Puff, we haven't had much snow this year, which is OK by me. The Tshirt is deceptive, it was +7*. Note my breath.

Sure some was wondering when the seasoned citizen center gonna come collect the guest running around in a tee shirt while huffing frost at forty below. Now the Turkey looks like the Norman Rockwell print on the same topic.

It was exactly one year ago yesterday that I had heart bypass surgery. That is a major attention getter. So I have altered my lifestyle some. It is mostly more exercise and portion control. Thanks for noticing. My doc is still on my case about ethanol consumption, but a guys gotta draw the line somewhere.

I don't recall any post from 2011 about any bypass surgery Griff. Did you forget to inform your virtual friends about that minor detail ?

Or did I overlook that thread ?

Turkey looks great .

bw, no Vet or cute meth girls for me. My one, and only true love are having our 44th anniversary in April. And I already got a cool car my dad restored and gave me before he passed -- a 29 Model A Ford coupe with a rumble seat.

Cliff, I didn't post much for a month or so while I was recovering. You didn't miss much.
