Time Again For Picture Day At Work

Posted 01-16-2018 at 08:15 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Well, wouldn't you know that Mother Nature had a hand in allowing businesses to put things off? It was just too cold outside to begin with, but the threat of ice on the ground never became reality. Good for the weather people being wrong for just once.

How her clear white the mighty smother tinges!
Delicious chaos! that such beauty bares!-

Her raven tresses ere the wide flame singes-
Oh! would she feel as I could do, and cherish
One wild forgetful rapture, ere all perish!-
