Whatever you do, do NOT look at our forecast! But do think of the thaw and good times to come, behind the wheel. We are all free to pick a spot that suits us and live there.

LOL. Maybe so but, we get to wonder why.

I have really enjoyed watching the Jonquils and Forsythia bloom this week.

My favourite time of the year is the Spring when things start bursting back into life after the cold and dark of winter

You DO have a cruel streak, don't ya...

Before our move last fall, I tried VERY hard to get my wife to buy an inexpensive winter home in central Florida, so we could get out of the snow and cold for 5 months. Now that we went over our "budget" on this place, there is no such thing in the future. I tried for a number of years to get her to move far enough south to get out of the worst of the cold, but she won't leave the immediate area of our son's housing. Now he may be moving to New Hampshire, if his girlfriend gets accepted to a grad school there. So much for staying close...

You can still re-locate to the US. I know a few people who have and 1 holds dual citizenship. She is so tired of the cold, she now lives full time about as far south in the US as 1 can get...south of Orlando, FL...

Family ties make sense, to me. In my twenties I realized if I stayed in TX or LA it meant a lifetime of road trips for me and or them so once my br'er moved here it was a no brainer. That if someone moves to stay close, it ought not be the parents. Parents know how to pick the spot.

John is like whetstone. Helps you stay sharp but by abrasion.

What say we focus on his baking, sewing, and gardening activites... I can inquire if he made that lovely apron and fuss over it, then you can compliment his hair do...

Either that or whisk him away to a gentleman's club. No, wait... John, I have met Mitch and don't think he might be the best influence for you at a place like that.

I kid. Thats how I communicate. I may live in a ripe weather area and have a surviving old car but any one of ya has me licked on automobiles.

Seems like the bench setup factor alone is a good cubby arrangement reason. Thats nifty.

Had to go to a sudden funeral this morning, so picking up the trailer got delayed a few hours. While I was gone the trailer got SOLD !! So they rolled out a spankin' new one for me. I would have preferred the grey one, as red isn't a good color for a Taurus, but it IS new. I got it home and the Chevelle loaded up. It's locked and cocked to leave in the morning.
