Weekly Wrap Up (Feb. 25 - Mar. 2)



So what is that saying? February Showers brings March dumps of snow? :unsure: 

After a tropical February around here, it stated snowing on Thursday night, and it snowed, and snowed and it snowed :( I'm sure we are over a foot but you know what, a foot here is multiple feet in the mountains to the West. Without this bump up in the low snowfall in the Rockies, we would and may still be in a drought for the summer. So if any of you are going to tell me about your bulbs starting to shoot up, maybe planning the garden, your perennials are coming up, I HATE YOU :PWell, hate is a strong word, maybe detest? Despise? :gikkle: 

Now onto another pressing issue. It is years like this that it isn't good to be on a salary. If you can get one :o. I mean, employers get an extra day of work out of you on Feb 29th without paying their employees for the extra day of work! If you are paid hourly, you should be paid for the extra day. I think next leap year we should rise up and point out this injustice!!! Yet I have a feeling in 4 years I won't remember what I did the year before, let alone 4 years before ;).

Before we get going this week, I want to tip my hat to the big guy, @Myr, and our new programmer who have worked their a$$es off to get this Server and Stories Archive Update done. I'll be honest, if you could see all the bugs that Myr worked with our programmer to get fixed, and some of those bugs were identified by you all, you would be gob smacked (or is it gobsmacked) at how much went into this. So sincerely, thanks Myr :worship: Here is the announcement:

Now let's jump into our regular programming week, brought to you by Lucki Charms 🍀( trademarks ;) ).

Monday, Cia got to present a really interesting interview with our CSR Author and Story of the month for February:

Tuesday, although he was busy as beaver, Myr still did a deep dive:

We took hump day off this past week. I won't ask you what you did on your hump day as this is a family blog :gikkle: One author I know has a fixation with the UPS driver in his shorts on Wednesdays :o

Thursday, Valkyrie showed her true colours, which is green btw. She revealed that the single most important day in the year for her is getting drunk on green beer, eating cabbage and corned beef. She also gave us two prompts to recognize the upcoming St Paddy's day:

The snow was flying flat across my bumper after dinner! It was reasonable when we went in, but jeez.

As always nice to look back and make sure we all did not miss anything important with our busy lives; or fighting off hordes of killer snow men.  LOL.
