On the front porch but NOT today

By

Good Saturday morning everyone-This chilly snowy morning reminds me of the song "The weather outside is frightful but the fire is so delightful" Well in my case the electric heater is anyways. Even if I wanted to go anywhere I wouldn't be able to because of all the heavy snow and our secondary roads aren't plowed yet. The is much more on the way and it is supposed to be windy and only high of 26* today.

It is due to be over by around 6 am tomorrow and then I begin the dig out process. Not looking forward to it but you do what you have to do. Yesterday was spent doing laundry after my trip and getting my internet back online and fixing meals for Mom as there were no aides yesterday and might not be on Mon either.

Today will be unpacking and resting in preparation for the not so fun snow clean out tomorrow. Of course I will be taking care of my birdies as they aren't liking this stuff either. Have a great day everyone. I will leave you with this "funny" I received from a friend.

On  the first day, God created the dog and said, sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this I will give you a life span of twenty years.
 
The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten  years and I'll give you back the other  ten?"  And  God said that it was good.
 
 
On the second day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain  people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a  twenty-year life span." The  monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long  time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?" And  God again said that it was good.
 
On  the third day, God created the cow and said, "You must go into the  field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years." The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other  forty?" And God agreed it was good.
 
On the fourth day, God created humans and said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years." But the human said, "Only twenty years? Could
you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?" "Okay," said God, "You asked for it."
 
So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For
the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family.  For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.  Life has now been explained to you.
 
There  is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service. If  you are looking for me I will be on the front porch. 
 
NOT today though because of all the snow and cold temps.

Jon Kolsky -I thought it was funny enough to share and definitely a thread of accuracy. Things will get more back to normal after tomorrow and after the snow melts. A fair amount has already but it is still a bit tricky walking.

I'm glad you are back, but hope you thaw out soon. It was a busy weekend for me with the football game and Mike being here. We got a lot of work done at the house. 

The joke is great. I'll be sharing it. Thanks for sharing it with me.

Hi Debbie Laity -It is getting warmer and by the weekend it is due to be in the 60's so that should get rid of most all the snow. Glad you had a great weekend. Sounds like a good one for you. Glad you enjoyed the joke and you are welcome.

Hi Sharon - I think you got more snow than we did.  Well at least now we are all cleaned up and some of it is melting.

Good Monday morning Sharon Lee -

This has been the craziest winter weather.  It's like spring in our area with trees, roses and other flowers popping up from their short lived slumber.

I do like this joke. 

How's things going. It's busy here. We are seeing a lot of walk in traffic at the office. 

Have a wonderful weekend.
