  • Been a long day
  • Found out my little sister was home alone for Christmas. We can't have that. I asked my girl friend to go with my and we made the 2 hour drive north just to have dinner with my little sister.

    When I left the house I did not realize it was 8 F with a 35mph wind and snowing sideways. My COPD was not reacting nicely. Filled up with gas and fresh coffee and made the trip in 4x4 and 3 hours.

    Had a nice visit and dinner at the casino because everything else was closed. No I don't gamble I just eat their food LOL. Ride back was the same, 4x4, blowing snow, white outs and 3 hours of stupid people driving. Home now with my shoes off and two fingers of brandy NO ICE! had enough ice for one day. Breathing normal again and bourbon is kicking in LOL Merry Christmas Kim.

  • Good for you! Lol.

    I was up to Wayland today after a snowmobile, saw some crazy things through the whiteouts on 94. Pickup did 3 complete donuts trying to get on a ramp by Kalamazoo. Don't know how he didn't get hit, several cars in the ditch tho.

    Which casino were you up to?

  • That's my plan. My house is the farthest drive for everyone but I have never had a Christmas dinner at my house.

  • Glad to hear that Dan. She was probably happy you did that -family & Christmas. Was your dad there too? The snow accumulation here was deceiving. The winds were obnoxious. I thought we only had like 2-3 inches overnight Christmas Eve. Opened front door at 0400 and saw it was more like 6-7". Got dressed and went out to uncover the car so could go to church. It was too early to fire up the snowblower so had to do it by hand. After church got back out and then it started blowing and snowing again. Another 2-3 inches fell by 1500 and then I got busy hitting the neighborhood. Didn't finish until well after dark, was frozen, literally, clothes soaked thru and knees were all but done. I'm in great pain this morning and out of pain pills. Looks like a James Jameson and a few Molson's day...

  • I realy miss plowing the neighbors driveways for them. These single digit temps got me locked in the house though. Just can't breath out there. I just broke the seal on a 1/2 gallon of Southern Comfort you should stop by so we can self medicate. LMAO.
