  8. Bill is an optimist, isn't he, Peggy? It's still January, that's your problem. The longest month of the year, but February is guaranteed to be shorter.
    Good take on the prompt, however.

  27. To me wet and foggy goes along with bone chilling.
    How true... In the Mid-west, it can look like things are warming up ... but looks can be deceiving.

    Thank you and welcome to me blog!
