Well, here it is, Wednesday morning. The temps are supposed to rise into the low 50's (F). This is good. Spring is only a little more than a month away. While we've had very little snow so far this winter, we have had the cold' days when the temps failed to climb out of the 20's (F).
The plants I ordered from the Aquarium Co-op are arriving today. The US Postal service has told me so. I'm going to the movies this evening, so let's hope they get here before 6:15 PM, otherwise they're going to be sitting on the porch for a few hours, which would not be a good thing. Since they were shipped priority mail, I'd expect them to arrive way before then, however this is the US Mail and, while at one time they were reliable, now their reliability is spotty at best.
Also arriving today will be my Stryd. That's coming UPS, a service which is far more reliable.
As was the case with The Body in Repose, I've been watching YouTube videos to learn about life on Mackinac Island during the winter. The one on ice fishing was particularly educational: the size of the hole you make depends upon the size of the fish you're trying to catch, fishing for pike require a larger diameter hole. You use an ice auger, now a days most of them are battery operated. Ten inches seems to be the widest. So, if you needed a bigger hole, say if you decided to fish with a buddy, you'd make two holes side by side. If you required something even larger, say big enough to push a body through... well, I can say anymore.
Anyway, as I was saying, I've been watching videos. This is a good one, in fact, after watching it, I felt a little guilty about setting a murder mystery there... but only for a short time.
And, what about Mitch McConnell trying to keep the RNC from going to hell in a handbasket? I'm betting he had a WTF moment the instant he heard they were calling the January 6 riot a 'legitimate political discourse.' Someone should tell Mitch he's way, way to late to stop that from happening. All of a sudden we're beginning to hear tiny voices, like Mitch, suddenly speaking up... someone called them Washington Insiders. Whispers are saying the January 6 committee has explosive testimony and these insiders are running for cover. Speaking of running, here's a brief clip of Kevin McCarthy running away from Rachel Scott after she asks him about the alleged political discourse. These dumb shits are jumping from the frying pan into the deep fryer.
