Could not stand the furnace runnin'...
Lit the stove...
Now 70* and toasty...
Gotta remind myself how much better the coal stove is for heat...
Only 2* warmer on the thermo but such a better kind of heat...

Most of all I do have common sense and a practical application of logic.
Oh, add humor, on the dry side, along with a wee bit 'o sarcasm.

Not cold enough to light the big stove yet, but, chilly enough to need some heat. Got the pellet stove going and it's being watched closely by the cats!!!

Mine too! Although they rotate their "stove watch". :D
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are
neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. ...Such laws make things worse
for the assaulted and better for the assailants, they serve rather to
encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with
greater confidence than an armed man."

- Thomas Jefferson, quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in "On
Crimes and Punishment."
