Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my snow-frosted cupcakes!  How are you?  Wasn't that one hell of a 1 - 2 punch by the weather?  First balmy breezes, then a snowstorm.  Does anyone have any idea what is going on with the climate?  I think I got spoiled by a few days of sun and warmth, and now more seasonal weather has hit.  No matter how you cut it, though, this is going to go down as a warm winter.  Silly me, I know Mother Nature is insane and I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop.  Ms. OKIE mentioned that plants are budding out all over.  Now, let's hope a killing frost doesn't come around.  That's what happened here a few years ago.  It all but destroyed the apple crop.

By the way, for your information I am now a MadameZoltarist.  That will be my appellation in all political dealings.  I believe in me, no one else.  That way I can avoid being left or right.  I'm MZ.  I'm above petty political name-calling.  Hear me roar.

Junior was out all day yesterday shoveling sidewalks.  He said he "did alright," but didn't disclose the amount.  Hmm.  I'm gonna watch that boy for awhile and make sure everything is on the up and up with him.

Señor Zanza cleared our sidewalk and driveway.  Then he ate breakfast.  Like a horse.  Nothing like a little snow removal to stimulate a man's appetite.  I assume Junior was stuffing himself with candy bars all day. So much for the food pyramid.

Junior has also been lobbying us to get his drivers license and a car.  Yes to his drivers license, no to a car, for now.  I want to see proof of his ability to purchase and maintain an auto.  And pay insurance.  And pay for repairs.  And pay for gas.  Regularly, each month.  I don't think we're quite to that stage yet.  A car would be a great distraction to Junior anyway.  I'd like to see his grades a little higher before we discuss owning vehicles.

Do you think this is true?

I wouldn't be the least surprised if it's true.  Anything is better than Christmas music.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read my blog today.  God bless you.  I love more and more readers.

Would you throw the beer bottle at the bartender?  Ask

It looks like a very slow warm up into next week.  Be careful!  It's winter in Wisconsin, not summer in South Dakota.  Be wary of slippery spots when walking and driving. Slow down.  Nothing is worth an accident.  I love you, Irregulars!

It has been a very weird winter. Besides for the two ice storms, it's been quite mild and warm. Sadly, I'very already seen flies this year which is crazy early. The bugs are going to be awful.

As always, thank you for your post Madame.

I would've thrown a bar stool at the bartender.

Thank you, Mme. Z., for another great blog.
