This N' That

Yesterday I had the day off, and it was a doozy of a snow storm. I had planned to ski ten miles behind our house, now that the hayfield has enough snow. It should have taken about two hours, but it took three. It kept snowing and blowing. The tracks kept filling in with new snow on each time around, making it necessary to break them in again fresh each time. I did about 9 miles and one of my skis came off. I think it was divine providence that the binding was frozen and I couldn't get the ski back on. I walked back to the house and saw the driveway was not negotiable, so I changed into dry clothes and went back out to blow the drive out. That was about 3:30, and two hours later when people started coming home they couldn't tell I'd done it at all. After the blow job I got supper ready and picked up the house. By that time I really envied the two cats that had just been lying by the heat registers all the time since I came in. I went to bed at nine and slept til eight this morning. At work we needed to clear snow off all the cars and trucks and then clear the snow off the car lot. Most of the salesman wore blue jeans to work, usually a big no no. I brought the whopper of a head cold I got yesterday getting all wet and cold. They let me stay indoors. I can tell you that after three hours at abut ten degrees Gatorade turns into one cool slush puppy. Since Epiphany is over we are taking down the Christmas decorations at my house. We had a nice holiday season this year. Hope everyone enjoyed theirs as well.
Someone needs to tell me what I'm missing because I think Bush's plan to go to Mars is about the biggest waste of time and money I ever heard of. Watching Seabiscuit (the recent movie) the other night I was reminded of all the government make work projects that built our nation's infrastructure while giving people their dignity back and digging our economy back out of the great depression. And then theres "lets go to Mars". (Sigh!)
I'll be back again tomorrow because I can't wait to see what crap is going down next! Adieu.
