LET IT SNOW........ (yawn!)

While the high country has already seen enough snow this year to open the ski slopes, yesterday brought the first snowfall for my area in the foothills.  Poor Dickidoo was just trying to get home before the road conditions worsened when we passed this statue in town and I went on and on (and on and on!) about what a perfect picture it would make.  Just to shut me up he went around the block and parked nearby so I could get my picture of the day.  I get a chill even now just looking at it.  Brrrrrrrr!

I don't know what those guys ate at elk camp, but Dickidoo's flatulation factory is in rare form.  He's killing us all here at the house.  The only one safe is Henry the Goldfish who is protected from air pollution by the water in his aquarium.  Of course what would he know, he swims around quite happily in his own pee....

"Yawn"

So... having read that word, do you feel the sudden urge to yawn?  I had a big discussion yesterday at work about yawning.  And during the entire conversation, everyone within earshot kept yawning uncontrollably.  My theory is that not only is the actual witnessing of the act of yawning contagious, but even the mere thought or mention of the word can trigger a spontaneous reaction.  Hmmmm, something to think about.... (yaaaaaaaaa-wn)

Nap time I think....

i am glad to hear all is well in hawaii and that life went on as usual.  you had them all figured out didn't you dorn??  love the picture.  makes me shiver, even though it is a balmy 79 degrees here in georgia.

as for yawning, it is a fact that it is the most contageous social disease in the world.  thank God it doesn't have any severe side effects..........ZZZZZZzzzzz.

glad you have elk for winter.........beenie weenie cause severe gastric disturbances.

 OK, lets see if I remember this right.  If  the horse has all 4 feet on the ground the man riding him died in his sleep, right?  Yawn ...........  Love the picture and your story about Elk camp made me think of whiskey, rich food and smelly toots.  Something only a man would wishfully pine for.

Dickidoo was right, but don't tell him I said so!  Beautiful picture!  I missed your snow by one day or so.  We connected through Denver which was cool but dry thankfully.  I think every member of my family has spent the night in Denver due to weather conditions!
