Howdy furpals....Here it is, almost the middle, of the 1st. month of 2011. What can I say, about this current winter????? It's Going to be another BAD ONE! I'm Positive..... this is the Total Truth! The last 3 winters have Not been a Picnic..... All of them have been pretty tough! No wonder, I NOW PIDDLE on the PATIO!!!! Spent most of my life always going into the hay yard in the winter to potty....I Never wanted to make any extra work for Grandma. Cuz, I was so thrilled to be rescued from abuse...
This winter I've left enough frozen piddle on the patio to make an ice skating ring....A dogster pal, suggested selling tickets to skate! We really didn't think there would be any takers! So, when it warms up ... Gma chips it all off with an Ice Bar. She said, she does this so she won't slip,fall and bust her hiney! I know, she really does it for me....So, I have a clean place to potty.
Day 2 of Quick and Fast warmer temperatures. Made 20 above before the temperature started falling. Snow in the forcast for tonight through Tuesday. We had 3" this morning! The new snow wasn't suppose to arrive until during the night.... They missed that by 12 hrs. It has stopped snowing for now. More coming... We've had more snow in the last 3 winters, than in most of the winters of my life, rolled together! Getting a picture?
Gma was suppose to go to town for a BP check. Tried to do this 2 Fridays in a row. Weather prevented her from going both times. Last week the driveway blew shut and couldn't get out with the car. This week, she was walking out to the car and ready to go. Neighbor swung in with tractor parts for Gpa. She ask, "how are the roads?" Reply, I-94 is good. The county road out here is a total white-out. I couldn't see a thing. I almost hit the snowplow! He is 20 yrs. Gma's, junior.
This was enough for Gma...She turned around and went back into the house. She is monitoring her BP here at home as instructed.
Gma called and cancelled. Gma said, "if, she fought white-out for 10 miles, her BP would be in the twilight zone! Thanks, but no thanks!" It's only slightly, elevated... She still thinks it is elevated due to higher physical pain level. As well as, it is winter, Not OUR season! Some stress with all the equipment breakdowns... Since her BP has been waxing and waning for 20 yrs. due to her chronic pain level. Never has been truly high BP... I bet, if Gma took My BP with that fangled thing: on a bitter,windy,sub-zero day.....Mine would a G-Zillion for sure!!!!! The only thing, that makes me Happy on All those days is: Ear Rubs, Sweet Nothings Gma says to me, grilled Vension, my beef, tiny mini flavored bone biscuits, snuggling into my new velvour bed.... Plus, I Love those homemade Peanutbutter Biscuits.... Gma, can now see a cataract on the other eye. I now have a matching pair... I'm a little hard of hearing, vision a little cloudy and sniffer isn't what it used to be....Aging is for the birds! I still have the Sweetest Nature..I'm Never Crabby at anyone.....How many puppers can say that??????
Another neighbor was here for coffee. He said, he read somewhere,long range... We are suppose to have 10 hard, tough winters... This being number 3, we have 7 to go!!!! Gma said, "if we, have 7 more like the last 3....her and Mazy will be spending them somewhere warmer than North Dakota. Boy! She meant it!" As for me, I THINK the guy who wrote the article is All WET! Since I'm a senior,senior pupper.....don't think, I have to worry about trying to battle 7 more??? I mean REALLY! They can't even predict the weather correctly for 3-4 days at a time... Are weathermen, guys who can't do anything, else????? I could do, weather! I can tell you, how cold it is: by how long, it takes my Piddle to freeze!!! I'm better looking than alot of the weathermen,too!
Since it did warm up ...Gma made me walk around,stretch my leggers and get some fresh air... I wasn't impressed! It is still winter...I did it, to humor the old gal! However, I know fresh grilled vension is waiting in the frige. I better get my nap in before supper.....BTW- I heard on the news this morning 47 of the lower 48 states have SNOW! Only Florida, didn't have any.... and Hawaii of course...Alaska, of course gets snow every winter... What are the odds on that happening, every year??? Just wondering?????
I'm dreaming of Spring wild purple pasture crocuses.....Anyone, want to guess, when they bloom this year?????
Kisses and Hugs, Baby
