What I have learned about life...

Clarke and Brenda's Christmas 2009, Topeka, Kansas.

Here's what we really wanted for Christmas...

Here' s what we got....

and this...

and this...

HOWEVER, here's what I have learned about life.

When life gives you snow....

Make snow angels!!

Happy Holidays to you all.


Does that sound like sarcasm?
I can't tell.
I am sure that Brennie will post something nice with some pretty pics.

You know how an exclamation mark (!) means 'excitement' ?
Should there be an opposite sign that means complete lack of excitement?

The male opossum has a bifurcated (forked) penis.
The female's vagina is also bifurcated (2 channel).
Thrill your friends with that over your holiday dinner.

We Went to Kansas City for a Couple Days

Kansas City, MO is actually a very cool city.

We stayed at his place....very cool and in a great part of downtown. ......

Lots to do and a lot of different types of restaurants.
We usually share a meal....sometimes an assortment of appetizers.
That way we can be hungry sooner and try a different place.

Had a ball.
Going back soon.
I really like spending time with Brenda.
Now that is cool.

A Comment on Global Warming

Global Warming, My Ass!!

I took the dogs for their walk about 4:00 pm. It was maybe 12 or 13 degrees (F).

It can really make you feel alive though....especially when your skin thaws a half hour later and it gets that burning / ice needles thing going as feeling returns to your ears, fingers and toes. Really lovely.

OK....nice positive thoughts about bitter cold weather:
  • Reduced chance of heat stroke...duh.
  • The weeds in the yard are dead. (Maybe only dormant.)
  • You barely feel it when you hit your thumb with a hammer.
  • Blood coagulates faster on wounds.
  • Fewer overweight people wearing spandex.
  • No one expects you to be painting your house.
  • No mosquitoes, deer flies or horse flies.
  • Brennie makes GREAT soups and chili !!!!!!!
  • Save a bundle on air conditioning bills.
  • Better to stand outside naked than listen to Bing Crosby sing "White Christmas". That's right up there with watching the "Wizard of Oz".
  • Snuggling under a down comforter...oh yeah.
  • Everyone else has a cold too.
  • Hot chocolate with marshmallows.
  • No heat rash or poison ivy. In fact far fewer body rashes.

I Read That It Was 81 Degrees In Cuenca The Other Day

These Pics Were NOT Taken In Cuenca.

They were taken from our front porch in Topeka.
Just for fun, I used different camera settings.
Quite Jolly.
