One of them we had to fend off with all seven rounds in our 12-gauge. We were in no mood to take happy snaps after that.

Let's chip in and buy Marin a sunlamp. I think he is suffering from seasonal affective disorder.

I had a stupid sunlamp for almsot 30 years. I couldn't get rid of the damn thing as it was too high in the sky to turn off and throw away.

If I'd gown up and lived in a place with actual seasons I probably would not detest boring, sunny weather as much as I do. But after 30 years of the same damn thing day after day after day, I'm done with it. I had seasonal disorder over there, not here.

I agree with these guys. Perfect weasther to be out and about and having a great time.

My mommy was a tough, young newspaper reporter for Hearst during WWII and later went on to become the highest ranking, non-elected, non-appointed manager in the Honolulu City and County government. She broke the glass ceiling long before the term had been invented.

While I don't remember her ever sitting me down and telling me this, being around her taught me to always say what I think, never sacrifice honesty for the sake of tact or "feelings," (what today we call political correctness), never back down from a position you believe in, and above all, be consistent.

This approach to life has served me extremely well in the profession I ended up working in.

LOL! Acutally we got that, and more where it drifted. Just finished shoveling out a path so the gas man can deliver. I'm getting too old for this.

Instead, it's 34 and the winds been out of the north st 12 to 25 knots for two days.

I much prefer the quiet cold of Fairbanks.

But then Dauntless couldn't be there.
