good morning Everyfriend!  We had snow overnight!  I'm not sure how much there is out there but the sidewalks are covered but you cn see grass through what's covering it.  I don't think I'll need my shovel which is a good thing because I don't think I could handle it right now.  The a key on the typewriter is a challenge for me.

I hope you all have a lovely day!   I'm hoping to make a stop at the post office on my way to pick up Kiran today so I can mail my packages to Texas.  I'm hoping the snow is finished for now. 

well, mynice neighbor across the street just finished blowing all the snow off my driveway and I see the plow has been down my road.  So I guess I'm in business! 

Lloyd, thanks for the reminder!  I've read that before but it bears repeating!

Subject: AND THEN IT IS WINTER......



  AND THEN IT IS WINTER...
 
THIS IS RIGHT ON THE NOSE. .......READ IT SLOWLY... I DON'T KNOW WHO WROTE IT, BUT I AM GUESSING IT WAS A SENIOR!!!
I FIRST STARTED READING THIS EMAIL & WAS READING FAST UNTIL I REACHED THE THIRD SENTENCE. I STOPPED AND STARTED OVER READING SLOWER AND THINKING ABOUT EVERY WORD.
 
AND THEN IT IS WINTER
 
You know. . . Time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years.
 
It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life.. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams. But, here it is... The winter of my life and it catches me by surprise...How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go?
 
I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like. But, here it is...my friends are retired and getting grey - or gone...they move slower and I see an older person now. Some are in better and some worse shape than me...but, I see the great change....Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant...but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd be.
 
Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore... it's mandatory! 'Cause if I don't on my own free will...I just fall asleep where I sit!
 
And so...now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!
 
But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last...this I know - that when it's over on this earth...it's NOT over A new adventure will begin!
 
Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done...things - I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in a lifetime.
 
So, if you're not in your winter yet...let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly! Don't put things off too long!
 
Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether this is your winter or not! You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life...so, live for today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember...and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!
 
"Life" is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one.
 
LIVE IT WELL! ENJOY TODAY! DO SOMETHING FUN! BE HAPPY! HAVE A GREAT DAY!
 
REMEMBER:..... "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.
 
"LIVE HAPPY IN THIS YEAR AND EVERY YEAR! LASTLY, CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING: TODAY IS THE OLDEST YOU'VE EVER BEEN, YET THE YOUNGEST YOU'LL EVER BE SO - ENJOY THIS DAY WHILE IT LASTS.
 
~Your kids are becoming you.......
~Going out is good... Coming home is better!
~You forget names.... But it's OK because other people forgot they even knew you!!!
~You realize you're never going to be really good at anything.
~The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don't care to do them anymore.
~You sleep better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than in bed. It's called "pre-sleep".
~You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch.

~Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere.
~You notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!!
~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.

~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet.... 2 of which you will never wear.
~But Old is good in some things: Old Songs, Old movies, and best of all, OLD FRIENDS!!
 
Stay well, "OLD FRIEND!"
 
Send this on to other "Old Friends!" and let them laugh in AGREEMENT!!!

Shan was also in to the vets for his last distemper booster and a one year rabies shot. I must have mistaken the vet the last visit as I thought he said Shan couldn't have a rabies shot until he was one. His next rabies shot will be the three year kind. He seems to be flea free now, so the vet says I don't have to use any flea stuff on my cats now unless I see a resurgence. Yea! Shan's next trip will be around the end of January for his snipping and his microchip.

We got a little snow overnight, not more than an inch I would say. The temp is now 28F, and it is only supposed to get to 33F today. Looks like the cold weather has truly set in for a while.
