Where is Winter?

Hi folks, that is the big question. So far, we had 2 snowfalls amounting to about 1/2 inch. Everything you see in the following pictures is frost.. That's right, we received more frost than snow.

This past month, the temperatures have been below 0 degrees the coldest was -11 and the highest is 15 degrees which is today. We are still waiting for the snow. In the meantime, I really haven't been doing much because of the cold except, splitting wood.

I have been making a few trips to town just to get out. A couple of days ago, I bought a Lazy Boy rocker recliner for $50.
Well, that's pretty much it for now.  I am working on a post describing my first remote caretaking days. I'm hoping to have it done by next weekend. Thanks for visiting.

                                                 IN MEMORY OF

                                                 RAYMOND CORK
                                              EDWARD O'BRIAN
KILLED IN ACTION DEC. 4th 1967 while conducting gunfire support off the coast of Vietnam. Ray and Ed were my closest friends. We did just about everything together. I remember many nights we sat on the fantail (rear deck) of the ship on clear nights, the sky filled with stars talking about our sweethearts, our goals, our wishes. It would be peaceful until tracer fire would rip upwards from the enemy shooting at our aircraft as they drop bombs. There was always a reminder we were at war.

I thank all of my fellow Veterans who made sacrifices for there family, friends and strangers.

                                           ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL

                                               ANCHORS AWAY MY FRIENDS
