The advice to carry Kleenex seems obvious to me.
But what do I know? I carry two boxes in my car.
My wife rebuffed me about it around when I first suggested she carry some too.
Now she can’t live without it.
Who’s silly now?
Ok, don’t answer that. Let’s just try to be prepared when we are out and about.
And if you are looking for a wintertime cure for red fingers, stiff from the cold, a hot shower works nicely.
My fingers were stiff and red with cold, and my nose ran. I had forgotten the Law of the Wild, which is, “Carry Kleenex.”
