Forecast Tomorrow: Freeze, Fog, and Flu

Oh Joy...Here We Go!

All The Wet Cold...With out the Snow!

Do you feel good when the Cold Air Hits You In the Face?

Wait Till You Get The Dang Flu...And Are Home Sick For Days.

Does this Sound Like A Rant On The Cold?

Your Damn Right It Is...This Cold Gets Old !

Since I was a kid...January meant one thing...with out fail...

Guess What, MPM...You're Going To Get Sick As A Dog...What The H_ll !?

Throw on your Jacket in the Morning...

Must Listen Carefully To The Weather For Any "Icy" Road Warning !

Bundle up...till you look like some kind of Eskimo...

But...Guess What...You'll get All the Cold...But None of the Snow !

Do you live where the Snow Piles Up...And The Wind gets down to 10 Below?

Yikes...That sounds horrible...We don't have it like that...But I want you to know...

It gets Wet Cold here...followed by Sun...

Start off in a Parka...You can go barefooted before the Morning is done.

Then...before the Day is through...

A Cold Front lingers awhile...Along with the Flu !

And Now at Night when the temperature plummets again down low...

Wake Up to a Freezing Morning...Bundle up again...and...Away you go !

There are Worse things in Life...I Am Keenly Aware...

Diseases, Poverty, Recessions, Inflation...Political Reforms that aren't Fair !

But...Right Now...While I sit here...with a Head and Chest Cold...and Sinus Infection...

(While I've been continually pumping the Vitamin C...and had my Flu shot injection).

It has become finally clear...after all these years...'round these here parts...

That I'm just going to get sick in January...as soon as the Cold Weather Starts !

Then 4 days later...when the Sun comes out to stay...

I'll be "laid-up" sick in bed...while the other Boys and Girls get to go out and Play !

Do I sound bitter...Do I whine a big "wah-wah" for something so small ?

Guess...It's hard to keep my "Manliness"...with a stopped-up head...making it hard to breathe at all.

But...the main thing I have to gripe about the Cold...is the Dang "Up and Down" Winter Monotony...

Makes me want to pull what's left of my hair...And Move to a Tropical Isle...Where I'll finally be Free !

It's not that Texas...Down here in the South...has the worse Winters...by any means...

It's just that being sick for some days now...has me yearning for Summertime...in my dreams !
