W VI

Good morning, y’all. Call it the luck of the Irish to have the prettiest weekend we’ve had in a while, and me down with a major head cold. I’m guessing it’s the bi-annual allergies, into a head cold, into a sinus infection into a Doctor’s visit. It’s amazing how something so subtle as a shift …

W V

Good morning, y’all. High winds and the threat of tornadoes has kept me awake all night. Sometimes it’s just better to watch the radar map and see what’s coming at you rather than listen to the weather people drone on and on. I’m also untrustworthy of all of these Channel 11 “storm trackers” who send …

W IV

Good morning, y’all. The rains are upon us, but they are gentle and not frozen. It’s good to look for the silver lining when you can. I do not aspire to be a PollyAnna, but I do try to keep a positive attitude. No one likes a crotchety old man, and I’ve already attained one …

The Help

Good morning, y’all. Beautiful day here in the mountains. Looks like the weather will change on Sunday, though. The rains are moving back in for a few days. My tracking of the world famous Whiz O Meter and its machinations continues. Today was evaluated as a “9”, even though the high is projected as 66, …

Good morning, y’all. Another precipitation free day here at TackyToo. I might just start speeding up my painting process to higher than a snail’s pace. From my peeks outside, it won’t be long before I’ll be able to go plundering around the park in search of things to do. Spring springs eternal. When we left …

W II

Good morning, y’all. It is nice to have a warming trend for a change. According to the Whiz O Meter. a high of 62 degrees now qualifies as a perfect “11”. So I guess if you stayed indoors until the temperature reached it’s high for the day, and if you accept that a temperature that …

Good morning, y’all. Looks like we’re going to have a warming trend for the next few days. Hallelujah! I’m painting the Rec room to be productive while avoid being outside in the cold. As slow as I’m painting, the paint’s almost drying before I give it the second stroke. I need for it to warm …

Just Because There’s Snow On The Roof

Good morning, y’all. Winter has arrived. We’ve got snow and the promise of temps staying low enough to give us some freezing rain on Monday, oh joy! We are fortunate that the power has stayed on, and that folks are able to travel to their daily destinations without impediment. Fingers are crossed that the conditions …

Il Duce

Good morning, y’all. I’m looking outside at a light snow and it’s causing me to be quite reflectful. It’s funny how we look at something that eventually becomes a yucky mess and admire its peaceful beauty while it’s occurring. Right now, the snow is covering all of the ugly bald patches of dirt with a …
