Cold sucks....

Ok, what's so bad bout it be'n 45 degs.???? I done tole everbody that I could handle 40 degs with no problem. So last night I were sit'n there on the couch read'n a book and the temp outside went down to 45 degs. But I were cold. Had little chill bumps all over my body....my feet were cold. The Mr Heater propane heater was crank'n out btu's all over the place. Like bout 18,000 of 'em.

Then I went to bed.....Mr Heater off of course. Drag a ton of blankets up over my head. I were still cold. Freez'n cold. By the time my first "pee" alarm went off at 4am, I was figger'n I was gonna die if'n it got any colder. There weren't nuttin special bout last night what would make me feel colder than usual. It were just cold. The wind weren't even blow'n. Maybe I'll drag out the bottle of vitimin 'C' again and overdose. By the way, it only got down to 44 last night.

I moved the bird feeder the other day. Fill it up with some old squished up bread. This morn'n there must a been a hunnert birds out there peck'n round in that feeder. It were too late for pics. Them birds done eat all the bread and flew slap off. One set of birds in particular was need'n a photo took of 'em. Some people call 'em green jays, and that probly what they are.....accord'n to Google. Will try again tomorrow morn'n for a pic and you can decide for yourself. Maybe I oughter run down to Walmart an' get me some bird seed an' a few donuts since I gonna be here a while.

Went off to the lake yesterday. Stop by OFM Barney's house, but he were feel'n bad. Hav'n him one them nasty migraine headache thingys. Didn't stay long 'cause I knowed he was in pain. I 'member one time I had me a split'n headache like that. Thought I were gonna die. Ya see, I were sit'n in this bar mind'n my own business....sip'n up a cold one an' talk'n to this motorcycle dude. Some other guy walks up behind me an smak me with a beer bottle/pool cue/baseball bat....or something like that....right up side my head. Knock me slap out cold. I rekon it was this guys what I was talk'n to boyfriend or something like that an' he thought I was cut'n in on him. Anyhows, I had this big ol' lump on my head bout the size a agg. Hurt like all bloody hell. I had me a migraine.....pooof, just like that. 

Ok....what the hell??? This morn'n I crank up the generator to brew my morn'n coffee. The 40 amps battery charger is hook up to the generator.....come on automatic. The voltage go all the ways up to 14.2 volts and beyond....just like it suppose to do. So's I let the generator run for bout 30 or 45 minutes. Ok, so now I got charged batteries. I scratch my head think'n bout all this. Why all a sudden my batteries take a charge? It's cloudy today so there ain't no way to check if'n the solar panels will hold the charge. Life is hard....but life is good.

  1. A down comforter is the answer to cold nights. It takes me about 15 seconds to get toasty warm once I climb into bed.

    2. Getting OUT of that would be the hard part. If it was less than about 55-60 degrees outside of my warm bed, I think I'd stay there forever.
