Woke up to 17F this morning, brrrrrr. Just a few snow flurries trying to sputtor a little bit but it did not amount to anything. We only had a high of 25F today. Sounds like it's supposed to warm up by the end of the week.

Be patient Little Grasshopper. The day will come and you will be cursing it with a shovel in your hand.

Never, I always take great delight in playing in the snow, even if I have to shovel it.

Easy does it shoveling that wet, heavy stuff. Dh was out shoveling snow on Christmas night, 3 years ago, when we had all that snow, & he was over exerting. He is pretty fit & at the time, 49 years old, & he had a heart attack. You would think it would have convinced him to stop smoking, but no such luck.

Because I almost lost my leg I am so over protective of the graft. It goes from the top of my instep up to the middle of my shin. I can't stand to have anything touching it. Even during the surgery, they left my leg uncovered for me. So in the winter I never wear socks. No matter how cold or deep the snow is. Just shoes. If it weren't for that, I would be right out there building a snowgirl. Maybe even a family of snow people. then we could have a snowball fight. Don't worry. I throw left-handed and I throw like a girl. And my aim is way off the mark. I never hit what I am aiming for.

SB, I have had three heart attacks and a bypass. I still smoke. Spike has had eight heart attacks. His heart was damaged as a kid from measles. He still smokes. In fact, when he was in the hospital for a couple of them, he would sneak off the floor and go outside to have a cigarette.

I used to smoke, for almost 20 years, I'm not here to preach to anyone about smoking as I have done my fair share. It's just that the doc, has told dh to change his lifestyle: Stop smoking, exercise, less stress & less red meat & he has done none of the above. I get discusted with him at times but ultimately it comes down to choice.

I am 73 y.o. I have been smoking since I was 10. I figure most of my life has been lived. Let me live the last part in comfort with the things I enjoy. I enjoy smoking.
