Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Sunny and 75 in Missouri

I knew that would get your attention,really it’s only 68 here in the house. 

The week started out with snow and cold the only good thing was we got Monday and Tuesday off because of the weather,it’s nice working for a church. It’s really great they would have a misfit like me working there. We also get this Monday off for Martin Luther King, birthday it’s kind of like working at a bank with all the holiday’s we get off.

Anyway Tuesday it was so cold.   How cold was  it?  it was so cold I had to bring the brass monkey in. Ok I know that was lame, but hey that was the best I can come up with..

Looks like I didn’t bring him in soon enough..

Today I thought about going to the hot tub and pool for a quick dip just like Rick  Rick & Paulette's  RV Travels . I put my Speedo swim suit on and stepped outside and BURR it was cold. I changed my mine real quick, I must have gotten wrapped upped  reading  Ricks blog. Yes that is a hot tub on the right top deck and that is a pool lower left deck under all the snow.

We hope everyone has a good and safe week and for the ones of us that are in the deep freezer stay warm and for the ones that are in the warm weather keep writing and sending us pictures so that we can dream and live thru you.   

ONE DAY CLOSER TO OUR DREAM

Same on the other end of MO. It got into the forties yesterday but is back in the 20's for a couple days now, I think if we have the kids next weekend I will take them to the Mississippi River to see the Bald Eagles that winter there and nest and fish below the Alton Dam. Not much going on. The fur babies are fine. Be safe out there . Sam & Donna.

Wow! Do I ever feel lucky to be sitting here in the desert sunshine. Your place looks pretty darned cold with the snow covering your pool and hot tub - horrors, what a thought. Thanks for the shoutout! Hope your temps start to get at least a little warmer there, but, I guess it is winter!
