Throw Back Thursday

HiYa, Ducky here. Happy Thursday. We keep getting snow and we are supposed to get even more tonight and tomorrow. Enuf! When does spring come so I can have open windows?
 
Mum is doing her best to be healthy, she thought she had an icky throat one day but that didn't hang around. She is avoiding peoples as much as she can, although she went to have brekkie with a couple of her furiends who retired from the library.
We have been seeing this guy around a lot the past week, likely looking for some fevver or sqwerl to catch for his lunch. He was sitting on the power wire right near where we sit to look outside. He comes around, all of our fevvers at the feeder leave!

OK, today's flashback, mum dealing with snow. What else is new! Plus Derby getting stuck in the cold box looking for ham!


 Funky Fang Shui Friday from February 8, 2008


Beware of doors closing on tails. The reward might not be worth the pain.
This is me checking out the inside of the big cold box. Mum turned away and the door closed. All you could see what my tail. I am usually looking for ham. Mum always has ham in the big cold box.

The snowstorm is finally over. Mum went outside Wednesday night about 8 PM to use the snow eating monster. By that time the snow had stopped and the wind wasn't so bad. So she cleaned off the snow for the forth time that day. Plus she had to clean one last time on Thursday morning after the plow went by to clear the street. She thinks we got about 13 inches total.

Thursday after she came home from work, she raked the roof of the house, then cleaned up after pulling all of that snow down. Then she shovelled the patio off. Here are pictures of the patio after she cleaned it off. Mum says the top of the piles is about three feet high.
Her little sign on the gate fell off into the snow. She brought in in to be safe. Soon, hopefully, it will be nice enough to put it back on the gate to welcome people to the flowers.
The actual worst of the snow was between me and Bonnie Underfoot and VictorTabbycat in Madtown. Some places got up to 20 inches of snow, lots of people got stuck in their cars on the interstate road.

So where was I during all of this, snoopervising, ummm, well napping and snoopervising.
Ok mum you are finally inside, kick off those wet boots and clothes. Warm up and let's snuggle!

Mum says she wishes she could have a resting weekend, but that isn't going to work. She still has all of the normal stuff to do. Laundry, buying food. Plus Grampie will be coming over on Sunday.

Fevver Friday

Wow - your mum really had to work hard to keep clearing all that snow, Ducky. Just as well you don't have as much this year.

That's some kind of hawk, or falcon perhaps? All of my bird books are at home, and I'm just an amateur birder anyhow.

At least now when it snows, your mum doesn't have to go out in it!

We’re gonna get a lot of snow tomorrow, too. We’re tired of it!!

So much snow! And we seem to be back to our usual don't-get-any mode. Be a good nurse, Ducky, and tell your mom a glob of honey on a cinnamon-coated spoon (no sugar in the cinnamon) works beautifully for keeping sore throats at bay. Ha! Angel Derby, good thing you had a tail to let your mom know you were hunting for the ham!

Derby was lucky he didn't get his tail stuck in the fridge door. Did he find any ham?
