It was 41F while I was out. Long sleeved shirt and a fleece vest was plenty.

Looks beautiful! Wish I were there.
Most of the water around here is solid ice.
Starting to melt a little today, in the 40's. Makes it pretty slick underfoot. I should get out & get the sidewalks scraped off before it freezes tonight.

Awww, Phinz. Sorry to hear it. I was assuming you live on a boat down in the Keys. People do, you know. Maybe you should start saving your pennies. Not that there's anything wrong with Tennessee.

I've been trying to convince my wife for 15 years that this is where we need to be. It hasn't worked yet.

My last message to her was sell the houses, sell the cars, keep the dog and meet me at the airport.

Give up. When we were engaged Himself said he would like to retire to FL. I handed the ring to him and told him to find someone else because I would never move to FL full-time. And we had the 2-house thing when we were restoring my parents' home - don't want the responsibility of two residences. We'll celebrate our 40th anniversary later this year. As long as we're still married. I'm still not moving to FL. I told him today that if he still wants to move to FL we can get divorced and split everything right down the middle. He can go to FL and I'll move back to OH. He never answered. Maybe he's thinking this over???

Why, CG - what could you possibly have against heat, humidity, and insects??

started freezing here today, the first time since 5 weeks.. we used to have spring temps in between, all the flowers already sprouted, I hope that won't do anything to them.
And it is foggy and grey, the right german term would be "usselig"...

We have had a little snow the past couple nights, now we are headed back to single digit temps for the next 10 DAYS! I'm glad I'm retired and have nowhere I have to be. I do need to make a grocery store run, though. I'm out of kale.

Like Carol, we're on our last day of relatively moderate temps, then down into the teens during the day/single digits until the weekend. Thinking this week will be seeing lots of soupl!

tinlizzy, ALL those things make me crabby. Since I'm naturally crabby I don't need my personality disorder enhanced!
