Cold weather, bad economic news, more massive job loss, oy. Makes me want to hole up somewhere and come out when it's over. Wouldn't it be nice if that were possible. Clearly I'm not feeling my bright, sunshiney self because I normally don't want to crawl into a box and hide, but everyday it gets worse and it doesn't look as if there is an end to the slide into the chasm. We are helpless to do anything other than put one foot in front of another and carry on as best we can.
This didn't start out as a economic topic, but I have the TV on and I'm hearing in the background talk of the latest job loss numbers and it just crept into my fingers as I typed.
My original point, winter was slow coming but it has arrived with some punch. We are supposed to have snow tonight and into tomorrow. That would be nice, the cold, frozen tundra look is depressing and some snow would be a nice change.
We are missing Bill, which is normal and right. Such a large personality will leave a hole and we have to spend some time missing him. Howard looks for him at dinner time because he always tried to steal his food. Howard is slightly confused when there isn't anything to steal and he scurries around looking for Bill.
