Week-long Welcomings from Moosylvania: Jan. 29th through Feb. 4th

Welcome to The Moose Pond! The Welcomings posts give the Moose, old and new, a place to visit and share words about the weather, life, the world at large and the small parts of Moosylvania that we each inhabit.

Welcomings will be posted at the start of each week (every Sunday morning). To find the posts, just bookmark this link and Voila! (which is Moose for “I found everyone!!”).

The format is simple: each day, the first moose to arrive on-line will post a comment welcoming the new day and complaining (or bragging!) about their weather. Or mentioning an interesting or thought provoking news item. Or simply checking in.

So … what’s going on in your part of Moosylvania?

NOTE: The comments page will now split off after 20 or so left margin comments with the most recent comments on the current page. To see the older comments, scroll to the bottom of the page and use the link.

    I did 5.76 miles. It was hard but ok. It was chilly & drizzly. I was really cold when I got home, so I took a nap. I still feel chilly. I don’t know how y’all in cold climates do this for weeks at a time. (actually, I do — I went to high school in Austria & we wore 2 pair of hose under our jeans, and wool socks, and we were glad for that brief time when wearing leg warmers was fashionable)

      I used to do the annual MS 9-mile walk back in KC, KS without any prep. Feet ached afterwards but mostly was OK. Youth is definitely wasted on the young even though I was actually in my 40s at the time. Sure as heck couldn’t do it now.

      Warm bath might help you warm up. If you were here, you could have the rocking chair by the fire. :)

      If I walked 5.6 miles, I’d get lost.

        Depends on which direction I went. :)

        It was on the Town Lake Trail, so as long as I kept going, I’d get back where I started.

          Good plan, that.

          I don’t think they’d actually finished the trail when I lived in Austin. (I left in November 1980.) I never knew about it anyway if they did.

    Ok, y’all cold climate people, you can laugh at me. It’s going to be 60 in the morning when I head to church, so I’m wearing my wool skirt & a sweater.

      Don’t forget warm tights, anotherdemocrat :)

        ugh, yes – my least liked thing about this time of year; not being able to go bare-legged
