Moonrise ~ UPS Delivery ~ Saturday Football ~ Grandparents Expecting ~ Deer ~ Barney ~ Jalapeño Hot Dogs!

Good 26º frozen morning. Figures it's all cloudy and foggy so won't be able to see the moon! Dang. The moon will rise here at 4:05pm today and will be "full" and up tomorrow night at 8:54pm.
Here is a website where you can put in your city or country and find out the moonrise times in your area....
This video is wonderful. Posted on my friend Karen Baertschiger's FB page... YEAH UPS!!!!

NFL Football today:
                                        Go Cardinals! Go Steelers!

Today would have been the birthday of my former Temple City neighbor, Jack Dixon. He was a super super guy. He was born in 1909 and passed away in 2005. You are missed Jack!
Received this photo in an email from high school pal, Greg Lundell and his Becky... they are apparently going to be grandparents again. Is this cute or what!!!! This is their 2 year old granddaughter Mary Kathryn:

Yesterday I worked on paying bills and balancing my check book. YUCK!!!! I also did three loads of laundry. Whoop. In my pasture were 6 bucks and 3 does... All White Tailed deer... The biggest buck left the pasture via a gate I leave open.. two of the young bucks were testing their "antler-cuffs" (you know, like fisticuffs) for their "dominance competition"!

Festival of Sleep Day

LOVE this one:

No, you are not dreaming. But, perhaps you should be. Festival of Sleep Day is today. It is an opportunity to sleep in, snooze, doze, nap, and catch 40 winks.
This is the perfect date for Festival of Sleep Day. The holidays are over...Wow, weren't they exhausting! It's cold and snowy.... time to hibernate. And, why not re-charge the batteries as a new year of school and work begins?
Festival of Sleep Day is a favorite holiday to catch up on a little sleep. Whether its all day, a full 8 hours, or just a power nap, enjoy the day sleeping. Cozy up in bed on the couch, or any other comfortable place. It's okay to sleep alone, sleep alone or with someone else.
Caution: Sleeping at work is not recommended, today, or any day. The only exception is for mattress testers.
Warning #2: The Surgeon General has determined that sleeping is good for your health.
