  • You know, it might be that saying “I give you an inch of rope and you think you’re a cowboy” to my wife might not have been the smartest thing I’ve ever done.
    • Being married to an Irish redhead is a lot like having a large cat as a pet.  It’s all fun and games until they get that look in their eyes.
  • We’ve reached the Yo-Yo phase of weather here in Indiucky.
    • We’ve gone from beautiful spring to deep winter to ice to rain and back to sunshine.
    • If this keeps up, I expect to see fish falling from the sky any day now.
  • At the same time, every plant within 25 miles is trying to strangle me, so I’ve got that going for me.
    • “Day of the Triffids” and “Little Shop of Horrors” have nothing on “Let’s Make It Painful for Tom to Breathe!”
  • The other day, I decided to remove the Facebook app from my phone.  I just wanted to see what its absence would feel like.
    • I am not joking when I say that not being able to pull my phone out during a quiet moment and check on my feed was a lot like the times I’ve gone without coffee for several days.  It may be what it’s like the first few days someone quits smoking.
    • I still check FB from my laptop a couple times a day, but by the end of the week I wasn’t feeling like I needed to open the app several times a day.
  • Boo has begun taking lessons in jiu-jitsu, or as I call it, “Hugging it out at combat speed.”
    • He’s enjoying himself, and if nothing else, it gives him exercise a couple times a week.

    Hey DB;

    Yep, remember Redheads are kryptonite to mortals. Also here in GA the weather is the same, the trees and plants can’t make up their mind which way to go.

    Here in Philly I have pushed the date to summerize the snow thrower back to maybe Memorial Day.
    My statement that we couldn’t possibly get snow this late in the year was taken as a “hold my beer” challenge by the weather gods.
