Well, I finally finished up the long race.
The last lap has taken locale as well as now I am off to the showers.
This race has been held for over 60 straight years as well as I have finally hit the tape. The race I am referring to is an endurance run that has gone on for 61 straight winters in a row now. And, I’m not talking about those wimpy eastern winters. I have lived our entire life in the farther northern end where the Winter time lasts at least half the year. The Heating as well as Air Conditioning is running month after month after month just in order for a body to not freeze. These winters are definitely not for the faint of heart. But, that is all behind me now. I have taken up residence farther south of our beach loft land. I could not be happier. While I miss some people as well as many of the regional customs that I grew up with, I am far more comfortable in the sunshine. It feels so great to be able to lift our face to the sun throughout the year. This easy act really does a body nicely. Not to mention that I no longer have to count on our Heating as well as Air Conditioning natural gas furnace to keep me alive while in the winter. The Winter time here is easy compared to what I lived through for all those years. Now, I have a heat pump that both heats up our beach loft as well as cooling it. While the summer time time gets really, really hot, that only lasts about three months or so. Then, the weather is just perfect for the rest of the year. I’ll make those trade-offs certainly for the rest of our life.
