First Real Day of Winter

At 8:00 this morning it was about 6 degrees and pouring rain.  As I write, it is just after eight at night, minus 6 degrees, and it is snowing quite a lot outside.  The day sure has changed.

A bit of this and that so far for 2016; a back to school in the house, a birthday, some movies, swimming and skating at the YMCA, and lots of running.  (Although I did excuse myself in the rain this morning and I know Beaser was quite upset at me for doing so....)

Shelly returned to work on Friday the 8th.  I don't think it was much of a problem for her.  Apparently, however, her co-workers ditched her and left her hanging at the pub after work to drink alone.  Never to be alone, Shelly met up with some other friends by happenstance and had a welcome back to work drink with them.

On Saturday it was Wally's first birthday.  I remember Molly didn't have much of a first birthday as I was at a buddy's wedding, and Shelly was at an art show, so in similar fashion there wasn't much planned for the second born.  Molly and Shelly made a cake, I bought some hot dogs and chips, and that was going to be it.  I also called my dad to pop over, which he did.  Well it wasn't long before my buddy Drew stopped in with his kids with a bad of clothes for Molly, and Steve and Hellen were also in the neighbourhood.  Seeing all the cars, they stopped too.  Before we knew it there was a full fledged impromptu party going on. 

After that party was cleaned up and people had left, the door ringer is going off and wouldn't you know it, Shelly's folks came in to say hello. 

I went to London this week with my buddy Scott.  I had lots of questions to ask about his 40 day Africa and Asia trip, plus there was some consuming to do, dinner to eat, and a movie to watch.  We had a great day.
