2014.0214 An Act of Kindness

With all the shoveling I did yesterday, I did not finish the final 8 feet of the driveway where the snow plow left 3 feet of packed snow.
... I cleared a path for tire tracks and then took a moment to catch my breath. Just then a jeep with a snow plow drove past, and I wished he'd stop and come back.

Two houses down from me he stopped ... and backed up. He opened his window and said, "Are you a vet?" I said, "No." He said, "Ah, it doesn't matter. Get out of the way, I'll take care of this for ya." He did my whole driveway. ... I yelled to him, "Before you leave, I'm going to throw some bucks at ya. Find a vet who could use the money."

All ready for Karaoke, but then...

More snow was forecast but it never showed up. Instead the freezing cold weather caused extensive damage to trees and consequentially falling limbs took out electricity in 700,00 homes, including ours.

2014.0203 Procrastination
These branches fell just as I started to shovel the driveway

I first played a few hands of solitaire to work up my guilt to get out there and shovel the driveway. Six inches of snow later, I forced myself to face this awesome task. Then, just as I was stepping out of the garage ... WHOMP ... several branches broke off and fell three feet in front of me. Had I played one less hand of solitaire, they'd have fallen on me. Procrastination is my friend.

It took two hours to blow six inches of heavy wet snow off the driveway and by the time I finished the spot were I started had accumulated another inch. Came in the house - cold, tired, and hungry. So exhausted, I couldn't find the energy to make lunch. And then I thought how nice it would be to have some hot, tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. Thank you Campbell's. The mere thought of your piping hot tomato soup provided the motivation I needed to make this lunch.
2014.0117 My Twin
My cousin just sent me these photos and asked if this was my twin. Thought you'd enjoy 'em as well. By the way, Ralph and Jackie (the producers of MYcroNATION) have been working toward making the pilot sitcom into a full feature movie. They said, "We are hoping to have a feature script done next month and then we're going for financing."
