Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, Chess the purebred border collie, filling in for the guy I live with, and here to bring you some rays of hope on this gloomy, snowy day. You may remember me from such hopeful posts as “Springing Forward, Hopefully”, among so many, many others.
Here I am in a characteristic pose.You can see how I don’t show that I’m aware I have to go to see my doctor on Thursday, just to be looked at (and poked and prodded, but hopefully not stuck with needles). I am nothing if not stoic and totally tough, as you know.
They say it’s supposed to “nicen up” later this week, and maybe all the snow will melt, or at least the ice, which is no fun to walk on. The ice in the back yard has been sprinkled with sand, so I won’t slip on it.
There wasn’t really much to say today, but then the guy I live with went out to the little shade garden on the north side of the house, and saw these “tiny rays of hope”. I think the snowdrop at the bottom of this next picture kind of looks like a dolphin.
Very exciting. At least to one of us. He says that maybe if it does “nicen up” later this week, there will be more snowdrops.
Until next time, then.
