Spring Has Arrived

Yes, it's officially here. Spring has arrived in Western Canada. Time to put all our Winter toys and get ready to roto-till the big garden in Banff, Alberta. Wolfie is ready to keep a watchful eye on the Barbeque, just in case any of the delicious chicken seasoned in our favorite Cajun Spices decides to try to get away. That Cajun Spice is a wonderful gift from our friends Cappy and Peggy of the famous Cajun Cousins Website. I bet their dogs, Sparky, Marky Bear and Raleigh have enjoyed a sample of that Spice. Wolfie sure likes it! We gave him a taste of it a ways back, and he said it was chop lickin' good, which means darn fine in dog talk.

That Cold Bite of Winter

Imagine getting bit on the butt by a big mean dog named Winter. Even if you're a Polar Bear like the one in the picture, if you aren't prepared, the teeth of that big mean dog can sink pretty deep.
I'm never surprised when I see people who truly think the dog isn't going to bite them. As any Boy Scout will tell you, 'Be Prepared' is a motto to live by.
While I'm dodging the numerous accidents on my way to my rewarding career, I'm always on the lookout for drivers who still don't have a clue how to drive in extreme cold weather. And there are plenty of them. Some of them even speak the language.
Mind you, after Winter bites their butts, the looks on their collective faces is truly priceless.
Because it's the same look everytime.
Think you can balance a large hot coffee on your lap while talking on your cellphone making a left-hand turn? Didn't think so... How's that coffee feel now? Is your lap aflame with thoughts of a warmer climate. I guess you won't be in today. We'll just have to get by here without you.
Try to think some warm thoughts. And give that big mean dog named Winter a kind thought too. He'll bite you on the butt if you aren't prepared enough to give him kind thoughts.
At minus 30 degrees, you'll find out in a hurry just exactly why that Boy Scout motto is so popular. After all, Winter will always let you know why he's been around for so long. And with so many butts to bite, you'd think he'd get tired.
Apparently, every bite is as satisfying as the first one was. And expensive too. Did I mention that when Winter bites, he bites in the wallet?
So Be Prepared, and don't let Winter bite you on the butt. Your A$$ will thank you.
And have a nice day!

Ground Hogwash Day!

Okay Folks, I'm all for an early Spring this year, but I'm not in agreement with Wiarton Willie, Shubenacadie Sam, Punxsutawney Phil and all their prognostications regarding an early Spring.

The last time Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring was 1999. I was still shovelling into May. Something about Ground Hogs predicting the weather just doesn't jive with me.

Wolfie the Big Dog has a prediction too, plenty of Snow. Lots of Snow. Big mountains of Snow.

And some frozen Ground Hogs.

I plan on using them as slalom pylons when I'm riding down the mountain.

Punxsutawney Phil better bundle up :)

Mid January Check In

Whew, halfway thru January and still meeting ourselves coming and going. Too many books, not enough time. I'm sitting with a cup of coffee trying to figure out where all the time went, lol. It seems like just a few months ago I was learning how to send an email with the help of someone I've never ever met. Did six years go by that quickly? Sure doesn't feel like that long. In the immortal words of our good pal Jamesrobin, 'The clock's starts moving faster as the years go by...' And a Happy Birthday to Peggy Robin, JamesRobin and the soon to be home Cappy Pappy Robin, who's Birthday is next month, but we've always liked to be early.

See you :)
