Sun is very hot - no wind, bye-bye SNOW

We've had our winter wonderland for three days now. It will melt fast in the next few hours.  So far everything is covered and white, but it won't be long now.  They are saying it will be in low 50s f, this afternoon,  I'm ready.  Need to get out and...

Something I'd Never Noticed - *MEN vs WOMEN*

Watching an old movie,  "PLEASANTVILLE,"  I'm not sure how old it is, maybe 15 years ago.  A  brother and sister are suddenly bewitched and instead of their own home, they are living the life of an old Television show, where everthing is  perfect, it...

STILL SNOWING

Very fine powder snow, quite unusual in the south.  Our snows are usually big feathery chunks that accumulate fast and melt fast.  It has been snowoing constantly since 6 pm last night,  there is now about 5 inches of it.  They say there is more to...

Finally SNOW, 24 hours after it was predicted to start.

6 to 8 inches are expected,  Still not a blizzard in my book but it will be a nice diversion,  the most we have had in the last 6 or 7 years.  My family in New Hampsire will laugh.  They often have 40 inch accumulations. I liked Toni55's frantic...

CONFUSION AT EBAY -- CADDY & LaSALLE

LaSalle was not a model of Cadillac.  It was a sistar car which most dealershi;ps sold, between 1927 and 1940, just as Oldsmobile was not a model of Cadillac, it was a sister car also made by General Motors.   A lot of sellers on Ebay seem to...

THE SNOWS OF YESTERDAY...

Are coming my way again.   As  a mountain boy, I miss the snows we used to have.  Oh, sure it is inconvenient to today's lifestyle, but you make adjustments and it isn't inconveniet at all.  It was like a gift from heaven.  So you are out of cream for...

Two friends hiking in the woods

On a hot and humid day.  They paused to take of shirts and shoes, and then hiked on until they saw a sign, "Hungry bears roaming this area."  One of the hikers insisted on putting on his shoes and shirt again.   "Why bother," the other friend...

WATCH WHAT YOU PRAY FOR...

'Cause you just may get it.  And you might feel like you've been through an old wringer washer and wrung out to dry.  I'm thankful, but feel a little ill-used.   Ten months ago I had gottem myself into a pickle at the bank.  I was in overdraft...

We'll lose our snow today.

The sun is very bright and hot, Yesterday it was sunny but very cold and so no melting took place.  But I think the snow will go away before this day is over.   I will miss it,  I love those days when thworld is so white and glistening. It is as...

Health status, Final for this juncture

I've thrown away the walker and the cane. I am walking normally now, though I need exercise.  Weight 214 lbs.  My energy is slowly coming back and my appetite is normal now.  I had to use a laxative.  I hate that but it is sometimes necessary.  They...

A NEW F. SCOTT FITZGERALD FAN

C'est Moi.  Several of his books were on our shelves at home and I tried to tackle them at 13 or 14.  By comparison, Tolestoy was a carnival of light. I could make no headway in Scott's books.  I was bored to tears. How could such a slow writer be...

CARING FOR AND GROOMING SEX SLAVES

Change genders to suit your tastes.   In my opinion the act of making someone do something they don't want to is the act of a sicko.  That would be exercising your sadistic urges.  Sex slaves are something else.  You find a person who loves to...

26 Days Cigarette free. Kinda proud.

That's with the aid of transdermal patches,  I'm still getting the nicotine but not through smoke.  The urges are still there, especiall after I have just eaten a meal but they don't last long, I soon forget them.   Next week I go on the final step --...

Snow, Sort of.

About 3 inches.  That is respectable enough to call it snow.  Everything is white this morning. The limbs of trees all plastered with the white stuff.  You had better not call it a snow storm or you will be laughed at.  It takes about six or seven...

Blame our English Heritage for Prohibition.

It was a "class consciousness" that proclaimed "WE can handle it, THEY cannot."  The English always prohibited heavy drinking except in their own class.  And it wasn't just the Irish, it was their own countrymen.  So naturally once established here,...

SUMMER YESTERDAY - WINTER TODAY

Yesterday I sat outside on lawn chairs drinking my favorite iced beveredge.  the temp had been edging upward and yesteday reached 74 degrees.   Today snow is forcast as the temperature drops toward 20, and tomorrow the highs will be in the low...

ALTERNATE MOVES I wish i had made

The eighth grade girls pissed me off.  I've written many times about this.  In those days and in our town, the end of year prom was the first big dating opportunity.  But by Christmas holidays the girls were getting antsy.  No boy had gotten up the...

IMPROVING, but NO ENERGY

Yes, I feel better and show signs of improving.  I'm also down to 215 lbs now.  But I have no energy.  Mostly I want to sleep 6 or 8 naps a day.  Food doesn't seem to improve energy.  Wonder if they still make Geretal?

DO MEN STILL DRESS UP? IS IT POSSIBLE TO TELL?

I''m getting old, I know. but styles had changed so completely now.  Is it possible to tell when a man is dressed up?  This is no joke.  I cannot tell.  Once one could tell from four blocks away whether a man was dressed for businessm or dinner or a...

My appetite's back, BOY is it back!

I lost appetite back the second day in hospital.  I've wanted barely enough to keep body and soul together for weeks there and then this first week at home.  It is like losing a trusted friend who tells hou what to eat and when.  Then you lose it, ...

Yesterday I felt bad

I didn't mention it because it was only my second day home from Hospital.  I was afraid I'd have to go back again,  I did not eat even a bite yesteday. Just liquids but today I'm feeling my old, recuperating self again,  I can tell I'm still on the...
