Thanks Saturday

Some people hate leftovers. We tend to plan our week around them, letting the flavors meld and deepen.

A scurry of Big Ten football matchups. Michigan at Ohio State. They were trading touchdowns until Ohio State went on a tear. Michigan State, on the other hand, was beating Penn State.

Around 8pm in the evening, it looked dark outside. That's not as dumb a sounding statement as it seems. The night before the carriage by the garage lit up the snow across the front yard. This evening? A lot of the snow was gone. Hence dark. Mrs. Dr. Phil reported it was 45°F and the stiff wind was drying off the yard. At 1:36am, it was now 51°F and even more melting in more wind. Go figure.
