Shock to the System

Wowzers! It got up to nearly 70(F) here today! People have been breaking out the tee shirts and flip flops, the dudes across from me ditched their shirts to blind us all with their pasty torsos, and I finally didn't have to ride in barn boots!

No socks too! Everyone was out enjoying the warm spell.

It really is kind of a shock to the system. I guess that's why ye olde ipod (which I still want to call a Walkman. Does anyone else do that?) coughed up Billy Idol's "Shock to the System" first thing today.


  1. Wow, that is warm! And the cows seem to be enjoying it, too.

    I've never called my iPod a Walkman, but I might start doing that, to throw people off.

  2. "Shock to the System"? Wasn't that from his "cyberpunk" album in the mid-nineties? Totally forgot about that one.

    Wishing it was 70F,

  3. I can't wait till we get out of the freezing zone here. I'm jealous that you had a warm snap like that, and love the donkeys (thay are donkeys, aren't they?), as always!

  4. J. Tuttle - Yep, donkeys! About 27 minis and 2 mammoth jennets. :)

  5. I love the little donkeys : )

    When the weather changes drastically like that in the middle of a season, I usually get really bad headaches, so I prefer a more gradual spring-ing. Last year we had a day of 65F weather, followed by 25F weather again with snow, and I felt like crap.
