I’m just wondering, because it seems He’s forgotten to turn off the snow button. Maybe Al Gore forgot to forward the video about global warming to Him? Do you suppose the angels forgot to give him the Memo?
Only 270 days left till Christmas!
We had a couple inches of wet, heavy snow fall over night and it shows no signs of stopping. It just keeps coming down. And you know how I feel about snow. It slows down my outdoor chores tremendously. I get cold, the ground gets sloppy beneath my boots; there’s nothing pretty about muddy snow. And as it’s a wet snow, it also becomes slick when you try to navigate your way across it. Less pretty than muddy snow is a muddy Horsewife’s hiney after she’s picked herself up out of it. Snow is not my friend.
But today…well, today I might be able to make an exception. You see, it’s the annual bike race around my valley. And as great as my passionate feelings for snow, they’re even greater for bicycles. If there’s one thing I dislike more than the Objectionable White Stuff, it’s a bicycle hogging up my road making it difficult to navigate my way home.
Last year’s race had no snow
“You’re just like your Father,” said my mom one day. “He can’t stand bicycles out here. No where to pass them legally with that double yellow line between town and home.”
“The two of you should try bowling,” I answered.
She gave me a dubious look.
“You open the door as he’s driving past and see how many you can take out. Then record your score. We’ll compare later in the week to see if you can get a higher score than Darling and I.”
Don’t they look like they’re having fun?
If it was that much fun last year,
I can’t imagine they’d want to be here in the snow…
Yup, bicycles are a nuisance. More so than snow. And today there’s a lovely white blanket covering the ground. Wonder if they’ll cancel the race?
