better but, alas, the cough is back and I am miserable. I managed to finish David Copperfield today (he gets the right girl, Uriah Heep is punished, Mr. Macawber finally has success in Australia after being subjected to "transportation" to escape prosecution for a variety of petty crimes, and "all's well that ends well" (see Shakespeare, Wm.). One quick game of dominoes this afternoon (I won) which I probably should have missed as it didn't do my cough any good.

Beginning the third installment of Daniel Silva's Gabriel Allon books; he's an Israeli agent undercover as an art restorer. Good stuff. Now for a big dose of cough suppressant that will probably put me to sleep in no time.
