NewsNM - Swickard: we are not in studio Thursday because most of us are sick, really sick, with the summer flu. I know it is more blessed to give than receive so we are trying to keep our summer flu to ourselves and not give it to anyone else in our broadcast complex.
Therefore, we are playing a "Best of" show Thursday and taking all sorts of meds to get unsick including drinking tea and resting in bed while reading good books. That will get us well I am sure.
It is our best hope that enough of us will have a miracle cure and get better so that we can resume broadcasting live on Friday.
God Bless and Keep each of you. Michael
PS - Conrad the dog is completely well and cheering us on.
