Single Status Update
Okay, I won't tell you that the site with the black lettered holidays, events, births and deaths was off line until 0:30 AM or that I zigged when I should of zagged and I lost all the illusions. So with the one off line site and the redoing of the illusions, here we are at 1:39 AM.
(on a happier note, the house is back to normal temperature)
Q. Why were the teacher's eyes crossed?
A. She couldn't control her pupils!
An elderly pastor was searching his closet for his
collar before church one Sunday morning. In the back
of the closet, he found a small box containing
three eggs and 100 $1 bills.
He called his wife into the closet to ask her about the
box and its contents. Embarrassed, she admitted
having hidden the box there for their entire 30 years
of marriage. Disappointed and hurt, the pastor asked
her, "Why?" The wife replied that she hadn't wanted
to hurt his feelings. He asked her how the box could
have hurt his feelings. She said that every time
during their marriage that he had delivered a poor
sermon, she had placed an egg in the box.
The pastor felt that three poor sermons in 30 years
was certainly nothing to feel bad about, so he asked
her what the $100 was for.
She replied, "Each time I got a dozen eggs, I sold
them to the neighbors for $1."
There once was a man who was so proud of the fact
that he had six kids that he insisted on calling his wife
"mother of six."
His wife hated this name and asked him repeatedly
not to call her that, but he was a stubborn man and
was very proud that he had six kids.
One evening they were at a dinner party for his
company and it was getting close to the time that
they should be leaving. The husband yelled from
across the room over to his wife, "mother of six, are
you ready to go?"
Annoyed with his question, she responded, "In a
minute, Father of four."
There was a perfect man and a perfect woman.
They met each other at a perfect party. They dated for two
perfect years. They had the perfect wedding and the
perfect honeymoon. They had two perfect children.
One day the perfect man and the perfect woman
were driving in their perfect car, they saw an elf by
the side of the road, being the perfect people they
were they picked him up.
Well as the perfect man and the perfect woman were
driving with the elf, somehow they got into
an accident. Two people died and one lived.
Who died and who lived?
The perfect woman, because the perfect man and
elves aren't real.

I forgot to mention that I’m glad you got your power back! Unlike my own situation, your loss of power was potentially life threatening for you and your tenant! We’re anticipating a drop in temperature to a low of 39°F (4°C) on Friday. ;-)
Thank you very much. This winter so far has had the greatest temperature variations that I have ever experienced.
When I was in the Sinai desert (Egypt) in 75/6, in the summer the average daytime temp was 100 F and a couple times up to 110 F. At night it would drop to the low 70s F and we would have to put on sweaters and coats to keep warm. Until last week that was wildest that I ever experienced.
Last week will I think remain the record for me for the rest of my life. Within a 36 hr period It went from a high of 12 C / 53 F to a bone chilling -45 C / -49 F (with the wind chill). An over 100 F degree difference, now that is mind blowing. I'd take that desert furnace over this ice cube maker in a New York minute!!! Even with the scorpions / vipers and malaria carrying mosquitoes, stand in my way at your own peril.
