Winter officially began on 21 December 2012. Yesterday, the city of Pittsburgh got around six inches of snow in about six hours.
The Old Soldier was up before dawn yesterday. I did my breathing and stretching exercises, browned a couple of the turkey necks (with green peppers) that I cooked in the crock pot on Christmas and had that with bread and a couple of beers for breakfast.
Then as I sat down at my workstation to do some blogging and the sun came up I watched the snow start to come down around 9:00 a.m.
I went on a beer run. Walking in snow always makes me feel like a kid again. And since I have no aches or pains and my time is my own (I’m retired) I was happy.
Yesterday, this blog had over 26,000 visits for the month of December 2012. That’s the most visits in one month that this blog has gotten in over four years since it first went live on the Internet. The Old Soldier must be doing something right.
My brother and sister bloggers, writers and readers from all over the world, the Old Soldier salutes you! I could not have done it without you. Thank you.
