temperature right now is 1*F......but that's the good news...because of the high pressure the storm that at this time is rolling thru the Mid-Atlantic States is passing below us....we will not feel any effects from it....
I'm sitting here tonight with "Gabriel Faure's Requiem" in the background, took one of my nocturnal walks to the local food market......just the usual stuff with one exception....the store had a 2oz. jar of caviar on special....if $64 a pound is marked down....not the point....anyone who reads this blog knows i have a very eclectic taste in food.........a quiet day........

i was just 4 when we moved out of Buffalo to a rural area about 20 miles from the city line....at the time we had a cocker spaniel.....which a few months later lost an argument with a dump truck...and a few weeks later i met "Big Skippy"....now you need to remember i wasn't 5 yet...and i remember that mixed breed as coming up to my shoulder,  we lived on 2.5 acre lot...with farm land behind....mom never worried where i was....because she knew the dog was always with me.....my mom claimed to be 5' tall.......[ the mad one shakes his head ] but she had a voice that carried...."Buddy dinner"...and if i was a ways off, i'd throw an arm over Big Skippy's neck, throw a leg over his back and he'd take me home....that crazy hound had two major faults
a] he never learned not to play with skunks..
b] if there was a female dog in heat within a couple of miles......
