Good Morning, Day-After-and-Day-Before Friends.

Day after 'Pines Day.
Day before Weekend Eve.
The middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition and.....
Wait.....
That's from something else.

Ah!
Here we go -- back on track:
Days to the Season: 223
Days to Christmas Day: 265
Three weeks from tomorrow sees us safely to the 1/3 point to Christmas Day.
The next day sees us through the 200-day Season Window and into the 100's count zone.
Wow!

Continued cooler yesterday but sunny and calm, making it seem warmer.
A true warming trend is supposed to start this weekend and last for some time.
That will be welcome!
We currently reside at 42 degrees here in the capital city.

Have a Thoroughly Thrilling Thursday, Guys.
Weekend Eve tomorrow!

Good Thursday morning, my Christmas friends!

I went to the track meet yesterday to watch Jacob run his one event: the mile. I got tired just watching that. A few of the kids nearly sprinted the whole thing, but most were huffing and puffing when they reached the end.

Afterwards, we went with his best friend's family out to eat at Shane's Rib Shack. I had to give up pork, but they had the best grilled chicken sandwich I've had in a while! Another selling point at Shane's is that they offer several different flavors of tea. The Statesboro blend is soooo sweet, it's almost syrup. Blech. I can't take tea that's too sweet anymore. I now pour mine 3/4 un-sweet, 1/4 sweet. That's better!

I hope y'all have a great day!

I'm glad it's Thursday, but I'd rather it was Friday. It's been such a busy workweek. We've both been so busy that yesterday evening was the first one we were able to spend together since Sunday. We bought some travel items for our trip, listened to an episode of Fibber McGee and Molly, and hit the sack a little earlier than usual.

Last night I dreamed I was looking at photos from an MMC get-together that I'd missed. So of course I didn't know who was who in the photos.

  • Archeologists recently unearthed an old english dictionary dating back to the year 1236. It defined "victim" as "one who has encountered Chuck Norris."
  • Police label anyone attacking Chuck Norris as an 11-45...attempted suicide.
