Squirrelly!!!

After the acorn pummeling my dogs absorbed yesterday, they are on FULL Red Alert today.  As if they stand a chance…..  These are MEAN squirrels!!  I even took an acorn off the noggin today!! OUCH!!!
 
Now besides their squirrel issues the dogs also seem to be ‘stair challenged’!  Especially our Wiener dog Baxter.  If one of us happens to go upstairs he will bark and whine until he gets carried up, and then the fun begins!  Remember those ‘Slinkys’ we played with as kids??  Well that is what he looks like coming down!!  Too funny!!!!  And I DO have pics!!!!
 
It was crazy warm today!!  Over 70F!!!  And tomorrow???  Back to the 40’s….  With snow coming Thursday thru Monday!  Grrrrrrr!  We just might have to come back after a short visit to our ‘real’ home.  It never seems to snow when we are here.
 
Now, for anyone still using dial-up, I gotta tell ya that Verizon DSL is really great!!  It cost $14.95 a month and is as fast as the caingsble I use at home.  They mail you a ‘kit’ which includes a modem and all of the cables you will need.  It took me 20 minutes to set it up and the best part is, you can be online and use your phone at the same time.  The one thing is, you need to have Verizon as your landline provider… but it’s well worth the switch.  And NOOO!!!!  I don’t work for Verizon!!
 
We will be leaving tomorrow and making the drive down the mountain.   It was alot of fun but we have things to take care of down ‘there’.  I think the dogs will miss it here the most, but we will be back in a few weeks…… after I get the new laptop!!!  Woooo Hoooo!!!  Tomorrow night will be spent downloading photos, going through the ton of mail and surveying all of the yardwork that needs to be done.
 
I hope you all have a fun New Years Eve (I’ll be online!!!!  LOL!) and a wonderful 2008!!!!!

    *making note, ‘barking and whining will get me carried up the stairs’*  Good to know!
    Come down to the beach tomorrow…around 3:30.  We’ll be gathering there to watch the last sunset of 2007.
    Now what about Disneyland?  We’re thinking Thursday afternoon…

    Hope you and Mrs. S. and all the little S’s have a GREAT New Year.  Bet they had a blast squirrel chasing!  We don’t have squirrels here at all, but we have moles, while the dog likes to go after if a cat already has one cornered.  HA!  Bet you’ll be glad to hit the old homestead again and get back into your routine.  Enjoy the festivities the new year brings and stay positive on your hopes for the year to come!

    Hmmm……
    wondering if maybe I should just stay home tonight. Temperatures will be at a whopping 4!!!!! I think with the wind it will feel more like -10.
    nah, I’ll bear and grin it! wear lots of layers … right?
    I’ll just think of running up and down the beach with Raven and her family!
    warm fuzzie thoughts!

    HI BOB I will be snowbound inside and most likely be on line unless the server is too busy. I ran into that
    at Christmas time. Boy was it hard to get on line. I can’t switch carriers as I just paid for a year but most likely if I had to I would go with NETZERO which I have had ZERO troubles with. CANNOT WAIT to see all those lovely
    pictures. Hope your trip home was okay. HAPPY NEW YEAR..   http://thumbsnap.com/v/P20hpiq4.gif
