Another snow is being called for tomorrow, March 29. This is really getting hard to handle.
A couple of days here and there of warmer weather and then bang, the cold weather is back. Is this going to be the trend for the summer?
I remember back in the early seventies we had a really cold summer. Even on the 4th of July when the little boat motor I had quit working and I had to get out and push the boat back to the shore. My girlfriend at that time (wife now) was so mad because it was so cold and the water kept splashing over the side of the boat.
I sure hope that this summer is not like that one. I can't imagine anyone complaining this summer because it is too hot, if it gets hot. Not after this winter, the second worse one in history.
This week was spring break. My sister came up and stayed the week. It was nice to have her for a while, as we hadn't seen each other in over a year.
I was able to sneak away from the ladies for some time to get on the Amateur Radio. I acquired over 50 contacts with people all over the world, so far this week. Still have tomorrow to finish the week. Could make more tomorrow as there is a contest on the air to see how many you can contact in a 48 hour period.
When I was younger (much younger like 35 years ago) I would stay up for the whole 48 hours and operate. I can't seem to do that anymore. It is hell getting old.
Out of the more than 50 places where I spoke to someone, here are some of the more exotic ones: Chatham Island, Providencia, Andaman Island, Austral Islands, Israel, Faroe Islands, and the British Virgin Islands.
No writing this week. Shame on me, I must try to make some time to work that soon.
