Another good book...














If history books were written like this when I
was in school, I would have paid more attention. 

Tomorrow's weather will make it a perfect day
to curl up with hot coffee , pillows and a warm blanket
and read. 

One of the benefits of being retired.

Could be worse...

Akron -4, with windchill -25.
BUT...the sun is shining!

By the weekend, we are told by the weather wizards,
the world will be melting because the temps will be
close to 50. Holy Shit. and Yay.

In the meantime, I just keep reading.

I recently started a book on the history of pirates:













A christmas present from my sister, Ann. 

Stay warm, my friends.

Snowbound...

I have no idea what any official measure is but,
we had almost two feet of snow on our cars and
close to eighteen inches in the yard.
We haven't seen the pavement on our street since
Saturday morning.

Today is clear and sunny but still not warm enough
 to melt even one damn flake. I guess that will happen
soon, though, because we're supposed to get heavy
rain later today that will continue through tomorrow. 

Then the cold and snow come back this weekend. 

Not everyone hated it.

There will be whining...

It's time to sharpen the snow shovels and buy more salt.

The prediction is for major dumpage alllllll weekend. 













Maybe the prediction will be wrong.
Oh, well. It is winter in NE Ohio.

Elisson...

Gone much too soon.

A genius of many sorts.
They would've loved him on Monty Python.
There's no way to remember him other than fondly.
