Yes, I was cold and my feet got wet, and I have certainly had happier days. On the other hand, I remain largely pro-world-around-me, and I thank all of you for indulging my need to wallow in such thoughts all day.
Special thanks to Bulletin Board, the St. Paul Pioneer Press column where I first learned to regularly pay attention to simple pleasures.
We'll be back tomorrow on a normal schedule, with a podcast and lots of other nifty stuff. Keep tapping, splashing and twirling till then.
