Trying to keep my eyes open. The students next door had a party last night and although it wasn't loud enough to complain about (not that that would have helped) is was apparently loud enough for me not feel fall asleep all the way. I woke up at 5.30 am and I still heard music softly! I'm now hoping the cold will keep the customers away and it'll be a quiet day, though chances are very slim of that happening.

Preparing a sacrifice to the Road Gods... They spared me once again.
This afternoon I was going down the road, and I saw a car backing out of driveway. It was going slowly so I didn't pay it much attention. But as I got closer, I noticed that the driver, a teenaged girl, was texting on her mobile phone! I was going too fast to stop before the driveway, so I goosed the throttle and shot past it just in case she wasn't planning on stopping. Good thing too, as she cleared my back fender by about 50 centemeters and continued backing right across my lane and into the far lane where she T-boned a car! Thank you, Road Gods, for keeping me safe!

I hope they take away her texting license!

Glad you are okay!

It will be here again, soon enough I'm sure. But the respite from "normal" winter weather here sure is nice.

I should probably go back to bed sometime in the very near future.

Glad you're OK, Stitchawl.

Thank the road gods if you wish, but also congratulate yourself a little on your observation and defensive driving skills.

Remind me of my wife - one of her first driving experiences was reversing off her parents' drive right into a neighbour's car on the opposite side of the road. Loud music was the culprit in her case. Glad to hear you made it safely through, and plus one for your observational skills.

Really warm here too! My sister convinced me we need to go kayaking today while it's so warm. I'm a little apprehensive -- I'm still in therapy for my shoulder and I'm not sure I should do it. I told her I'll go but I might just float a few feet off shore and she can do laps of the lake if she wants to.

Somewhere in the world recently the temperature has been less than absolute zero.

Reality just keeps getting stranger.

Take care of that shoulder, Betty, but have some fun of course.

After weeks and weeks of rain, it is dry today, but........minus one degree.
I just packed all my detective- and other pocketbooks in boxes. I am saving up for an iPad mini and the secondhand bookstore promissed me 50 cents per book, and I will deliver about 800= about 400 euro,and I've got money from my birthday about 150 euro, so my goal is near in sight, I hope.
