I’ll trade a roll of Charmin two ply for a liter of Purell.

I like the meme I saw yesterday on facebook about those of us who have ate at Pancho's are immune from the corona virus.  There's not one of those places in East Texas anymore to be inoculated, but I saw another from the same source that if you swim in the Sabine River your covered too.  I would assume Dommer is good to go, unless he's been eaten by one of them gators.

If Pancho’s equals immunity, then I’m covered. Raise the flag, raise your resistance. Lol

I can attest that eating their will knock out the common cold or croup.  There's something about the green chile they use.  I know David Smoak used to say a bowl of the chicken tortilla soup at On the Border would do the same.  I tried it after hearing his advice, and that stuff works miracles as well. Some folks ask me what is the croup, maybe it's an old school term for an URI, but I still get it.  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/croup/symptoms-causes/syc-20350348 .

Around our neck of the woods Dave, we grew up on the croup. Just a bad ol’ nasty cough.

30 minutes in a hot steamy shower will break that 💩 up & you can cough it up and feel better; works for me.👌🤨

That and Vick's vapor rub, until the meth heads chose to use it for other purposes.  The same with monkey blood.   I realize that isopropyl  alcohol  and hydrogen peroxide can do the same things, but monkey blood cured many a scrape for me.

Still can’t beat whiskey, lemon and honey. Even my front row Baptist Granny kept a small bottle for medicinal reasons in the winter.

I will say the worst cure for a stomach virus and a cough was  paregoric, sugar, and Coca Cola.  You could buy that stuff over the counter at pharmacies until the 80's that I remember.  It's why I don't drink Coca Cola to this day, it was opium based among other nasty ingredients.  Another nasty home remedy that I was told  would clean my blood was those cow pill cream of tarter tablets that they used to make.    Pancho's on the other hand was a treat, and I will eat there as long as they are open, because I'm addicted to that food.

I wonder if they're shutting restaurants and bars down like they have in Harris County.

Hopefully this gets better. I am kinda surprised the lockdowns are not closer to East Tx. Limitations on restaurants isn’t going to cut it. The elderly are the ones who may have to worry.

The drive thru isn’t really making a difference. The grocery stores will be where the crazies go.

It used to be on KLTV 7 at 3:00 back in the 70's, and  KTBS 3 on Saturdays back in the 70's.  I loved those old shows.  When they released the VCR collection I had to buy it.
