And a Happy New Year!!!

We survived the Christmas Blizzard of '09. Had about 12 inches of snow dumped here in our neck of the woods, starting on Christmas Eve and didn't end until the next afternoon. It was wicked to watch, but very pretty when it was all done. It was great fun to watch our new llamas prance in the snow. They didn't feel cold at all because they were wearing their wool coats, and their breaths came out their noses like steam. It made ol' Banana Ears look mad! Hee hee! I call Stomper that because 1) his ears are big; and 2) it has become apparent that we are never to be best buds. You see, llamas DO NOT LIKE DOGS. Period. No ifs, ands or buts about it. He's a "dog-stompin' fool" according to his last owner. At least they told us that BEFORE I became a gooey spot in the dirt. So, no more going to the pasture with My Boy to feed the critters. It belongs to Stomper now and forever.

Now on to happier thoughts, My Boy and I had a rip-snortin' good time in the snow. We wrassled, rolled, hollered, flung snow and played Catch-Me-If-You-Can until our tongues hung out. We'd stop long enough to thaw out, then hit the snowbanks again. Cap stayed indoors and slept. He's been doing that more and more lately, old man. Glynn watched from afar like a lady. She's too reserved to wrassle much, though she's not above nipping me in the bum as I fly by. Wheeee!

Wishing everyone out there a safe New Year's Eve and looking forward to a Great New Year!

Happy New Year Tell! It sounds like you are getting boundaries and roles and relationships all sorted out just in time to enjoy the new year. That snow storm sounded like loads of fun to enjoy - what a great way to start the year!

It's been great getting to know you in 2009. We look forward to even more good times in 2010. Be safe. Be happy.

Tell, you be careful of those llama's. Best things for them is to make some yarn with their fur coats for your Mom to knit with.

Any time your boy needs another playmate bark for me I'll be right over. Sounds as though he's a dogs best playmate.Look out for Cap and give him my best. tell him to stay inside wrapped up and cosy.

Wiry love Eric xxx
