Howdy, howdy, howdy!
Sunny, breezy, and in the low 60's.
Sorry you have the winter-weather battle, Ted. I 'remember when'. I lived in Greenfield Mass when there was a 24 inch snowfall, followed by another 6-8 inches. I was at the Community College there in 1968-9. A bunch of us went out walking at 2 AM and the snow was crotch-high. Glad I was very young at the time, so no ill effects felt from being a human snow-plow; just fun, and cold legs and feet.
Glad to hear you are having a good time at the convention, Joe.
Today I do laundry, and shred a big bunch of paper with names and addresses, and/or acct #'s on them. W00t!
Hubby says his two activity choices for today are "getting the leaves up from the yard" or putting up some Christmas decorations. Don't know which he has decided on yet. Leaves require the riding lawn-moaner and lots of outdoor time by himself... I just dread the Christmas Decoration thing, but he said he is not going to go 'all-out' with them like he did last year. He's really only doing it for Nannie, who is a Christmas Decoration Freak. She has three closets jammed FULL of Christmas stuff, and used to do it all herself. I'm sure she will be supervising the process, and probably want more than he is willing to wrassle with. Hubby's heart just isn't in it, but he will put up some to make her happy...or happier than she would be if nothing were to be put up.
What is NOT being assembled is the entire VILLAGE of 25+ houses, and stores that light up from inside, sleighs, trees, people, critters, train depot and train, pond w/ skaters, etc. Was thinking last night that it would be a good thing to donate to her church in honor of her and my sweet and saintly (deceased) father-in-law. It could set it up in the big hall where they have church-family related events. I know that the kids would LOVE it. But, on the other hand some of it could be distributed to his daughter and grand-daughters, or maybe even sold off. They are high-dollar items, and some Christmas crazed person would probably be happy to fork over good $$$ for them. But, at this time, that is all a moot point, because this wouldn't occur until after she passes; and it ain't my decision anyway.
So, I'm off to start my chores...
Have a good weekend, everyone! Stay safe if you're in the Winter Wonderlands!
