Thank you for all the kind “Welcome Backs”

Thank you!: You folks sure give me a nice warm feeling of being welcome back to bogging, please give me a bit of time to catch up on things in all your blogs. I have tried to do a little catching up today but there is so many good post!

Health: Over the holidays (actually since spring) me and the Doctors had to fuss a bit over getting my blood pressure under control but we did get there. Of course, the reason it is high is that I have been very much losing my ongoing battle with weight. I am back to being bear size … but hey, I am a very lovable bear you know! All right, all right I say, all you folks that really know me, just shut up!!! LOL.

Night Folks



Happy New Years, and may all your resolutions be true.

Cold and Windy: It is up on us for sure. A long time ago there was a person that was in my life that was both my best friend and lover, and as we laid down in bed one night she said these words that made me smile “Brrrr, I hear that cold north wind blowing.”. For some reason these words fell on my ears that night with great warmth and satisfaction as we snuggled close together. Now, when it is cold and windy I always remember that cold and beautiful winter night and for just a brief moment, a warm satisfying feeling flows through me …… and I smile. Maybe 30 years ago? …… a long time ago at any rate. Odd, the silly things that stick in one’s mind.

The wind has kicked up pretty high this afternoon and the temperature is dropping, feels like winter. Weatherman says it will dip just below freezing tonight. I guess I’ve got to expect some of that even here 😦 It’ll pass soon enough.

I’ll get some more of this in April when I take off for Grants, NM to my summer volunteering job. Looking at the weather averages for April in Grants, it looks like it will hit that just below freezing about every night for the month. The weather won’t be to my liking till about June in Grants.

Night folks and Happy New Years:
