There's a hell of a lot of us Canucks who at one time thought and bled Packer Green and Yellow to us America's Team was the Packers. They were never as flamboyant or show as the Cowboys but just better at everything that was good.

Dennis when you refer to "at one time" I would think of the Lombardi years. That coach and his teams were definitely great. Now I don't know about flamboyant, but for us, coach Landry and the Staubach, Danny White era were all that was good too. Then Jimmy comes along and with Troy and Emmit and Micheal, we had another good run. I will agree if there is flamboyance in the organization it resides with Jerry. He hasn't been the most popular owner even in Texas. But he is starting to get out of the way and let the coaches coach and draft ie. Not takin Johnny Football (thank goodness) in the draft. Folks in these parts including yours truly bleed blue and silver and we are starving for a return to glory. This years team was a surprise to most who didn't pick the boys to go more than 8-8 at best and that was a stretch. But, when we got on a roll and got thru December without a loss, our fire was quickly re-kindled only to be snuffed out by a very questionable call at best.

I don't dispute Aaron Rogers is arguably the best quarterback in the NFL. But the Pack this year is nowhere near the caliber team of some of those past Packers teams IMHO. I know there are every bit as many die hard cheese heads as we have cowboy fans at home. But again, on the road the blue and silver in opponents stadiums are more prevalent than you see anywhere else in the league again IMHO.

Welcome home, Carl! Nine degrees ... I remember Nine degrees, and well below that too, as most on the tundra do. Would love to have had your toasty floors!

Gooood moooornin, Muteys! It's clearly too early for chitchat, but I'm too wide awake for sleep. That won't last.

It only took an hour of line dance class yesterday to put me into deep and early sleep. All together now: "Out of shape!" You betcha! Good sleeping, though.

So is it a walk or a bike ride this morning? Gotta work off that Baked Brie. You know: the one with pecans, brown sugar and Kahlua. Good even cold in the morning. Hafta try these recipes out before springing them on others, doncha know. (And it's GF, too, Dave.)

Have a superior day, y'all. The rainbow continues to beckon.

Poor Boko and Mac! Dragged from the sunshine back to the freezer. Oh the humanity! Some day their Dad will mutate away from w#¥k and give them the life they truly deserve.

Stay warm Carl and let us know when you can escape the frigid north again. We need to plan a mini-C with Sue, Martin, Papaw Steve and Mary Ann.

Good morning Sue and all that ride the rainbow. A cool breeze this morning and 61 degrees with a high today in the low 80s. Should be nice and then we get a little cool spell for a few days in the high 50 and 60s with a couplla rain showers in the forecast. All good in the mutanthood!

Anyone else up and about before gettin the game fixins and faces on? Ring in and if you're lurking and on the fence about becoming a mutant or attending our GC 1.2 Redux at Catherine's Landing in April - enter and sign in please. Tell us what your RV doesn't have and you don't miss - and declare the Journey is the Destination. You can be the next to ride the rainbow with this fine group of mutants!

Have a great journey!

Because I tend to get sleepy behind the wheel, I hardly trust myself to attempt long distances, and Martin comes south mostly to hibernate. Long drives just don't appeal to him in the winter. (Cue sympathetic music &#128537

Anybody closer to our pharr, pharr south FL location in Naples? (Yet another reason to go west next season!)

I'm already missing things and haven't been here 24 hours - like going for a morning bike ride, ugh, not here!

One little birdie is kinda happy to be back though, Boko gets to fly around in the bird room as she's never kept caged (has one, door is always open). Mac is probably not as happy as he had a great view of activity all day long with folks walking by and such, here he gets to look at the white snow in the yard, boring!

I'll figure something out, just need to catch up on a couple of things and after donating my hair, let folks see my new do

Did you ever get inland on CP to look at O'Neil CG? If'n you get to the Gulf Coast and around Texas City, holler. We'll show you where the CG Station is.
All those digraphs are going to confuse Herb and some others.
