Started the contest with a sore throat and a stuffed up head, but things were 
going great and I was having fun, especially Sat. night when I had a good run 
into JA land.  But at the end of Sat night my throat was really tight and I
was very hoarse.  I took some home remidies, mainly some hard stuff from my bar 
and went to bed intending to have a great second day.  My wife woke me up at 
0600L and I went to say "good morning" and nothing came out of my mouth.  Oh 
no! Oh well I would try to just work CW, but my head was so stuffed up I could 
not even do that.  So after a good first day, I could only make 99 Q's the 
second day, including four new country multipliers just using my voice keyer.  
I had to crack up when I worked ZD8Z and he said "I hope my signal is as strong 
as yours".  I tried to say "I wish my voice was was as strong as yours", but 
nothing would come out.  Heck, I still had a great time.  There sure were a lot 
of good operators on and it was nice to say hello(when I could) to some good 
friends.  Happy Holidays to All!
