Illusive itch

I get all snuggled in bed. Find the right spot after much tossing and turning. Fix the blankets and sheets just right and the pillow fluffed perfectly. Just on the verge of my sleepily land dreams it happens. I get an itch. On my foot. It had to pick the farthest part of me. I have to disturb everything that is making me comfortable. Which I do. Take care of the itch and try to get comfortable again. But nooooo. Now the itch begins to travel. It goes to the back of my leg, to my back,to my left arm then my right. It drives me to a wide awake state then stops. That is until I get comfortable again. Do you sometimes get an evil itch during the night?

We have had some very windy days in Pennsylvania, where I live. It was very windy the other night and my metal trash can was blown away by the wind. I looked all over for it but it was gone. The good thing was it was empty so no garbage got blown around. The next night it was very windy again. Low and behold the next morning I woke up and the wind blew back my missing garbage can. It was standing upright on my landing and neatly full of garbage. Do you have winds that can do this?

Valentines Day

I don't usually get excited about valentines day being single and enjoying it. I was faced with some lovely ladies that lost their husbands this year. It is sad when people are married for a long time and then are all of a sudden alone again. I think it is more difficult being alone for a woman more than a man. Don't get me wrong men get lonely too but for some reason women seem to have it tougher. So... they invited me to dinner to keep them company for that now dreaded day just so they will have some company. They are good friends and I was friends with their husbands so we both miss them. Yes they have families but it is not the same as they would tell you. So I learned that Valentines day is more than a day for lovers. It is a good day to be a friend and share some times with them too. What do you do on Valentines day? I bet you can think of someone that may need a friend.

I volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House and I am hooked on the Burger King new Jalapino sandwich and iced coffee. I have a Ronald McDonald cup so the ice coffee is easy to hide but I have to eat the sandwich real fast. I kind of feel like a traitor but those sandwiches are really good. I like my job at Ronald McDonald's because I get to give away stuffed teddy bears to the little children and their smiles are priceless. Do you do things in work like this too?

Icy stuff

I have a small yellow 2000 VW Beetle. I really like it but it is real low to the ground and a few inches of snow makes for a little tricky driving. Do not get me wrong it does drive pretty well in the snow. Unfortunately we had an ice storm and I got iced in. It took me a few days to find a man with a plow to dig me out. I tried to find a woman with a plow first to be fair but I could not find her. Anyway he did a good job and I am back driving around. Do you know any women that owns a snow plow?
