Black Friday

Well,I skipped shopping on Black Friday again this year! It is much too early for me to do any Christmas shopping. I never start until the weekend before Christmas--no kidding. If you goggle Black Friday there are several dates and reasons as to why it is Black Friday--my 0pinion--it will be the last day for quite a spell where your checking account is in the black, should be called red-Friday.

Snow, Snow and More Snow

Is it really only the middle of November? Here in the high country of Wyoming I have already scooped 30 inches of snow. Okay, I lied, I used my snow blower, sorry extremely green people but I am getting too old to shovel snow.
So—this begs the question, don’t you love it when someone says, “this begs the question?” Why do we still live here---Answer, because the rest of the year, it is fabulous.
So—how do I cope? Easy, I wear shorts and sandals year round.
* I turn up the thermostat to 80 degrees.
*I mow the grass even when it is covered with snow.
* I turn the heat on high or ultra high if I can find it, and drive the pickup around town with my windows down.
* I build snowmen and put sunglasses on them so they look cool and summery. Is summery really a word?
*And last of all (note how I cleverly did not say, last but not least) I go to Wyoming football games, set in the student section, take off my shirt, paint WYO on my chest and pretend like it is not cold.
No-Forget the last one—it was a lie.

H1-Old1 Flu Bug

Think I had a case of the new H1Old1 flu. Not as bad as H1N1, just caused me to be lazy, shiftless, sluggish and listless (I wanted to put lethargic but had no idea how to spell it). Actually I am always: lazy, shiftless, sluggish and listless and just might be lethargic also. Just forget this stuff—I quit for the day—will write next month. MAYBE—if I can get over this dang flu bug.
