Topic #1 Snow
Yes, we got more snow yesterday! I was so disappointed that I didn't even want to go outside.
Topic #2 Names
I'm unclear on what point Pee-Wee was attempting to make with his little rant on Sunday. After all A$%hole is clearly a term of endearment since I get called that much more than him! Sometimes Momma calls me a Slimy F&*$ing Thing as in the sentence "Get away from me you Slimy F&*$ing Thing" most frequently uttered after I have refreshed my large and thirsty self from the water bowl.
This term of endearment means "come over here and give me some love." To which I am happy to comply by putting my face as close to Momma as possible until she squeals with delight, "EW EW EW!" For some reason, she enjoys these attentions even more when she is wearing the "dry clean only" clothes. Go figure.
Topic #3 Barn and Tools
Master went upstairs in the barn to see if there was anything left, but he said most of the stuff up there was melted. You can sort of see him under the peak of the roof, but there is a smudge on the camera lens. Cleaning the camera lens has been added to "the list" which means it will actually happen sometime in 2012.
To cheer himself up, Master went tool shopping. You tool geek moms and dads will like this.
He got a whole bag full of hand tools.
Plus a manly new tool belt.
And best of all, a DeWalt fun pack!
Topic #4 Ticks
Consider this Mango's Public Service Announcement to all doggies in Master Chew Sits. Time to pull out the Frontline.
The icky tickies have already emerged.
Topic #5 Spring Fever
Sunday was pretty warm and most of the snow melted. Our estate still harbored a little ice river on the shady side.
But the usual bitey face part of the yard was all clear and to be honest, I was feeling a little giddy from the warm weather.
Yes, friends, the Mango was actually RUNNING! And the squirt was levitating!
Notice the most advanced leg placement in this photo! I am ready to dance with the stars!
Pee-wee was so energized that he decided to forgo the observation deck stairs to practice his labraleaps. Hmmm... somebody's butt is looking a bit broad...
Check out my strange googly eye. Momma says I am like a great white shark whose eyes roll back into his head as he sinks his teeth into his hapless prey (you can bigify to see the full effect).
Mango Man, Oh yeah!
P.S. Topic #6 TV Mystery
We believe we have isolated the source of the TV problem to a defective outlet box. Such a fuss.
