Well, thankfully, the sun came out today.  I was dangerously close to
growing mold on my body.  I told my husband that even a shot of Patron
gold was not enough to make me smile last night.  The weather had been
bringing EVERYBODY down around here.  Rain, rain, rain, cold, cold,
cold.  NO sunshine to be found anywhere.  Can't get outside, ground is
saturated.  Can't mow the yard or pastures.  My dogs don't even want
to go outside to go to the bathroom, now THAT is bad.
