Back in the Cold

    Well I though I would have nothing to write about while we are back in PA but as usual I was wrong. Here we sit waiting for our third snow storm since Turkey Day and it's just way to cold. The days in the 20's and nights in the low teens are just not exciting any more. If I wanted to be this cold we could have stayed in Wyoming , at least there we would be seeing thousands of Elk and Bison. Oh well , bitch, bitch. We have had time to see Family and a few Friends since getting back and the visits have been really good but it seems like doing all  of the Medical check ups at the same are such a bother. We will correct that in the future . We have noticed that after you have been away from the Great North East for a bit that the pace of life here is going 100 miles an hour as where we seem to always be is doing 45. Not so bad when we drove about 10,000 miles this year and  all the close misses have been in the last 3 weeks within 20 miles of here.. To many people with too much to do with out enough time. It really is sad as all the ones we care for are here. I believe in the future we will try to come back during warmer weather as I am not doing well with the cold this trip. Maybe the short days and frostbite have a major role in these thoughts . After you have been warm for 10 strait months it really is a shock. We will miss everyone here but in 3 weeks we will be back in the 50's and 60's down in Texas. We will be getting there a little sooner than we though as we will need a couple of days of training on how to handle and band the big migrating birds, really looking forward to doing it. We missed it last year as we arrived to late. Been looking at all the Refuges in the US and there are so many really cool places to Volunteer at, places with Turtle Rescue and Ocelot breeding here in the US, who knew . When you travel with the best weather in mind all the time you get use to T shirts and shorts as the dress of the day. It really make a body feel good all the time. It also makes the people around you have a better attitude towards life . Maybe being surrounded by happy folk makes us all better people ? With Xmas so close and another New Year on the door step ,old traditions will fade away and  new ones and with the new generation taking the reins, all will be good. Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to all, we love all of you.               G & L
