Just for the record

Sunday October 14th, 2018, the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul had their first snow storm of the season marking the start of another very long winter. Our weather here is really strange! Not all of the leaves have fallen yet. Mother Nature can be so impatient sometimes. Ah well, I guess it’s time to break out the snow shovels and buy a new bag of Sno-Melt. Thank God for attached garages and the Skywalk system between our downtown office buildings and of course Central-heating. Our high temperature today is predicted to reach 42F.

Three words from a haiku

I got my inspiration for this post from a Haiku posted by scooj,naturaladventures. It was titled C2H5OH and contained three words with really jumped out at me. I thought the posting was both clever and unusual so much so in fact that I kept thinking bout it for many hours. At about 10:00p.m. yesterday evening I was reading in bed. I think I must have dozed off for a few minutes. I woke up and looked for my notepad and wrote the following:
SALVATION
Salvation a present possession not merely an object of hope, note: Ignatius bishop of Antioch wrote these words in ca. 167
RUINATION (an anagram)
Ruination through urination, pissing away one’s total wealth
MODERATION
Moderation, that happy balance between too much and not enough
