a day not fit for man or beast
(cups by Gary Rith)
The weather guy in the newspaper tells us that this is the first January since 2003 when we have had snow cover every day of the month. He also tells us that the average temps for January are 9 degrees lower than usual. Then the weather lady on the radio tells us something about ten inches of new snow. You just sort of expect the weather to be awful in January, plus also February. And March. Maybe a little better in April, hoping for nice weather in May. So, you know, its all routine.
This new blog spot of mine (my first blog ran out of memory after 3,333 posts and 2 years and one month) is rapidly filling. I have used over 26 percent of its memory in 4-5 months, with no signs of slowing. :) SO, here's a short story for you. I had a phone call from a stranger in Virginia the other day. He had gotten the card from somebody who got it from somebody else. My cards are these messy little things I print on the computer. Or did, the printer hasn't been working lately (it was free, and 6 years old....but still!). So I was thinking 'man, what if I had a really nice business card, for the first time in my life, and I really passed them around???? Something people would remember and pass around'. So I ordered 1000 little beauties with a nice teapot photo. And this blog address on there. I was THEN thinking about how this blog will be used up about a year from now, and I better pass out those 1000 cards in the next 12 months. :) Then order 1000+ more. Maybe a different teapot pic on there, likely a different blog adress too.
SO, speaking of beasts, Spike is kissing Emily very sweetly, and then Emily tries to bite Spike's back leg and she jumps on him--Spike is twice her size and a whole lot smarter, but anyway.......
