I Need a Dolla

Song of the day - Aloe Blacc ~ I Need a Dollar

Because we all do, it sounds like SUAR especially does.

Random 3 Things:

1. "Shit Sandwich" = my new favorite expression. Definition - if you look up each word in the dictionary it might leave question marks in your head. So, one of the buddies used it to describe what the town plows left at the end of a freshly snow blown drive; icy, snowy, chunky heaviness. Shamus and I think it's hilarious and have been using it also to describe what the plows leave at the end of our freshly hand shoveled drive, what the roof sheds in front of our freshly shoveled front door. I'm not much of a swearer unless having run more than 15 miles, but this is a fun one.
2. I had the most wonderful run last night. 4.5 miles with the dogs running in one set of tire tracks through about 3 inches of snow while it was dumping lightly and no wind. When the snow stopped, the moon was AWESOME last night and this morning!
3. After recently seeing a couple instances of this, having the dog(s) run beside or behind your car to "walk" them may just mean that in that instance you are lazy.

Mixed blessing...

Song of the day - The Band ~ Rag Mama Rag

So, one of Shamus' gifts for Christmas was a high tech thermometer and he's been so excited to know the temperature at any given moment of the day. Yesterday, when we woke up at 6:45 AM it was -21.8 degrees. So, good to know, but as we got ready to go classic skiing at 9:30 AM the temperature had risen to -18.6 degrees. The whole time skiing I was thinking about that -18.6 degrees instead of just telling myself that yes it was cold, but not actually knowing HOW cold...DANG! So, I'm trying not to "Rag Mama Rag" on the gift of technology...
