Back in the Saddle

Well its about time. Yes, I have been feeling guilty for not updating this. Time for me to buck up and update you all on all the important happenings that have been going on. Also, Thanks for the death threat from a certain individual if I don't update it soon.

Here is a picture of what is now the long lost storm of '08. Picture is 5 of 8 timid deer that were crossing the front yard. The same timid deer that I have to mow around if they are too lazy to move. The snow was fun. Got to do a couple Roadside assistance, good samaritan deeds during the storm. First one was three kids in a Mercedes. I pulled over and helped push them out of a ditch. When we got them out, I told them that their car was a rear wheel drive and having the chains in the front was probably not the brightest move. Kids!!! The second one was the mailman. He slid into a ditch in our neighborhood. Had to get the truck out and tow him out. He takes my tow chain and wraps it around the bumper. I said, "Uhhh, I think that is the wrong move" and reconnected it to the frame. Before I pulled him I asked if I should be doing this and he said "Sure, They don't care." Not sure who "They" are but the USPS probably does care about having some local hick hooking up a tow rope to their vehicles. Anyway, told him to straighten out the wheels when I pulled. He apparantely knew better and kept them cranked to the left which ended up putting him into the ditch on the other side of the road. So I just kept on pulling until he figured it out. Mailmen!

Like the bliss of freshly fallen snow, so does this new posting stir my soul. Thank you. Thank you so much for this gift. I will read it over and over again. I will translate it to Spanish and French. I will use several phrases as an encryption key for a project I'm working on.

Thank you.
