You know, I never had that much of an issue with April in the past. It’s a good month. It has 30 days. You know, pretty average, as months go. But damned if this wasn’t the coldest, wettest, snowiest April I can remember. I’m all done with April. Hello May!
Hey, 117 pals, did you all have fun checking out the fog this morning? I had my Powershot in the car with me, and whipped it out in Bolton Flats. Any time I had to stop, I snapped a picture. I uploaded the five best ones to flickr (just use the link under this photo). I have to say, I would have been happy to just have one that I liked. To have five worthy of uploading…that was the prize for the day!
This makes up for yesterday. I got halfway to work before I realized that the dog was still in the car with me. Oh my God, when am I going to learn the benefits of owning a talking dog versus Mr. Silent?
Are you WATCHING THIS GAME!?!?!?
I like the sweater I’m wearing today, but it’s itchy. I don’t know why, I guess the material is made out of fiberglass or something. I remember going to The Aunt(r)’s house and she had this big chairs outdoors that would really make your legs itch, especially if you were a kid all sweaty from running around her back yard. Apparently the itchy was because they were fiberglass. I don’t blame her for having itchy garden furniture, but what the hell was the manufacturer thinking? Didn’t they test them wearing shorts? Was my health ever in danger? Can these chairs be stored in the attic to provide insulation? (Okay, I’m pretty sure she doesn’t have the chairs any more, but it paints a funny picture, doesn’t it?)
So this sweater is itchy but it was really cheap. I got it on the 70% off rack. But it wasn’t the “70% Off all Deadly/Itchy Sweaters” rack. At least not that I noticed.
Oh, wait, it is! Man oh man, my fellow Leominster to points-east commuters must have had fun with the 117 portion of the commute like I did. I am guessing that the entire town of Lancaster will be completely under water by tomorrow morning. I wish to God I’d had my camera…the new lake behind the big yellow Thayer Conservatory (or whatever it’s called now…I haven’t been there since my sister was about 11 years old) made my jaw drop.
The normal “avoid Bolton Flats” route was also closed due to flooding. That’s a bad sign. Looking at the alternate, alternate route, that one might be out by tomorrow. Goodbye Lancaster, it was nice knowing you.
