Good Morning All ~

Wish I had the time to post more these days, but unfortunately I'm still swamped with essential personal chores and activities.

(((Pros))) ~ Thanks for your beautiful springtime graphic. I assume this collage of crocuses is taken from your own beautiful garden that's generated quite early this year? Unfortunately, last weeks glorious summer-like weather has caused many gardens and trees to bloom too early and might have quite a negative effect on them now that much chillier more seasonal temps have returned during the day, interspersed with a few expected sub-freezing temps overnight. OUCH!

Additionally, we've been experiencing quite the dry spell for most of the winter till now, therefore, fire hazard warnings are up for most of our Commonwealth. For those of you who live around here and are in an area of much brush and tinder, please try to either safely remove it or keep a very close eye out for any type of sparks. Let's hope we can escape from any unexpected serious windstorms till, hopefully, enough April showers will finally find its way to our region.

Hope everyone is doing well right now and has a pleasant week ahead in spite of any possible miserable weather forecasted. Take care and take any/all precautions if necessary.

Good Evening and Happy St. Patty's Day Everyone!

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such terrific St. Patty's Day posts! Today was a bit of a solemn one for me, as I learned last night from a close friend of mine who lives in Arkansas, that his older brother passed away from a massive heart attack on Thursday at age 64. His brother was a Vietnam Vet who suffered greatly from post traumatic stress disorder, etc. all the years after returning from war. My longtime friend, since childhood, has also had to overcome so many other earlier tragedies in his life and, yet, his deep abiding faith, inner strength, close family ties and friendships seem to have helped him considerably while overcoming all these sudden losses or traumas. As always, my thoughts and prayers remain with him, and all those friends who are suffering, today and every day.

On a much lighter note,



Bogon, Gamma, Barefoot and Weatheringpoints ~

Hope you've all had a wonderful St. Patty's Day and that, weatherwise, the upcoming week will provide you, too, with enough sunshine, spring-like warmth, and only gentle winds, if any, at your backside!

Looks like we're in store for an unusually warm and sunny 70ish degree weather week! What a great start to spring's official arrival on Tuesday. Hard to believe that it's still March! Hope this great weather remains for most of spring into summer. We could all use some great weather and news these days! Stay safe and healthy till the next time!

I'm partial to the Louis Armstrong version, too. This one makes a good second choice.

Hope your preview of spring resumes soon. I'm getting a preview of summer, which is something I don't really need!

Good Afternoon (((Ally))), Bogon and All!

Whew, I've finally been able to successfully update my blog header after a few miserably fruitless tries! Lately, I've had to revert to the Classic Wunderground since the modern version has also been messing up on me with Internet Explorer interruptions. I hope this doesn't remain a daily situation! ARGH!

As my blog header reads, "What a Difference a Day Makes", in terms of a 25F degree overnight temperature drop to a present 46F degrees! BRRR! We've been spoiled too soon! LOL! Luckily, this should last only today and tomorrow before things warm up again (to 60F )beginning on Saturday, St. Patty's Day! Certainly not enough, though, for any Erins out there to go completely braughless! LOL!

Last night, we fell right into the collision course of separate cold and warm fronts (one descending from the New Brunswick region of Canada and the other ascending from our Southeastern portion of the States)! It created quite the lightning and thunderboomer show around here! Fortunately, no damaging wind or hail was associated, in my neck of the woods, but some of Worcester County, MA took a beating with quarter sized hail, etc. Hope there was no serious destruction involved in that area, as parts of neighboring regions are still greatly suffering from all the devastation caused by a large tornado cutting a 20 mile swath in Central Mass. last June 1st!!

(((Ally))) - So glad to hear from you again and welcome to the "sixties"! Sorry that I'm not referring to the 1960's, but hopefully our new decade in life won't be as turbulent! LOL!
I reached the same major milestone in January and am slowly adapting to some of the psychological and physical changes that have been occuring. The only thing I miss is some of my stamina from yester-years.

Hope you had a wonderful celebration on Monday and that you'll continue to visit your friends on WU from time to time! Your refreshing humor is sorely missed!

Bogon ~ Hey there, good buddy! Sorry I haven't been able to visit your blogsite lately, as I'm having some trouble even visiting my own. LOL! I always love your brand of humor, interesting posts and great musical tastes! Thanks for sharing them with me here, as it truly brightens my day! Just love Tony Bennett paired with KD Lang, no matter what they sing, but especially when singing one of my all-time favorite tunes orginally sung by the late great Louis Armstrong, Jr.!!! Perfect Youtube selection!

Good Afternoon All!

Taking a break from an extremely hectic am and early afternoon to say hello, respond to your wonderful posts below and announce our glorious "Current Weather Conditions!"

It's like the lovely month of middle to late May around here, and I've just opened up a few of our windows so to bask in the warmth of the sun and fresh air! AHHHH! Boy, I've needed that! LOL!

Plap ~ Hope that you won't have to make use of any rainboots or apparel today or for, at least, a week and our currently sunny, warm spring like temps are spread up and throughout your region of La Prairie, Canada! If so, what a perfect day to be outside and to take an enjoyable walk with Abbey! No muck and mire! Wait till it rains again before you resume baking those yummy brownies again!

Briar ~ I truly yearn for the little things in life to be the "big things", as the truly "big things" in family life have well occupied my mind, body and spirit of late. I'm hoping that my very elderly father-in-law can overcome the fatigue left by his recent bout with an intestinal bug and find the strength to resume some of his normal activities. His overall health issues and transporation problems are now occupying much of our time. At least, his wife is still being well cared for in a nursing home, but her age-related mental/physical conditions keep rearing their ugly head. She has her good days and bad days now, but it's sad watch the effects it's having on her and loved ones.

As with anything and everything, we can only take one day at a time and make the most of it! I, for one, am thankful for all the wonderful support and camaraderie found from my good friends on WU. Sorry I haven't been able to post as often as before, but understandably, age and circumstances have caught up with as well.

As I mentioned earlier on NEw's site today, (HI THERE GOOD BUDDY!), I'm curious to know how our summer season will play out given the unusually mild winter season and the seemingly warmer than usual spring to come (it officially arrives next Tuesday!) Whatever hot temps come our way come summertime, I'll be happy just as long as they don't resemble last year's horrific heatwave/drought of Texas! Heaven forbid!! One never knows what hazards Mother Nature has in store for us year to year or month to month anymore.

Hope most of you are experiencing a wonderfully warm early-springlike day, like I currently am, and get to find the time to bask in some warm sunshine while breathing in some nice fresh warm air! TAKE A BREAK ON ME! LOL!

Good morning Mass.
Briar's post is so true.
I have a pair of hip wader left over from the working days, probably dried out and leaky by now, but still have a pair of rubber boots that would have kept my feet dry. Just too lazy to dig them out.
Enjoy the day.

Yeppee, Mass is happy about the daylight saving time! I am so glad that you and the rest of us, finally have an extra hour to enjoy our beautiful world.

We have a cold but gloriously sunny day. My heart sings with all of the sunshine. I hope yours is also.

Happy Sunday to you my friend.

Good Morning Plap and All!

Yesterday morning, we awoke to slightly below freezing temps with some snow on the ground and, just one day later, no signs of snow, sunshine and temps expected to reach near 62F!! What a difference a day or a week can make! It looks like the slight snowfall of yesterday was the last remnant of winter's effects and an earlier spring is expected to remain! WHOO-HOO! Most everyone I know in my age group around here wishes this much milder winter could be a permanent event! Just hope we don't end up paying for it next winter!

.................

So thrilled that Daylight Savings Time has arrived at long last to help us conserve further on energy and lift our spirits! What's also exciting is that earlier spring-like temps are expected to return this week to accompany our time change! Can't wait till it's once again warm enough to open up a few windows for more naturally fresh warm air to replace the staleness accrued over the winter months! AHHHH!

As has been the norm these past few months, I have some important errands to run today, but hope to get back online, either later today or tomorrow, to post more overdue hellos to my good buddies on WU. In the meantime, may you all be well and remain safe from harm's way!

ave a good day.

Good Morning Bogon and All!

Yesterday's warmspell certainly gave us a wonderful taste of what's soon to arrive more permanently! Nearby Lawrence, MA actually reached a recorded 71F degrees! Naturally, all traces of snow have either melted or evaporated from the ground. It was wonderful to finally be able to open up a couple of our home's windows and allow some natural fresh warm air to permeate. AHHHH! Spring hopes eternal. LOL!

I thought I'd post a terrifically applicable tune as to the feelings I have about spring's earlier effects and those longer daylight hours which will arrive on Sunday! HOOOO-RAAAAY!! LOL! BRING IT ALL ON!!

An old tune sung by one of our favorite once highly popular female Boston singers who made good. Actually, she still has a great singing voice!

..

I think I can adjust to the current return to chillier weather for just a couple more days before warmer temps arrive again on Sunday (Daylight Savings Time) and through most of next week. WHOO-HOO on so many levels!!! I, too, am so thrilled about the resulting reduction in home heating costs this year in the Northeast! I think a majority of us wish this type of milder winter would remain permanent as well! Last year's historical deluge of snow, etc. just plumb wore us out.

Sadly, my 90 year old father-in-law caught the stomach virus that's been going around, especially, in nursing homes (where my mother-in-law's residence is in quarantine) and other senior centers. My hubby and I are carefully monitoring him daily and, therefore, I won't be able to post too much for the next few days. Hope that those of you who've caught this recent end of season revenge remember to check in with your doctor and be sure to take some replenishing liquid electrolytes (Gatorade, etc.) which is so essential in preventing further dangers, such as dehydration.

Till my next posting, may you all stay safe, warm and healthy!

Hi, Mass. Thanks for the explanation about the all terrain vehicle. I certainly never put it to the test, but I expect one of those little six-wheeled go carts would do well in snow, as long as the road didn't ice over or drift too deep. ATVs put a lot of rubber on the road, but they don't have much ground clearance.

Your sidebar tells me that it's sixty degrees at your place at 10:30 am. Under those conditions all the white frozen wintery stuff must be gone soon. That's bound to help your outlook. Hold on to your hat in the March wind, though! Had to tighten up my hat band when I went walking yesterday. Luckily I didn't have to chase the hat far. d:o)

Good Morning All!

Firstly, I want to thank Bogon for supplying me with hearty gaffaws, this am, with his post #4! LOL!!!
Quoting Bogon:
Twenty miles on an ATV? Go, Mass!

Last Thursday, my non-functioning brain's description of my all-wheel drive vehicle (Forester) as a "small still functioning all-terrain vehicle," or an ATV, really was a hoot!!! BAAA-WHAAA! I'm now picturing hubby and I on an ATV, bundled up, wearing goggles, with him desperately clinging to my backside, as I squint to navigate my way through 20 sleet and snow-filled miles of car mishaps each way during the storm last week. I'm still thankful I wasn't one of those mishaps! WHEW! Under the circumstances, though, it was an honest mistake given the fact that, with all that's been going on in the homefront this past month, I feel lucky to be able to still recognize our car at all. LOL!

Quoting Alleyoops:
Happy March MASS. How did you manage to get snow when all we got here was rain? I would have thought it would have been warm enough there too. We were up in the mid to high 40s yesterday, today its a little cooler with overcast skies but otherwise not bad. Tomorrow is going up into the 50s then Sat is again in the mid 40s with brisk winds. March winds bring April showers...and blowing trash from the neighbors...bah humbug.

Take care of yourself dear one, don't over do things...BIG HUGS

(((Alley))) ~ I'm glad that, for a change, your area of Canada escaped any of the icy mix that swept through these parts last week. We've been fortunate, since then, to have had a nice warm-up to near 50F and are now expecting, dare I say it, real springlike temps of 62 on Thursday!!! Fingers crossed, as I really don't mind losing any remaining signs or scenes of winter with daylight savings time less than a week away and spring's official arrival in just two weeks! Bring on the warmth, sunlight and less confused buds of spring, as I believe we're both ready for the best of the upcoming season!!

Hope you're doing well and have more ambition or luck, than I do right now, in tackling those remaining indoor/outdoor chores that have accumulated through the winter months and still await. Believe me, I need all the inspiration I can get! LOL! Big hugs!

Below, are posts from my previous Feb. blog that were left since my last posting:

Quoting OGal:


Hi Mass sounds like you are in for some not so much fun stuff tonight. I guess it had to hit ya sooner or later. Just keep your ears open and listen to that weather radio. Fingers crossed for you that it is not too bad.


Quoting Proserpina:Hey Mass, sorry about the storm headed your way. Please stay warm and safe. Remember, spring is around the corner. Hugs my Aquarius sis.


Quoting Proserpina:





Good Morning All and Thanks O'Gal and Pros for your lovely posts and well wishes!!

Fortunately, we've caught a break this morning in the two separate snowy weather systems that have been sweeping through here since late yesterday afternoon. All 'n all, we've only received about four inches of, now slushy-type, snow and the main streets have remained fairly bare. I'm truly thankful for that, as I have to drive 20 miles this afternoon to an appointment I couldn't cancel out. I'm not concerned, as hubby and I own a still functioning all-wheeled drive vehicle.

This weekend, Saturday in particular, we could be experiencing another warmup to near 50 or above, which would be like, as one local newscaster put it, "a tale of two seasons" within the first week of March. It certainly would help melt down any remaining traces of snow. Hope this rings true, as I'm jumpin' at the bit to experience true warmth, sunshine, greenish/brown grass and fresh warmer air again! The lovely picturesque scenes of snowfall on the ground might look lovely to watch from indoors, but aren't too pleasant to drudge through anymore while outside.

Hope all of you who post or lurk today are doing well and weren't affected by the severe weather that overtook certain states in recent days. My heart is with them and you!

P.S. (((Pros))) ~ I did a double take after posting this, as I could have sworn that I transferred your pic from my previous blog to here. I did, I did!! LOL! Thanks again for the beautiful springtime photo graphic you posted of what could loom ahead for many of us in the next few weeks or so!
