BELIEVE YOU CAN AND YOU'RE HALFWAY THERE.
NOTE: I messed up on Saturday and posted two posts instead of just one. Sister Sandy missed the first one published on Saturday (SIMPLY OUTRAGEOUS), and told me about it, so you can just back-up and check it out if you want.
Not much happening lately so I'm going to mention a little of this and a little of that. It's very cold here, but all you locals know that. (Jodi in California is still enjoying 70 degree weather and Betty C. in Missouri, says they average 50's this time of year - BOO-HOO). The grandkids' schools were cancelled today due to predicted wind chill danger (minus 45 degrees).
Talked to Jenna last night and she and Mike had their hands full (literally) delivering puppies from Mike's dog. Jen said Alec wandered into the garage right in the middle of things, and she asked if he knew what she was holding. "His answer was, "It's a RAT!" When she explained that it was a new born baby puppy, he wasn't impressed. He did come back later when more puppies were being born, but it still wasn't his thing. I'm with you, Alec, I would have stayed as far away as possible!
Saturday night and Sunday morning, I had some crazy-big Charlie Horse cramps in my feet and legs. I can handle your usual leg cramps, but these twisted my legs so badly, that Lon woke up, jumped up, and began rubbing my legs. Then he had me drink a small amount of pickle juice, and by golly, that really helped a lot!
Finally got to go to church yesterday, (I didn't make it last week). The weather was cold and windy, so the number of people who came was somewhat small. The highway in the curve of the road, right before I get to our church, was totally covered in blown snow, and I couldn't even tell where the road's edge was and where the ditch started. Sister Sandy called me last night and said that Dad was driving home to the farm (after dark) and ran off the road and slid into a ditch off the Center-Point/Central City road. He was okay, but his truck was stuck. Somebody came along and helped him get out of the truck. Then Dad called nephew Mark, and he came and took Dad and his groceries home. They are probably having the truck pulled out today. Thank goodness he didn't get hurt. That is the main thing!
If you have to go somewhere today, PLEASE be careful.
Hey, I will have to think up some names for Mike's new puppies!! Let's see: SNOWBALL, WHITE-OUT, CHRYSTAL, CHILLY, IGLOO, and SIMON (I've always liked the name, Simon).
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
