    One of my mom's high school best friends was diagnosed with ovarian cancer last month. She died on May 7, exactly 2 months shy of 68. My parents went to her funeral yesterday. She was one of the kindest, best people I've ever met. No kids of her own but she was a teacher in the community where she grew up for 43 years, so was well loved.

    I really don't know other than it's over, which is good because I'm tired of seeing it all over the place.

    Yes, but youíve heard of it and heard about it. Endlessly. I think that was Bub's point. (Or is this another effort to make it seem like "muggs" and "Bub" are different people?

    I've never watched the show, bit I was at a GOT-themed Yankee game the other night

    I also know Emilia Clarke wears a blond wig in the show. That's the extent of my knowledge about her involvement within the show.

    No commute today.

    It started snowing at about 6:00 yesterday afternoon. Didn't stop until about 10:00 this morning. One freeway closed; another with hours of delays. Spent over an hour last night trying to get the snow off my tree branches before they all snapped from the weight. Many of my neighbors elected to remain inside. Today, they're bucking branches with chainsaws. It sounded like a war zone last night, with constant cracks as trees shed branches. Heavy snow after the trees bloom is badness. Too much surface area to hold the snow.

    About a foot of wet, HEAVY snow. Not typical Colorado Snow (light and fluffy); this was heart-attack-inducing tonnage.

    Spring. Pfft.

    [Checks calendar.] Yep. May 21st.

    A friend in South Dakota posted a video of it snowing at her house this morning. It's been unusually cool for the desert, too. We've had only a handful of hot days so far. It's been in the 60s and 70s. (I can't complain because i adore cool weather! It's just really unusual.) Cue Drumpf and his band of ignoramuses saying that "global warming" is a hoax.

    I only know Emilia Clarke because she was in some tear jerker chick flick my wife watched. I recall thinking she was the only enjoyable thing in the movie.

    It's Colorado. It will probably be 80 degrees tomorrow. You guys have some weird weather swings.

    I heard on the news that The Dress Barn has closed all it's storefronts and are ceasing operations which surprised me because I didn't know they were still in business.

    I never understood how anyone could think that Dress Barn would be a good name for a woman's clothing store.

    It snowed here on Monday. Supposed to snow several more inches today. Although this winter was great for our lake, which rose over 8 feet, I wish this damn winter would end already.
