Took a nice walk in the sunshine around my neighborhood Monday. I saw some people for the first time in a while. They, like most have been in hibernation. It’s going to that nice again today. Maybe I’ll figure out who the new neighbors are !
I still say the Super Bowl was entertaining, hey the game was tied going into the fourth quarter. What do you wan’t ? One interesting tidbit from the game. Fans in New Orleans essentially boycotted the telecast as the result of the officiating snafu that cost them an appearance. I don’t blame them for being angry. The New Orleans viewership while still significant, was much lower than normal. Many Cajuns are still fuming and it’s not to change anytime soon
