One Eleven Eleven (1/11/11)

Now this event won't happen again for another hundred years. Sandy though reminded me that come November we will have an eleven eleven eleven. Hummm I wonder if today would be a good day to go to the casinos over in Shreveport?  Our temperature last night got down to 17F. So cold the snow on the ground and particularly the roof tops is still hanging around .... and they said this winter won't be as bad as last year.

We both had cabin fever and wanted an outing. So we were up early and headed into Longview for Sandy's retail fix. While in Longview I picked up some more supplies for sealing our roof. My BIL James has a worker that will do this for a reasonable price. He his scheduled to do this  Friday and/or Saturday which has our temps in the mid to high 50's. The product information says you can apply as low as 40F. Will be so glad to see this project behind us. We are scheduled for more rain Saturday night and Sunday.

After Monday nights college BCS championship game between Oregon and Auburn there is no more college bowl games. What is a guy to do? I'm not a big basketball fan professional nor college. So I have to wait for NASCAR which starts up in February and the NFC playoffs before the big daddy of them all.... Super Bowl XLV. I fell the New England Patriots have the inside track to win it all.

We have some very lazy people in this world. I'm waiting in the car at the Walmart parking lot for Sandy to run in to pickup an item she forgot. I just observed a young woman whose car was parked right next door to a cart return leave her basket right in the middle of the empty parking space next to her car. Someone will have to get out of their car and move the basket before they can park. Can't you tell I'm bored and just can't come up with enough interesting stuff to write about.


Our high today managed to get to 28F eleven degrees higher than our low last night. There's that number eleven again. When we got back from town we had that dreadful blue boy chore (dump the black water). We had to pull the blue boy by hand across the snow to the sewer clean out drain. Man was it cold. What's that saying. . . .”You gotta do what you gotta to do.”

Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.

  1. Well, you can do a post in 10 months - 11/11/11. But I envy your not knowing what day it is. I'm looking forward to that state of mind.
