Hi from Marley
It has been a strange holiday season for us in the country. The last mom remembers is when everything looked pretty as a Christmas card and Marley got BOTD and then got it a second day and she was upset because it is not supposed to happen. Well, the snow was falling hard and she had to go out and that is when thing started happening. Our little village lost power and not everyone got it back at the same time. Not everyone lost it at the same time either. It was flashing off and on at our place and we shut down whatever we could, hoping not to lose it, but things went that night. Mom was in the shower when it happened. She was full of soap and she came out of the bathroom in a towel, screaming out for Dad to get the generator working so she could rinse off. By the time he got things going, the water had gotten cool and Mom was not happy when she came out of there. She started a fire to warm up the place but we were cozy warm because the bird room is taken care of. It was getting late, so with nothing much to do, no internet, no TV, Mom said goodnight to us, and went to sleep. We woke her early the next day and cheered her and Dad on while they shoveled the many inches of snow that had fallen overnight. Mom said the snow was up past her waist. It is now after Christmas... and after New Years. we DID have power the day before Christmas, but it was still doing funny things even then, so Mom would turn on the computer, sneak in a vote (except when we had no internet and no power for those few days) and turn it off again, even though we have those special UPS things, Mom does not trust them . Dad was having trouble with his computer - he could not get past the bios. Mom has already lost two hard drives when she moved, so doesn't want that happening again. We had another storm that was supposed to skip us but hit Montreal. Mom was laughing last night, since the others did nothing in Montreal. This one hit Montreal and us. Another 50 cm which is 20 inches. When will it end? We are in January and the worst is usually in January and February. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas – tell us all about it. Oh yes, we DID get treats and toys and all sorts of stuff, throughout Hanukkah and on Christmas Day. We had a boring New Years since Mom and Dad went out – her skin daughter came to visit with the rugbrats, and mom said she was glad to see them go, and if they don’t come again for another year or ten she will be happy. The daughter left things for mom to clean up after them, and mom just left it, saying she will do it another time. She made a New Years resolution, to get us on BC more often, and another to get me caught up with my thank yous – so Thank you very much for all those votes to get me in for BOTD, not once but twice! Mom made another cake and I am dropping off a big piece for you, in case you did not get one the first time. Better late than never I say.
