Weather... or not

I almost booked myself another trip to Costa Rica last night. I was feeling depressed and drag-assed and I just wanted to run off somewhere, get away, breathe some different air. I discovered some "found" money at the bank yesterday, and it was more than enough to pay for the trip. Besides, I haven't been to Costa Rica in more than a year now, and it's about time I went back. My Spanish is getting rusty.

I decided not to book the trip because I try not to make decisions when my brain isn't functioning correctly, which really cuts down on my decision-making anymore. I really DO need to plow my garden and get it ready for planting next month. Today is a good day to do that. It's warm, sunny and very nice outside.

Of course, if I lived here, I would be on the next plane to ANYWHERE else. I don't think I would ever come back, either.

My Cracker bones ache just looking at THAT forecast.


That temp in Wisconsin is cool....not cold.
Cold is when you spit and it bounces off the ground.....That's cold...As in Iceland. Keflavic to be exact.

Try Puerto Rico...I was just there in January and will be moving there in April to the Northwest Coast. Only thing is there aren't a lot of whores down there to mess with unless you take a weekend trip to san juan but there are plenty of white retirees where i'll be living and they live well and cheap..

Pics from my trip can be found at

Well, at the moment I'm about a degree warmer than Wisconsin...:

It's pretty chilly today with the wind...about -25 celsius with the wind chill factor...

What in Hell's keeping you? Get your Cracker ass to C.R. and start polishing up your Spanish. Suck up some sunshine for me, too. How's the fishing down there?
Any hunting opportunities?

Surprised that you like Costa Rica. Wish I knew how to attach pics here...the nicest picture I ever took was a sunset there. Would be glad to forward to you if you're interested. That said, Costa Rica is definitely a 3rd world country in my opinion. Filled with haves or have nots. Nothing in between. I wouldn't go back. What about St. Thomas?

I keep sending weather forecasts for my area to her and she keeps e mailing me back. The last one just said :Fuck you"

Hey, cold weather like this builds character! (And Wisconsin's got the characters to prove it!)

Ask me sometime about the guy who froze to death walking the half mile from his stalled airplane to the heated office.
