The coffee is great this morning. Another cold one here today. I think I heard about some precip. Will know more after I "wake up". Company is in town again. I love them but I really wasn't expecting to entertain this weekend. huh

Need to get out and pick up some things for a trip I'm taking to Miami in about two weeks. Hopefully that will help with the cabin fever I am suffering from.

....Miami ?......sounds great...tho I'm not a Florida fan..... ;)

...cabin fever hit hard here this year...and lack of sunshine didn't help any either.....not much snow for the season, but the many gloomy,cloudy, days made it seem even more bleak.... huh

I can deal with Florida for a few days but I would not live there full time.

The house is cold this morning.  |brr| The stove wasn't drawing right so I took the bottom pipe off yesterday and cleaned it out, put it back together, and last night started a fire and it smoked up the house again. Now I have to get on the roof and push a brush down it.

Every spring the starlings try to build a nest in there, but they can't until the fire goes out. The fire has been burning 24/7 since November, so it has to be creosote up near the top. Last year I got #2 son the firefighter to go up and do it while I supervised from the lower roof. I told him, think of it as training.  ;D
