Did y'all miss me?? I had a grreat time at Grandma and Grandpa's house, and Momma said she had a pretty good time on her vay-cay-shun. (She keeps muttering stuff about sun and beaches now.) I'm sorry I'm a little delayed in getting back, but you might've heard of a little something keeping us busy.
Icemageddon struck! Now, before you northerners start making fun of us, you should know that Texas is just not equipped for dealing with ice and snow. Nobody has snow tires, and we don't really have any sand or salt trucks either. When it's icy, some guys go out and shovel sand out of the back of a pickup truck. So it hits us a lot harder than you, because you're prepared for it!
Momma grumbles a lot (more of that sun and beach stuff), but Cinderella and I still did our duty to make sure she got exercise. It was treacherous going for a while.
My job was to go on ahead and test out the sidewalk. If I started slipping, then Momma knew to walk a different path. Cinderella kept up rearguard to make sure we were all okay.
Sadly, we had one big casualty from the ice. The big, beautiful pear tree in our front yard went CRACK!
We have tree guys coming out today to clear away the big broken part and see if the rest of the tree can be saved. Yuck! I'm going to miss that guy.
But Icemageddon aside, the impawtant thing is that I'm BACK!!! I'll have the full Christmas card count tomorrow, but let me tell you, Momma hasn't even gotten ONE card yet. BOL!! Ours will go out sometime this week, I promise. We're a little busy here. (Oh, and Frankie and Ernie, did you know your momma is forging your signatures? I know you two would NEVER send out a snowfreak card!!!)
