Still winter here

Still winter here. At the moment it is freezing minus 7C. The kids are enjoying the snow, they even makes a snowman. Monday the temperature will rise again, so no white Christmas here. Yesterday a family member died (an uncle of the XYL), so we'll having a funeral Wednesday. Tomorrow my XYL having her birthday. Not to much time for playing with the radio, I am afraid. Have a nice weekend.

  1. Paul,

    So sorry to here of the death of your wife's uncle. What a horrible time of the year to have to grieve. It will make Christmas time especially difficult for his family.

    I hate funerals: the last one I went to upset me for days and I said I would never go to another one. I wish you and the family strength to get through it and hope you are still able to enjoy Christmas.

    My thoughts are with you.

    PS Glad your kids are enjoying the snow. We haven't had any snow here, only cold temperatures. But now it is 1900UTC and a tropical +2C!!

  2. Hello Adam, thanks for your sympathy. Yes, just before Christmas he will be buried. My thoughts are with his wife and sons. There will be more wind tomorrow and snow again. Tonight temperature will drop to minus 20C. So it's really winter now. 73 Paul.

  3. Sincere condolences on your loss. As we get older it is difficult coping with the passing of family and friends of our own generation. It is important to carry on. The Buddhist philosophy can be a great comfort.
