Slinks

Screen Shot 2013-12-29 at 12.29.48 AMIt’s Sunday and the exact middle of the week between the two holidays. The TV weatherman is predicting very cold temps, some sub-zero for our area in spite of what the graphic represents there. We could get 6″ of snow by Wednesday. I wouldn’t be surprised if a 60° day popped up somewhere in there. This is Illinois.

The New Year’s holiday is usually much more laid back than Christmas. Hell, there’s nothing to buy except for the beverages and snackies (or party tickets perhaps) depending on where you celebrate next New Year’s Eve next Tuesday night. Many of us will just stay home and fall asleep before midnight on that day. But for now, it’s just another Sunday, except for the tree that has to get disassembled and put back in the box and stored up in the attic or basement or put out for recycling or cut up for firewood and the mess that still needs to get cleaned up. And where in the hell are we going put all this new stuff? All of that on top of repercussions from New Year’s Eve. Have a plan and act upon it.

The Slinks are lined up in a nice center-justified column, all awaiting your mouse click.
