Friday Four...

1. I had to take my car in for a recall issue this morning, and I ran into an old friend (he was more of my brother's friend, but we were 'friendly'). I hadn't heard anything about him for probably 20 years now, so it was fun to see him again (although, I didn't recognize him at first). Here's a pic (it's a digital pic of a not-so-great pic) of him and our other friend Shelly (I've reconnected with her through FB -- she is the funniest person I've ever known and is capable of making me laugh so hard I cry) -- and yes, that's Jesse Jackson (we all got to hear him speak during a visit to Chicago the summer after I graduated from high school).


2. The kiddos have no school today or Monday, so we're in the midst of a 4-day weekend. That's fine for D, but E...*sigh* She has a much harder time keeping herself occupied, which has never been my problem (even at her age).

3. I can't believe we're already 2/3 the way through February...but I bet the last 1/3 seems longer than the rest ;)

4. Despite the snow from last weekend (which included a snow day -- and looked like the pic below), we've now had many days in a row of sunshine. This morning, while the car was being fixed, I went for a walk in a nearby park and enjoyed the sun and chirping birds (who certainly sound convinced that spring is almost here).


Enjoy your President's Day weekend!

LOL -- my big hair was early '90s. I got a perm, and because I have a TON of hair, it was definitely big (ridiculously so). :)

If you have enough snow left, perhaps E might have a fun making a snowman or even a whole snow family :)

Sadly, she seems to be 'over' the snow ;) However, I might try to talk her into it tomorrow!

I think the only people who truly look forward to snow are kids (who are too young to have to shovel it or drive in it) and snow removal companies. ;-)

When you're a kid it's a seasonally available toy and and excuse to miss school although I don't remember having snow days when I was a kid or teen. We're Canadian. We're supposed to be tough. Ha!

Interestingly, we rarely got snow days here in CO when I was a kid, either -- I remember one (and it was right before Thanksgiving, so we might have gotten it off simply because of the timing). We had two when I was in college -- but they had no choice (there were cars stranded on the highways for two full days, and no one could get through).
