Underwear weather is here

Posted on March 30, 2011


You can’t make these things up. In my ceaseless mining for details of the lives of my Civil War veterans I encountered this announcement in the Central Lake Torch of November 1, 1900:

I thought I should save it for a November post, but what if I forgot? I forget everything. So here it is. If I remember, I’ll run it again next fall when hunting season begins.

To make up for reminding you that it is still underwear weather out there, here is a nice cheery photo from Margie Guyot. She writes that she saw her first crocus yesterday. This isn’t it, as she says the photo came out blurry. This is from last year. Waste not want not.

Margie also claims that it is going to reach 40° F. out there today, and that she is making a bottle tree along her driveway. I am looking forward to seeing both of those things. Now I’m off to see what I can find that would make a good 5k (3.1 miles) run/walk Around Here.*  I’m thinking Margie’s driveway is an option.

(*I almost forgot.  I found a 5k training schedule on the Mayo Clinic site.  This is a seven week schedule for a rank beginner who wants to do a 5k run, but it will make you feel better about yourself if you already go for a lot of walks.  And remember, the First Annual TLV 5k is a run/walk, your choice.)
