I am listening to the piece below and watching snow drift down outside my window. It's perfect.

Evening, y'all. According the various weather god, the sun has just set out here in the desert. Temps soared up into the low 70's today but we'll try to endure the unendurable with no complaints (those are saved for the summer)

(btw, someone has done some serious damage to Sara's cookies -- wipes crumbs off fingertips to keep typing -- no accusations much less denunciations, just telling it like it is)

Hope all is well with all, and to all, a goodnight. ;)

Good day. The fresh coffee is on the stove percolating away. Hot water is ready. Nice weather outside. Now let's get to the day and see what we can make of it.

Morning, Larry. That was a most inspiring message making it perfect for 'Inspirations'. My problem is instead of trying to make something of another melancholy Monday. I tend to wind up trying to avoid the consequences. ;)

Thanks for the coffee. it' much needed in a critical, life-sustaining sort of way and is much depreciated.

Rub Vic's ears and tell him it's coming from me and I'll do the same for you with a certain terrier.

Later -- unless y'all get lucky. glasses8

Morning to all Spacey Spacers. Coffee is ready, willing and able to get you going.

Sara, dog-wise, what infests our place is a Tibetan Terrier -- that came from the Austin Animal Shelter. She and four other litter mates were discovered looking for a good time in downtown Austin.

Best way to find out what they look like is to look up a photo with Google images. That what I had to do having never heard of the fool things.

As to why no photos etc., well, when we first got her I could still see a bit but by now I've given up on that seeing foolishness which makes taking pics and messing with them difficult to impossible. BTW, Her name is 'G. G.( as in 'Gorgeous Girl).

The Wiki entry on Tibetan "Terriers", which apparently aren't terriers at all, but rather are part of the Asian lineage that includes the Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso. Lot of pictures in there so hopefully one of them resembles Rump's.

Good morning. Putting the kettle on. Anyone else for tea? And I hit the local Dutch bakery up for some of their legendary fritters. Apple, Blueberry, Cherry, and Lemon are on offer.

Hello, all. It is snowing here. I think it is supposed to snow all day long. It will be a challenge for the pup to go out in it. Me, too.

We have our Arabica coffee hot and ready to drink if anyone wishes to partake.

Greetings and thanks to Sara for the cookies. Who knows, with luck there may even be a few left. ;)

Coffee's on and it ain't too bad, honest.

My word, that's a range and a half of cookies, Sara!

Bill, GG sounds like a sweetheart!

And I'm sure Victor isn't very keen on the snow, Larry!

I'll gave a ginger and lemon tea before bedtime here, and I might snag a cookie with it. :)

Morning and a happy Valentine's Day to both lovers and the loved. Coffee's on and it ain't that bad, honest.

Sara, just occurred to me that it might be fun to work up a story where Vic visits Scamp and company.

Curvy, hope you didn't take too many cookies, last night. (checks jar) Whew, plenty left. ;)

Y'all don't forget the writing challenge and have a great weekend.

Good morning, all. Very good coffee, Bill. The temperature is 7F/-14C degrees. Really too cold for me and the pup.

We're staying in most of the day, I think.

Don't forget that Victor and Mr. Larry visited with Miss Emily in the last adventure about the moon spaceship. But they did not get to play with all of the farm critters.

Time for afternoon tea, now.

Since this is a column also about inspirations, I just finished Denim Angel's stories and poems. There is something "magic" in her writing. It is always something that makes me either smile, or makes me reverent. She is quite an inspiration! Now what is this I hear she bakes ginger cookies? Lawwwdy, Lawwwwdy, Miss Clawwwwdy!!
I am just gum-smacked!

Happy Monday, everyone!

Storm Dennis is still blowing away outside, but should calm down later - so we only have 40 mph winds due for the rest of the week!

However, there's no complaining since we've been very lucky. Those poor people flooded out in Wales, Yorkshire and other areas have really had it tough! :(

I'll grab a coffee here. :)

Good day, Cynthia. Always fresh coffee here. And the water is always close to boiling for a pot of tea.

Stormy weather seems to be the cover story around the world now.

I'll be submitting a poem for the Love & Affection challenge this morning. I hope it meets the criteria.

Morning, Curvy, Larry and, of course, Vic. Bless y'all for the coffee and/or not drinking it all. Got an emergency shipment of sausage biscuits from the neighborhood 'What-A-Burger'. They come highly recommended.

Got seven stories cued up so I might have to break down and do a little honest moderating. (sigh)

Keep on keeping on, youse guys.
