First Sunday without football...

Pre-noon, I did my usual listen to the Beatles
But left the radio on to listen to some QUALITY country music on 90.1 KSYM.
Made some lunch.
Did some cleaning.
Turned on the TV, watched some Star Trek on PlutoTV, but it was all first season TNG....oof.
Went to the other Star Trek channel... DS9 Season 1...double oof...

Channel surfing, found an Indiana Jones marathon on ACTION! channel.
Sunny in the 60s after a light freeze Friday-Saturday
Mowed the front yard...heavy wet winter grass, almost too much for my electric mower.

Decided to have a little fire. Collected some fallen branches from the pile, pulled a couple of 6 month old logs from the curing container (an old barrel BBQ that probably gets up to 150F in the summer sun.

Watched some more Indiana Jones as it got dark....
Made some sandwiches from leftover pulled pork and put some jalapeño poppers in the air fryer.

Sun goes down, temps drop to the 50s.
Wrap some old bacon fat in paper towels (3 1 tablespoon scoops) Place them in the spots around the fire pit. Grab my Bluetooth speaker, start some music, light the fire and pop open a Shiner Bock!

Wife joined me, we enjoyed what might be the last cold-ish night of the winter

EDIT: laughed when we remembered that 3 years ago today, Texas was frozen, we had just gotten our power back! And I raised one up for those Texans who did not make it thru the freeze!

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

There was always the NBA All-Star exhibition. I can't call it a game since that would imply that someone played defense. With a score of 211-186, that didn't happen. The NFL figured out that players weren't going to play, so just went to fun. The NBA should just play a game of Horse and call it good.

I've never seen a minute of any NBA all-star game, so I had to go look at the history when I saw this score. First time to break 200, but the scores have been silly high pretty much the entire time it's existed. [www.nbcnewyork.com]

In Minnesota we are blessed to have both the boys and girls state High School hockey tournaments in late February to early March to look forward to after the pro football season ends. It’s a big deal because the skill level is very high - probably comparable to High School football in Texas and elsewhere.
