dragons and snow...

This pic shows our snowstorm as of yesterday morning…and it kept snowing all day! Overnight!  And is s'posed to continue into today….all of this is normal for us between now and April, what hasn't been normal is the warm 70s that preceded it.  I was kinda enjoying the warm 70s….

I just read and enjoyed the kids' book "How to train a dragon"…I have sold a million piggy banks, a million elephant cups, but GAWDAMN the red dragons are becoming bigger than that….I was fiddling with some paper yesterday and made a bookmark… seems timely when things are so topsy turvey around the world that we would turn to dragons...

a foot of snow….

Like I said, we had about 73  on Saturday until a sudden change dropped the temps. and Sunday it snowed off and on all day…now, looking out the window, we have 8-12 inches lying on the ground, with more expected to fall through Tuesday! Feeling Christmassy……

it was HOT while it lasted….

(funny, the things you find on the camera--the cat crawled into the wife's skirt…)

Yesterday we knew the weather report:  "70 degrees until rain and snow blow in this afternoon".  We took Penny to the dog park and walking on Cayuga was HOT…we got in the car around 3 and in the short time it took to drive home the temps fell to the 40s…in minutes, and kept on going until 6 pm when snow started…ANYWAY, weren't we smart for hiking in the hot weather?  We probably won't see that warm again for 6 months or more, and YES, there is snow on the ground out there, more predicted each day until Wednesday….

dragons and skulls...

I was idly thinking, as I have before, "wouldn't it be funny if you had a dragon eating a skull?" and if you google image it you come across an alarming number of scary tats showing just that.
I'll spare you.  Mine is a CUTE version, right?

The flying dragons I showed the other day with black wire…well, it was suggested that I should get some clear line…so I did.  And in going out to gt a phot, like the Beatles said, here comes the sun, and….NICE :)
