"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Winters Back (with a vengeance)



All those pretty flowers I took pictures of Monday are now putting on their jackets.  I don’t think it’s going to do them much good, though.  The forecast low for tomorrow night is 21 degrees.  That will be the coldest night we have had all Winter.

There hasn’t been much exciting to report on around here this week.  My brother and I worked on our house building project Tuesday and Wednesday.  Roughed in plumbing on Tuesday and laid steel and wire in the forms on Wednesday.  Tough work for an old man.  We had the concrete poured yesterday and everything went well.  Ready to start on walls as soon as the rain stops again.

Speaking of rain, it woke me up around 3 this morning and has been falling all day.  After breakfast with friends in town, the balance of the day was spent doing a couple of honey-dos and surfing the net.  Caught up on blog reading, and ordered a couple of parts for the trailer.  Looked all around the Country for some sunshine, but pretty much came up empty handed.  The only sunshine I found was in Canyonlands and Yosemite.



That’s about all the news for now.  Everyone stay warm the next few days……..jc
