GOOD MORNING ON WHAT WILL BE A BRIGHT AND
CHILLY DAY IN NORTH FLORIDA.
I know it's a lot colder where most of you are but starting off at 48 with a high of only about 65 is cold down here after what we've been through. It sounds good to me and even the horses are frisky and the big dogs are running wild and free, daring a possum or a raccoon to come over the fence. This Saturday finds us beginning to draw close to the end of the college football regular season and basketball will soon be in the air. It's also prime horse eventing down here and we have a series of equestrian three day action coming up. So, it's a time when you have more energy to do things requiring lots of energy and the crisp clean air will be a pleasure after the damp humidity of days just past.
Have a glorious day and enjoy God's nature. It's always a wonder and we just need to take the time to appreciate it. Have fun, be safe and enjoy for today is the day to do whatever you want, whenever you want. You can get back to the old grind the day after tomorrow, but tomorrow, remember to praise and thank the One who made us. He just loves it when we talk with Him. Be blessed.
Thank you so much, Jimmy!

I've no idea who the genius
was behind this, but I think it's the cleverest thing I've seen lately!
I only wish I'd seen it forty-eleven years ago!
The text doesn't mention three other things I noticed: the nose appears to be a real carrot (presumably to offset all those treats, whether homemade or bought); the hats could be crocheted, knit, or purchased; plus a quantity of plain white wrapping paper combined with black duct tape will suffice for all.
