Our 43F temperature today is definitely an anomaly in this current freezing cold weather pattern we have been locked into for so long. Not for residents to worry about though with freezing rain on the way turning into snow tomorrow. Gee, we certainly wouldn't want to get used to temperatures above freezing now, would we!?!?

I've been doing a lot of reading the past couple of days. I finished Only When I Step On It which is about a fellow hiking the Appalachian Trail alone. I liked this book so I left a 'first ever' review....."I thought this was a great book for many reasons. I appreciated this fellow's honesty and humor as well as his persistence, resilience, and dogged determination. His story held my interest from the first page to the last page as I hiked the trail with him. The book is a true inspiration for anyone regardless of what problems they are facing. Good stuff:))" I followed this book with a short biography about 'Ernest Hemingway'. What an adventuress skally-wag he was. I have always been a fan of the 60's rock group, The Doors. Their biggest hit 'Light My Fire' has and still is one of my all time favorite songs. The band consisted of Jim Morrison-vocals, Robbie Krieger-guitar, Ray Manzerek-keyboards, and John Densmore-drummer. When I saw Robbie Krieger had recently written his memoirs in a book called, Set The Night On Fire I wasn't long in downloading it to my Kindle reader. I thought he did a great job in clearing up a lot of myths and exaggerations about the Doors. If you are a Doors fan then this is the book to read.
Just think, in only 12 short days we will be standing on March's doorstep. From there it is only 21 days to the first day of Spring and 13 days until we turn our clocks ahead 1 hour. Oh, and for you cold weather Santa Clause folks, it's 312 long days to Christmas. Na-na-na-na na-nannaaa:))
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A journalist assigned to the Jerusalem bureau takes an apartment overlooking the Wailing Wall. Every day when she looks out, she sees an old Jewish man praying vigorously. So, the journalist goes down and introduces herself to the old man. She asks, "You come every day to the wall. How long have you done that and what are you praying for?" The old man replies, "I have come here to pray every day for 25 years. In the morning I pray for world peace and then for the brotherhood of man. I go home have a cup of tea and I come back and pray for the eradication of illness and disease from the earth." The journalist is amazed. "How does it make you feel to come here every day for 25 years and pray for these things?" she asks. The old man looks at her sadly. "Like I'm talking to a wall."
My mother-in-law is coming...I had to clear out half my closet so she could have a place to hang upside down and sleep.
Census Taker: 'How many children do you have?'
Census Taker: 'May I have their names, please?'
Woman: 'Eenie, Meenie, Minie and George.'
Census Taker: 'Okay, that's fine. But may I ask why you named your fourth child George?'
Woman: 'Because we didn't want any Moe.'
