ON THE BACK BURNER

Dec.22

It is the first day of winter.It's hard to think winter when there is sand between your toes. We don't celebrate Christmas, but the outdoor lights and the greetings from people are nice reminders of the holiday. I feel like I am in a weather warp because the outside temperature is in the high 70's and getting warmer. The white outside my door is sand from the last trip to the beach and not snow. How can it really be winter. That must be for people who live in northern states.Wimps like me, get cold when the temperature goes below 72. I wear a hat and gloves when I walk Cricket. And if I am cold, then she must be also, so I put a sweater on her. She doesn't complain. I remember what winter is like and I don't like it. I remember shovels, snow blowers and salt for the stairs. I traded that in for sun block, sunglasses, and flip flops. It was a good trade.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
