Nice quiet day here. We stayed home and watched South Pacific last night, drank a toast at midnight and that was it. Today was bright and sunny and strangely warm for this time of year. I grabbed the dog and we had a really nice, long relaxing walk. We walked past marshland and when we got to the beach I let him off his leash. While he romped and frolicked, I took off my shoes so they wouldn't get wet and went to the edge of the water and touched the sea. Weird and wonderful! (Day 1 of my resolution to be more relaxed, lol.)

Happy Birthday


Today is my birthday. My wife and I went to the casino. We hit the buffet and did some gambling. I ate my $25 worth of food. I won $200 and my wife lost $34. We had a good time.

I was recently reminded of something I once read on City-Data - perhaps not even in the Retirement Forum: "Never get down in the mud to wrestle with a pig. You just get dirty and the pig enjoys it."

Have you been participating in Politics & Other Controversies?

That place is a case of survival of the nastiest. (or you tried to win an argument with your cable tv company?)

No, I steer clear of the Politics Forum. "No comment" on the specific trigger. It's a good quote though, isn't it?

Vent: I am so sick of seeing weather warnings going across the screen! Now it's danger of hypothermia. And to be sure to wear hats & gloves & hypothermia can happen in 30 minutes or less.

Okay, I do get that we have idiots living here who think it's the 'manly' thing to brave the weather but seriously, I hope no one here is that stupid. Maybe they are & I've never met them.

I'm just so tired of this cold & snow.

Florida or Tennessee, here I come.
