AANNNNHA... AAHHHNNAAA... I miss you so.

I had gone into Winter determined to embrace it. I was determined to find some deep apreciation for the cold and the snow. I have many friends living where it is much colder and much snowier than Maryland. Well folks, I officially hate Winter. I want the trees to leaf out, the birds to sing a happy song(not the one they currently sing of desperation... tweet tweet, oh shit, the snow is tweet tweet coving all the food tweet) and to be able to wear a t shirt again. I hear my Birkenstocks crying in the closet. I have had more than enough winter this winter for certain.

I mostly miss Anna though. She sits out in the field with the other ladies of Frank's Trailer Works. Until the 15th, the road into Mikes house had not been plowed out. He had a well stocked pantry and just stayed put after the big snow. Eventually he had to break down and pay a guy with a front end loader to dig his mile long driveway through the woods.

I went over to see how the ladies fared. I cranked open the propane tank, lit the cat heater and mixed a cocktail. For an hour I just sat on the couch and day dreamed of past trips, future trip, and anything that came to mind.

I sure miss my Mistress.

Sometimes its the only thing to do... sit & dream with a cocktail. But what was that cocktail, Frank ?

Aluminum inspired: Silver Bullet, Road Runner,
Summer: Golden Dream, Blue Lagoon, Sea Breeze
Ice-based: Snowball, White Lady (although lighting that cat heater has melted her white coat), Long Island Iced Tea

... or just practical: Screwdriver or a Velvet Hammer

Spring must be just around the corner.

Amen Frank, I'm with you, spring can't come soon enough. I was hanging in my SOB yesterday thinking the same thoughts.

It was Jim Beam straight up. No potions to mix it with since I emptied her out before putting her away. Left the bar in place because it has to get real cold before the booze freezes.

You know, there are places you can live where it doesn't snow... :)

After reading this Frank, I was thinking about our time on road caravaning with PeeWee. Just like you I'm happest hooked-up and towing down the road! It's time to head to my trailer now.
I'll be dreaming of spring and the trips I have planned 2010.

See Ya on The Road

At least she's not alone out there! Fun picture of all the trailers huddled together.

I'm with you on the winter thing, Frank. The monochrome palette is getting old. It's sad when the most colorful thing in the picture is the cocktail. :-)
