IT WAS JUST ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE LITTLE JELLEYBEAN BOOSTS

 A FROZEN CREEK CAPTURES THE BLUE SKY COLOR OF THE DAY
Sunshine:)))))  If I didn't say another thing, that one word would aptly describe the first half of our day.  With sunshine lending its uplifting rays to our picturesque countryside it made for a much nicer Jeep ride for Pheebs and I and anyone else out and about today.  Most folks here in the northern latitudes are just so sick of one freezing cold grey day after another.  But, we must persevere and be patient.  Warmer sunny days will hopefully soon be coming our way and I do see a slight rising of temperatures next week in the 14-day forecast.

 HEADING SOUTH OVER THE BAILEY BRIDGE THIS MORNING I WAS GLAD TO SEE THE NEW BRIDGE'S FIRST ARCH SOLIDLY IN PLACE
 COUNTRY ROADS WERE IN GOOD SHAPE
 MY FOCUS THIS MORNING WAS ON THE COLOR BLUE:))

Moved a little snow around this afternoon and re-set all the outside light timers after a power hiccup a couple days ago.  And of course, the bird feeders are always needing re-stocking.

 ALL THIS SNOW HAS BEEN KEEPING ME BUSY THIS WINTER
 FRONT YARD PATH TO THE ROAD
 SIDE YARD PATH TO THE ROAD
 BACK YARD PATH TO OUR BURNING BARREL
 OUTSIDE CHAIRS WAIT FOR THE NEXT BACKYARD CAMPFIRE
Started up 'Scooter' our little Class C Motorhome.  When it had warmed up enough, Pheebs and I went and sat inside for a few minutes.  Wasn't long and we had ourselves a whole host of RV jellybean dreams bouncing around in our heads.  It was another one of those little psychological boosts one needs at this time of year if one is stuck at home and not able to travel anywhere.  With sunshine beaming in Scooter's side window adding colorful rainbows to our RV dreams we did indeed have ourselves a moment:))

 'OH DAD CAN WE PLEASE GO RVING SOON'
 THIS IS NOT THE USUAL OUTSIDE VIEW WE HAVE BEEN ACCUSTOMED TO OVER OUR RVING YEARS

 SCOOTER'S READY TO GO, SHE JUST NEEDS A WARM DESTINATION
 'I'M READY TO ROLL DAD'

GROANER'S CORNER:((  Children were called upon a classroom to make sentences with words chosen by the teacher. The teacher smiled when Jack, a slow learner, raised his hand to participate during the challenge of making a sentence with the words "Defeat," "Defense," "Deduct," and "Detail."  Jack stood thinking for a while, all eyes focused on him while his classmates awaited his reply. Smiling, he then proudly shouted out, "Defeat of deduct went over defense before detail."

A man was brought to a hospital with heavily fractured bones. The doctor in the intensive care unit asks him, "Are you married?"  "No, I've been run over by a truck."

  2. What great photos of Pheebs. She is such an expressive dog. As for your temps warming, congratulations. Down here in central Tx, we're going to get colder and colder and colder. Low of 9 degrees F one night, and a high of 19 on George Washington's day next Monday. Sheesh. And two episdoes of possible snow. Nello, Canada.

  5. My husband's aunt and uncle lived in Washington.....lots of rain. Some days they would spend time in their motorhome, just to see something different.

  7. Oh my, you have so much snow. I do really love that first photo. It wold be great to frame or for someone to paint.I am so over this cold weather. At this point we might be traveling in the RV over the summer as I have a feeling we won't be heading to Mexico this winter. But I am keep positive thoughts.
