Even though it only got up to 30 degrees here today, my mother got me out to go to lunch. After a delicious lunch at McDonald's, we cruised the cemetery. The McDonald's here opened back up last week after being closed for about 2-3 months to rebuild the building. I think everyone, including myself, has been having withdrawals. Both drive-thru lanes have been lined up for two weeks. One night, they had the police there directing traffic. I never realized that McDonald's was that popular. Go figure.

My brother-in-law is cooking dinner for us tonight. He is a fantastic cook, so I know we will enjoy it. I may need some assistance getting into their house. They don't have railings on their porch and steps.

It is so cold here and not supposed to warm up for over a week. The high next week is going to be around 32 and the lows will be in the teens. I know those of you up north are used to this, but it is unusual for us to have so many cold days in a row. At least I don't have to go to work. I do, however, have to go to physical therapy 3 days next week, plus I plan to ride to Huntsville with my mother on Thursday. She has a doctor's appointment. I have decided to wait for her in the car. We are going to take some blankets for me to wrap up in to stay warm. We may go to lunch and do a little shopping while we are there.

I hope everyone enjoys the remainder of the day. Try to stay warm.

I hope you had fun at your brother in law's house. We had some people over to watch the basketball game.

It didn't get over 23 degrees here today and it is supposed to be cold all week. Brrr! Bus duty is not going to be fun next week!
