Sometimes, it's just plain hard to get together for parties and celebrations during what is usually the coldest month of the year for this part of Texas.
Add some rain to the cold, and you get a really messy weekend just as this one has turned out. So the family get-together we were going to have at the ranch ended up being changed to a sub sandwich buffet at home, to be served during the Dallas Cowboys/Green Bay Packers playoff game.
You see, all of the January birthdays, except for 2, belong to Cowboy fans who think they might expire if they don't get to see the game. *LOL* That's okay. I find sports fanatics vastly amusing.
Therefore, today's quote is a 3-fer: one for January, one for birthday, and one for football fans. That's American football, of course.
"January brings the snow, makes our feet and fingers glow." - Poet Sara Coleridge
"They say that age is all in your mind. The trick is keeping it from creeping down into your body." ~ Unknown (And may I say, "OMG! That's so true.")
"Football teaches you hard work. It takes a lot of unspectacular preparation to have spectacular results in both business and football." ~ former Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach (Wow. That sounds just like the writing business.)
If you have a January birthday, take heart. You can always have a delayed celebration after the spring thaw. As for football, don't worry. There will be a new season next year. Oh, and that cold weather? I refer again to the aforementioned spring thaw.
