Sorry about the long delay, but as the following pics show, it's been a "vigorous" winter. Put another way, the Cape got clobbered, I don't have a snow blower, and I'm addicted to Aleve.
I don't know about you, but I for one have reached the insane when it comes to winter and snow -- I've shoveled/meandered/stumbled/slogged/fell through so much snow/ice/slush that it doesn't matter any more. Soreness and even pain are foregone conclusions. Bruised coccyx? Whoopee! Turn up the music, don the layers, and wander into the abyss. This is the kind of weather that will give one "Pop-Eye Forearms" and put fur on the eyeballs. Post-twenty-degrees? Break out the suntan lotion and head for the nearest nudist beach at 2AM!!!
No, I don't give a rat's patoot what the weather does... If it doesn't kill me, it simply makes me crazier. So, let's go... Let's have another blizzard or two...
(Note that below I used 'Pencil Sketch' to highlight the features of what was my usually atrocious photograph... All of that snow pile, and then some more was shoveled of the deck by moi...)
Ahh... the driveway...
'Natch that I had to dig paths to feed the birds... Must be nice to be able to fly over this stuff...
And finally, here's another shot of the driveway and mailbox... (Yes, there's a car behind that mound of snow!)
Yes, it's been a fun winter, and now I think my hernia's son, "Junior Hernia" is going to make a horror movie entitled, "I Ripped His Guts Out!!!"
I'll be the one in the body cast by the feeders...
