    What are you most looking forward when we finally get nice weather?

    Because it will happen. The snow will melt, things will turn green, and the temperature will break 50. For those of you who live in warm areas, shut up, we are all jealous.

    So what will you want to do first when we finally get that lovely weather?

    I will be excited to wear open-toed shoes, open up some windows, and spend a Saturday down at the Farmer's Market.

    Last Friday in KC when it was 85, sat out on a patio at the bar and just enjoyed the company of my fellow clones. Sure was nice.

    When it gets nice here, will likely tidy up the yard and get ready for some landscaping.

    Three things:
    1. My *** not freezing when I get out of bed.
    2. My *** not freezing when I get out of the shower.
    3. My *** not freezing when I start my car.

    Getting up before the sun comes up is a *****

    I want to get out and shoot baskets. The tournament always gets me in the mood to play.

    I was thinking this one this morning as I froze getting out of bed and trying to get ready. I hate the heating system in our apartment.

    FAC at Big Shots..nothing beats chilling on the patio, talking with friends, and maybe getting a game of bags going.

    1. Watching the newborn calves running around on green grass, while I am not wearing a coat, riding the gator, with a beer.
    2. Grilling steaks, while I am not wearing a coat and drinking a beer.
    3. Sitting on the deck drinking a beer, after I spent 4 hours mowing my yard.
    4. Just drinking beer on the deck

    Grilling.

    Yeah, I grill in the winter, but it will be nice to actually enjoy it and not have to dress like I'm starting the Iditarod.

    My buddies and used to love spring on campus. The ladies would break free of their sweater-cocoons and into more form-fitting clothes.

    Being able to throw on a pair of flip flops and be out the door to run an errand. Not having to worry about socks, shoes, coat, gloves, etc.

    Opening the windows of my apartment to let some fresh air in

    Driving with the windows down

    Hopefully plant some flowers this year to display by my door
