We've been waiting patiently for snow...it comes, it goes...there's even talk of a green Christmas; but that's not the monster of which I speak. I'm talking about this fellow:
He's a lean 44 inches of snow blowing fury and Ron's more than ready to wreak his revenge against any errant flakes. (Note the chains on the back. What you can't see is the 2 forty pound weights on the back to offset the weight of that most gnarly (yes, that's surfer speak - just embrace it) snow blower.) Here's the problem:

By way of an update, we've had no further mouse activity after vanquishing Mr. Scritchy and what we presume was his rather homely wife Mrs. Sneaky. (She opted not to take his name.) Hopefully no small Scritchy's were left behind. I find it particularly awkward as many advertisers have chosen to use cute little mice in their holiday commercials...the mice made their choice, I'm trying to be okay with it.
I hope this finds all of you ready for the holidays. We've opted to "do" Christmas this year and have decorated. It's strange how few decorations we seems to have in a house this big, but I think 2 Christmas trees is over the top for us, at least at this point.
To Paul, where ever you are, you are missed , the world was a more familiar place with you in it, but my Christmas wish for you is peace, whatever that is for you. I wish it for your family, too. And to a friend who just recently lost his father to a battle with cancer, my heart is with you and your family. Every life is precious and we are grateful for whatever time we get to spend in the light of their being.
