Good morning from the "Land of 10,000 Icicles". It is a beautiful -26 outside. Kramer (the dog) did his business in record time this morning. I thought about what a bummer it would be if someone made me go outside in -26F to squat and do my business. Dogs don't always have it easy.
Irish: When I lived in Birmingham I found the same thing you have. If you are from the north you will always be a Yankee. Actually there were two classifications; Yankee is someone who comes and visits and a Damn Yankee is someone who stays.
I do have to say that once you were accepted people were some of the friendliest I've found.
I hope everyone has a great Thursday and stay warm.
