High winds here in SW PA. There was a big thump last night, a quick look at the windows etc. revealed no damage so back to sleep.
This morning in the daylight saw one of my 40' or so maple trees with its roots showing sideways.
Mercifully it missed the neighbor's shed by about 6". So instead of going to the Y, I spent 4 hrs cutting and hauling wood out of the neighbor's yard into mine.

A great all around workout in the fresh air, high winds and blowing sleet. Fine reminder why I like to be in good shape. Definitely clears the sinuses. Although not as exhilarating as jumping out of a perfectly good airplane and getting paid for it.

Enough firewood for next winter, and did not have to pay lumberjack for the job. So an all around good thing.

Rest of the day is siesta.

Ouch, I'm a woodworker with a sawmill so hate to hear about a maple in the firewood pile- would have gladly traded you some oak! I keep my neighbors supplied with firewood with the slabs left over from my cutting- mostly oak but a bit of cherry and hickory thrown in for smell. Winds are very high here in northern VA and had one of our dogs up most of the night from the howl of the winds- could mean some work for me in the next few days once I scout the neighborhood to see what came down.

We got attacked by some serious snowflakes earlier today. Never saw them that big!
Surfing a little, listening to classic rock tunes.
Nice relaxing day...not a darn thing accomplished except meatballs and spaghetti sauce cooking all day in crockpot.

Ha said he was going to his usual tango lessons, but the word on the street is that he has a new
instructor he's not telling us about.

Wish I could bottle the weather we had today. Sunny and 72 degrees. Played golf and wore plenty of sunscreen. Sipping on a cold one at this moment. Suppose to rain tomorrow.

Came in 3rd place in a Texas Hold Em Tournament entered by 121 people, buy in was $100.

I had pocket 8s the guy I went all in had pocket 5s and he caught a 5 on the river.

First Prize was $5500, Second was $2800 and 3rd (me) goose egg.

Not to bad since the last time I played Texas Hold Em was August 2006. I'm a Stud guy.

Hey, here is what I did today, honest first peoples. Did some trading and listened to a couple of webcasts this morning. Then I ordered some Valentine's flowers from my totally cute flower seller, wrote and mailed some condolences, returned JM Keynes General Theory to the lib, walked downtown and sat in Pacific Place Galleria and talked to my sis on the phone while ogling some fine ladies, did a little window shopping at Tiffany and Cartier, walked down to the Public Market and ate some oysters on the shell, walked back up the hill to Trader Joe and got a refund on some rotten eggplant from a few days ago and bought some groceries. Then walked home and now I am eating salsa and chips and getting set to bake some chicken for dinner. I wear a pedometer and I went about 6 1/2 miles all told.

It was a beautiful day.

By the way Freebird, I wish I could do that B-boy dancing but I am afraid I am "too mature".

Ha
