    KENTUCKY WEATHER.Let it snow, but please leave the ice out of it. Our little snow fall was pretty and nice.

    CHRISTMAS LIGHTS.We got our Christmas tree up. I let Chloe touch it and she just smiled. She likes the tinsel.Maybe it’s the weather, I don’t know, but it seems people are not decorating outside of their homes as usual.

    Ok, I am officially tired of winter. Oh, wait, winter is not even here yet. The cold is one thing, but the ice and snow is something else altogether. I did not leave my house from Thursday night until Monday afternoon. Kenny went out a few times, but even church was cancelled, so I just stayed home in my nice warm house. I can’t believe that it is only December. After Christmas, can we just skip right to May?

    Winter seemed to come in with a fury this past weekend, keeping us “old folks” inside. We felt the last thing we needed to do was to take a chance of falling and breaking bones, neither of us has had to deal with a broken bone during our lifetime, and certainly hope to keep it that way.

    Hello friends, I hope you all are well and surviving this weather. One day fog,then rain and then old man snow. I am sorry I didn’t have a column for you all last week but it was just one of those weeks when it was just hard to write and a sad time.
