From Seats to Thespian Mayors!

Heading to the lake......these lovely seats begging for hot sunshine ...on........well on any lake.  This serves as my second and last post for this week's Thematic Photographic theme please take a seat......

..... Now about this morning........It was a cold and rainy, bumper to bumper commute right in the middle of rush hour......again...so yeah I know the drill.....and LATER to honor the sun coming out this afternoon......I have an interesting little story I heard on the radio .....while stuck in traffic....and yes it has to do with our Saint Paul Mayor!

They call him a "Thespian now....but in truth (poet or not) Saint Paul is lucky to have Mayor Chris Coleman .....they actually aired his delightfully funny speech on the air and it went like this...(and  some of you may remember Erma Bombeck using the beginning).... He begins in a slow, easy voice much like Bill Murray only much happier.....
"Somebody somewhere said that finding a pimple on a wrinkle is like the cruelest joke mother nature can play on you.  But, let me tell you from personal experience it's not.  Worse
yet, is having to declare a snow emergency and a flood emergency on the same day for your city!"
Yes , it did happen, of course this year with our incredible dragged out winter of 2010-2011!

Okay, if you're not laughing, guess you had to be there....and completely going bonkers from the stop and go and stop and go rainy morning commute.....and so to make the gloom disappear one can simply dream of going to the lake.....!

How exciting to have a boat and be able to get out there and enjoy lazy afternoons on the water! Rain and cold here today as well but I'll take this any day over -40 and blizzards! Have a fantastic weekend Karen!
