A New Year

Hello my Darlings,

I hope the new year will start well. I am getting over a cold and it is annoying having to deal with fatigue. Can you believe being tired makes me cranky? I have not been a joy to be around lately even on the telephone. Yes, my bad. I hope you don't tell anybody of my dark side.

The weather has been warm these last few days and we just finished a cold snap. One night hit a -39 wind chill, brrr! I thought the walls were going to crack open with all the noises from the walls. Wow! My son woke me up one night to ask what was going on with all the noise. I had to explain about effects of heat and cold, expansion and constriction with wood. Science lesson at 4am.

I did two DIY bird houses with a two litre pop bottle and a milk jug. They look mighty lovely too, if you won't mind me saying so. The only problem is, I have no idea where the birds are. I heard some one morning and that was it. I'm not sure if the dog is scaring them off or not.

I must also report that during that cold snap, both front and back doors froze all around the edges. We literally had to chip ice, use a hair dryer and screw driver to open the door! I don't know about the contractors who put this house together but I'd like to chew their heads off for such a shabby job. We are not impressed.

Alright, I know you must run and I can't enthrall you with more tales of life at my igloo. I will leave you these ---> Logic Riddle

Two planes take off at the same exact moment. They are flying across the Atlantic. One leaves New York and is flying to Paris at 500 miles per hour. The other leaves Paris and is flying to New York at only 450 miles per hour ( because of a strong head wind ). Which one will be closer to Paris when they meet?

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

Did you know that dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish?

The shinbone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.

I send my prayers out. Please take care and stay safe. Have a wonderful day, night, sweet dreams or wet nightmares.


Answer, Riddle-> They will both be the same distance from Paris when they meet!!
