The Polar Bear

In about the last 18 hours we have had at least 18 inches of snow and drifts up to three feet tall.  The  yard, trees, east sides of buildings, everything is white, white, white.  This whiteness spurred this exchange.

Dad:  Oh look, there is a polar bear out there.
Spark:  Where?
Dad:  Right out in the yard.
Spark:  There is no polar bear.
Dad:  He moved over to that side of the yard now.
Spark:  Dad, there is no polar bear.
Dad:  That is because he is blinking.
Spark:  Dad, there is no polar bear out there.
Dad:  Oh funny, now he is eating popcorn.

LOL! I have to try that one on Sierra.

I am so ready for spring. We had a thaw last Friday that was absolutely wonderful, but today we have a fresh layer of snow and the temperature dropped again. I want to dig in dirt!!!

Peace and Laughter,

I am ready for Spring too. We had the chance for snow, but thankful it was warm enough for just rain.
