Baby it's cold outside

Ok people. This is getting ridiculous. We are supposed to be having temperatures in the high 40's in this neck of the woods this time of the year. Not only are we staying in the 20's and 30's we continue to get that 4 lettered name that starts with S. If anyone says said 4 lettered name in my house they get their mouths washed out with gold Dial soap. Just like Ralphie. Ugh, who remember that horrible soap? My mother must have thought it was the best thing since sliced bread since that is the only soap I remember from my childhood. Yuk, spit, make me puke out my mouth. So, saying the "S" word is not recommended in my family. Of course my family now consists of 2 boxers that think they can talk but we can't understand them and one 18 yr old teenager girl who wouldn't say any 4 lettered word that started with anything in front of me. She just says the b-word, or the s-word. Lord, there is no telling what she says when she is with her friends. But I don't even want to go there.

Of all of us that have to be so sick of this "S" word must be Jones. The poor dear has to live in it.


"I appreciate the extra grain Mama, but this is really getting old."


I know dear Jones. "They" say it will be over in a month.

Poor cold Jones..maybe he needs a horsey blanket?

No Lou, she stays warm. She has a really thick winter coat. Plus a stall and a lean-to she can get in. Plus the hay she eats helps her stay warm. I know what you mean though. A blanket would prevent her coat from naturally filling out like it should which would result in her being colder. Not to mention the fact that she would get the blanket off. She won't even keep a halter on. I will tell her that you are thinking of her though tonight!

Oh my god, that dial soap was awful. Thats all we used growing up too. I appreciate all the cool soaps that you can buy now, thats for sure.

It is cold here too but no S is forecast.

Dad bought that soap in bulk from LS DuBois, where he got most of his office stuff. He thought it was great stuff. But I never got my mouth washed out with it. You did?

I'm feeling really guilty because the flowering plums and acacias are blooming, the daffodils are up and there are big fat buds on the lilacs here in Central California. Oh, and the first crop of weeds is already 8 inches tall. We've had a week of sunshine now, so some of it must be heading east towards you. Hang in there.
