It snowed yesterday. It was not supposed to snow. It was supposed to be sunny and 42f. But it snowed. And today, the shit's still there.
I am way over snow. Living out here, snow means 'some dumbass is going to drop a tree on the lines and our power is going to go out." Because sure as shit, someone will decide that the cottonwood (not a good firewood tree, but an excellent 'fall on your house' tree) next to the power lines on their property will make perfect firewood, fire up the chainsaw - or, in one memorable incident, run their tractor into the tree until it fell on him, the tractor, and the line - and, boom boom! out go the lights!
Still, it's pretty, and I should quit bitching. We have a generator if the power goes out, and this is not our first rodeo. Country livin', friends.
So someone sent me, for Christmas, a three foot tall inflatable pickle. I inflated it immediately. It seems like a happy pickle, and it saved me having to get a Christmas tree - hell, it's green! and so, I have a three foot tall inflatable pickle in my house. My friends know me well! Indigo Roth, if you're out there, thank you SO much! I got a good laugh out of it and so did the Biker.
We have Christmas lights up, and they looks great. Red, white and blue! We also have both our Biden-Harris signs prominently displayed, and we've had a couple of coal-dumps
"Blowing coal" is when somebody with a diesel truck and a tiny dick wants to show his ass.
and an angry honk-n-rev or two because of that, and I love it!
See, Democrats are supposed to be Un-American socialist sleazebags looking for a free ride, at least in local tradition, and it just burns the Republicans to see us, proud home owners, with our flag out on all national holidays, our tidy yard, display garden, our late model cars and our red, white and blue Christmas lights. We refuse to comply with their stereotypes and dammit, that just will not do! What kind of an idiot lets that kind of thing get them so pissed off that they present a hazard to traffic? Coaling a house??? REALLY?? Back during the elections, I had my Biden-Harris sticker, and a nut in a truck almost sideswiped me, flipping me off and honking, at one of the busiest intersections in Bellingham - I mean the idiot swerved out of his lane and acted like an ass because of a sticker! And my husband was repeatedly coaled on his way home from work because of his Biden-Harris sticker. That certainly showed him. Gaah, what a bunch of losers.
Of course I hope all of you have a wonderful Winter Holiday. The Biker is going to fire up the smoker and do a pork loin wrapped in bacon. You know you wish you were me!
Let me know in the comments what you're going to be up to!
