Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013….

YAY, no snow overnight …..

I do love snow but in smaller quantities.

This winter making snow angels is an easy thing to do because we always seem to have fresh snow.

Last week before dipping into double-didgit temperatures – I saw several snowmen (or snow people) around the neighbourhood and the city.

It is hard to believe that it was plus 10 or so last week for a day and above zero for three or so.

Weather is such an amazing thing.

You never quite know what to expect.

Last night I finally got Alvin out for a walk.  It has been a few days.

First off the sidewalks were covered in slush and quite deep  water in spots, then it froze and then it started to snow.

It was about minus 12 or so when we went out which isn’t too bad but we were not far from home when he started to lift one of his paws ….. which they do when they are cold.

I asked him if he wanted to go home but he forged ahead ….. I think he missed our walks.

Usually we go every night and only once or twice have we ever missed more than two nights (since I adopted him in January of 2010 ).

I just remembered it just passed …. his third anniversary with me or his fourth birthday if you go by the number on the first vet report.

I am so sorry my boy.

It has been a great three years minus the first couple of months.

The first couple of months were a huge adjustment period for both of us …. mainly me.

We survived and now we are inseparable…

I know this for sure because he follows me everywhere … even in the bathroom.

But in a true gentleman fashion he sits with his back to me….

Well time to get the show on the road.

I hope that you all have a great day.

Happy Birthday / Anniversary my Alvin….

Looking forward to the next four years …..


Special Hello to:  all those people who love to read …. share the wealth.  Teach someone ….. it is such a wonderful gift …. to be able to read.  We sometimes forget that …..


Always, Carol and my Alvin ……
