Read the newspaper without sneezing

I have found that if I read the newspaper on the internet, it will not make me sneeze.
I have even gotten books from the library that make me sneeze. It is very aggravating.

I was a good girl today. I did my treadmill and upper body exercises.

We had that wonderful fried catfish today for lunch. It doesn't get any better than that.

We saw fireflies this spring while we were camping in Okla. I haven't seen fireflies since I was a kid. I recalled this event while I was on the treadmill.

I know what you mean about that, Sweetthing..I suffered for ages, before I finally figured out what was causing my watering eyes, and itchy nose. I finally discovered it was the ink used in the printing.

Good for you on the exercise! I just have to start getting on my Gazelle, too...not as bad on the knees as walking.

Yep, it's the ink.
My book will be hypoallergenic if that's an help.
At least, that's what they claim.

Jan, I give up, what is a Gazelle?

Dick, do we have to down load it from the internet? Our copy paper gets in my eyes, nose, and throat too and this is just from handling it after it comes out of the ink jet printer.

I have a pile of 50 and 60 year old magazines that I read in the loo. they always make me sneeze.

Sweetthing, having once belonged to an actual gym [a lot of good that did], as I recall, a Gazelle is one of those cardio-machines that simulates skiing.

FWIW, I work in a newsroom with no windows, FILLED with newspapers at any given time, and we are all allergic to them.

We delude ourselves into believing that hand sanitizers will help us stave off illness, but one of us always catches something, and passes it on to the next person.

Always a losing battle.

Fireflies. Wow. I haven't seen one of those in ages. Brought back great memories.. .thanks for reminding me.

I too haven't seen fire flies since I was a girl. We used to catch them and put them in jars. We'd let them go of course when it was time to go in.

It'll be downloadable.
I'm sorry about your pup.
