It’s cold out this morning, folks. The water for my tea is just about to boil. I can hear the pitch of the gas change as the glass pot changes temperature.
(When engrossed at my desk I sometimes use Tea Timer, a nifty, freeware program written by Dr. Herwig Henseler, I use the “for Lefties” version!)

The image “http://www.coffeeforless.com/images/uploads/main/bigconstantcomment.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.Constant Comment® again for me this morning. It’s an oats-for-breakfast morning. I am already fully dressed for work today but then I’m covered in a long, bright red fleece robe. SV & NV gave it to me several years ago. I rarely wore it because Willow shed so remarkably that the robe was always covered in white fur. And fleece never lets go. Without Will in the house I can wear the robe. I had thought of giving the robe away but never did. Now I’m glad of that. The 30 year old, State-o-Maine, blue velour robe that SV gave me, officially died this year. The shoulder split open, the loops for the sash belt ripped out, leaving forearm-sized gapes up the side. I cut it up with the idea I might make a pillow out of what’s left of it. So lovely a color, and so soft a fabric. Pure cotton.

I do not want to turn the heater on as the cost of propane is going up and I just don’t feel like starting a wood fire yet. I seem to have some unspoken goal this year to wait until November to use the wood.

After work, MH and I are going to see the Wallace and Gromit “Curse of the Were-Rabbit” movie. Looking forward. I could use the laughs.

More rain coming tomorrow. This from the National Weather Service: Sunday...Rain. Rain may be heavy at times in the morning. Windy with highs in the mid 40s. Northeast winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph. Chance of rain 100 percent. Additionally:

Wow. You've inspired me NOT to gripe about our comparatively great weather in central Ohi-ah.

One of my first tastes of culture shock happened when I migrated from NW to central Ohio, where people (to my Toledo ears) have a Southern accent. Central Ohi-ahns deny this. What Southern accent? they ask.

I've noticed that all of your friends have initials for names. Most odd. (The Lame Humor Police are coming for me.)

Any chance of rain?

Just as Bela Lugosi never drank.... viiiiine, I never drink tea (Lee). It doesn't agree with me (Lee). My brother used to live on tea, and my sister drinks it. But I have some mutant anti-tea gene (not Lee).

The Navy, however, made coffee-drinking necessary for survival. Standing "watch" at 3 am, and all that.

Lee, whose system doesn't agree with tea (Tea informs me that it has enough fans without my endorsement)

This is weird. My comment is showing up as "0 comments."

But... but....

1 is more than 0. Or so they taught me in school.

They lied! I can't believe it. So what else did they tell me that wasn't true? I'll bet Math ISN'T decimal-based!

Lee, confused (as ever)
