Cold Tuesday Morning...

One thing about cold weather: it brings out the statistician in everyone
It's too cold outside for angels to fly...

Headlines:  Live shark found in Florida condo swimming pool.  Wildlife officials are trying to
 figure out exactly how a shark got into the swimming pool at a South Florida condo complex.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation 
Commission officers responded to the Mariner's Cay condominium in Hypoluxo last week 
after a woman found a live five-foot blacktip shark in the pool.

The woman told officers she saw two young men running from the pool, which is located 
near the shoreline of the Intracoastal Waterway. The officers removed the shark
 from the pool and returned it to the ocean.  Blacktip sharks are among 
the most common species in coastal South Florida.

Not sure exactly how this happened, but the condo is surrounded by water.

Other news.  Temperatures dropping here in the Sunshine State.  Still warmer 
than most places, but for us it sure is winter right now.  Arvid still under covers.

Though yesterday was chilly the sun came out several times.  Shadow sure
made the most of it.  He was constantly finding the best spots to nap.   Arvid and I went to
 meet our tenants from Switzerland.  They have been renting from us now for close to 7 months 
and we only met them yesterday.  Very nice people and we hit it off right away.  I was invited
 for champagne.  I who never drink enjoyed a glass of French champagne.

I can no longer see you with my eyes.  Touch you with my hands,
 but I will feel you in my heart FOREVER!  Life as we all know goes on.  Does not stop,
does not pause for anyone.  Still I have so much to be grateful for.  Missing my Brutus
will now always be a part of my everyday.  Never thought it would be this way so fast.

Good morning everyone.  it's a cold day for us as well.  Arvid is freezing.  I said to him, 
"you are from Norway."  He said, "I have not lived there for 25 years.  That's not my 
home, this is my home."  Guess he's not one of those true Vikings.

I may not have everything I want in life, but I am blessed enough to have 
all that I need! (but not Brutus)  For this I am grateful...
