The Big Thaw


Boy, that took awhile! We were snowed/iced in for five days, but it's pretty much gone now and it's a beautiful, sunny, warm day out there today. I took the dogs out this morning in my bare feet, which was nice because mud washes off of bare feet much easier than shoes.

Super Bowl Sunday came along just as we were getting unstuck from the ice, so we headed over to Wal Mart for snack foods and ended up with more food than we could eat ... and a puppy.

She's a cardboard box puppy, courtesy of a homeless girl at a stoplight ... a suspiciously brindle mixed breed of indeterminate parentage, but this being Southern Illinois, it's a sure bet there's some pit bull in there, so we've named her Pickle.

That's right, we have five cats, seven ducks and three dogs. Does this officially qualify us for "crazy old lesbians in the woods" status? I think it does. Our Biggest Fan over on AOL thinks it does ... lol.

We've been spending too much time on Facebook lately and not enough time on the blog, but since things tend to go in cycles, I suspect this is also just a phase. In the meantime, we're playing with Pickle and watching out the windows for signs of actual Spring and not just this thing the weather does where it teases us in February and then lets loose with another blast of "fuck you, it's winter, bitches!"

Pickles is adorable and lucky to have such fine humans to care for her :)

Not "crazy old lesbians in the woods" Just "crazy lesbians in the woods". I envy you all the animals - and Pickles is beyond cute - a great argument for lots and lots of animals.

I want to go to Wal-mart and come home with a puppy. Unfortunately SM isn't so keen on the idea at them moment.

Welcome to the family Pickles. I know you're gonna love it there.

That is probably the best thing you ever brought home from Wal-mart. What a cute dog. Pickle is a dill of a name too. (sorry I can't help it)

Thanks, Cedar ... we relish her. : )

Kwach, the only thing that could make this better is if this was a weiner dog, we could just keep going and going with this. Risley

I wish I had a clever pun to keep the hot dog story going, but I don't.

You have got to make an effort at Blogging more then once a month or so. I am sick, I need entertaining or I will fall off the earth. You are not keeping up your end of our friendship agreement.

Just wanted you to know how I feel. Both of you.
