POOR MOLLIE



Mollie has been displaced...
relegated to the seat of the chair or her bed.





Yes, that little black blob is Mollie.




Zooey is comfortable in Mollies favorite spot
that has a permanent dent in it that Mollie created.
Yesterday mollie had this spot until Zooey arrived.
Mollie actually got up and let her have it.
She does not like to have her space invaded.






Zooey pretty much makes herself comfortable
 when and where she pleases.




What can I say??

IT'S ALWAYS SOMETHING


The other day I took Mollie for her afternoon walk.
I had noticed that the bird feeders needed to be filled 
so I put the containers of seed by the back door so I wouldn't
forget to fill them when I got back.
On my way back, I stopped at a neighbors to help with something.
When I got home, this is what I saw.
I first noticed that the spouts were open.
I didn't leave them that way!!





Darn squirrels anyway...they couldn't get in that way so
they started to chew the lids.
I noticed little pieces of white plastic on the ground.
Fortunately I can still use the containers.



They went away hungry.
Although I doubt that any squirrel around here is hungry.

THE PERFECT STORM

Saturday afternoon around four PM,
It started to snow. It really came down fast and ended by 11PM.
That is about the time Mollie and I head out for our bedtime walk.
I took my camera but there were headlights from the plow that 
was parked behind me as I was walking.
You can see Mollie in her little red coat.
They luckily hadn't salted yet..her feet were safe.




 Sorry about my neighbors car.





So pretty and quiet.



The next morning...more beauty







But, you know what they say about beauty...
"It fades fast."




 It warmed up 10 degrees in an hour..
it had already been above freezing...This snow won't last long.




I guess we had about 5 inches.





It was interesting that there was much less snow on the paths....
Because...
It didn't lay on them for the first few hours because they were warmer than the ground ?
That's my guess anyway.



That sure made our walk easier..
It's mid afternoon and the roofs and trees are bare.
Hope you had a nice weekend.
Happy Presidents Day.
