cold cold cold!!

Last night I played in my last performance of the Messiah for the year. I really do enjoy that piece and feel fortunate that I have been able to play it so many times in my life.

After the performance this super cute boy (maybe 5 years old) came up to me and just kept smiling. He was a doll and didn't say a whole lot, just kept smiling at me. His mom joined him and said "He wanted to come up and tell you that he thinks you are cute. He is also hoping you aren't married." HOW CUTE IS THAT?? I told him that unfortunately I am married, but I have a sister who isn't married and she is even cuter than me. :-) My friend took a picture of us, so when I get it I will post it.

On the way home I had to stop and fill up on gas. This was one of the stupid pumps that you had to hold the whole time. While I waited for my truck to fill up I was literally freezing my butt off!!! I could hardly stand. I was cold to my core and cursing the pump! I get in the car and check the temperature. It was -1F/-18C'. Ok this got me thinking to Sundays Amazing Race. One of their challenges was having to stand practically naked for 2 minutes in -180C'. If I was that cold at -18C' I cannot even imagine what -180C' would feel like!

The trick with those pumps is to wedge the gas cap from your truck under the gas pump lever. Works every time for me!

Yup it's cold. But now I can say it's officially December and the Christmas season!

Once you put a "-" sign in front of a number it makes no difference how big the number is and it makes no difference if it's Fahrenheit or Celsius. It is way too cold. You're lucky to have that big truck to drive in those remote areas during a storm. I miss hearing you play your oboe, bring it for Christmas.
