Lost Weekend

Sometimes things just can’t happen.

The weather is too cold to do much other than what has to be done. There’s too much ice to ride safely. The Pats screw up and there no game to look forward to. (At least the mouthy Jets lost.) Your daughter hasn’t spoken to you in two weeks and you miss the grand kids.

So you sit and play insipid, vacuous video games most of the day while watching crime re-enactment TV shows.

This morning Jigs didn’t even want to play. He actually ran away from me when I tried to halter him.

The cold has been horrible and the snow is chest deep in some places. I’m sure he’s fed up too. Yesterday he was actually antsy on the cross ties. Not typical Jigs behavior.

I went back to the barn this afternoon and we hung out for a bit. No pressure; no work. Much better than video games.

But damn, it’s cold. Spring will come. Not soon enough.
