Not the best picture coz my batteries were 3/4 dead. Couldn't even edit too well. Grizzly is awake. This is part of my backyard. We have about 1/4 of an acre of protected woods so the deer romp and the wildlife is beautiful. Hope to get some pics of those. That my Christmas tree in the backgound.
It's usually really pretty in the spring and summer because I dump all my wild flower clippings back there. LOL...sometimes they grow far prettier in the woods than in my garden. I just love looking out my backdoor to this. What a difference from my former "burb" life. It's definitely worth the commute to work.
The snow is really falling here. Joey has a doctor's appt. at 2 in Pgh. We are 50 miles north so we get snow although they may be getting freezing rain south of us. Have to keep an eye on this.
Grizzly did get away from me....panic time because it was almost garbage pickup. My baby is not the least bit street smart. Used some old mama's reverse psychology on him. Instead of chasing him, I walked away. LOL..confused him, and he actually came running back. This will only work a couple of times until the smarty catches on.
I've gone back through my archives...wish I could find Grizzly's story but I can't. Joey had begged me for a dog for a year after his father was out of the house. No way....then friends of ours who own Big Griz, Grizzly's father, had puppies with a dog down the street. Big Griz was a gentle giant so I agreed on the spot when Joey called me at work. He was shocked. Laura, Big Griz's mom and a dear friend from Pgh, called me a week later to ask me if I wanted to know Grizzly's bday. Sure why not....goosebumps....March 6th...my dad's bday. Joey still insists that Grizzly is a gift from his beloved grandpa; surrogate father. I have to agree.
