Heavens To Murgatroyd! – 3-Mar-2021


Is it really a Heavens To Murgatroyd moment?

At some point this week, I was watching a cable news program that reported that the American male sperm count was drastically down and continuing to fall.

That’s not to be confused with the actual rocket launchers being out of commission.

The rocket launchers’ gas was rapidly declining to from regular to unleaded, if you get my driftwood.

And of course, the person on television immediately drew the conclusion that the end of the human race was coming directly at us at 1000mph.


We’ve all heard of climate change.

Yes, you have heard of it, even if you’re not buying what they’re selling.

Whether you believe that the planet is getting warmer or not, I’d just like to say how much I am enjoying this incredibly mild winter.

As in, I’d like to tongue kiss whoever arranged this mild winter for days.

For the past three days, it’s been so nice outside that I’ve been able to take my pups to the park and walk for a few miles each day.

Remember that You’ve Got 30 Minutes post from about a week ago?

I’m doing it, baby!

I’m in North Dakota, where the winters are brutal and have broken strong, capable women and men.

But for the last few days, it’s been GORGEOUS weather here.

Today, it was 61° and not a cloud in the sky.

Tonight, the weatherman predicted a possible 70° for Saturday!

That will set some records, for sure.

It’s HUGE NEWS in this part of the country.

I’m frickin’ elated!

And it’s definitely not a Heavens to Murgatroyd moment.


Is this year’s mild winter due to cow farts, private jets and 2 billion more people on the planet then there were 40 years ago?

How would I know?

What I do know is that when the sunny, warm, spring-like days arrive during the first week of March, I thank God for them, and I don’t question these rare gifts.

Plus, I’m a beef and potatoes kind of girl.

Always have been.

No bean-based beef for me, thank you very much.

You do what’s best for you.

And if you’re east of North Dakota, and the weather in your neck of the woods is nice in the upcoming week, consider that my personal gift to all of you.

My point here really is pretty simple, Snagglepuss…

Whether it’s the end of the human race through a declining sperm count or climate change, there will always be doomsday folks with doomsday prophecies.

I’d rather go with a stupidly-simple, positive philosophy:


More tomorrow,


Restart. Refocus. Reinvent.
