Back on the trail 

Well, it warmed up yesterday, so we decided to go for a walk back up on the mountain.  I say we, when in fact, I usually have very little say in such decisions.  It's more of a "Jack, I'm going to go riding in the car.  Do you want to go?" type of thing.  Sometimes we go get something to eat, so I usually decide that riding in the car with the possibility of getting something to eat is better than staying at home with NO possibility of getting anything to eat.  Especially if the refrigerator door is closed.  Which, unfortunately, it wasn't when we went riding.  When we got back home, we notice that the door had been left open the whole time.  Usually, that would have been a problem, but since there wasn't anything in there but Pepsi and water, I don't think it made much difference.

But it was a nice outing anyway!

The one where I am a snowman critic: 

Sorry I have been gone so long.
Evidently the tall guy has something
called a 
and, boy does it make him crabby.

Fortunately, he says it doesn't bother
him much during the day,
so we can go out on our walks.
This picture was taken on one of our walks
last week when we still had snow.
We have no snow now.
We are snow-less.

The tall guy went to the
human veterinarian today
and got some stuff to
help him breathe better.
So hopefully, he won't
be up coughing all night
because of the drains.
I told him that if he was having
problems with his drains,
he should call a plumber,
but he did not think that was very funny.

I told you he was crabby!

I got the snow!!

Well, not a lot, but enough to play in.

And enough to make the tall guy tell me
not to run so fast
because I'm about to make him fall down 
and break his neck.

(He wasn't really about to fall down and break his neck.
A leg or a hip, maybe, but not his neck.
I think you need at least 8 inches of snow
to qualify as neck breaking.)

We're supposed to get some more tomorrow.
We'll see.

Snow-bound Jack,
signing off for now!

February 4, 2014

We would walk 500 miles... 

and we would walk 500 more!

We have been doing a lot of walks since we moved.
Evidently the tall guy likes to walk more when it's not hot.

However, I found out that he does not like to 
walk when it is 10 little circles outside
and the wind is blowing.

Or if it's raining.

Or when he's trying to watch Downton Abbey.

Or when he's writing music.

maybe we're not going on as many walks
as we could!

I'll have to get back to you.
