  1. Sad to say there is no snow for Whit morning to all.

  2. I hope everyone had a nice weekend, all the dads especially so. Congrats to Larry on his fine new threads.

    It's funny Whit should mention snow in June. One of my step-fathers had a son with a birthday in June, and by the 6th grade the kid had spent his whole life in Florida and never seen snow, so for his birthday the old man hired a company to come and make winter all over the yard.

    Wishing you all a great week.

  3. Morning Andi and Jen,

    I know there's no snow, but I can keep wishing. ;)

    My daughters had never seen snow until they were almost in their 20's. Snow down here is a big deal. A lot of people hate it, but I remember FMom would be like a kid when it snowed. I can remember her waking me up in the middle of the night because a few flakes were falling and she wanted me to see it.

    All I can say is thank God for air conditioning!

  4. Morning, all.

    I *had* to go back & look at previous posts and yes, I clicked on the deer head photo. I figure Bebo was trying to re-enact the scene from my first book. ::g::

    Lots o'thunderstorms still hanging out/passing through here. One of my co-workers had a tree smash into her house. Folks in Texas had a tree smash down their back fence. Whee?

    Whit, you can have all the snow, forever. I'm totally over winter (in general). Just give me fall temps all the time.

    Happy Monday!

    1. Maria I will say one thing about air conditioning. After being in an air conditioned house, going outside, back in the house, and then outside again. It play havoc on your sinuses and summer colds.

      I usually get one bad cold during the summer and one during the winter. I guess it's the human condition that this happens, but I wish they would find a cure for colds.

      Now then, thunderstorms vs snow storms. I've only seen lighting in one snow storm and that's when I lived in Germany. But thunderstorm, that's different. We had to have a new roof after one came through here one time. I think my little town is lucky because we've never really had a tornado come through. They've hit outside the town and we've taken cover, but never really the town. Knock on wood! I'd rather have a nice gentle snow come down than any thunderstorm.

      As I've told Andi before, while I was in the military I was always stationed in northern climates. After a summer here with the humidity I was happy to have the snow and cold. While in Germany I had no A/c and one summer it was hot. I hated it. Then the winter came and I had two feet of snow on my balcony. I loved it. I know this is getting long winded, but I still can't figure out why old people come down south for the heat. I'm 60 now and I hate the heat and humidity.

      OK I'll stop on the heat and humidity, but Jen that was a nice thing your step-father did for his son. As a matter of fact, Jen I have something to say to you. You are the only person that ever made me totally speachless (sp) at Booman's. You asked me one time as a person if I wasn't a mass murder. It took me so by surprise that I thought why would anybody think that. Then I got to thinking, we don't really know each other. Yes we say hi everyday and we hope everybody is doing well. But who knows. In the place I live now, I heard people checking the door handles to see if it unlocked at night. I don't sleep unless I'm sure the door is dead bolted and a chair is against the door. I remember places I lived before and sometimes I still wished I lived there. But no matter where you live, you have to be careful. I see some many times people that shouldn't have died, but because of some jerk, they did. I told y'all a long time ago y'all would never meet me, but it's only because I don't have the money to travel. If I did, y'all would be saying when is he going to leave. :)

      This is long winded and I sound down, but I'm really not. I just hope all of you are doing fine and that life is good.


  5. Yeehaw. No snow on Planet Georgia either. The Boy and I are heading to Manitowoc for a couple of days, loading up the last of his stuff. We'll be blowing right on by Andi & Jim's place, unfortunately, doing a marathon drive. Can you say, "getting too old for this $#!+"? Well, I got my iPhone, the Nook HD, and chargers. I'll live.

    The Boy did take me disc golfing yesterday, with Mason. We had to lug him around a couple holes, but he did OK after that. So… ROAD TRIP! Will check in when I can.
