The temperature on this beautifully gray Sunday is a chilly 49˚. Dad’s countenance is also overcast due to the Dallas Cowboys trailing the Eagles 17-3 at half-time. At first, I thought that Yahoo! Weather had scrambled the temperatures because it’s indicating 55˚ in both Hugo and Denison. A quick call to Mom confirmed the surprisingly warmer Oklahoma temperature.
Dad delights in warmth of all kinds, and he’s pleased with this new trick of keeping his feet “warm as toast” (in Grandmother Rachel-speak) by utilizing a dish towel, a gallon plastic bag, and the microwave. A microwaved-wet-dish-towel, stuffed in plastic bag, keeps Dad’s feet comfortably warm for quite a while. However, it’s going to be impossible to find comfort for Dad if the Cowboys don’t pull ahead of the Eagles in the next half.
Philadelphia is boasting a balmy 65˚. Wow, Katy really is the coolest!
