Coldest February Ever

For the first time in the 12 years I've lived in this house the kitchen water pipes have frozen.  The temperature has been as low as 15 below zero with some days that never got above zero.  Thanks to Chris we were able to thaw the pipes without them bursting by opening cupboard under the sink and running a shop heater and hair dryer along with dripping water from the hot water tank for about 24 hours.  Luckily no pipes burst.

Ahh to be in sunny California where Hannah is having the opening day of her softball team, the Red Hots, and her name is Pepper.  Goooo Red Hots!

Just look at all that sunshine, green grass, trees with leaves and kids wearing short sleeves! 

Ashlyn performed in Opera Scenes at Denver School of the Arts.  She was Professor Sprout and is shown with wings at bottom right below.  It was a delightful performance in which various Fairy God Mothers were taking therapy (fairapy) from Professor Sprout for having failed their charges such as Romeo and Juliet who ended up dead because their Fairy Godmother decided to visit sights rather than protect them - we all know how that ended for them.

Amazing singers!

Ashlyn looked fantastic with wings! This week she is singing at the Denver Conference Center with All State choirs  Next weekend she will travel with the family to San Francisco where she will do another college audition!  Good Times!

BRONCOS are down but not out!

The Superbowl last week reminded all of Denver of those losing Super bowls of yore.  Remember we are the AFC champions and we did all spend lots of $$$$ on shirts and stuff.  As Peyton Manning says we will be back!

There was "No Joy in Mudville" - and rumor has it that even staunch Bronco fans turned off the TV before or by the half!  I dare not enter the final score!

SUPERNATURAL:  Sam and Dean visited the Spa and looked really different in their spa-wear.  The show is on hiatus until February 25th due to Olympic coverage. I am counting down until the next episode which will have Dean and Sam in a haunted Bunker.  Should be interesting.  Meanwhile I am trying out alternate shows such as Green Arrow, Blacklist, The Following... but I miss Supernatural!  Luckily there are 8 seasons prior to this 9th season to fall back on.  Love Dean singing "Eye of the Tiger: in the Yellow Fever episode. The music used in Supernatural episodes is another bonus to watching the show.  Creedence Clearwater Revival, Styx, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, Bob Seger, Bob Dylan... to name a few artists featured on the episodes. 

As of right now we need to wait 17 days, 4 hours, 54 minutes and 15 seconds to watch "Captives."  Unless you're in California then it will be 17 days, 6 hours... YIKES!!
