Slush Puppies






I'm done with snow now, you can take it away thank you very much. I'm up to here with it (indicates knees).

It was just neccessary to pop a couple of snow pictures up so I could use this blog title. Lily in particular develops two little pairs of "snow trousers" after a while in the snow and starts to look a little bit like M.C. Hammer. Only a little bit.

As far as White Christmases are concerned, my new maxim is "be careful what you wish for!",

I'm off to play with my new I-Phone and am more gadget excited about this than at any time since I got my Sinclair ZX-81. Let's hope it's a bit more reliable than that readers!

You can get a Wordpress application for your i-Phone. But going to Wordpress loses bloggers commenters.

I'm waiting to see what Apple's tablet is like. But I'll probably turn on, tune in and drop it on a hard surface.

Rog said...

That's good Geoff. I just received a text message Reading "nerd alert!"

Dave said...

Yuppie.

If you got one for the dogs they would be yuppie puppies.

If they were still puppies.

Z said...

Young and upwardly mobile, Dave? Rog, I think we've just received a compliment from an unlikely source.

Macy said...

All I wish for right now is a snowmobile and a pair of snow shoes. With these I can safely reach Tesco....

Rog said...

Dave: They are puppies in spirit, much like yourself.

Z: If the phone slipped out my hand it might be a downwardly mobile.

Macy: I got to Tesco in Dereham yesterday, I don't see what your problem is!

Macy said...

Rog - HA! My wee Mazda sports vehicle hasn't managed to make it back up the hill to mine since before New Year. Even the iPhone doesn't have an app for that!

Tennis racquets. Tie tennis racquets to your wellies.
Sx

Rog said...

Macy: You can't expect miracles from a car named after a lightbulb!

Scarlet: I believe you've been reading too many Beanos. You'd be wellie gutted.

Geoff said...

Tennis racquets to your wellies?

You can't be serious!

KAZ said...

Tired of snow?
Are you a grown up or something?

The Dotterel said...

Didn't drive a C5 too, I suppose?

Rog said...

Geoff: It would look smashing on Annette.

Kaz: Even 5 year olds get tired of snow you know. They come in from snow after 30 minutes soaking wet with their hands frozen, crying their eyes out with tubes of green snot running down their face.

The Dot: You'd have to have been suicidal to have driven one of those things. I just had the onboard computer.

Christopher said...

ZX 81! You have to be very careful uttering too loosely such a mantra, such a talismanic invocation. It might start to snow again...

Rog said...

Christopher: I used to have a Talismatic Envocation but traded it in for a Ford Anglia Van. The suspension was rubbish.

Elizabeth said...

Oh, the lovelies! They cope with snow quite admirably, no?

Maybe no, after all...

For years, we thought our Aggie was super excited to see snow -- that's because he went on wild white romps whenever we got outside, galloping through it with (what we thought was) unbridled glee.

It took us years to figure out that he was most likely cold and trying to get the hell out of it as soon as he could.

Sigh. Slow humans.

Rog said...

Elizabeth: Oh dear, I'm feeling guilty now :-<
