Lesson 704 – Quotable Chicks

By Wendythomas @wendyenthomas

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks

May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night and a smooth road all the way to your door.”

Irish Blessing

We’ve had freezing, blizzard condition weather followed by warmer spring-like temps which are now melting snows piled up, it seems, just yesterday.

The problem with widely swinging temperatures is that moisture is released and when cooled down again the result is cold combined with damp – a horrible combination under the best of circumstances.

For those of use with aches (I’d like to say that it’s an old football injury but in reality, it’s an old biking injury) this type of weather hits us right in the joints.  We shuffle for a bit after rising from a chair until our legs get the kinks worked out. We reflexively put our hands on our lower backs after we’ve stood for too long.  We dream of dry heat and summer beaches.

But as we all know, the only way to get through is to get through.

And that means moving our bodies and taking walks in the slush piled up on the sides of the street.

But then there are those of us who prefer an easier path.


Not only is that my reading chair but it’s also my electric blanket.

Ah, the life of a dog.


By the way, at the West Point meet, Trevor received 2 medals the first day and qualified for the Pommel Horse finals the following day where he placed 7th overall.


See you next week.


As always, happy weekend everyone, health and happiness (and safety) to your flock.
