Soon we will be a$$ deep in the white chit here, and once again I will have to wrestle mother nature for the right to remain on the road for my 60 mile round trip to work.
I really think I may have been switched at birth, and somewhere down south there is someone who absolutely loves cold weather.

89-Year-Old Woman Accused Of Theft Over FootballBLUE ASH, Ohio -- An 89-year-old Ohio woman faces a charge of petty theft because neighborhood children said she refused to give back their football.
Edna Jester was placed under arrest last week and taken to the police station in Blue Ash.Police say there had been an ongoing dispute over the errant football and a child's parent called to report that Jester kept the ball after it landed in her yard again.
“I'm 89 years old and I want a little piece of mind,” Jester said. “This is my life here in this chair, looking out that door, and all I see is playing the ball down and all over and all over. If it doesn't come in my yard, OK, but if it comes in my yard, I'm going to get it. No trespassing.”
Blue Ash Police Capt. James Schaffer said Monday that police warned Jester twice and finally arrested her after she refused to accept a citation."She chose to take a stand," Schaffer said, saying she told police to handcuff her, but they wouldn't do that.He said Jester wasn't a troublemaker, but that police had been to the neighborhood several times to try to mediate similar disputes.
“The actual rule is if you take the property of another and convert it to your own use, it's theft,” Schaffer said. “She was told by the police two times, give the ball back or you face criminal charges, and she refused to do so.”
Jester must appear in mayor's court next month.“I'm not giving the ball up, no,” Jester said.
“That's the only protection I have. They know if it comes in my yard I'll get it, and that keeps them off of me a little.”The football, valued at $15, is being held for evidence, Schaffer said.
The potential maximum penalty for a petty theft conviction in Ohio is six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.Schaffer said he suspects the mayor or presiding magistrate will take into account her age and lack of criminal record when the case comes up.“We don't like arresting 89-year-old women,” Schaffer said. “We don't like going into neighborhood disputes like this, and taking them to the extreme, but some times you're backed into a corner.”
Maybe its just me, but it seems a little extreme, for her to be facing 6 months in jail, plus a fine, when the little brats were repeatedly caught trespassing.

Thanks, says the guy, "It's the cutting edge of technology. I can telepathically ask this watch anything I want to know, and it'll answer me, telepathically."
"Rubbish," says the girl.
"No, it's true," says that guy. "Look, tell you what, I'll prove it. I'll ask it if you've got any panties on."
The guy scrunches up his eyes for a moment, as if concentrating hard to talk to his watch, then opens them and says, "Nope, it says you haven't got any panties on."
"Well, it's wrong," says the girl, "I do have panties on."
"Damn," says the guy, slapping his watch, "it's an hour fast!"

Poison – Every Rose has It’s Thorn
in the dead of the night
Although we both lie close together
We feel miles apart inside
Was it something I said or something I did
Did the words not come out right
Though I tried not to hurt you
Though I tried
But I guess that's why they say
Every rose has its thorn
Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has its thorn
Yeah it does
I listen to our favorite song
playing on the radio
Hear the DJ say loves a game of easy come and
But I wonder does he know
Has he ever felt like this
And I know that you'd be here somehow
If I could have let you know somehow
Though it's been a while now
I can still feel so much pain
Like a knife that cuts you the wound heals
but the scar, that scar remains
I know I could have saved a love that night
If I'd known what to say
Instead of makin' love
We both made our separate ways
But now I hear you found somebody new
and that I never meant that much to you
To hear that tears me up inside
And to see you cuts me like a knife
