Happy Ground Hog Day

Hello friends,
Yes, it is that time of the year. Get out all your Ground Hog decor and deck the halls! I have already watched Ground Hog Day movie will Andie and about you? What are you doing to commemorate this day? Some folks are diggin out of a huge snow. We lived in the Syracuse, NY area for about 2 years back in the 80s. What a surprise to find snow every day from October to May!!! talk about shock. Snow hell is what we called the area, but in truth, we made many dear friends, shopped at Wegman's, actually rode on the Erie Canal and found it was not a waste of time and also, it made us appreciate all the more living in the Carolinas....where we will have a high in the 70s today....thankyouverymuch. The birds are chirping and spring has sprung....well, maybe not yet, but it looks promising!
We cannot believe that we have owned our home for almost 23 years! We never thought we would live anywhere that long. Just never entered our thought process as we were the proverbial rolling stones. I like moving to new places, seeing new things, meeting new friends, new shopping venues, new and exciting. Our kids did not feel the same. oh well. Anyhow, we are officially granite these days...solidly to stay. We give up. We will have to make HOME IMPROVEMENTS. Those two words have never really entered our vocabulary until just recently. Paul and I looked at each other and said..."well, if we are staying (no ifs), then we need to re-side the house, paint the inside and outside, new hardward, new counter tops....oh it goes on and goodness, we had no idea. we were just going to slink off on a new adventure and wham-o....we didn't get to slink anywhere! At our advanced ages we are officially grown ups. Oh, and by the way, I HATE THE MONIKER "SENIOR CITIZEN". DO NOT EVER CALL ME THAT, PUT ME IN THAT GROUP OR OTHERWISE MAKE MENTION OF MY ADMISSION TO THAT "CLUB"! ok, rant over.
So, this post had no photos but lots of ranting. and a bit of weather info on sunny Syracuse....
