Before I start my post for today I thought I’d celebrate for just a moment the 104th birthday of one of my favorite people, Ronald Wilson Reagan, our fortieth president.  Things have certainly gone downhill since he left the presidency and he is sorely missed.  Happy Birthday Mr. President!

My convalescence continues today after my colonoscopy. I was told to take it easy for a few days and I tend to listen closely to doctors who tell me to do things I enjoy doing. So a lazy day for catching up on emails, writing a little, and loafing a lot.  We’ve been given a one day reprieve by the weather gods with no snow anticipated.  Starting tomorrow we’re being warned of another damn snowstorm preparing to drop a foot or more of snow on us.  We already have so much snow we’re running out of places to put it.  These pictures were taken in the city of Biddeford, Maine yesterday and as you can see another foot of snow will make walking around town a real chore.

Our family group braved the cold weather last night and thoroughly enjoyed a meal at Famous Dave’s.  There were ribs, brisket, and sauces all around.  I’d been jonesing for catfish for the last two weeks and it was well worth the wait.  The grandson munched on his favorite meal of Mac and Cheese, pineapple chunks, and a few Oreo cookies. Top that off with a glass of chocolate milk and he was in hog heaven.   It was a great evening out even though the temps were near zero and the wind-chill even worse.

Our visitor from Los Angeles, my better-half’s oldest son, flies out today to return to the left coast.  He was greeted here by more snow than he’s seen for many years.  He’ll appreciate that California weather a lot more I’m sure.
