    Thanks Sandy! The best will be if they win and with a good team (15-3 record) and lots of noise to distract the other team (no audibles, silent counts tend to cause mistakes) we will achieve that I believe! I even did my nails with a W and the helmet and I have my cowbell. I told Finnie I’m going to watch a football game and he went grrrr (he gets so anxious when I watch them because he’s so empathetic)…little does he know that if they win I’m going to come home to watch it again:ROFLMAO:

    well, we had record highs in the mid 80s and now the low for tonight is forecast to be 38.......
    it's very rare that we get snow down here....

    The cold air made its way all the way down here. Nothing like everyone up north, but it was a chilly windy walk this morning. Could get down to freezing in some spots tonight. Zulu loves it. He has more pep in his step when the temperatures are down.

    Enjoy the game! We're at an unseasonal 70 degrees here again, but supposed to be colder next week. I hope you have good weather and a great time tomorrow, and your team wins! Great pictures, too!

    It is much colder here today and have seen a few snow flakes. Teddy is going outside and seems to like it. I just feel my knees hurt more because of the temperature change. :( I am ready for spring, LOL

    I agree with you Ron! My knees hurt too as does my calf (I pulled a muscle in it 2 years ago! I actually bought some Theracurmin (Curcumin/turmeric) as it’s an anti inflammatory and I also bought some Arnicare (a gel version of Arnica) and it’s helped immensely! https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07JM2K2XQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1
    I’m allergic to all NSAIDS and Tylenol just doesn’t do anything for me.

    Yep 80's (but raining) to 35º now and 34º at the farm. Supposed to be 40's tomorrow...winter in the south. Hope it stays dry though as I need to move some dirt with the tractor.

    Our past shelties have loved the snow--even to choosing to spend the day sleeping in it. Our current pack is just over one year so they have seen snow before but it is a kick to see them go outside for the first time into a bank of snow-- the expression on their faces is priceless.. now anyone know the best way to teach shelties about shoveling snow??? help wanted..

    I was just saying to my sister the other day how my neighbours must think I’m so mean to my dogs because I’m always yelling at them when I’m shovelling snow!:ROFLMAO:
    Piper barks and barks to the point only a down stay stops him, Finnie wants to jump into the snow I’m shovelling (while barking) and Blueberry wants to bite the shovel and will run huge laps around the yard (while barking lol). I am constantly trying to get them to stop and I will at times put them in the house but when they hear that scrape of the shovel against the pavement they bark in the house which irritates my mom who then yells at me to stop them:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:. winter is the worst…they never go after the lawn mower!:gaah

    Anyone interested in CFL Football (it’s not the same as the NFL) here’s the Grey Cup from last year between my team the Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs the Hamilton Tigercats. I won’t tell you who won but it was definitely a classic game that will go down as one of the best Grey Cup games on record!
