Wet Left Coast

Yeah…. still rain here!  That’s good, right??  Tell me it’s good!!!  LOL!  That cat, ‘Torment’ is owned by a neighbor….  Oh wait.  I forgot it’s a cat so she owns THEM!!  She, yeah she!, is really a beautiful feline and my roof seems to be her spot.  She gets under the eaves when it rains but loves to sit on the highest peaks and stare me down!!  Dang it!!!  She always wins!!!!!  My dogs really like her being around!!  PBFFFFFT!!

Went to bed last night, turned the light on and found this mess!!  God love ’em!!

Rain Chain

Move the heck over!!  LOL  Too funny!!


Next storm is moving tonight for two days and another on Thursday.  My dogs kill me with the sniffing of each other’s butts!!  Cesar Milan calls dogs butts their ‘business cards’!!  LOL!!  I guess so!  Must be lots of info there…. if you’re a dog!!


Grammy’s are tonight!!!!!  Kenny Chesney and Rascal Flatts are performing and Rascal Flatts are up for a Grammy!!  On CBS!!  I’m trying to guess what song Rascal Flatts will perform but I’m always wrong about these things.  But here are my three guesses:

1. ‘Me And My Gang’

2. ‘Here’

3. ‘God Blessed The Broken Roads’

And maybe….

4. ‘What Hurts The Most’ or ‘Winner At A Losing Game’

Oh crap!!  Just a ‘wish list’!!  LOL!!  I’m such an idiot!!   LOL!!!


Tonight’s Funny!!  For all of you that have to put up with so much snow this Winter!

Diary Of A Snow Shoveler

December 8: 6:00 PM.
It started to snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I
sat for hours by the window watching the huge soft flakes drift down
from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses Print. So romantic we felt
like newlyweds again. I love snow!

December 9:
We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow covering every
inch of the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a more
lovely place in the Whole World? Moving here was the best idea I’ve
ever had. Shoveled for the first time in years and felt like a boy
again. I did both our driveway and the sidewalks. This afternoon the
snow plow came along and covered up the sidewalks and closed in the
driveway, so I got to shovel again. What a perfect life.

December 12:
The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a disappointment. My
neighbor tells me not to worry, we’ll definitely have a white
Christmas. No snow on Christmas would be awful! Bob says we’ll have
so much snow by the end of winter, that I’ll never want to see snow
again. I don’t think that’s possible. Bob is such a nice man. I’m
glad he’s our neighbor.

December 14:
Snow, lovely snow! 8" last night. The temperature dropped to -20.
The cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath away,
but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the
life! The snowplow came back this afternoon and buried everything
again. I didn’t realize I would have to do quite this much shoveling,
but I’ll certainly get back in shape this way. I wish I wouldn’t huff
and puff so.

December 15:
20 inches forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4×4 Explorer. Bought
snow tires for the wife’s car and 2 extra shovels. Stocked the
freezer. The wife wants a wood stove in case the electricity goes
out. I think that’s silly. We aren’t in Alaska, after all.

December 16:
Ice storm this morning. Fell on my butt on the ice in the driveway
putting down salt. Hurt like heck. The wife laughed for an hour,
which I think was very cruel.

December 17:

Still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere.
Electricity was off for 5 hours. I had to pile the blankets on to
stay warm. Nothing to do but stare at the wife and try not to irritate
her. Guess I should’ve bought a wood stove, but won’t admit it to
her. I hate it when she’s right. I can’t believe I’m freezing to death
in my own living room.

December 20:
Electricity’s back on, but had another 14" of the stuff last night.
More shoveling. Took all day. Snowplow came by twice. Tried to find a
neighbor kid to shovel, but they said they’re too busy playing
hockey. I think they’re lying. Called the only hardware store around
to see about buying a snow blower and they’re out. Might have another
shipment in March. I think they’re lying. Bob says I have to shovel
or the city will have it done and bill me. I think he’s lying.

December 22:
Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more inches of the
white stuff fell today, and it’s so cold it probably won’t melt till
August. Took me 45 minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel
and then I had to pee. By the time I got undressed, peed and dressed
again, I was too tired to shovel. Tried to hire Bob who has a plow on
his truck for the rest of the winter; but he says he’s too busy. I
think he’s is lying.

December 23:
Only 2" of snow today. And it warmed up to 0. The wife wanted me to
decorate the front of the house this morning. What is she … nuts???
Why didn’t she tell me to do that a month ago? She says she did but I
think she’s lying.

December 24:
6". Snow packed so hard by snowplow, I broke the shovel. Thought I
was having a heart attack. If I ever catch that guy who drives that
snowplow, I’ll drag him through the snow by his hair. I know he hides
around the corner and waits for me to finish shoveling and then he
comes down the street at a 100 miles an hour and throws snow all over
where I’ve just been! Tonight the wife wanted me to sing Christmas
carols with her and open our presents, but I was busy watching for the

December 25:
Merry Christmas. 20 more inches of the #$%&*!! slop tonight. Snowed
in. The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. I hate the snow! Then
the snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over
the head with my shovel. The wife says I have a bad attitude. I think
she’s an idiot. If I have to watch "It’s a Wonderful Life" one more
time, I’m going to kill her.

December 26:

Still snowed in. Why did I ever move here? It was all HER idea. She’s
really getting on my nerves.

December 27:
Temperature dropped to -30 and the pipes froze.

December 28:
Warmed up to above -50. Still snowed in. SHE is driving me crazy!!!

December 29:
10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave
in. That’s the silliest thing I ever heard. How dumb does he think I

December 30:
Roof caved in. The snow plow driver is suing me for a million dollars
for the bump on his head. The wife went home to her mother. Another 9"

December 31:
Set fire to what’s left of the house. No more shoveling.
January 8:
I feel so good. I just love those little white pills they keep giving
me. Why am I tied to the bed?


LMAO!!!  Hope Spring comes SOON!!!!

Rascal Flatts tonight……… Of Course!!!!  My Fav!!

CYA!!!  Bob~

Sure hope they win the award.That "Diary of a Snow Shoveler" was just too funny :-)Anyway…gotta run and get my dinner dishes cleaned up so I can watch the Grammy’s.Yeah…dogs and their butt sniffing LOL….thank God us humans don’t carry our business cards there.Have a great evening.~Karin~

  3. CAROL says:

    BOB…heheh shoveler…too close to real sometimes.. YES bless those pups I bet it gets really busy in there hen it thunders!!LOL"IT never rains in Ca….. LORD it POURS!!" I am just saying… take care : )

  4. Joe says:

    Cat’s always win a stare down and dogs always think that the bed is theirs…just some laws of nature. Did you ever see "Dr. Doolittle"? I about split my gut when that kid tried to sniff the pastor’s butt! LOL!

  5. Jude says:

    LOL – I’ve seen that snow diary one before!My couch currently looks like that, if I unblocked access to my bedroom, they’d both be on there and it’s only a double – yikes!Rain…well, I’d much rather see you get the rain down there, than us up here cause my roof still isn’t fixed. Then my water woes continued – I just realized some of the drywall in my bathroom is wet and has been for quite a while…….hmm, thought the "neighbour" fixed that when he installed my vanity and toilet last winter. Apparently not. <<insert expletive here>>I’m now wondering if I should even freakin’ bother with my trip or use the money on more damn home improvements! Problem is, I already have my plane ticket!!!! Grrrrrrrrr.I’ll figure it out – I always do. Maybe it’s time I give a call to my Mom, since my brother and sister have both regularly done so and I never have…….then again, maybe not! LOLThey’re calling for freezing rain here overnight. I’m not sure if it’ll reach up this far north, but I sure hope not! I guess that means I should get the hell to bed now to get some sleep before the morning attempts to drive! heheTake care 🙂

  6. Grandma's says:

    GRRR…..Sugarland??!! Don’t care for them at all. I’m with you, I prefer the CMA’s. Oh well, it won’t be long and you’ll get to see Rascall Flatts live (I’m green with envy….oops that’s a sin….but, gosh darn it, I’m still green with envy). You, however, deserved to win those tickets and maybe one day I’ll get to see them live when they head up our way….which no doubt they will.Have a wonderful Monday BobP.S. So far my computer is hanging in there (keeping my fingers, eyes, and toes crossed….can’t afford a new one just yet no matter how good the bargains are).

  7. Sue says:

    Heard that snow one before! Hilarious and oh, so true! Yup, it’s more rain in the forecast. Maybe some SNOW near us too. All three of our animals are almost always together in our room—cats on the corners and dog on the floor (she’s too big to be able to be ON the bed). It’s funny how they REFUSE to sleep together.

  8. ♥ Aimee says:

    i love the joke!♥~♥ :oD because you shared a smile…someone’s day got brighter… :oD ♥~♥

  9. John says:

    Yes it is an Information Highway for Dogs sniffing butts.Did you know that a dog can tell what is wrong with another dog, by sniffing the Business Card……….LOLsDid you also know that Dogs can tell what is wrong with a human, and they do not need to sniff your Butt to do this.Speaking of Dogs, I am going to get another Dog for me, (The wife has a Dog) I want a Female that has been fixed, Not to sure what i want, but i am headed for a Black Lab, since i had one before, and they are a Very caring and gentle Dogs! But then again i might get another Chihuahua.John

    ROFL! Thanks for the chuckle Bob. Unfortunately all tooo true for some of us this Winter. Actually, my sentiments exactly up until about a week ago when the weather took a big U turn for the better. Looking for near 60° ABOVE zero today! WOOHOO! But like all good things, it’s coming to an end in a day or so. 😦 We definitely got our January thaw, it just waited till February to arrive. Kaeden keeps talking about it being Spring! Hard to ‘splain that it ain’t Spring yet. Just a little teaser.Anyway, have a great day! Ya’ might know, on a day where it’s time to break out the shorts, I have to work all day rather than a half day. 😦

  11. Shelly says:
