It is so…

I’m so tired of friends and family up North saying they wished they were here when we complain about the cold.

They say, it’s below zero here! Yeah right Blah, Blah, Blah! It’s below zero outside, and you are inside where you have your furnace kicked up to what 70, 75? It’s in the low 60’s here, inside, outside, 24/7. We don’t have no stinkin heater.

So a few days ago, Techie and I went and sat in the car, oh it was so nice and warm in the car. The temp in the house hadn’t been above 18c all day, which in f is about 60-62.

Tech now has 2 t-shirts, one red, the other turquoise. The other day she came in to the kitchen carrying the red one; guess she got cold!

    Felipe and Norm, you are correct Techie is too short to both steer and operate the pedals; she gets the cat for the pedals.
    Mic, great idea, i'll check out that link. Thanks

    I've seen these in a store and was impressed with the very real-looking simulated flames. Was told it operates for 9 cents per hour on high setting. I personally liked the black one best but they came in 3 wood colors plus white & black colors….and they roll-around.

    Maybe you could order one for UPS delivery. Or maybe if Jonna is interested (since she also is extra cold in winter) maybe you could have a couple delivered to wherever Mimi is and she could arrange reliable shipment of a couple units.

    You must have one long legged dog there or do you have two, one for the wheel and one for the petals?

    Cute, but the pooch doesn´t drive, right?

    Roni, si es verdad, pobre mi! We may have to look into a space heater, it's just that this is so abnormal. Days of rain and overcast, we just had 2 days of scattered sun and 24c temps, and now rain again today.
    Steve, What? you don't think they'd accept that I got tired and let the dog drive?
    LeslieL, I've pulled out both the tea kettle AND the tea pot. And I bought a big bar of Abuelita the other day.
    LeslieB, oooooohhhh seat warmers, nice.

    I hope my earlier comment is taken well. I did not mean it in a smarty-pants way – it is just that it has been raining forever in Portland, and after a short break yesterday will rain for another ever

    They are some dandy DeLonghi gas space heaters that people at Lake Chapala rave about. Maybe one of those, even if you only used it every few years

    Well the other night when we were out and about..we turned on the seat warmers in the car and Richard turned on the heating steering wheel…it felt soooo gooood. Leslie

    It is very cold. 40F and freezing! 😀 A steady stream of coffee, hot chocolate and hot tea is helping to warm us up.

    For a moment, I thought you had been caught by one of the speeding cameras. Now, that would be one to explain to the judge.
