Clean dish club
Sorry for the paucity of posts. My back troubles have been exacerbated by more icy weather. Today we are having a sleet/thunder storm. My net access and television come via satellite dish. Both dishes have been encased in ice and snow for the past two days. By the time I get ladders up and the dishes cleaned off, my back is so aggravated that I'm too ruined to accomplish anything at the keyboard. Making matters worse, before commencing this operation I have to make sure Karen isn't around or she'll get assailed for a failure to provide adult supervision around here.

This is unfair to Karen. I was a child prodigy at slipping adult supervision and have only improved as a stealthy avoider of oversight since reaching the age of majority. So I'm responsible for my own irresponsibility. Anyway, I got the dishes done in time to catch Syracuse beat Marquette but now they are already icing up again. This just leaves me time to thank you for checking in and promise that I will post again when physical and meteorological conditions permit...
