Good for a Laugh

I heard John say the temperature was in the 30s. 30 something seemed cool. The something must have been an 8, but I didn’t pay attention to it on this foggy day. By the time we met Marla walking Albert, I knew a sweatshirt AND a windbreaker were too heavy. Having already received permission to use their post as a coat rack, I slung the jacket and hat on the top. I made a mental note to take a photo of it when we came back, thinking it would look like the Grim Reaper, as it did several weeks ago.

The picture told a different story. There was nothing death-like about the jacket. It looked like a crazed octopus wearing a black cape. How could you be frightened by this silly thing hanging over the word “mooseltoe”? It was good for a laugh, and that’s about all.

  1. I had to chuckle, because it definitely looked like a crazed octopus assaulting the box. It appears your neighbor may have taken a risk with such a proposition.
    Our weather is destined to take a dip to about 47 at night, only to pop up for the weekend. No snow here.

        1. I grew up in West Tennessee. We wished on every winter cloud, hoping snow would fall and cause school to be closed early. I’ll bet it didn’t happen more than a couple of times in 12 years. I’m glad you know how to welcome snow!
