Bumpy Road

Thoughts From the Bumpy Road 2/9/17

According to the “real news” reports from WTRF television news out of Wheeling, West Virginia on February 2, Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog, saw his shadow and we will experience only six more weeks of winter. Because I am my father’s daughter, I had to check the calendar, and there are six weeks plus four days until the first day of spring on March 20th.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Often one of the most aggravating things for me each year is getting used to writing the date on bank checks and correspondence when the year changes. I was paying bills the other day and I had to use white out on my check to change  2016 to 2017.  Some numbers can’t be changed as easily as a 5 into a 6 or a 7 into an 8.

It’s Christmas Eve day, early in the morning, with my family still asleep, and my big, red grand-puppy is lying here by my feet wondering why I am awake at such an early hour. Last night I gave my queen-sized bed to my son and daughter-in-law and chose to sleep on the daybed in my spare room/office. Molly was whining at my door last night wanting to sleep with me.
