Readers:  Please read my entries dated January 13, 2013 and February 23, 2013, in that order, before returning, here.   He shoveled the entire drive, including the turn around, the back walk, the back steps, the front walk, the stoop and the sidewalk.  When he came in and I paid him...

Woke this morning to 34 degrees.  Snow was falling when I went to bed last night but it was done.  Snow was laid like sod on lawns and sprinkled on trees and bushes as decor.  None covered  any sidewalk or street.  They were clear and dry.  For some reason, as I saw...

Our flirtation with spring ended. It was a brief, delightful affair.  She was warm and gentle. Grouchy winter has returned, spitting huge, wet blobs of snow down from his cold grey maw.  The cats aren't pleased, going to the door, going out, and coming back in.  Confused, they look...

Photo: Captain Nemo planting his personal flag on a cliff of Antarctica, from the first edition of Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.   There won't be much to do in the next few days, besides shoveling, so I thought I'd keep a running blog entry during that time.  I'll publish...

(1) Amen. (2) Yes. (3) Well, everybody does. But if you put your tire-chains on and drive a little more carefully, probably not today... (Image uncredited, likely due to subsequent multiple-vehicle crash.) -- Earl Merkel

Well, gang, as of right now, it is snowing yet again!! One of those freezing, sleety-type of snows. It's still kind of pretty because I absolutely love snow. However... It is all of 19 degrees Fahrenheit out there today, which is kind of a heatwave, considering that most of this past week, it...

  Dress Rehearsal – Christine Hamm     Someone calling, Mira, Mira, not so close. A white lake. Something frozen, stepping on something frozen and uneven. The seagulls clatter, pull the clouds into filaments. The moon, a lopsided mouth, enters your body and you drown again. Last...
