Hi all our dear friends,
It's time to share all the pictures of some of my friends that like snow as much as me. I am envious of all of them but me and the Mommy love all of these doggies and their pictures. Yesterday the Mommy mentioned that it had only snowed 4 times in the almost 61 years of her life. Two times it snowed there wasn't enough to even build a snowman. Once was on Christmas Eve 2004, where it snowed that afternoon but melted during the night....I wasn't with the Mommy then so I guess I didn't miss much. Of course it snowed December 10, 2008 but the Mommy had to work late that day and by the time she got home it was really dark and all there was to see was a thin coating of snow at my house, but you saw how much snow the boys got at Aunt Judy's. The Mommy is gonna share the other time she actually saw snow....now that will really make you laugh. The other time is when she didn't see the snow but it snowed big time.
To start my post, I want to show you 2 pictures of our friends that have just what a doggie needs to star warm in the snow. Lorenza has never seen snow but she sure looks ready if it ever does snow.
Think back to 1959 ( all you doggies & most of your parents weren't even born yet) when it snowed for the first time in my young life....I was 11 years old. Ah to be young again! All my sisters and I were tomboys. I was rather hardheaded and did things that tended to get me in hot water. We were a school when it started snowing early that morning (a Wednesday) and the nuns would not let us go outside until school was out.....even at lunch we were forced to stay inside the lunchroom. We all kept looking out the window, while the snow was getting deeper and deeper. I would do anything on a dare and so when my best friend dared me to sneak out of the room, I took action. When Sr Mary Evanglista left the room, I jumped out the window. Only there was one problem, we were on the second floor. To make a long story short, I broke my arm. My Daddy was furious and I wasn't allowed to go outside at all and the snow didn't melt until Sunday, that just happened to be my Dad's birthday. I cried and cried but he never let me go out. He said maybe I would learn my lesson.....I never did.

Think back to 1972 ( maybe some of your parents where around then) when it snowed 3 times in Houston in a 10 day period, I was a sweet young thing at 24 years old and I didn't get to see any of it. Why? Because I had flown to Michigan, to spend my 2 week vacation with my sister, her husband and my 3 year old niece and I knew it would snow there. I went to Michigan to see snow since it never snows in Houston. It never snowed once while I was there but snowed 3 times at home. We did go to the mountains for a weekend where the snow never melts, even got to go snow mobiling and skiing but it wasn't like actually like seeing it snow in your own back yard. The day I flew home it snowed that evening but I was sitting on the runway back in Houston. At least my niece made a snowman and sent me a picture. If I didn't have bad luck, I'd have no luck at all!!

Love, kisses & huggies to all.....Mona & the Mommy too!!
