Global Warming....

...I'm really beginning to think that Polar Bears could survive in North Carolina! And, we might just need to train them and use them for transportation! This time of the year is rather depressing ~ the festive holiday decorations are all down {or need to be}, several aisles in the stores are still packed with holiday items, now marked 75 to 95% off. I try to avoid those aisles, as something always temps me ~ but not in a way that I "need" these things, I kinda feel sorry for the things that didn't sell. It's like the aisles of misfit toys. I want to bring them home and make them all feel wanted. It's as though if you listen close enough, you could hear a small sigh of relief when you carry them up to the cash register. Where do these things end up, anyway? We are taking down our tree today, but it has been a great tree and has served it's purpose well. I know it's happy :)
So much for "ringing out the old" ~ I thinking I'm ringing it in! One of my best friends from High School recently found me on facebook {that's her in the green top, sitting next to me ~ I always have my mouth wide open ~ I'm lucky nothing ever flew in there. I'm convinced I could catch a salmon like the grizzly bears ~ hee hee}. She and her husband have a second home in Asheville and she just so happened to be here! We met for the afternoon and just laughed and talked and talked until our cheeks hurt. We hadn't seen each other in over 3o years! It was wonderful! I'm looking forward to continuing our renewed friendship! And, the other person in the photo is my best friend, Debbie! We are still the best of friends ~ she and her Mom came up to visit Wayne and I just this past September. Life is Good!
Try to stay warm peeps! I think the *high* today will be 23! But before you know it, it will as "hot as blue blazes" [one of my Mom's famous statements]. Have a wonderful weekend!
