A RETIRED NEWSWOMAN, I live in a scenic creek-valley in a semi-rural township in northeast Ohio.
Topics and frequency of postings are according to my mood.
My mood is often, though not absolutely always, upbeat. That's part of who I am!

What a job, slogging through deep snow as Mick carefully looks for a spot in the woods where he can do his duty without burying his butt in the snow! Finally he finds the right spot, under the hemlock at the edge of a slope. He positions himself, and just at that moment the big ODOT plow truck comes roaring and rumbling into the valley, big lights flashing and spreading their drama around in the darkness. Mick rolls down the slope and is buried in all that cold whiteness! He gives up and heads for the house. We'll have to try later.
