    So spring is here, really??

    On the social network thing. All my kids and grandkids gave up paper and telephone voice over their preferred facebook profiles.

    So to stay in contact with my kids, brother, neices, grandkids, inlaws.
    Everyone except for my Mother. ( I drive a few hundred miles from time to time for face to face for her, because she is important to me)
    I keep a facebook account out of necessity. Bowing down to the majority.

    My family and friends are large and extended. I enjoy their correspondence from time to time. But I can also be careful on what I post on my profile there. Being a the only linux user in my family and all.

    I tend to not over think stuff too much. It keeps me young at heart.

    It is spring here. If you have allergies. The Hispanics here seem to think Mulberry trees supply the best shade from the sun. Mulberry trees are a allergy sufferers bane.

    So we have our own quirks and demons to deal with.

    My mother is nearly deaf, the increase in text based communication has greatly improved her ability to socialize and be social.

    Florida vacation

    I am envious. My mom and dad live northwest of Orlando in Tavares. I wish I could live there too. At the moment I am doing the traveling backwards. I spend not quite two weeks in Florida in late July and early August. I do yard and household jobs for my folks. The heat never bothers me unless I'm in full sun. Kansas weather is nicer than Illinois. We have more sun, but the cold just wears on me.

    Florida vacation

    Sounds like fun. I did Florida as a run away in my teenage years in Tampa and Orlando. Probably a lot has changed by then.

    I set my Mom up in Sun City in Phoenix Arizona. It is a senior citizen city with it's own hospitals, golf courses, Malls. Residents drive their golf carts on the streets like cars. The laws are geared towards senior citizens.

    I know also what you mean by downsizing. I rented the biggest ryder truck and car trailer and loaded up Mom's 20 acre chicken farm house and barn and left 50% behind for the farm buyer. Selling the farm bought the house in Sun City.

    My plans are to stay on the Mexican Border till I die. Nice and warm. Lot's of good food and beer. Good people. We have a desert golf course, but being a scooter tramp. I never played the game. Just caddied as a kid.


    Enjoy Florida. I don't handle humidity real good and hate skeeters = (mosquito).
    The desert does not have a whole lot of either one. Also. Bicycle and motorcycle riding weather is the bomb down here also and the roads are empty of big city traffic. Just expanses for miles.

    Snow, Snow & more snow!

    I spotted a "salt truck" today (looks exactly like a plow to me),
    and I said "no way, it's not even..." and then I shut up.

    Yeah, I heard about those tornadoes.

    We had thunderstorms in November. Tornadoes in December--yet more weirdness.

    Changes are coming. Woke up to a foot of snow covering my truck in the desert.
    My snow storm and Arctic front is headed your way.

    I got off light. Everyone east of me lost their homes in tornados.
    So be careful out there.

    We've run the air conditioner for four days now. In the middle of what used to be winter in these parts.

    I went for a bicycle ride in gym shorts and a tee shirt on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

    This is not right.

    The snow here can be cleared by peeing on the driveway.

    I think a flamethrower would be a great snow dispersal tool.

    Kansas has been warm this year too. We've only had a couple of frosts so far.

    Snow, Snow & more snow!

    In my part of the world, the fall has so far been eerily warm. We had temperatures in the 70 Fahrenheits week before last and I was able to go for a bike ride wearing shorts and a tee shirt. In November.

    When I was growing up about 40 miles north of here some (mumble) many years ago, we would have already have had at least one hard freeze and several frosts and already broken out the winter coats.

    Commonly, when I was young, we would have an "Indian summer" about Thanksgiving, but, as you can't have an "Indian summer" unless you've had at least one hard freeze, there's no "Indian summer" in prospect, though no doubt if it's warm this week the whippersnappers will think they've had an "Indian summer" because what do they know?

    If you are waiting on God to remove snow, He's busy until Wednesday of this week.
