Matter of Opinion

Keo Chronicles: March 14, 1945

(Charles "Fred" Cowan, Keo's brother-in-law.)

In afternoon, had a temperature of 100 and ached all over, especially head and back. I knew that the trip was off for me. When Io was told about it, she said she didn't think they could go, either.
She immediately wrote and canceled our hotel reservation. I think Fred was disappointed for he thought they could go anyway.

So the cold won. Trip canceled. Noticed they canceled their reservations in Seattle by mail. There is a nasty cold going around Spokane right now and no one seems to be canceling plans. I've run into cold-infected people everywhere and I have been guilty of same behavior in the past. So I shouldn't be too judgmental here. But I admire Keo for canceling, sparing herself and others.

Are you a keep-going-when-sick type or take-care-of-myself type?
