Kibby had fun today. They did not get a tour of the justice building, there was a trail going on. Instead they toured the Edger Allen Poe museum.

I'm amazed and impressed at all your snow stories! And think, how fit all you shovellers must get! And the pics! Wow! But I think I'm glad I've always lived in a very temperate climate that does not get extremes of anything. Boring, eh?

Kat: Your new family member looks very sweet. May you have many years of joy with her.

I showed hubby these pics. He told me of a story he'd heard about a man who went to a lot of trouble to dig out his car, clicked the button to release the lock - and the flashing lights came from the still buried car in front of his. He'd dug out the wrong car! Couldn't help but be amused, poor fellow

That would be horrible, but I bet it happens. You'd have to have two people with the same make and color of car I would think. That's a city problem I guess, where you have cars parked one behind the other on the street.

I just noticed. Is that a little white dragon poking its head up through the snow in my first picture? Looks like it!

I am very happy that we did not get more than a dusting of snow. Kids in the area have only missed one or two days of school. So far I have liked our winter. Kibby has been disappointed. She likes the snow.

This is my idea of redecorating. I'm swapping the curtains in the den with those in the living room. Those in the den where the kittens are allowed to play are too long and they have been using them as climbing ropes. I got those curtains in Holland 40 years ago and they are really nice and I don't want them ruined. Of course, the space at the top of the ones in the living room are too small for the poles in the den so I have to pick every stitch out at the top to make them fit. Then it's in the wash on delicate and up they go.

The book was lost in fire or flood,but I know where I got the inspiration from,Gwenhwyfar is part of the name. I haven't decided yet whether I'll use the name I thought up years ago or incorprate part of her parents (which I don't know yet). I don't know what they've been calling her but she'll be Gwen when she's home.

This work week has been difficult however, I survived it. Now I just need to survive the school year.

ds#2 is finally walking after giving himself a lower leg contusion by pretending to be James Bond and jumping onto a moving bike. This was his fourth time doing it and failed this time leading to the contusion. The good news he didn't break it.

The most tell tail difference is the Pembroke has no tail,while the Cardigan does. There are other differences the Cardie is more stocky,their heads are less foxy in appearance. But the obvious is tail.

But, Kat! If it has no tail, how does it wag? Does the whole back end go side to side?! Or, is it just that they have a very small stump? Are they born like that and is it something that has been bred for?

Some breeds I think get their ears and/or tails "docked" early in life, which I've always thought was a cruel thing, akin to de-clawing a cat.

I believe these dogs are born that way. The ones I have seen when they wagged the tiny tail the have the whole rear end wagged.

Some have a little stub.yes I believe the whole butt wiggles. They have what is called the Corgi smile;

http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/thing...e-corgis-happy

I found that when I hit Corgi smile...

They can be born with a tail. They rubber band it at birth.The ears are naturally erect,no cropping.

My mom and I both remarked while they've pretty much stopped the practice of docking/cropping not one of the dogs in the Westminster show was shown *au natural*

Well, for us, the adventure has started. Dh retired the end of January and Friday we pulled out in our beautiful fifth wheel. We are just north of Charlotte, NC for a few days and visiting with friends. Tomorrow, we take off for St. Marys, GA, just north of the FL state line. We'll be spending the next couple months or so there, where it is warmer than NC.

Speaking of weather, it snowed yesterday!! Take a look!


Anyway, as the weather warms up too much, we'll head north. But for now, I'm looking forward to getting away from the cold! (And yes, I know this doesn't compare with what the northern states experience. I used to live in NW PA. But as I get older, the cold goes right through me!)

Right now, as I type, we're in the middle of another blizzard warning, and I can hear the winds howling. I think this storm was only going to bring at most 9 inches of snow, and even after a storm that brought two feet, that amount is pretty normal.

The real issue is going to be the winds. I did see that one of the TV stations has had to go on their generator, so there are some places that have lost power not too far away from me.

My son's girlfriend works as the education reporter and photographer for a Connecticut newspaper. One of the things she writes is an "around town" article each week. A few weeks ago I gave her a large box of Anne's books that I know I'm not going to read again and in the box was a copy of "No One Noticed The Cat". All our family are serious cat lovers (she is too) so I was pleased when she mentioned in last week's issue of the paper that she had read and enjoyed the book.

He is learning however, I would like to spend less time in the ER with him.

Because ds#2 is on limited activity, we have been watching NCIS. We are currently on season 5. It is hilarious listening to his thoughts and opinions after an episode.

Ds#1 sprained his ankle at track practice yesterday. While the atheletic trainer was looking at it she notices some other issues which may lead to physical therapy for him. I will be taking him to see his doctor on Tuesday.

It seems my boys want my main memory of their teen years to be time spent in doctors offices or hospitals.

We've been well enthusiastic to say the least in taking pics of Gwen. And I've discovered both my husband and I SUCK at taking video on our little digital camera.
But here's a couple pics of her. The three cats are all in an uproar but they'll all adjust. As you can see contrary to what her first picture looks to be she's not a red and white but a sable. (not that I care)

Thank you! Now if I could just give "the man" a push onto a plane. Who knows. I never expected him to be so enthusiastic about my quitting work! So far I'm loving my first day. Someone asked if I plan to look for other part time work. Nooooo, not really. I have more than enough sewing and reading to keep me busy and my other project is to lose some weight. I've been way too lazy and it shows in places I'd rather it didn't. IF I got bored, there is always a cat shelter down the street that needs volunteers or the thrift store in town that also needs volunteers. Relaxing, that's the ticket!
