The winter ice has been trying to kill me all winter long and last week was vengeance week. I’ve decided to let the few remaining patches, now no longer in a position to reach out and throw me to the ground, to slowly dissolve into the nothingness they so richly deserve. Their pathetic wailing does pleasure me so.
Hey, Michigan State won. Sorry, I can’t think of anything to say. The Feesh are the Feesh.

The Attack Of The Winter Gods
The winter Gods sent down their ice demons to coat all walks and clog all gutters immediately before deploying the main body of their snow attack. They then kidnapped the high March sun to transform their infantry of snow malevolently waiting above the ice demon possessed gutters into dripping water passing though the vile 20 degree air to become ice demons upon the back steps. “Cross over us, cross over us”, they called to me each day and night “and you will be warm”. Yes, warm in bed with a broken hip, waiting for pneumonia to come and shut down what remains of a respiratory system already paying the price of a half century of abuse.
Ooh, Goldy hit three dongs. Trout was Trout. 13 Innings!

Vengeance – A Dish Best Served Thawed
Though the ice demons did lunge at me over and over, they were only able to bruise a rib, the remnants of whose pain I now savor. The ice demons of the last week who wished to ooze upon my back walk were cast a foul by 48 hours of continuous above freezing temperatures, and by the chopping, prying and cutting of my steel shovel. And by the avenging rays of the sun. I did hurl them upon the sun warmed hot plate of my sun soaked back walk and reveled in their screams as their crystal sinews dissolved and then wafted up into rays of the merciless sun.
If you try to kill the king and fail, he will stand above you.

Anyhow, I gotta go and try get Walmart over with before the Twins game starts. Don’t let me forget the cheap chocolate ice cream.
