Muddy Monday

The anchorman at News Channel 8 called Monday an "Odd January Day". We had a flood watch, high wind warnings, and thunderstorm watches. At the time it was 55 degrees and POURING. In Connecticut! In January! He said the birds were having trouble flying on the shoreline. (Is that even possible??). Here on Huckleberry Hill, the road looked quite drenched and I was glad I could get the shot without leaving the doorway.

His Royal Highness tried to convince Pawpa that his morning constitutional should be deferred. Ultimately, he was unsuccessful due to the fact that he weighs 18 pounds and Pawpa .. um .. somewhat more. When he was .. ahem .. lovingly persuaded to venture farther than the doorway, he consented to proceed. Upon his return from a very abbreviated visit to the great outdoors, King Gizmo returned to his favorite position in the living room ... sleeping on the weekly circular for Home Depot.

Before he completely zoned out, however, he asked me to say "Welcome" to Mistaya's M.O.M. and twinkietinydog who came over to visit from Jack's blog. We are going to stop over to see you two too!

Giz you all have had some foul weather for the last 9 months....whew I hope spring is better.
As for being lovingly pushed out the door.....Boy I was sorry to hear you were all wet but glad to know you had
the Home Depot circular to sit on while drying.

Giz didn't want to mess upMom's floor with muddy paws...
See any good deals at HD this week?

Billy sure hate the rain too! Are you perhaps going to build a doghouse Giz! Hence the HD circular?

Would you have him look for some bathroom fixtures for my bathroom remodel while he's on the Home Depot circular?

Also, would you have him send me some money for my bathroom remodel as well? :)

We reckon the weather has gone completely mad this year.
We hope it gets better for Spring!
Our computer has also gone mad or perhaps blogger - our comments box keeps disappearing - we are on our third attempt.

Weather gonne nuts all over the world! King Gizmo's got the right idea! Since it's raining here, I'll do like Gizzzzzzzzy does: zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Be careful, Gizzy, if you visit any time soon, you'll find katz on my blog. I warned you.
