Must retire – the 0500 Reveille approaches relentlessly.

The Bugler, his grim visage replete with an evil sneer, already mounts the parapet.

Do poor Tom some charity, whom the foul fiend vexes!



All Gave Some – Some Gave All!!!

Good night, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe – especially those in harm’s way – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

That would have been my first guitar, 49 years ago. A HUGE arch-top Harmony from Sears with 1/4 action!

It took 47 years to get a Les paul, but it was worth the wait.

Much like the winter of 1975-76. Bitter cold, little snow and major glaciation problems.

Good evening, Mayor, and thanks for today’s sustenance for body and soul. Is any of the ugly, stormy weather headed for you?

Are you home for Christmas? Traveling? Entertaining family/company? ((HUGS))

Lack of snow cover/insulation, allows seeping water to freeze creating a dam until the water flows over the top, freezing, creating a higher dam, and a repeat until the "glacier" gets 1,2,3,4,etc., feet thick. Especially a problem on mountain roads. Glaciation can also be a problem on creeks and smaller rivers.

Hey Ma. It’s -44 here. We had a reading at North Pole of -48 earlier.

When I was here last time, the lowest temp I experienced was -56.

We are getting closer.

But, if the world doesn’t end today, we will start gaing daylight again.

That’s right....the world is ending. So far it’s only -3 at my house.

And you are right...a little more daylight every day now.
