Six Word Saturday — Contest Winner — Ice and Snow

My happy (not) cold weather friends
[my six words for SixWord Saturday]

You might think these guys look happy. Well they are not happy. They just love the nippy outside weather but hate to wear hats to protect their heads.
Our dogs have seen snow before but at their ages they don't like to walk in it. Adi used to love to play in the snow.

We didn't have Katrin the last time it snowed but as you see here she would just as soon not walk in it. Not even the small amount of snow we had.

It seems like we have had half a dozen of these Canadian cold waves come through this winter. I blame it all on global warming. Consequently I foresee an even hotter summer than what we had last year.

Now to the "Count the Dog Biscuits in the Jar Contest" (link)

Congratulations to Lisa Ricard Claro (

She was only off by 16; I put 216 dog biscuits in the jar. I had dumped in the whole box (you've got to remember, they were puppy biscuits).

Happy Golfing Buddy — MidWeek Blues — Contest Winners

Meet Jim R. Congratulations, Jim!

Jim made a hole-in-one yesterday while we were playing at Raven Nest. This is a college golf course at Huntsville, Texas, belonging to Sam Houston State University.

It was a par three hole and Jim put the ball into the hole with his seven iron hitting it 137 yards from the tee box.

College golf courses are nice and handy for the students (and faculty). San Jacinto College where I taught has a nice nine-hole course. I would play there several times a week after work. We had no facility for riding carts so most everyone pulled a little two-wheel cart that held the bag. Some carried their bags on their backs.

Jim and Don A. rode together. Some golfers are superstitious although neither Jim nor Don are. Nevertheless they hope to continue riding together as Don also had a hole-in-one a few weeks ago while they were cart mates.

I might add that this golfing group consists of a bunch of fellows from Mrs. Jim's Sunday school class of which I am an associate member.

Generally there are about twelve of us playing. This Tuesday we had only seven as the weather was pretty tough. The temperature was 33°F when we started at nine in the morning. And the cool wind was blowing all day between 15 and 25 MPH. (In the summer the grass is green but now it is brown.)

Once again the clock showed 2:32.

Joey couldn't help but think Joel 2:32: "And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved."
