I am Soooo Ready for Winter!!!!


Good evening friends...
I am ready for it to be cold and stay cold for awhile. And nothing higher than 60 degrees here! It seems like we have not had a good winter here in central California for the longest time!!! I don't think I have worn my coat for two years......


The last time it snowed here was in 2001 and it was about 1 inch deep and stayed on the ground for an hour...LOL! It is one of the best memories I have of my dad though. It was in April, (yeah I said April) and it snowed here. My dad came over and woke me up (I was working nights on patrol) to play in the snow. He was video recording us. My yard was white and my police car had snow on it. My little dog (she has since passed away) Sadie Mae, my Lhasa Opso of 15 years, were outside in the snow. My dad was talking during the video. And as usual, he was zooming around making everyone dizzy...LOL He had a habit of doing that! He was talking and laughing at us. He passed away in November of 2001. So when I think I have forgotten his voice, we get the video out and play it. You can't see him, but you can hear him....
This was my Sadie Mae...in her pink suede and fur coat....the princess....

Isn't it amazing how attached we can become to our pets? I never thought I would survive losing her, but I have, after two years....I still miss her and have her little face on my cell phone. I wasn't gonna get another dog, then I found Kody...he was the cutest puppy....Now he is Mr. Handsome!!! And he knows it....LOL!

Well, I am so glad that California voted Yes on Prop 8!!!! YES!!!!!! Unfortunately I am sad for McCain, I really hoped he would win....So, now all I can do is pray and know that God is in Control!

One more thing....this is my new banner for my Lollishop store. It will be opening soon, so keep an eye open....

Oh....I almost forgot....I will be listing new items this week on my website and will be having a giveaway here on my blog. So check back sometime this weekend.....God Bless You all! Goodnight....Becs

If you want snow and cold come to the Buffalo, NY area! We have plenty (well no snow yet unless you go about an hour south, they had THREE FEET!). I would love not to wear my winter coat!

Becs ~ it's ironic, you too lost a dog and got a new one and named him Kody! You will appreciate the post "Crossing Rainbow Bridge", thus I must admit, it may make you cry! When I posted this one, I had no idea you, too had lost a loved pet like we did!

I love the new look of your blog. It looks wonderful! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Mimi
