Your last sentance is the key, "no we dont" is the answer.

Travis threw everything off, and did what nature gave us--the right thing.

Ax: Glad to hear you had a white Christmas in Bama. Pretty much unheard of. Funny thing is you got about the same amount of snowfall as I did and most of mine is melting today.

With what Chick got to my south and Ski to my north you would think I would have gotten walloped too. Instead it went right around.


Boys are getting a bit of cabin fever they haven't been out in a few days as it has been pretty bitter with the cold and high winds. Need to get them outside a bit today.

Hope the yule log was warm and fragrant. My woodstove is getting a lot of use.

Been a good one here in Dixie, snow melted yesterday, roads all clear--didn't even get frozen over.

The Yule Log what a treat--G'son -2yrs old helped load it in--was about 6ft long and 12 inches in diameter--course had to cut it into servicicable pieces.

Get outside and make friends with Mother Nature, makes one alive---;):)

Glad you didn't get dumped on-:)

Buddy, Hope you dig out of that Iceblock there,--it's only 50F here, --

Russian Tea:--"half a gallon of Black Tea, oranges, cloves, lemon and sugar"--

Serve hot---and a Shot of "Very Good Vodka" , on the side--keeps the sinuses going---;):)

Ax, i have a friend in west virginia that makes a little of his own moonshine every year. this past year he sent me another qt. mason jar full of some of the most powerful white lighting you can imagine. I could send you a couple of shots of it to try if you wanted it. talk about clearing out the sinues! it is pure and dynamite.

Nice.
Speaking of old motorcycles, reminds me of a bluegrass song by Del McCoury about and old motorcycle:
'52 Vincent Black Lightning

Said Red Molly To James
That's a fine motor bike
A girl could feel special
On any such alike
Said James to Red Molly
My hats off to you
It's a Vincent Black Lightning
1952
And I've seen you on corners
And cafes it seems
Red hair and black leather
My favorite color scheme
And he pulled her on behind
And down to Knoxville
They did ride

Reminds of a sad family story also, Ax, although before my time and an incredible followup as well, if you have time to read.
In August of 1951, my Uncle Obery, 21, bought a 1947 Harley Knucklehead. Grandpa, who was rather blunt, told Obery that he gave him 3 months to be dead on that motorcycle.
Dad, who was 10 at that time, said that Obery could bring that thing down the dirt road in front of their house, lock it down and make it turn on the front wheel.
In late October, Obery had been "Handing" tobacco for Chapel Tweed, who also happens to be my wifes grandfather.
He and Charlie Cook took off on that Harley, heading for a Halloween Carnival in nearby Hot Springs.
They were headed up the Hot Springs Mountain and in the middle of a left hand turn the bike went into a skid. Obery, who was not wearing a helmet, died of massive head wounds. Charlie survived.

Fast Forward 57 years, 2008:

At the Tweed family reunion in 2008, a gentleman of Tweed descent from Greeneville, TN, showed up.
His name was Frank Fillers and he was almost 80 years old.
We got to talking and somehow (devine intervention/fate/irony?) he got to talking about buying a motorcycle when he was a young man.
Mr. Fillers said "I came up into North Carolina that winter to see my garndparents. I had went down to Talmadges store and your Grandpa Ted was there. Ted said that he was getting tired of seeing his wife Lula (My Grandma) look out the window, staring at that motorcycle and crying. So, I asked Ted what he wanted for it. I gave him either $150 or $200 for it. I took that motorcycle to Tennessee and traded it for a bunch of farm equipment and that is how I made my living..........from that motorcycle. Over the years, I tried to find it to buy it back, but never could."
That's the short version.
Cool and ironic, huh?

Simple pleasures or Gems----I'd Say both --something that todays ?Logic?, doesn't seem to fathom.

There are new homes being built in my neighborhood. Inexpensive and quick occupancy. Heating bill could be a bear, tho!

The kids "next door" did that. Then they built 2 more open ones with just 3 walls and a peep hole in the center wall - facing each other (the angles on the walls are more open than 90 degrees - they are flared). They use flexible snow shovels and catapult snow balls at each other!
