the weather's a changing...

...and I've been remiss about posting lately.

It's not that I don't have anything to write about it's just that my arthritic fingers, wrists, elbows and shoulders are screaming at me! Screaming because of some barometric pressure changes going on around here. Two pretty good northeast Pacific Storms blew through here in the past couple of days... pretty good ones. And I like a good storm. It's a lot like my personality, I've been told.

The problem is I'm not sure if this is a good thing anymore...

Anyways, I haven't posted. I haven't posted because I'm hurting a bit and there isn't enough Aleve in the bottle to make the aches go away when that weather makes these drastic changes.

DG, we're sending another system your way. You should have got our last one yesterday... unless it pushed a bit north and missed your butt. This system today is fixing to dump about 2 feet of snow in the mountain passes so in your cooler climate it might warrant a Winter Storm Warning notice... then again, maybe not. All I can say is that I have two brothers who live east of you, in Great Falls, Montana and they're getting quite the weather... from us... from our coast... and from our wonderful neighbors to the north.

I just thought I'd let folks know "the wife" and I are still around... bi-polar brother in law hasn't done anything to us. I just haven't posted lately... too sore.

...a bit of Wild Turkey, lemon juice, water and ice...

nothing like that to wash down the Aleve!

Quite the masking cocktail.

cheers all.

Oh, I empathize with you. My mother got new garden lanterns and guess who had to put them up? Eighteen, aluminum lanterns that had to be put together, piece by piece screwed together by hands that don't work well these days. Today I've paid dearly. The hands, neck and back are throbbing and not even the Aleve touches the pain. Guess I'll have to add a little Wild Turkey to the mix.

It's windy...
It's snowy...
It's slick outside...

Just when i thought winter might be waning away. Still, It is pretty, so thanks.

Enjoy the wild turkey. I'll be sure to sip some Johnny Walker and give a toast to you tonight!

30 degree changes, hot or cold, from one day to the next, really messes with my allergies.

Cathy- Yah, toss a shot or two of Wild Turkey down the next time you take the Aleve... I'm not sure if it's the proper thing to do but it seems to help me fog the aches out of my mind... of course, with my mind most anything can be "fogged out" with relative ease.

DG- The next one should have arrived already. It's a bit colder but not as windy. Oh yeah, and it's very, very wet. Have fun!

And yah, the snow seems so pure doesn't it. I happen to love winter. A toast back at you too.

Steve- Yah you folks are getting some weather! Strange stuff going on with our climate lately... could it be Winter and Spring fighting it out?
