  • My drinks stay cold when I put them on the window sill
  • No bugs
  • Astro, my dog, takes care of his business outside much quicker
  • Don't have to mow the lawn
  • Trash can doesn't stink
  • When I trip, I can blame it on the ice
  • I can, technically, walk on water
  • That pesky sun doesn't shine all damn day
  • I appear somewhat hearty to my warm weather friends on Facebook
  • And finally, I rarely have to "adjust" my stuff

In any kind of normal non pandemic winter, I would have some kind of warm destination in mind. Unfortunately, it appears things are not going to be suitable to vacation this winter.  Hope we can all have a good winter under the circumstances.  Stay warm!
