The Weather Outside is Frightful...




Here are pictures of Jesse and her buddies on vacation in CA last summer. I thought you might need warmer photos today.




The national news is reporting some pretty serious weather problems here in OK, but those problems are to the north of us. Our current temps are above freezing. This morning the temp was 37, but it was foggy (Apache fog) with visibility down to a quarter of a mile. It also rained this morning. There is the chance that the temps may get colder later today with more rain, but so far here in southern OK, things are fine. On the other hand, it is cold and wet and pretty miserable out there. Yesterday when I went out to feed the horses, it was a mess. The ice which had covered the truck was melted, but it had been raining off and on making the pasture rather slick. The bucket that I use to feed with was covered in ice as I reached in the bed of the truck to get it. I dropped the bucket on the ground thinking to break the ice off of it. Instead, I splashed yucky, mucky rain water and old feed from the bottom of the bucket all over my face. It was one of those, "that was really stupid - I wish I hadn't done that" moments. The horses were very appreciative of my efforts.


One of the good things about being stuck inside all day, I have been painting (beats the heck out of house-cleaning). I need to work on sending out my paintings as Christmas cards, but only a few of you have sent me your snail-mail addresses. Please send your addresses since I left most of last year's addresses on my old computer. I have lots of little paintings to send.


I am hoping to get out tomorrow and have lunch with GBN1, buy some more horse feed, and do the WalMart thang. Stay warm.

I wish I could get cool! It is sweltering here with the temps in the low 80s and the A/Cs turned off at work. How's about sending some of that cool weather my way?

here's one for ya...

The Prince had filled his diaper with some toxic funk with a 70 year half-life. It must have something to do with that half a gallon on Pomegranet/Cranberry juice he drank yesterday...neat, chilled, but neat. Anyway, his little arse is chapped so i just stuck him in the tub and got the handset down from the shower. I finally had to lay him down to hose down The Crevasse. The sprinkler mode on the handset just wasn't working to my expectations so i switched it to powerwash, oh yeah, this should do it. It took the yick right off, sending shrapnel right into my face. Not one of my defining moments as a dad as i thought, "Boy, THAT was intelligent."
