Out of the Blue

I got off to a lazy start today, thanks to the oddly narcotic effects of an overnight snowfall. Not wanting to pressure my neighbor into shoveling my walk again, I did get out there first thing, but this turned out to be more of a dusting than anything, and while I (literally) scraped the surface with my shovel, the sun is actually taking care of more of the job than I did (maybe I can still convince my neighbor we're even now?). Now where do I place a request that the rest of this winter's storms leave such an easy clean-up behind?

I remember we used to live to see this show - it was the highlight of the week! The next day everyone would be talking about what was on. And of course waiting to see if Stuart Chieffet's head was going to finally pop off was the icing on the cake. He had this strange way of sort of rotating his head as he just had to see it.

Man those were the (mostly 8-bit and 16-bit) days!
