OK I got this in my e-mail. I had to clean it up but still pretty funny. True as well. Hope you enjoy.

Dear Diary

Aug. 1
Moved to our new home in Massachusetts. It is so beautiful here. The city is so picturesque. Can hardly wait to see it covered with snow. I LOVE IT HERE!!!

Oct. 14
New England is the most beautiful place on earth. The leaves are turning all different colors. I love the shades of red and orange. Went for a ride through the hills and saw some deer. They are so graceful. Certainly they are the most peaceful animals on earth. This must be paradise. I LOVE IT HERE!

Nov. 11
Deer season will open soon. I can't imagine anyone wanting to kill such an elegant creature. The very symbol of peace and tranquility. Hope it will snow soon. I LOVE IT HERE!

Dec. 2
It snowed last night. Woke up to find everything blanketed in white. It looked like a postcard. Went outside and cleaned snow off the steps and shoveled the driveway. We had a snowball fight today (I won). When the snow-plow came by we had to shovel the driveway again. What a beautiful place. Mother Nature in perfect harmony. I LOVE IT HERE!!!

Dec. 12
More snow last night. I love it. The snowplow did his trick again (that rascal). A winter wonderland. I LOVE IT HERE!

Dec. 19
Snowed again last night. Couldn't get out of the driveway to get to work this time. I'm exhausted from shoveling. @#*%(&* Snowplow!

Dec. 22
More of that white $#!% fell last night. I've got blisters on my hands from shoveling. I think the snowplow hides around the corner and waits until I'm done shoveling. That @$$^*&(!

Dec.25
'White Christmas' my busted @#!. More !@&^%$* snow. If I ever get my hands on that son-of-a-female dog who drives that snowplow, I swear I will castrate the dumb bas^@$#. Don't know why they don't use more salt on this %$#&*($ ice.

Dec. 28
More of the same $#!^ last night. Been inside since Christmas day except for when 'Snowplow Harry' comes by. Can't go anywhere. The car is buried in a mountain of white $#!^. The weatherman says expect another 10 inches of this $#!^ tonight. Do you know how many shovels full of snow 10 inches is?

Jan.1
Happy #^%&*(@ New Year. The weatherman was wrong (AGAIN). We got 34 $!@#(*^ inches of snow this time. At this rate it won't melt until the 4th of July. The snowplow got stuck down the road and $#!^ for brains had the ba!!$ to come to the door and ask to borrow my shovel. I told him I broke 6 shovels already, shoveling out the $#!^ he plowed into my driveway. I broke
the 7th shovel over his %^$!@*& head.

Jan.4
Finally got out of the house today. Went to the store to get food and on the way back a deer ran out in front of the car and I hit the #!~&*&%. Did about $3,000.00 damage to the car. Wish the hunters would have killed them all last November.

May 3.
Took the car to the garage in town today. Would you believe the body is rotting away from all the !@#(^%$ salt they keep dumping all over the roads. It really looks like a piece of $#!^.

May 10.
Moved to North Carolina today. I can't imagine why anyone in their right %^&!@)* mind would want to live in the God forsaken State of Massachusetts.

Thanks Buddy, I'll be remembering you in the summer when I'm up in VT enjoying the cool mountain breezes and you're down there with the 90% humidity sweating like a pig. grin

Just kiddin' I'm really jealous.

Come on up, you can relive the experience!

Pretty cool Ray. Wheeling is great and then you break something, but it's still fun. Nice vehicles BTW.

From someone who just recently moved from his 28-year-life-long home of Southern California to Northeast Pennsylvania, thank you for that. It got a definite chuckle that masked the horrified anxiety of what is to come.

Thats a tough move JC, good luck. I think we have had about 4 1/2 feet of snow so far this year. Way more up north though, over 100 inches in most spots. eek
