Winter Solstice

Here Comes the SUN!! Do-de-do-dee. Here comes the sun, la-la-la-la.

(Hey Bob! What's happenin'? Whatcha smiling about?)

It's solstice, and the sun is coming round the bend!

It's been so damn dark here in the North. I think I noticed it most this year, because even though it didn't get dark earlier than usual. {Which is about 4:15}. It was because my boys were not able to play outside as usual because it got so dark. So it made us a bit stir crazy in the house. I know we still have about five months before the snow is gone, but LORDYBEE the sun is coming around the corner!

Uh-uh-huh-uh-he-uh. [That's me doing an Eskimo jig].

So let's break out the Shawn Colvin and Enya albums, get dressed in earthy garb and celebrate the solstice everyone! Tomorrow we should have about a 5 second increase in daylight! - - - wahh wahh wahhhh. . .. I'm going to bed.

Oh, God, Shawn Colvin! :-)
I feel your pain, Bob. You're quite a big north of me, it's true, but that whole dark on the way to work and dark on the way home thing gets so old...

Gina - I agree, everyday I amaze even myself. What can I say? I'm Bob.

Coretta - I claim the picture on my blog is a photograph of the sun. I believe it was taken in Iowa of all places, by someone who likes to burn out their retina's apparently.

Pearl - Northerners unite, I should be able to knit a huge afghan by the time the snows have melted.

Oh, yes. Knitting is only one of his super powers.
