Hello, my spirits and sprites! How are you? The weather has turned a little colder, but for the middle of January, I’d say that we’re not doing too bad. Like last winter, there’s been little snow. I hate saying this, but, for our own sake, we need more snow. The drought has screwed up everything, resulting in higher prices for everything. It seems like you can’t win. Oh my.
Speaking of not winning, our illustrious and heroic Green Bay Packers fell to the San Francisco 49ers last Saturday, thus ending their postseason play. It’s tragic. Next season I’m going to get “more involved,” no matter what my ethics say. I placed third in the Irregular Football League. Perhaps I should hire out to the Packers as a consultant? I can give players readings while teaching them new plays. Hmm, I have to think about this...
Junior was so upset by the Packers’ loss that he threw his football at the TV in his bedroom. Now he’s upset that he has to pay for a new TV. That’s too bad, but my child is going to learn to take responsibility for what he does. There is always the TV in the living room for him to watch, as long as others agree on the show.
I was going to comment on some of the goings-on at Racine’s City Hall, but that gets distasteful quickly. Odious is the word that comes to mind. I refuse to feel sorry for myself, but I do feel bad for my fellow taxpayers. Many hardworking people have watched the value of their homes plummet while the city assessment goes up and up. Ptooie!
Locally, Alderman Keith Fair was named “Man of the Year” for 2012 by the Insider News: http://issuu.com/1661insider/docs/website_version Huzzah, huzzah! Let there be rejoicing throughout the First District.
There is the New Car Show at Festival Hall this weekend. (Who can afford a new car?) There is also the Big Chill Winter Snow Sculpting Competition on Monument Square: http://www.journaltimes.com/calendar/the-big-chill-winter-snow-sculpting-competition/event_6d58c9e4-5368-11e2-8f5d-0019bb2963f4.html I’ve seen a couple of those before. The sculptures were wonderful. It’s free and it’s fun.
Thank you, my dears, for reading my blog today. I’m grateful that you stop by. I look forward to your visits each and every week.

Watch out for the patches of ice on the sidewalks and the streets. I find myself doing the little mince-walk across ice in an effort to avoid falling on my butt. Thank goodness that I eat so much chocolate. Lalochezia!
