What can I say???  This morning when I went out to do chores, it was pouring.   It rained with very high winds ALL night.  Smart Phoebe did not want to go to the barn, but Mademoiselle Gucci couldn't wait.

Fortunately, the horses had their sheets on, as it started to snow!  They stayed outside all day and to the best of my knowledge, did not go in the indoor for shelter.

Gucci and Phoebe like to get on the bed under my computer table and are happy to stay there while I am working.

Today they went out to their beds in the kitchen and wrestled for half an hour...lots of growling with affection.
Gary and I were invited out to lunch at the Garland, so we drove down about 12:30.  Picked up Louise and Jack on the way and had a nice meal with a side of good conversation.
Justine did chores tonight, so Gar and I could have some time by the fire.  Jenny needed to get the kids out (cabin fever), so they picked up some sundaes and came up to the farm.
I went out to see the horses about 7:15 and gave them each a carrot.  Finn and Grampa came in the barn to check things out and did a few chin ups.

I could not believe my eyes when I got in the house.  At 7:45pm the sky was pink!  After such a nasty day, it was a real treat.


  1. I like Gary's yellow rubber boots! Oh, so much rain. Brrr! I hope you have sun tomorrow.

  2. It's great to see Gary demonstrating how much life there is in we grandpas. Keep it up, Sir. Cheers, Mike.
