It's January 1st of 2012 and it's been a very long time since I've seen such nice warm weather in December and January. The last time I saw weather like this was the year that Jimmy was released by his urologist after his cancer operation to be able to ride on Christmas Day....and that's exactly what he did that morning before all of our children and grandchildren arrived. That was in 1994. Not that we haven't had good weather days in winter since then, but this is a remarkable winter that we are having so far.
Here are pictures taken today before Jimmy set out to ride for a little while, first on his bike, then he will come back and take mine out for a spin. I'm waiting for Brian and his family to arrive in a little while or I would have joined Jimmy for a ride.
Can you believe that they are saying that snow flakes are on their way in a day or two? It's hard to believe on such a pretty day as today, our first day of the year of 2012.
