WHAT HAPPENED TO THE 1ST DAY OF SPRING?

QUOTE OF THE DAY:
"Thoughtful minds discuss events,
Thoughtless minds discuss people."

What?? "Mommy, what happened? Isn't today the first day of Spring? Why is it gonna be 30 degrees tonight? Why is it raining? Why is it so windy? Why couldn't I play outside today? Why, Why, Why, Why?????????????



Hi friends,

Mommy couldn't answer my questions. Has Mother Nature gone totally mad. Mommy said there's always at least one cold snap before Easter but Easter is still almost 2 weeks away!!

Mommy said we was through with snow pictures and it was time for flower pictures, so since Mother Nature is confused this year Mommy picked the above picture since it has pretty flowers trying to grown in the snow.


But yesterday was a totally different day. It was gorgeous and very sunny and since it gets dark so late now Mommy and I got to play outside a little. Look what showed up in my backyard yesterday. The Black Stallion. He was laying in the grass next to the wooden fence in my back yard. Mommy said he must have jumped over the fence to come visit me and since nobody came after him I get to keep him.



Mommy gave me a Milk Bone and as you can see, I was really enjoying it. Of course everything tastes better with a little dirt on it so I took it to eat in the grass.



"Mommy!! Can I give Spike and Smokey a Milk Bone?"


"They keep watching me."

Smokey


Spike

"Of course we can share, 'Bobbitt', it's always better to give than receive."

Guess what? We had company this afternoon. My fella, Sammy's Mom Mary came to visit and today was her birthday. Mommy took her to lunch and she stayed most of the afternoon. We had a wonderful time. I even took a nap with her on the couch and Mommy had to nap by herself while she was taking the cure. There was only one problem, she didn't bring Sammy with her, but I could smell him on her so I pretty much ignored Mommy. It's only fair since Mommy ignores me when we are in the country and Roxie is all over her.

LESSONS FROM ALICE IN WONDERLAND

The Cheshire Cat: Keep Smiling

Alice meets the Cheshire cat at the Duchess's house and discovers he can vanish and reappear at will --sometimes leaving his grin behind. He becomes Alice's only friend in Wonderland because of his unflappable cool and even-keeled good humor. Remember our motto: It never hurts to smile.

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all..........Mona, AKA Bobbitt.

30 in Texas - that IS insane, Mona. But be glad you aren't here - we have lots of snow. It will melt soon but we are enjoying it while it is here.

Nice of you to share your biscuits. That was some horse that came to visit:)
