The weather here makes me happy

Recommended Posts

Just because. Two things about the weather make me happy: winter, which is not winter at all compared to the cold hell I come from, and days like today: 15 degrees, which by my non-scientific approach is the warmest 7:30 am we've had in months.

And the birds are chirping and playing tag in the almost ready to bloom new bugambilia blossoms. My door is open and I'm sitting at my desk drinking steaming hot coffee. L.G. for sure.

Funny. I was waking slowly this morning, listening to the birds singing and happy not to have a pile of heavy blankets on me. Thought about how I was leaving the bedroom window cracked open at night and that our two-month “winter” appeared over. I smiled as I thought how much I love living here. The climate suits me so well. Seems several of us woke up feeling spring today. Aren’t we lucky.

Yes, feeling springy! You point out another thing: two months of "winter" compared to approx 5 months "back 'ome". It's a very relaxing way to be.

I sleep alone and regardless of the weather, that makes me very happy.

Yes but look at what we are missing!

RIDEAU LAKES, Ontario (CBS Local) — A game of bingo at a nursing home turned ugly Tuesday when two elderly women got into a “physical altercation” over a seat, authorities in Canada said.

Police responded to the altercation at a long-term care facility in Rideau Lakes, Ontario, a Canadian community of lakes near the New York border.

Tempers had flared when the two women — aged 79 and 86 — wanted to sit in the same seat and neither would stand down. Other residents soon got involved, turning the situation into somewhat of a brawl, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported.

No one was seriously injured or charged, officials said.

“It was certainly a rare call for us,” said police spokeswoman Sandra Barr, who has not been able to clarify whether or not bingo was finally played.

Cabin fever. You can get a bit deranged in the middle of winter in much of Canada.

Grouchy old lady/man syndrome is universal. Sometimes their meds have side effects especially those that are serotonin receptor blockers. Some people are in a bad mood and sometimes can go into rage mode over seemingly litte things.

The 86 year old had been occupying that particular seat at bingo for a very long time. The 79 year old was the instigator and usurper. Young whippersnappers think they can just take whatever they want.

I know that, Alan. It was a joke about a stereotype.

Perhaps they don't want you back, or you would be there, wouldn't you?

Better check up on that, it is being over run by northern European and British tourists and expats and has gotten quite pricey.

OTOH you could let these guys raise a bunch of money for you and then disappear somewhere in Mexico!  :D

Too bad so many don't see how good we have it here:

1.  Fantastic climate if a bit chilly this year.  No polar vortexes.

2.  30 minutes to an airport with a huge selection of U.S., Canadian and Mexican destinations.  Day's drive to the U.S. border.

3.  Some of the best available health care in Mexico just down the road plus new facilities coming here.

4.  Household help still affordable and a win win for both employee and employer (if you doubt this check pay rates in most of Mexico and compare to here)

5.  Restaurants running out our ears mostly very affordable.  For a real shock go out to eat to comparable places NOB these days.

6.  Real estate prices still well below comparable resort locations around the world.

7.  Very good local dental services at a fraction of NOB prices.

8.  Very active local arts and entertainment scene for a small town.

9.  The Feria and the opportunity to rub elbows with wonderful Mexican artisans and fill your house with the best of it.

And a helluva lot cheaper than San Diego!  You can keep California craziness and traffic jams.  

A lot of things make me happy here.  See ya later, I'm headed to the pool. :)

It shows. We see you as a bright young teen with great potential as you mature. However, since you have made statements that indicate you are about 50, or more, we have adjusted our opinion to suspect that you are a middle-aged loner with the mind of a bright young teen, and wasted potential.

Oh jonny, no one really gives a rat's ### about you and I am sorry because I know you need the attention and affirmation but you are like one of those small annoying dogs that humps your leg, you know?

Why don’t the moderators add a separate section just for JIT and put all of his entries there.  He can probably have his own moderator also.  Anyone who wants to read his comments can go there but the rest of us don’t have to.
