    Spring must be here

    It must be springtime. it got above freezing today and I saw my 4 year old running around outside bare foot and wearing shorts and a t-shirt. It was all of 33 degrees. The kid is half Finnlander and half Irish. The Finnish half is used to the cold and the Irish side (mine) is too dumb to know when to wear a coat.

    I'm glad you said that. I was gonna say it but it would have seemed tacky.

    (We don't know if my last name is Irish or Scottish. The great grandfather the name comes from was an illiterate orphan, so it's unclear if it was McMillan or MacMillan. Either way, I figure I can make jokes about both countries.)

    I sent Alyson out barefoot today but her bare feet stuck to the was 1Ί outside.
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Paul, I understand the shorts, but bare feet. Now that is some Irish blood! LOML is 75% Irish

    Bare feet? I need woolen socks half the time around here.

    I'm half Irish and half German. I apparently missed the genial, friendly, happy genes on BOTH sides. Just my luck.

    If the world should blow itself up, the last audible voice would be that of an expert saying it can’t be done.
