AOL says the temperature is 42 degrees.  It's been drizzling for the past 24 hours.  Now if it were 42 and sunny, I could have ridden my horse.  But as it is, I just get grumpier and grumpier.  The forecast sounds like I may get a ride in tomorrow, then we're back to the rain on Friday.

Cliff was going to go see my cousin's husband this morning.  I figured my cousin, Betty, would be working; and I would have stayed home except for the fact that Cliff lured me away by promising to split a steak dinner with me.  As luck would have it, we found a place that didn't look too terrible in the eyes of the health department... Smokehouse Barbecue. 

Anyhow, back to Betty's place:  Cliff found Russ in the shed, and I told him I'd stay in the car and read.  My friend Jen sent me her son's new book (Click on the link and scroll down on that page to the book, "Failure, and How I Achieved it"), and also her daughter's latest.  I'm 2/3 of the way through her son's book now, and I just got it yesterday. 

I happened to look up from my book and see Betty approaching the car.  She has a lot of "sick days" to use up before she retires, so she was home after all.  She and I went inside and had a really nice visit.  I'm glad I went.

As we were leaving, I snapped that picture so I could post it here for Betty's sister, Carolyn, to see.  Hi Carolyn!

There is nothing like a good book or a pleasant visit with some one on a dreary day.  It's about the same weatherwise here.  I really need some sunshine and warmth.  My whole body is craving it.  Hopefully we'll get some soon.  'On Ya' - ma

Fun, fun, fun.  I hope the cold gets going and it gets warm around here and at your place.  Glad you had a nice visit.
