Warmer ~ Tree Stump Artist ~ James Duran ~ Thanksgiving Photos 2 ~ Sunday & Monday Football ~ Mousse


Good warmer 28º morning.  10º really doesn't make that much difference. It's still colder than a well digger's shovel!!
 
 
This 2 minute video was shared by Deewayne Honnee Preimsburger.... what an artist! Turns a tree stump into a beautiful piece of art! Thanks for sharing DP!

 
Yesterday stayed cold .... started out at 17º but did warm to 25º by 9am. Then by 10am it warmed to freezing!
 

Jim and Olga Duran's son James is celebrating his birthday today.. OMG, he's 25! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMES!

Yesterday's football:



                                                                                                     

And tonight's game:


 
Yesterday was exciting. Laundry. I worked on some Christmas stuff. Loaded photos into my computer and tried to stay warm. Had a roaring fire in the wood stove and enjoyed a couple episodes of Blue Bloods and a Hallmark movie.
 
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.
