Christmas in July

In an attempt to reverse this summer’s heat wave, Siku, in her July 25, 2011  post,  suggested that bloggers post a Christmas picture to help reverse the oppressive heat that has been plaguing most of the country.  

*Mind relief *from the hot weather sounds wonderful.

We dug into our archives and posted some 
Christmas pictures.

Thoughts of a Christmas tree . . .

Stocking hung  with *care* (???)

In the Arms of Morpheus with visions of Sugarplum Dog Treats . . . dancing in my head.

Ollie's First Christmas.  Notice the lack of ornaments on the bottom of the tree.

Ollie, Christmas 2010

Santa Paws had given us lots of treats and toys wrapped in paw print and doggie paper.

We received matching new dog beds which we desperately needed.  I can always tell which one is MY bed.  It's the cleanest one and has no Milk Bone crumbs.

Mom really loved that pillow.  Was she trying to tell us something ?

Let's not forget my Barkday on December 24th.  No, those are NOT horns growing out of my head.

If this picture doesn't grip you in the arms of Jack Frost, nothing will.  
This is Mom shoveling snow at the Long Island house.
(Hint to Mom:  "Never use a shovel that is as big as you are.")
Be careful what you wish for.

The indignation of it all . . . businesses  are using 
OUR names !!!
We deserve some royalties !!!

4th of July 2011

I could tell that this was going to be a hot day.  Here is the temperature reading at 8:OO AM.

I advised everyone that we'd better hit the Dog Park early.

Ollie just wanted to just chill out at home, but I persuaded him to get up on all fours.

Jessica joined us and off we went . . .

Ice pops were a welcome treat upon returning home.

Mom was content to spend the rest of the day in the pool, working on tan maintenance.  I told her that too much sun equals *melanoma on the installment plan*, but she never listens to me.

The most exciting part of the day was when the power went out.  
We sat outside with Dad . . .

Not one to waste time, Mom grabbed her
crocheting while it was still light outside . . .

This was the temperature in the evening:

Mom grabbed all the candles that she could find and lit them.

Power was finally restored around 10:30 PM and we had a repeat performance of another power outage on Tuesday evening which lasted until early Wednesday morning.

We hope that everyone had a fun weekend, we've had better.
