Last month was a December for the record books — rainiest ever. The past three days and the weekend to come might be record-breaking cold days.
And neither of those facts has contributed positively to the lifestyle of BW. Therefore, BW has almost nothing to write about and finds herself at such a loss that she has resorted to the escape mechanism of writing in third person.
Because of the torrential rains and localized flooding last month, the usual fishing spots stayed turbid and unfishable. Believe her. She tried. The bad fishing had a trickle down affect on the rentals of Camp Dularge.
The winter weather wasn’t good for wetland tours, either.
Turns out, house builders don’t work in the cold and rain.
What is wrong with everyone?
There are rain coats to keep you dry. There are heavy coats to keep you warm. There is insulated underwear and shirts. There are gloves and warm hats.
Oh look on the bright side, you say. She’s had all this time off. Oh yes, that is true, but there is such a thing in the world of BW as too much time off.
So she is turning to her readers and friends to share their stories of life happenings.
Let’s hear what you’ve been doing in these long, dark days of winter. BW is going to take her house plan around to get estimates on electrical and plumbing while you type.
On the road again,
PS: Bw could not leave you with such a negative post, so she wanted to share this holiday photo of TiDu and the semi-feral cat named Figaro, since she looks just like the cat in Pinocchio.
TiDu was the gift puppy given to BW to cheer her up after Hurricane Ike flooded her home. Figaro is the offspring of Ike, the hurricane kitty that survived in a tree for days without food or water after Hurricane Ike flooded her home in 2008.
Then there is this Christmas morning photo of Termite and my grandkitty, Basie. Basie and Figaro are first cousins; though they have never met. I wonder if they met, would they know their mothers (Gus and Ike) were sisters? It would be a kitty family reunion, right? They look alike, don’t they? Basie belongs to Dotter and MuzicMan now, and she has grown into a beautiful, peaceful cat.
Oh, there’s no stopping now. These photos are bringing the warm fuzzies back. And just exactly what happened to the BW family Christmas?
Dotter and MuzicMan hosted Christmas Eve and morning this year for the family. They recently moved into a townhouse with more room and so generously volunteered to have Christmas at their place, and it was wonderful. The tree was so pretty, the gift wrapping so cheerful, the food so inviting. It really was a Christmas to remember. Thank you both for having us!
BW is thinking that December was just a blur, but when she looks at her photo files, she sees that she somehow failed to write posts for all the photos she took. She is now thinking maybe a recap of December might be in order, coupled with a contest. What do her readers think?
