40 Degrees of Separation


After gifting us with the delicious squid jerky, B had to hit the road again for work. While they don't have squid jerky in Idaho, my native state, hopefully B will be able to bring us something back other than Idaho Spud bars. Even if I could eat chocolate, I wouldn't consume one of these. The cheerleaders used to throw these out at basketball games at B and J's alma mater, and the students would usually throw them back. A truly foul sweet... If only the cheerleaders would switch to squid jerky. Now that would be something.

At any rate, spring paid us a brief visit on Saturday. Here we are sunning ourselves on the deck in the 70 degree weather. J wore shorts and her legs looked kind of like my coat, but not in a good way. I mean, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and all that, but one hyphenated word springs to mind: SELF-TANNER.

The balmy day was followed by a 40 degree drop in temperature, howling winds, and some snow. J even put on the crinkly pants to go snowboarding and called it off when the roads got too nasty. This meant she could take care of more important matters, like attending to us.

I may be old, but I can still hold my own in the classic frolic event.

Thanks to the shift in weather and the radiant heat from the ground, the snow was ultra-sloppy. This resulted in the unfortunate effect pictured here.

And now we await Ben's return sometime next week. I may sleep until then.

Hey, I feel let down. I just got back from Boise, and I don't remember seeing any Spuds candy! Maybe I should go back?

My Human said she's heard of the spud candy, but never had any. I told her based on your post she should forget about it.

On the other paw, I definitely need to find the squid jerky!

If the apes would just grow out their coats they wouldn't have to worry about self-tanner and such.


ps. That spud candy may be nasty but I'd still eat it.

We saw your page on the Bone Zone so we just had to stop in for a visit. We are 2 wild blue heelers too. We just recently adopted Louie who is a red heeler mix but we don't know what he is mixed up with. hehe He is deaf so my mission is to keep an eye on him and bring him back when he strays from Mom..
Stop on over and check us out..
