Correspondents

Regardless of what the weather looks like outside, it really is spring. At least, according to the calendar it is.

Monday, March17, was my sister, Pats birthday. Pat came to visit me for a few hours and we enjoyed lunch together. My sister only lives in Schenectady but we dont see each other as much as wed like to.

As I was reading one of my Danielle Steele mysteries I reached a page that reminded me of our daughters and the talks we would have as they grew up. Jim and I agreed that they should be encouraged to talk with either one of us about any subject they wanted to talk about.

On Monday, March 10, it was such a cold wintry day that I decided to spend my time making turkey soup. Tuesday, March 11, wasn’t much better. It was too cold to go anywhere so I did laundry. Wednesday, March 12, was another wintry day with four inches of snow falling through the day. Then, an ice storm struck.

In 1945 Vaughn Monroe recorded, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!  It is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne and it was written in Hollywood, Calif. during one of the hottest days on record.  It became a popular hit, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard music chart the following year.
