Note to a season, from a place

Dear Winter,

You must be losing your touch.  There is bright sunshine and that 65 degree reading is an outside temperature.  There are freaking cherry trees in bloom.

Are you feeling okay?  Has this global warming malarkey got you down?  Because I don't know if you realize, but this is Oregon... in February.  There have been 4th of July holidays where I would have been thrilled with this kind of weather.

Perhaps you are just exhausted from stomping on all those good citizens in the South these past few weeks.  Maybe the pressure of performing for the Olympics was just too much and you decided to get out of town and lay low for a while... go someplace where no one would think to look for you, like say... Texas. 

Well, never you mind, everybody needs a break when they've been working hard, including you.  I'm just going to put my shades on, kick back and enjoy the sun, and I'll be here waiting when you decide to come back and rain on my parade.  Then we can dance together until May or so, just like old times.

Much love,


  1. Cute. Clever. Funny. Perfect.

    Thanks for putting a smile on my face, since winter is kicking my butt in Charlotte.

  2. I would definitely be enjoying 65 degrees. At $4.00+ for propane I would be seeing less $'s flying out my windows.
    Bring it on!

  3. It's going to be 60 and sunny in Charlotte today too! I can't wait. I'm putting my face up in the sun. Sun makes a bad day good! Best, P
