What's up with this weather? Kinsey qualifies for Medicare

For crying out loud. What's up with this weather? My winter sports activities have been greatly reduced by unseasonably warm weather. Kinsey was supposed to take me snowshoeing and x-country skiing but there hasn't been any fresh snow in the past ten days and there's none in the forecast for the next ten. Bummer!

Kinsey says it's the sunniest winter she's seen in 12 years. There is a positive side for her, since she pays the bills. Our solar panels are pumping out energy like never before, in winter. The way things are looking, between our credits for excess production in the sunny months and the sun we've had, we may not have to pay anything for electricity this year. That warms the cockles of Kinseys heart. She is such a tight wad.

Kinsey is also quite the klutz. We were going to get out for a little cross country skiing but she slipped on the ice and twisted her knee. We did get in one short go on the snowshoes. Kinsey bot a new set and we took them out for a test run. She likes them! They are called MSR Evo Ascent. Click here to see what they look like.

In other news, Kinsey turned sixty five last Sunday. I think she was a little bummed. I don't think it's the sixty five that got to her so much as the fact she qualifies for Medicare.

Since Kinsey is babying her knee right now she went to see The Wolf of Wall Street. I got to stay in the car. When she got back she said it was a waste of time. Three hours of swearing and gratuitous, pointless sex scenes. Apparently, they use the "F" word over 500 times! Wow! She said even the guy selling the tickets was warning people about the sex and language. She said she actually saw a couple walk out. She might have walked out too but you know how she is about getting her money's worth.

Kinsey thought staying home and watching "Wall Street" and Gordon Gecko again would have been more entertaining. But, what does she know? Wolf has been nominated for the Best Picture Oscar. Although, she suspects the nomination had much to do with Hollywood's love affair with Scorsese.

That's about it from sunny Montana. Will write as soon as something interesting happens. Praying for snow!
