seems like it will never end! Spring can't come any sooner!
Yeah, I know but, it's easier to sleep later through the darkness. I'm just going to enjoy that sunset is getting later and later from here on.Technically true, but it's rising later than its setting later. Days are still getting shorter for another week or so. I know, I'm just a downer.
I consider any temperature lower than my age the dead of winter. I'm sitting here in my office, dong some paperwork, and the space heater is running full blast. The temperature in the office was 63 before I turned on the heater, and damned that's cold when you're 74 years old. To combat the horrors of winter, the dreaded "S" word, I intend to drive south till my age and the temperature are equal. Marathon Key's Key Colony Beach seems just about right. I'll take a small suitcase of clothes, all my music gear, my wife and a bicycle, play lots of music, enjoy those beautiful, tropical sunsets, drink too many Margarettas, and ride the bike to the liquor store and grocery store. I'll probably stay down there till mid March, then slowly make my way north as spring approaches. The boat is sitting on the hard, covered and winterized, so there's no need for me to be here, suffering through The People's Republic of Maryland's wet, cold winter.Technically, winter hasn't even started yet....
