My kind of Christmas. Decidedly. Enjoy the snow and the blizzards and the power outages and the smoke blowing back down the chimmney. I need to go find my sandals to take the dog for a walk.
Dear CPA3485 (Jimbo): A few of these were really funny, but I got a smile from all of them. While this season comes with a magic all its own, it also brings a sense of comic relief in the shared frustrations that accompany the hustle and bustle of the holiday. There is nothing like having the power wink out, just as the fire on the hearth or in the stove flares up. Nothing tastes like egg nog, when you finally hit the perfect mythical ratio of brandy, rum, or whiskey to the egg, cream, vanilla, and sugar mixture. And nothing packs the romance of a shared blanket as the wind blasts the glass panes with the touch of snow and ice. Even the growl of a motorcycle fades in appeal to sleigh bells -- for one week at least. Nice post tonight, Jimbo.Merry ChristmasFondest regards,Jack • reep • ToadTwisted Roads
Conch,My wife is still using her crocs that have the fuzzy lining, but only inside the house.We only get a white Christmas about 10% of the years around here, but we still hope. Like Jack says, cuddling up with a blanket, some hot chocolate, family and friends is aloways a good time.
Jack,These were just a few of the ones we have received in emails recently, and I just could not resist posting some of them.I am hoping it warms up just a bit here. It has been over a week since I have ridden and I am starting to go crazy. The ice knocked out the idea of riding for about 3 days, other than that it has just been very cold here on the plains. Temperatures have only barely gotten above freezing.Last Sunday was an exception as the temp got into the 50's, but we had a good friend graduate from college and went to the ceremony and dinner afterwards to celebrate. Sometimes family and friends take precedence over riding (but just barely).Stay warm
Mrs cpa3485:My ears are burning, did I hear the word Crocs? Please post up a photo, I want to know if they are PINK. If they are, then you are a member of a very exclusive fraternity.The snow storm that was forecast yesterday evening didn't happen. We are back to rain. By this afternoon all the ice and residual snow will be gone. Key West weather is forecast for this weekend. Time to dust off the pink crocs and go down to the beachbobbobskoot: wet coast scootin
You motorcycle people are all sick, sick, sick!Lucky was right. Daredevil accountants? It figures.
