A little at least. I usually take a walk every morning. I'd slacked off for a month and began again just prior to Dad moving in two weeks ago. Since then I've been out trekking four times. This morning I resolved to head out no matter the weather, my frame of mind or anything short of an ambulance being in the drive.
It was a little slippery but I had my cell phone in case I took a spill and couldn't get up. Wouldn't that bite?
The forecast for Lake Linden calls for a high of 25 but it's already 32 here at our paradise. Gotta love that lake effect warmth and half the snowfall!
Another real estate sign has popped up in the neighborhood. Seventeen acres that sold last year is up for sale at twice the price. Just over 500 feet of inland lake shore - but the DEQ won't permit building within any reasonable distance of the shoreline due to some wetland areas. Will be interesting to see if anyone bites.
Yesterday we watched the political race in Massachusetts. The Democrats had better pay attention. The Republican winner has an opportunity to take his message - and the underlying ramifications of it - and create a new momentum that puts all politicians on notice. The people are sick and tired of not being represented. There was much made of the Dems arrogance, their poor listening skills and the runaway spending. Today, what little news we listened to, talked of various "spins" regarding the Massachusetts race.
To put it bluntly, the time is ripening for a revolt by the people. And our so called representatives had better change course. Last night one news commentator essentially said the people are ready for a revolution. I seldom listen to the news so it was surprising to hear this.
Well enough of my limited political observation. I hate politics! Good thing I live in the boonies. If I were in Washington I'd likely be arrested.
We're working on a puzzle again today - cheap entertainment. When it's finished I'm going to post a picture of it. You'll see why - soon, I promise.
