    A little tough to cross country....the snow melted creating an icy layer then 6 inches....don't really know where you might break through!!! We did cross country when we got some nice fluffy snow earlier this winter.

    I'm probably the only person (that I know of) who prefers to wake up in the dark. I wake up tired and drained and view the bright light in the morning to be mocking me... :p

    They are reorganizing everything in my grocery store--not expanding or renovating, just moving everything. I hate when they do that; I like to shop on auto-pilot!

    Sometimes I volunteer (or get "volunteered") to do some grocery shopping....... The list needs to be very straight forward ..... bread, milk, OJ, chips, beer, etc...... If it's complicate ... like Bobili pizza sause, my wife always tells me where to find it! Grocery stores are hard to negotiate............ :lol::lol:

    So...why is it that every time a vacation begins, I get sick? Here it is, first day of spring break, and I'm in bed with a nasty cold!

    This happens to me a lot too. My theory is that our body has been fighting off/powering through while we needed to be working, and the moment we get a rest the immune system decides to rest as well.

    According to my pre-med roommate, that's physiologically very legitimate, that during a time of stress your body will wait to get sick until the stress has subsided.

    I'm so glad you are feeling a bit better, swansong.

    I was sick in bed my entire spring break too. My family was a little disappointed that we couldn't get out and do stuff. I did finally manage to go shopping the very last day of spring break and that seemed to help the mood around the house. Unfortunately it's been 3 weeks since I started feeling sick and I still have some lingering symptoms. Doctor says its viral and could take a little while to get over. Teaching this week has been a little difficult since I have no voice and a terrible cough but we have managed. Feel better soon.

    I am sitting here thinking "Hey what am I chopped Liver?"

    Then I thought well I just bought a new tool system Black and Decker Matrix
    [​IMG]
    Since I don't drink I can't talk about any Alcoholic beverage
    I have talked about my 6 gun
    AND my grandchildren

    But you are right Major, there are less male type subjects here on AtoZ

    But I thought it was karma since I was a male chauvinist
