Got a nice surprise in the post yesterday ....... my Combo card which allows me to get an SS number, start a business and enter/leave the country at will.
The mills of God grind slowly ...................

Goodnight and Good Moaning

Is it wrong that I'm kinda excited about going to see the Russian State Ballet Company performing Swan Lake?
Mmmmmmmmm, tutus.

I wouldn't say it was wrong, well not to your face. LOL

Ballet is a show, obviously as with all shows at least somebody likes it or it wouldn't exist. So go on have fun. (Besides I sort of like Swan Lake myself, and the Nutcracker Suite, And Carmen Oh that's an Opera sorry. But a little bit of class in your life is no big deal and good for you.)

Oh don't let the wife stare at the male dancer's gentleman vegetables too long or she might start to compare you. LOL LOL (and they cheat with rolled up socks or something)

No, you're OK there. Rarely does one see Nijinsky in the bumper @ Ballinrobe. But I've seen a lot of danse macabre over the last fence when the going was heavy.

Sherries anyone?

Stuck in house all day .......... snowing since lunchtime and about 8" now. Means I'll have to go out in the morning and shovel so HSH can get to work. It continues tomorrow before changing to rain tomorrow night - so it's going to be a muddy weekend.

My father in law's birthday was Feb 29. He often joked that he was driving for 48 years before he was 16

Goodnight and Good Moaning

You've just answered a longstanding question of mine about The Twelve Days of Christmas. I've always wondered who, or what, the "lords a-leaping" were and imagined them to be common as muck, hardly worthy of the title, what with all their leaping and prancing about. I see now how wrong I have been. They really were a rare breed indeed.

Was is the operative word. Passed on to the happy hunting ground in 2000. Didn't have a great voice but loved to sing in the bath and treated it as his personal auditorium
Just googled Leapling. The bit about Columbus/eclipse/native Indians was interesting.
Still snowing but a neighbour did a good deed and brought his snow-thrower and cleared up the front. About 14" and the rain which was forecast has been deferred to tomorrow.
My eMail is down since last night (gmail) .......... does anyone have any info? Anything to do with the ongoing Google kerfuffle?
