A view of my world in Central Illinois and places we go.

The Thrilla’ in Manila – Part Deux

Things are getting kind of crazy around here with this winter weather we’re having. Today we had “thundersnow” – snowing with lightning and thunder at the same time! Followed by freezing rain and sleet. And more snow. Tomorrow, the weather prediction is for sunny and 45 degrees. Do I shovel or let it melt? I chose the former with the hope that the less the sun has to melt, the faster we may see dry pavement. In the mean time, expect a mud hole for a back yard.

The “boys”, Finn and Bailie, are pretty much going stir crazy as well. For two active goldens, this can mean havoc in the house. [Bailie turned 1 year old today, so he’s totally jazzed.] Anyhow, at some point during all this craziness, I got the dog signal for needing to go, as in go outside to do their doggie business. Once the doggie business is completed, the boys often engage in other activities, such as rock ’em, sock ’em, roll in the snow dog play fight. I snuck out and chronicled the latest event.

Here is the setting, a snowy back yard:

    In Come to dad part I Bailie looks like a rabbit!!!  He’s so cute and on his birthday.  Happy Birthday Bailie!  And Finn is so tolerant.  Good boy!

    Yes, we got another 4-5 inches of snow today.  It came down so hard it was almost humorous.  The only good thing is that a neighbor came by with his GIANT snowblower and we are dug out…unfortunately, it continued to snow some after that, so I’m not sure what’s left.  I just don’t care!

    Jan has an early am eye doc appointment and tomorrow is also garbage pickup which requires effort on our part…especially since there’s no place to go with everything.  Oh well, Spring is 31 days away (somewhere!).

  3. Luckily, they do not get quite this crazy in the house and save it for outside! Thanks for your comments, it is good to know someone is seeing this besides me!! And the sun is out and melting is occurring as I write this.
