I am waiting for an ice storm to be coming through the area. We've been watching the weather reports. By now Chicago has already been hit. From what I see, the Terre Haute gang will be spared this time. WIXYjr should be driving home while it's occurring.
If we get some ice hanging on the trees the WIXYcam will be there to bring you the latest.
I've been in a blue funk today, so I decided to go to the Goodwill and look around. I have to do this once in awhile in order to maintain my standing as white trash. While I was there I found two books in real good condition that I think I would give my younger brother for Christmas. My brother has been wheelchair bound for the past 20 years and now resides in a nursing home. Since both my parents are deceased, my wife and I have guardianship over him. He likes sports and can discuss statistics with anybody, although he is mildly retarded.
The books were "The Stone Cold Truth," by Stone Cold Steve Austin and "Mankind-Have a Nice Day," by Mick Foley. Both books are in like new condition and if new, would cost together $52.00. I bought them for $2.00 a piece. My brother will appreciate them regardless, maybe even more if I tell him, which I won't. I have told my wife if Ricky was normal, he would be independently wealthy because he's so tight with his own money.
Oh, we will buy him some other gifts, probably from the Evil Big Box Store(tm).
Update: My friend from that state up north, Jessica, had posted this past Monday in her blog, Five Pines about finding some books in an antique mall. The post is titled "I Found a Treasure".
