    The last two especially had me laughing! Yesterday, my dad called from Wabasha, Minnesota. He said it was supposed to get down to ten below. "It's cooling off a bit," he said.

    pretty funny, MSS. Also pretty true. Here in LA you see people bundled up in parkas, etc. when the temp is about 59 degrees.

    I am always telling Gordon, "Back in MN people would be going around in their shirt sleeves w/ big grins."

    A friend sent it to me this morning.

    Rock 69 degrees is a great day, specially if the sun is out.
    I always love those days in the spring and fall, when it's nice and warm enough to enjoy the day, yet still too cold at night to hatch the mosquito's out!!

    Wish they would last longer!!
