Jan. 19, 2010-Had A Little Snow Today





After all last weekend the snow had just about melted away and things were looking dirty and dull. So I was glad to see some snow falling this morning. It was pretty again! I love the snow falling. I am kind of wishing we'd get a foot of snow..Ha! As long as I had enough supplies and could stay inside, I'd love it! I do love winter. And I especially like snow storms. When I was younger I used to have a lot of fun during snow storms. It seemed like everyone wanted to go out drinking during storms. And when I had my bar it was always a fun time. Even trying to get home was kind of fun after I closed up. I lived 7 miles from my bar and some nights I'd be following someone else's tracks just to make it home.. I always did all through those 17 years. Just one time I got stuck right at my driveway and had to shovel all that snow before I could park the car. I lived in a mobile home park so my driveway was not that large. But still a lot of snow to shovel at 4 am. Ha!
I only got a few photos of the squirrel today and a few of one of the Gray foxes tonight. I still have not spotted my crippled fox since Dec. 31st. But I'm sure I will one of these nights. Just have to get lucky and be looking at the right time.

Snow is one of the greatest things about winter. It brightens everything up so well. I've noticed that squirrels really seem to like playing in the snow. The foxes look well-insulated for snow too.

I heard the squirrels and the foxes telling their stories as well. They do like snows like you.

Beautiful pics of the Deer on your header and on the previous posts. Lovely ones of all your snow creatures too. Our snow has gone at last but it is colder again today and some have had more snow.

Hi again Ginny, just popped back from your 'One Day At A Time...' blog to say it seems to be empty, maybe it is something to do with my computer but I thought I would mention it.

Yes, Ratty. The squirrels seem to enjoy the snow. This is their mating time also and they are constantly chasing the females around.
If only they could talk Rain..Ha!
Thanks for taking the time to visit Jan. I know it's hard for you. I think the page just takes more time to load since I added the new background.
Take care and thanks for the comments you all!!

Ha! Ha! Those were the good old days! I haven't drank a drop since I got out of my bar in 1996. And I didn't drink for five years straight back then. My customers used to call me a party pooper. And I'd always give up drinking from Jan. 1st till July 1st just to give my body a break each year. Never knowing I was ruining it all along..LOL Then sweets became my worst habit. Now I had to give those up if I want to keep this cancer at bay. Life is sure a struggle at times.. but we have to keep our sense of humor.
