Eastward Ha!

Well, we did it. We got in the car and drove from Minneapolis to Long Island. Made good time, too- 22hours-- despite rain and sleet and snow and jack knifed tractor trailers, not to mention Chicago. And a state trooper or two, but them's the breaks.

We arrived on LI to find the wind chills every bit as sub-zero here as they were back in Minnesota. Our relatives, of course, are blaming us. Where is global warming when you could really use it? I had a peek at my niece's 11th grade "Environmental Science" textbook. According to them global warming is a real and present danger. Hello, textbook publishers- I'm not even going to ask you to read the research that proves your theor is hooey. I'm just saying, it might be a good idea to look out the window once in a while.

But enough about current events. Only two more days 'til Christmas. It's good to be back home.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas! But really you leave MN for one day and the loons darn near give that senate seat to Franken!

Merry Christmas. (I know what you mean about Global Warming. It's barely 60F here in Miami! BRRR!)
