HA You don't know what cold is my friend; so, stop your whining already. lol Just kidding you Karla. But really, up here in New Hampshire, I go out on my deck and listen to the sap and water in the trees snapping from the cold. Hey, and last night was a warm one too. Never went below 7 degrees so we had a cookout. The Angus burgers were great too. ;-) Good write my friend. God bless.
