Just a few things

d 014

Today is Friday the 13th and a full moon. This is a year
where we will see two Friday the 13ths, the next one will be
in October. Don’t know if that one will be accompanied by a
full moon or not.

People have been asking me why I haven’t mentioned the fact
that former Alderman Bill Edmond died Tuesday, as he commented
on this blog from time to time and was a friend. Truth of the
matter is I’m having a hard time translating my thoughts to
the keyboard. Our condolences to his family.

He was a Vietnam veteran and will be buried with full military
honors, was one of the most honest men I’ve ever met, and we
talked when we saw each other. There will be a post before his
burial on Tuesday.

Finally, we are preparing for a possible storm with freezing
rain, sleet, and all the fun stuff we associate with that. We
have coffee, bread, and enough pizza to feed a family for a
couple weeks. We’re good if it hits us, good if it don’t.

Yet with the record our local forecasters have we are not
holding our breath. We’ve had these storms predicted before
and we sometimes just got a little wind and other times got 5
times as much fluffy love from above as forecasted. I have the
gear to get out in the worst of it and the equipment to
remove whatever comes.

Enjoy our Friday the 13th, we see another until October.
Comments are always welcome.

    FYI the next Friday the 13th will not have a full moon~it’ll be in the last quarter.

    Hope the ice either misses you or never happens. Have a great weekend everyone!

    Mamabear,
    thanks on the information of our next Friday the 13th. I have a gut feeling that the storm isn’t going to be as bad as predicted, but that and a couple bucks will get you a cup of coffee.
