The only other thing happening around MY house is this overwhelming cold and the snow we got – I couldn’t believe we got a “decent sized” snow but Mom reminds me all the time that one of the BIGGEST snows we’ve had was near the end of March five years ago so SNOW HAPPENS!   Just ask everyone living up north about that………….!   They’re STILL digging out.   We have been lucky.  Dad loves playing with his snowthrower thank heavens.


Dad loves playing in the snow!

Mom has been putting bird food out like mad too………….everything on legs has visited!   Birds, squirrels, skunks, deer, we even saw some BIG hawks on the SMALL bird feeders.    When the weather is like this, everything needs FOOD for energy to do what they do.   Imagine how much energy it takes to FLY!

Have you pawticipated in one of Bacon/Fozziemum’s “Shopping Around The World” blog hops?   It’s really fun to see what everyone around the world pays for the SAME THINGS in their grocery store or wherever you shop.    This month’s post will be on Friday, February 27th.  Why am I mentioning it now?  So you have time to check prices and schedule a post about it!   Seriously.  It’s fun……………if you wanna play along, here’s the shopping list for NEXT Friday the 27th.   It’s a “RANDOM” day…….why?   Get the prices for these items:

1.  A Random Frozen Meal of your choice

2.  A Random Dessert you like

3.  Any Random Fruit

4.  A Random Item (ANY item…..doesn’t matter WHAT it is, just tell us what you PAID for it)

5.  A Random condiment of your choice

Very RANDOM isn’t it?    Well, that will make it more fun………….anyway, put it on your calendars.  I guarantee you it’s fascinating to see the amazing range of prices for the SAME THINGS around the globe.

That’s all the news that’s fit to share in my house for today……………..how about you?  Anything exciting going on in your house?

Hugs, Sammy
