November 6, 2011

I guess one could say I'm acclimated to warm weather.

It's down right cold down here. Temp was in 50s and with a high in 60s yesterday.

With a wind blowing at 20 knots, well you figure the wind chill....

I just know I was freezing. Had jeans, tee shirt, heavy long sleeve
shirt, and coat on. Was about ready to get the carharts out.

This week highs in low 70s, lows in low 50s, and I saw a 45 night time high on this coming Friday.

I may have to move further south.............LOL

Yesterday we picked up the Barngoddess1's new horse.
Sorry Longrooffan, but since she now has a horse, and it's too danged cold to go to the beach, we've changed her name back to Barngoddess1 from Beachgoddess.

Anyway, trip to place to pickup horse was uneventful. Barngoddess did tell me I am just like a Floridian.....

I asked what does she mean, her reply "Look at the speedometer".

I have to put the setting in place. I95, great interstate system between St. Aug and Daytona Beach, three lanes, smooth, wind at our back.

I was running with the flow of traffic. So glancing down, I am doing 80. No big deal right! It's beginning of month, you go 10 to 15 over speed limit. Now towards end of month, it's only 7-10 over that's allowed.

Picked up her horse, put in back of her Taurus and headed for Daytona. Now that we are headed into the wind, driving was totally different. Had to drive, not just steer.

Anyway after a great dinner with the Longroof, too bad the Jeep had other plans.

We got home and soon had the horse in place.

Vi and her horse

she named him copper cricket, after the one we used to have

and he has the place of honor in our front yard.

and being unable to do anyother yard work 'cause it's soooo cold, I am going to lay around and watch football.

Later all, and continue to celebrate life

even if it's cold

tom and viola
