Ludlow: February warm-up a welcome relief
As I’m writing this, the weather forecasters are predicting 40 degrees, which will be a welcome reprieve from our winter cold, if only for a day or so.
Maybe some of the white stuff on the ground will be gone by the time this is published. But, it is February and there is bound to be more on the horizon. We haven’t actually had that much snow this winter, although I will probably regret saying that because there’s a lot of winter left yet.
Mother Nature does have a mind of her own and will do whatever she sees fit. I am just rooting for an early spring.
But then again, I do that every year. Golfers tend to be like that.
Speaking of golf, I just checked my car trunk and my clubs are still in there. I thought I had brought them in for the winter. I will bring them in for the rest of the cold season. My dad always told me that it wasn’t good for them to be out in the cold for too long.
I haven’t gotten a pocket calendar for 2018 yet this year and I have to do that. I have to keep track of things coming up or I don’t remember them.
I think that has something to do with age. The old brain just doesn’t retain things like it once did. But, in my opinion, it still basically works. At least I think it does, although some people may disagree with me on that. So far this week, I’ve forgotten a hair appointment, forgot to check my mail and almost forgot to eat supper and it’s only Wednesday.
¶ This is being written on Valentine’s Day and television is full of couples all happy, in love and celebrating the day with all sorts of hearts and flowers. Especially on the soaps that are still on the air. By tomorrow, they will all be back to fighting, arguing and facing one crisis after another.
So I hope everyone had a happy Valentine’s Day with their significant others. Mine was another normal day in February.
¶ I found this cute little story on the internet:
Two little boys were known troublemakers, stealing everything they could get their hands, even from the church. One day a priest stopped one of the boys and asked, “Where is God?”
The boy shrugged and the priest repeated, “Where is God?”
The boy ran out of the cathedral, crying, to his home, where he hid in a closet. Eventually his brother found him and asked, “What’s wrong?”
The crying boy replied, “We’re in trouble now! God is missing and they think we took him!”
Have a great week, everyone.
