as a bit of humor i posted this in TEG but i'll put it here too as it is worth a few chuckles:
this morning Mom calls one of her friends to wish her a Merry Christmas and all that... after talking a few moments the friend says she'll call her back. so Mom is waiting there and the phone rings and she picks it up and says, "Did you have to tinkle?" (no hello or any other greeting) dead silence...
it was my Dad calling to talk. so she told him i was in the shower.
there was no snow here at all, kinda misty/foggy at night because it has been so warm out but the ground is cold. i went out to do some weeding a bit ago and found out the ground is actually frozen about 5-6 inches down.
