Below zero temperatures...
Blistery cold winds...
Black ice...
Frozen fingers...
Wet feet...
Ice covered highways...
Five inches of snow on side streets...
hmmmmmmmm.....

Mackinac Island, Summer 2008
Glorious sunshine...
Warm weather...
Soft breeze...
PRICELESS!!!
Okay, so this post is really not wordless, but it is a Wednesday and I am really wishing for warm weather!

I really hope you get your warm weather so you can pass it on this way! brrr

Truth be told, I've actually had my share of winter weather, so anytime I can have warm weather and some sunshine I'll be happy. I understand now why there are so many "snowbirds" in Arizona and the warm, sunshine states in the winter months!

Great contrast. Wish I were back on Mackinac too.

"Blistery cold winds" - I couldn't have said it better myself!
I love the way you write. I'm new to genea-blogging and I'm having trouble getting started with writing about some of my pictures. I'm going to use your idea of dropping a few, well-chosen words under the picture.

Thank you Msteri and Evelyn for visiting! Although it is still cold today, it is above zero and best of all the sun is shining!

The Family

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck
