Well, less than two years to go, and counting down.
It's been very cold in OurTown, certainly not unseasonably, but Global Warming had me envisoning a snow free winter. The last week has disabused me of that false hope. Lost's of snow, shovel-ready stimulus snow. This morning there's been a bit of melt, not much. My POS/SUV has been in the shop allegedly to repair suspension issues. My mechanic returned it to me this morning further depleting my assets by the GDP of Tobago--and the suspension noises and vibrations that were to be repaired are worse than when I dropped the car off 10 days ago.
I was running errands for the "Super Lawyer"--when I got back to her hovel, here, on the Lake, the mailman had left me a certified mail notice. The mail truck was still on the curb several houses down, and so I trudged through the snow to claim my certified letter from the Supreme Court. Mr. Postal Delivery-guy was in the holiday spirit asking me about how great the "law business" is. I could only laugh. You should see my face, now as I type, a wry smile, a sour smile?
Blessed are the poor in spirit!
Thus far I'm haivng a blessed 2009, Thank God, it's over!
I do hope 2010 is healthy, prosperous and happy for you, your friends and your families.
