It's that time of the year....

and guess what? It is snowing again and my car is covered again. Now how many days was it till Spring? Let me calculate quickly. Oh yes, somewhere around 63 days, give or take a day or two.
I am on this oversleeping kick, 7:30 this morning. I think I must be making up for the sleepless nights I had last week. Oh well, I guess it doesn’t matter all that much.
This year is the 25th anniversary of the first federally celebrated Martin Luther King Jr.Day. I think Mr. King was a fine man well deserving of a holiday in his honor. When I worked for civil service I was delighted at all the holidays that were celebrated on a Monday. Now, as I have said many times before, I don’t like Monday holidays. I like to get my mail on Monday. Otherwise Monday holidays don’t affect very much else. The businesses are still open.
Getting back to business, the reason that nothing can be returned to the Sears store here in town is the fact that it is going out of business (closing its doors). The Sears store in Peoria will remain open. That is the reason why I am leery of buying a sewing machine here at the Sears store. However if they mark down the price sufficiently I might change my mind. There were quite a lot of them in the store when we were there on Friday.
Hooray for the Bears for their win I guess. I am not a football fan but I know that Jim always cheered them on and my son in law and nephew do too. I am more of a baseball fan and I cheer loudly for the St. Louis Cardinals in the baseball season and wear my Cardinal T-Shirt proudly. I also love basketball and cheer for the men’s basketball team at the University of Illinois.
I should close this out as it is painfully obvious to me and to you too that I have nothing important to say today. I hope that you all have a good week.
