HITTING THE SLOPES

Even here in Missouri,
there's enough snow
(some man-made)
to offer snow boarding fun.

It's not Aspen, Vail or Taos,
but it's a great way for dad
  to show the fine points
of "boarding" to the
  next generation.

Fresh powder fell yesterday
on the slopes at
Hidden Valley Ski Area,
(Wildwood, Missouri.)

HOW QUICKLY 
THE WEATHER TURNS

Our recent balmy sunny days
(especially for Mardi Gras weekend)
have taken a winter turn.

Freezing cold temperatures,
blinding blistery winds,
and snowy skies.

Time to pull out the sweaters and scarves.
Old man winter has returned.

Brrrrrrrrr!

SUPER BOWL 50
HIGHLIGHTS

Even if you don't follow football*
*(the U.S. kind) 
 the 50th SuperBowl was full
of spectacular entertainment.

Lady Gaga nailed the National Anthem
(what a performance!)

Some of the best (and most expensive)
TV commercials were worth watching.

My favorites . . .
"Meet The Ketchups",
100 weiner dogs running towards
giante Heinz ketchup and mustard bottles.
and
Dogs dressed up like humans
so they can buy Doritos tortilla chips.

And an unbelievable halftime show
featuring Beyonce, Cold Play and Bruno Marz,
with the crowd holding cards that said
"BELIEVE IN LOVE."

And oh yeah,
Peyton Manning led his
Denver Broncos over the Carolina Panthers. 
(Pretty good for a 40-year-old NFL quarterback.)
