One Advantage of Being Retired



I’m not going outside. For the next two days. Not stepping out the front door, you can’t make me.

Not because I’m a slacker. Somebody has to keep the American economy from falling off the tracks, but it’s not me; I’m retired.

Over the next 48 hours (Tuesday/Wednesday), the projected high is only 5°F (-15°C) with a low of -8°F (-22°C) and windchills of -20°F (-29°C).

Yesterday I got ready for it. Cleared the driveway and walk of snow that fell Sunday night into Monday. No more white stuff in the forecast until Thursday. Went shopping and got fresh produce for a few days (plenty of staples in my deep pantry, where do you think the prepared in my user name comes from?). Stocked up on beer just in case.

We have plenty of coffee. I’m gonna need it. Books to read, Netflix to watch, househusband chores, a 95-pound puppy that loves attention.

And absolutely no desire to experience the joys of frostbite.

Summer here. Just gearing up for a BBQ in the park on Saturday, with the Adelaide Steem community. Might even go for a swim :)

A 95 pound puppy... Clydesdale?


A puppy in spirit. She’s 11 years old and, as of a few minutes ago, resting on her laurels:

You're a smart man! I walked Amstel this morning and had to warm his paws three times in the course of a ten minute walk. It's not fit for man nor beast out there today. I always ask myself why I live here this time of the year. Enjoy your hibernation!

Cute dog!

I had one of those days today - just raining and cold. Although I did take a 10 minute stroll to the local sauna, it was worth the effort!

I think it's worth getting out for 20 mins a day, just to get yer vitamin D!
