Un-Typical Saturday

Winter has arrived. Today the snow came down, and came covered the grass, the streets and the trees. We have now had the first official snow of the new year. My county is now under a Level 1 Snow Emergency for driving.

Watching the falling snow is somewhat calming, while it turns the outdoors white, the indoors can feel warm and cozy.

As the snow fell, I was wondering if the driveway would be so bad that I would have a hard time backing out to get to church in the morning. Then I looked out the window and saw someone shoveling my driveway - what a surprise. The man who lives across the street had shoveled his driveway a little earlier, and I noticed he was clearing mine. What a nice neighbor! It pays to make friends with a few neighbors - you never know when you might need one, or want to do a favor for them.

This neighbor is in a profession well known to me (the job I retired from) and works at the same place I used to work. I am glad he bought the house across the street where my friend used to live (before she passed away), and his two daughters are the cutest.

God put a few helpers in my world, but I never know when they are going to show up. I always have something to look forward to. I am no longer looking backward. The past is the past and I move forward at my own pace, but always forward. A new day, a new tomorrow to experience.

Best Letters


Dear Wife,

I’m writing you this letter to tell you that I’m leaving you forever. I’ve been a good man to you for 7 years and I have nothing to show for it. These last 2 weeks have been hell. Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today and that was the last straw. Last week, you came home and didn’t even notice I had a new haircut, had cooked your favorite meal and even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate in 2 minutes and went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps. You don’t tell me you love me anymore; you don’t want sex or anything that connects us as husband and wife. Either you’re cheating on me or you don’t love me anymore; whatever the case, I’m gone.

Your EX-Husband. P.S. Don’t try to find me. Your SISTER and I are moving away to West Virginia together! Have a great life!

Dear Ex-Husband,

Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. It’s true you and I have been married for 7 years, although a good man is a far cry from what you’ve been. I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining and griping. Too bad that doesn’t work. I DID notice when you got a haircut last week, but the first thing that came to mind was ‘You look just like a girl!’ Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can’t say something nice, I didn’t comment. And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because I stopped eating pork 7 years ago. About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, and I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed $50 from me that morning. After all of this, I still loved you and felt we could work it out. So when I hit the lotto for 10 million dollars, I quit my job and bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica. But when I got home you were gone. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won’t get a dime from me. So take care.

Signed, Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Hell & Free! P.S. I don’t know if I ever told you this, but my sister Carla was born Carl. I hope that’s not a problem for you.
