If I had the money I would buy that. Your rods are awesome.

Summer colds are the wors ... Oh, wait!  It's not Summer up there anymore !!!  

 

Had to close the windows and run the A/C again this afternoon.

 

Glad you're getting over the Cold.  Hopefully, it boosts your immune system and you won't get another one all Winter.
