Cold Morning Here In Cottage Country On Leap Year Feb. 29/2024

Good Morning! It’s another day here in the North, where the cold’s just a reminder that we’re alive and kicking, and … it is cold out there this morning!

I actually had to put my coat on this morning walking to the shop to feed my stove. It’s nice in there, though, which sure makes it nice for working, or … playing around. Which I enjoy doing occasionally. So … today is Feb. 29 which is what they call Leap Year. Years ago, my old Dad used to say that … Leap Year is a day for taking risks. Which he did one time, buying up some land in Sarasota, Florida. Ended up being one of the best moves he ever made, as for years after that, come the first of November, he’d pack his bags and head down south, leaving behind the chill of the northern winters. I sure do miss the old feller, and the wisdom he shared.

You know, life’s full of chances, and sometimes, taking a leap is just what is needed to find your slice of sunshine. I hope you all make today into something special, too.

On another note, yesterday I worked the day away here at my desk doing up a story for my newspaper columns, and along with that finished up another YouTube Video of how I went about building and installing some much-needed shelves in my woodworking shop. They turned out pretty good, and I made the video public this morning on my YouTube Channel. Take a look when you have a few minutes sometime, and if you like my videos consider subscribing as it helps a lot. There are around 33 videos on there now and more in the works.

Today I will head on out to my shop as I have a few other things on the go, which will get this old body of mine moving a bit, which … is what is needed to keep it strong.

Politicians: I asked a politician one time why he never keeps his promises. He said, George, I ain’t in the promise-keeping business, I’m in the promise-making business. First words that a politician ever said to me that were right on the money.

With that I am off for a bowl of porridge and a Florida Grapefruit that my lovely wife is preparing for me and will then see what the day is made up of.

You all have a great day and remember: “A day without laughter is like a barn without hay … it just ain’t right!” GW
