MORE SNOW, Valentines and a puppy?

It snowed lightly off and on yesterday.  I watched it, thinking about Art's friend and her heart broken family.  The picture of the accident haunts me.  Its horror is contagious and I won't let the kids go anywhere while the killer ice is on the roads.  I don't want to drive on it either.  I have felt its treachery just recently when I myself slid into another truck.  Fortunately no one was injured and the vehicles only sustained minor damage.  I am weary from worry.  Yet as I watch the delicate flakes flutter gently to the earth, sparkling like diamonds only to melt silently against the warmth of my hand I am amazed by its simplistic perfection.  How could anyone fear and dislike something so beautiful?

Oh yeah, because its fricken freezing and I am sick and tired of being cold!  Grrrrrrrr!  Where is the spring?  Where is that groundhog Punxsutawney Phil ?  If I see him I'll shoot his hairy little butt, that stupid lying rodent! 

Is it time to go to Hawaii yet?

Dickidoo surprised me for Valentine's with a long stemmed rose, a gold wrapped bottle of Bacardi, a can of stinky smoked oysters (yummy, love those things, and I have a can all to myself!) ribeye steak for supper and Tirimisu for dessert.  In a strange reversal of roles it was I who gave HIM chocolate, in the form of a giant Hershey Kiss stuffed with even more Hershey kisses. 

Rocky called from her friend's house asking if she could have a puppy.  Nope.  These kids can't even take care of the pet they do have, and he's just a goldfish swimming in a little tank.  (Actually he's back in the pot until his aquarium gets cleaned out.)  Rocky pretty much offered to clean the entire house as a bribe and as tempting as it was, the answer was still no.  I'm just not ready for another Oompa, especially a four legged one that would turn the back yard into a mine field... and its a Rottweiler.  Rottweilers don't make normal doggie doodie, they plant canine WMDs!  (Henry's turds may be 6 inches long but they're less than 1/8th of an inch thick.)  Sorry Rocky, NO PUPPY!

Funny. I just wrote a poem about that groundhog called "Let's Roast The Groudhog" see http://rodneyspoems.blogspot.com/2007/02/lets-roast-groundhog.html.

Another funny thing I also recently wrote a poem about dust bunnies called "The Mother Of All Dust Bunnies" see http://rodneyspoems.blogspot.com/2007/01/mother-of-all-dust-bunnies.html

 Oh how could resist a cute furry puppy?  My sisters plays with a big rock in her yard, think of how much money you would save on toys.  I had a think we buried in yard.  It was a doggy doddie thingy that you put a enzyme in and the the doggy doodie, all gone, no mess.  Now we just trained her to go in the woods.  Spring is just around the corner.  I can almost see it.
 Way to go on your Oompas wins

The state police closed down our roads for the holiday, so we just celebrated with what we had here. I plan on getting some serious chocolate later.
