Fourteen Snowflakes, Hail and Thunder!

What a strange weekend! Yesterday, I was awakened from a nice nap when suddenly there was this rumbling sound and then loud thunder boomies came and then I stared out the window and counted fourteen snow flakes and then pea sized hail came down too fast for me to count! Well, that pretty much eliminated (before it had begun) our afternoon time on the balcony. So, we each found ways to keep ourselves busy.

Hope is learning to play ball. Mom doesn't think she ever had toys before but we are trying to teach her how to play and I think she's catching on quite well.

It was really scary when the thunder boomies fell but it was kind of fun counting the snow flakes and watching the hail.

Tommy busied himself playing with Mom's shoes. Don't tell but he kind of has a shoe fetish. Sometimes he sticks his face inside mom's shoes and actually sniffs them. Eeeew!

We got an award this week! We've gotten awards before but our mom (even though she is not feeble minded) has never been able to figure out how to post the award from someplace else other than "My Pictures" on her computer. Honestly, the woman needs to read a few instructions and use her head! Sheesh! Anyway, this time she e-mailed the award to herself and then saved it to "My Pictures". So, with due apologies to everyone who has sent us awards before for mom not getting them posted, we want to thank Cliff and Olivia for giving us the Zombie Chicken Award.

What an honor! This is what the Zombie Chicken Award is about:
"The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken--excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens to read their inspiring words."

If I ran into a raving pack of zombie chickens I think I'd ask Tommy and Hope to help me herd them toward a big pot full of boiling water. Yum Yum. Thanks so much for the award Cliff and Olivia.

Now, the rule says I need to pass this on to five other blogs. If you get this and you are the type of blogger who would rather walk across shards of glass rather than post awards and stuff like that it's o.k. we'll send some zombie chickens your way for supper.

O.K. Here are some of our friends to whom we want to send the Zombie Award:

Lucy and Trixie
Twizz and Jack
Edgar Allen Bun
Scooby, Shaggy and Scout
William, Olivia, Caroline, Russell and Gracie

Have a really great week everyone!

Oh gosh you guys, we are so flattered to accept this award from you! We don't get many, so when we do it's very special to us!!! Re your comment:
Our neighbor Judy is an animal person. She has an orange cat named Peaches that never goes outside and a young female dog that's a part pit bull/part long legged doggie of some kind. She walks the dog and the dog is only out in the front yard if shes tied out. She basically ignores her back yard where the kits are. Its weedy all summer and backs up to a wooded area so its pretty secluded. That's part of my dilemma about telling her.

Snowflakes AND thunder boomies? We're scared of thunder also.

It's great that Hope is learning to play. We think she'll probably get a hang of it quickly with your help :)
