Christmas @ our home



There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.

Thundersnow


video

Thundersnow also known as a winter thunderstorm or a thunder snowstorm is a rare thunderstorm with snow falling as the primary precipitation instead of rain. It commonly falls in regions of strong upward motion within the cold sector of extratropical cyclones between autumn and spring when surface temperatures are most likely to be near or below freezing.

Hunters & Hunted


We spent the afternoon shopping at Cabellas
(it will be a camo Christmas)
and lunch at my favorite, Cracker Barrel.

Of the WI hunters hitting the woods on opening day, 595,926 (94 percent) were residents and 35,297 were nonresidents. When 203,571 bow deer license sales are added to deer gun totals, deer hunting participation is at 835,000, a slight increase over 2007. In conditions that varied from sub-zero to chilly and overcast on opening morning, hunters participating in the traditional November 9-day gun deer hunt registered a preliminary tally of 133,828 deer over the first two days of the hunt a 22 percent decrease from 2007

Even the deer have a sense of humor

Thanksgiving 2008


One of the best ways to describe our new little town of Fox Lake (population 1454 plus 2) , would be "The Christmas Story". It's a small town with the same style homes and lots of different and wonderful families. We celebrated Thanksgiving with our next door neighbor and her family. Five families, dogs, cats and kids. It was grande and so much good food, wine and conversation. At least when you can't be with family, it's so nice that you have such good friends to share with.

Winter Warm




Found this pretty wool, 8 ft round carpet at Tuesday Mornings, sure helps to warm up the dining room a little bit.

New friends, New places







Had a wonderful day trip to Madison with my new neighbor, Donna. After exploring the capital area and visiting some fun specialty shops around the square, we met up with her sister and had a fabulous Italian meal at Tutto Pasta Trattoria.

First Snow Flurries

30 degrees and partial sun is out but that just makes the flurries sparkle as they fall from the sky, just a sign of what's to come...

Headed South



Just passin' thru, pictures before and after they saw me, it was awsome, the sound of their honking and their wings taking flight. Below are those Sandhill cranes stopping over on their way to New Mexico...

Thank God 4 Cruise Control & Coffee

It's been awhile since I've had access to my computer but I need to get back to my blog and update my audience. We are now living in Fox Lake, WI. I left California on a Saturday and drove to WI with Buddy, Zero and Joe. (We are all missing Harold)

We arrived late on Tuesday night, not stopping for much other than fast food and late night motels that allowed pets. I took a Southern route due to snow up North. The trip was so much more fun with Steve when we came back in September via Utah and Colorado with Steve.
None the less, we are here and a new chapter starts nowMy F150 runnin' with the BIG DAWGS
