The first snow of our ocal season came Wednesday. Dog didn’t really appreciate it. Truthfully I didn’t either..
It didn’t make everything pretty and all, Just dusted the place about a quarter inch and turned ugly on the warm ground. It’s patchy out there now.

Have you been phubbed? To newly-minted word “phubb” means “snubbed by someone you’re with who’d rather look at his/her phone.” Researchers coined the word in the course of a study examining causes of relationship problems. 70% of study participants reported they have been phubbed and it caused conflicts in their relationships.
I’d seen the word used in some missive or the other – didn’t really understand what the heck they were talking about. I have been and I don’t have a cell phone to retaliate. Which isn’t a bad thing. Most of the people one speaks with round about are answering their wife’s calls “just checking”.
Which means, I suppose, that the women find the cell phone’s just another leash of a different length.
