Old Man Winter is blowing cold artic air in my neck of the woods. Valentine’s Day couldn’t come soon enough to warm things up a bit.
It’s also Friday the 13th, one of three in 2015. The word of the day is paraskevidekatriaphobia. It’s all Greek to me; which simply means from Chicago to Boston and all points as far south as Atlanta, those suffering from fear of Friday the 13th and feeling the effects of the latest polar vortex have a perfectly good excuse for staying home and avoiding all calamity. That should cover at least half of the 17 to 21 million people in the US who take issue with the calendar on this frigid Friday.
I, for one, have a lunch date with my grandchildren I plan on keeping. My valentine is coming along, which means Jimmy and I will have no trouble braving the cold together. But before I go, here’s a few Fun Fotos to warm your heart with a chuckle or two, courtesy of Schnebly Winery.
