I'm not tellin.....



Okay okay I will tell...it's snowing out again!!!!!! And the flurries are coming down hot and heavy but at least we aren't in the middle of a white out ( that was a bit wild even from inside). We had a couple really wonderful days with temps in the high 40's and not a snowflake in the sky. Ahhhhha that was wonderful but alas I knew it couldn't last this time of year. I'm just very glad I don't live on the East Coast (USA) as they are once again getting pounded with very wild weather and even those who live in the southern part of the country have been getting more than their fair share of this stuff. Crazy crazy for sure.





My grandkids came across a song they all enjoy called Skunk in my trunk. Its a silly song and we all get a tickle out of it. Some of the words are..he's stickin up your automobile-forget about your roses he's stinkin' up your noses--mom's hair is gonna get frizzy---not in that order but I don't have the words or I'd write them all out so you could get a chuckle like we do. Now if anyone has ever hit one of these smelly critters you certainly can relate to this song and even if you happen upon one allready dead----oooooh my it's worse than hitting it . It's not unusual to see ones that have been hit but it's very unusual to see a live one but on our way home from church this past Sunday we took a back road ( and I do mean backroad!!!!--horsepath type) and lo and behold what do we see but Speaky Skunk live and in person. He was just strolling along side the road like he owned it but hey I wasn't going to argue with him, would you??? The kids got such a kick out of seeing this as all they had ever seen was a dead one. It was kinda awesome to see this animal in its natural surroundings and we just had to watch until it gave a warning squirt and truddle off into the woodsy area.
They say these black and white smell balls make some of the most wonderful pets but I think I'll just take their word for it--how about you???
Enjoy and remember---there's a skunk he's in your trunk.........

Thank you so much for your kind note on my blog, I truly appreciate your thoughts and prayers! I surely miss my wonderful dad, but in our memories he'll always be alive :)

We're in Georgia, and for the second time this year are seeing snow - which is super rare here. I'm enjoying the snow though, great up with lots of it, and miss real winters.... :)

I think skunks, badgers, raccoons, and all other un-loved animals are SO darn cute. But I have to agree with the smell from skunks. It's pretty bad. ^^
