Sunrise 'n Surprises


I managed to catch the Full Moon early this morning - just before it crept away to sleep after one wild and crazy night.




Took Zucker out for his daily business.  If there is only one thing this dog never grew out of from his time as a puppy - it is the snow.  He loves to eat snowballs!  And this morning - he wouldn’t even wait for me to make one for him.  In his glory!  Like a kid that would sneak into the melting pit room at a Hershey Chocolate Plant - he just started digging in!




Within an hour or so - we had sunshine!  And all was so beautiful!!





Last night was rough.  The snow is hard and it crackles under your steps - leftover signs telling of the crashing temperatures - and roads with ice and slush that had emergency services personnel swamped with calls.





People just refuse to listen - and I never will get that one.  Hey - even me - in my 20’s - I had the brains to understand that a car is like one of the main arteries to your heart.  It gets you to the job you need - which provides that paycheck that you need - which buys the groceries - puts a roof over your head - clothes on your back - and shoes on your feet.

Okay - so there was that one time when it flooded in Texas City and I learned that '65 Ford Mustangs could float - long enough to get to Toddy's house - even with a 325lb. roommate inside - having a panic attack.  Personally - I think that was just angels working - really working hard!





Thank God for the Sun!





Thank God for the Birds!  Hey - Somebody better drop a few Dogwood seeds around here.  You owe me!




Okay - fine.  After we reach up into the 40’s - I’ll deal with the birdbath.  I promise!



Oh…. And I just cannot believe - this!





" So - this is why you came back home!  You cowardly weasel!  You wait until we go to bed - before sneaking in the wife and kids ya' picked up - during your little adventure after running away from home. "

" Yeah - Well.  Okay.  I'll play your song for you.  But you better find a job, Mister - fast!  Now you have to help out with the grocery bill - for sure! "
