Drainpipe

The "itsy bitsy spider..." No, I'm not going there. He'd be frozen solid anyway. Right now, it 5F outside the kitchen windows, and with a slight wind chill make that -4F. That's what I'd call brrrrrrrrr. On mornings like this, the walk up Stevens Avenue to Lincoln Junior High School, with that pile of books, was always a bit longer. No mittens, no hat, no problem! But I was very cool! At least I thought I was. I'm paying for it now

  3. I am sure we were all much more warm-blooded as teenagers than we are now! How many of us walked to school with no hat or mitts?

  7. Although it's a lovely photo, contrasting the red brick with the white frozen ice, it makes me yearn even more for spring.

  9. I'd feel sorry for you but it's been so damn cold here the past couple of days I couldn't even play golf. Well, I could have, but would have frozen my you-know-what! So here I am pounding away at the computer! Sheesh!

  11. You don't want to hear that it is cold down here in Florida today, too. 71 degrees. Didn't you say a while ago that you have skin condition attributable to doing without gloves in cold weather when you were a kid? Well, Bird, you're not a kid any more; bundle up!!!
