Thought for the day:

Any man who drives a full size four wheel drive pickup, with a lift kit, with oversize tires, that has never had dirt between the treads, and nothing heavier than a bag of groceries in the bed is suffering from a severe testosterone deficiency...

hmmmm, fyi, I am not enjoying it, lol. I know tonight/tomorrow morning is supposed to be colder, I'm just glad it will be the weekend when I'm not on call or scheduled to work, and no guard either. yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

My unit did another funeral yesterday, they're all sad. Many of the relatives want the spent casings, we usually make sure they get at least one, plus/and of course the flag.

forecast for a 2nd hard freeze of around 23 degrees tomorrow night. i remember back in 1970 when I moved to Minnesnowta, one of the first things I noticed was that every car had a 6-8 ft snowmobile pole with a red flag on it. When I asked why, i was told for the snow.

for the snow?

yup, see there are no fence rows or trees on farms around here and all the snow blows into town.

so?

well, you see, we have an Armory here and when it snows, we'll get 8 to 10 to 14 feet of snow in town, because it all blows until it hits here and stops here in town, and some of the only vehicles that can get around (besides snowmobiles) are the US Army half-tracks, and if you don't have a red flag, the Army could drive over top of your car accidentally and crush it.

well, i didn't believe it . . . until the first snow - glad my car was in the driveway.

I bought a snowmobile that very day . . . and a red flag on a 6 foot pole and attached it to my car.

it took me 3 days to get to my business location, which was on the edge of town about 1 mile from my house.

snow = dirty 4 letter word

ok, i like snow, and we had lots of fun snowmobile trips for 10 years while living there.

I went for a walk with Bean after dark and we were heading home in the pitch dark and there were two loud squawks... scared me....that was swan passes right atop the trees. Noisy buggers.

brkft long since passed but I just love, am addicted to oatmeal with greek yogurt and fruit. I make a snack out of it.

Hope all is going well with your brother in love, tim.

A special reminder for Chicago voters next week. Be courteous. If you are planning to vote more than once, return to the back of the line after each vote.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. He's out of surgery and in the ICU for recovery now. Looks like it was a success.

He'll be in the ICU for a couple days and in the hospital for aweek or so.

Tim - no worries mate.....

My mom had a valve replaced plus some bypasses done when she was in her mid 80's. She did well for another ten plus years.

As SGM said - today its more of a routine operation and the recovery rate is very very high -

Tacobelle - thanks for trying the cornbread - let me know how you like it.....

As far as the sleet goes - I sympathize with you. We actually had to turn on our furnace for the first time this morning. Now that is revolting I tell you. Even had to wear a heavy flannel shirt while walking my avatar this morning. There outa be a law I tell ya.......

Tim, your brother in love and his family is in my prayers. You will be surprised how fast he is up and out of the hospital, I think it is the new methods of anesthesia....keep us appraised of his progress.

Sleet last night....disgusting.

I am going to make flyboy's corn bread tonight. Chili and fly bread.

Tim, you mentioning your brother's surgery reminds me of this bit of humor:

"I hope you're all Republicans," said President Reagan to the chief surgeon as he was wheeled into the operating room.
"We're all Republicans today, Mr. President," the doctor, a Democrat, replied.

I too wish him - that all goes well.
