Every once in a while it's fun to see how the years have changed us. Thirty years is a long time and I know that I like the way I looked then compared to today. No offense. And it's nice to see what an attractive group we were in 1982. Aren't we pretty?
I played tennis this morning at Wooddale. I stopped at the desk to check in next to John, one of the guys that was subbing for one of the regular players. The court charge was $6 and the guest fee was $8. The guy behind the counter went to get his calculator to add the numbers together to get $14. Numerology in this country has drastically diminished when a calculator is necessary to add 6 and 8. It's a good thing there wasn't a π involved in the calculation. Not to boast, but I could add π and 8 and get 11.14159 without a calculator.
It's raining in the Saintly City today. Most years this would be another snow bomb. I read from Paul Douglas that if December averages 4.3 degrees above normal, this will be the warmest year ever in Minnesota. We are currently 7 degrees above normal for December.
The Prairie Princess will be flying to Oslo tomorrow from her post in Dar es Salaam, then she'll be there three days until her flight home Wednesday.
