Mom had Memere working like (dare I say it) a dog Sunday. She is such a slave driver. However, to be truthful I must tell you that Memere enjoyed every minute of it. lol

First, PlusOne wrapped the first chair's cello in packing tape. He used a lot!
When that didn't cause a big enough headache, he waited a day and then tried again.
This time with plastic saran wrap like wrapping, covered by pink duct tape, covered by MORE plastic wrapping.
Mom thinks PlusOne ought to beware revenge. lol

Lucky has decided to go on strike. She is not interested in any more cold weather. She is not interested in any cold wind, breeze or draft. She wants temperatures above 50 degrees F and she is not going to move until she gets them.
It was warmer yesterday, and the snow IS melting, but it certainly is taking its time. I would like to point out that Lucky gets carried everywhere by her
slave boy, PlusOne, so why she should be worried about her feet getting cold or wet is beyond me. lol

Mom and Dad were talking about PlusOne yesterday, and how PlusOne didn't want to drive to school with his friend because his friend was doing 50 - 60mph in a 30 mph. Mom and Dad were VERY happy about that. Dad told Mom their son was a "weirdo" in a good way. Mom said the apple didn't fall far from the tree. (Mom was considered weird in high school as well).
Then Mom and Dad saw this.
"A 17-year-old from Nashua, N.H. escaped a car crash that left his car hanging 75 feet above the Merrimack River—and left an amazing image behind.
The driver lost control of his car Saturday, hit a snowbank and landed with the rear end of the vehicle dangling over the guardrail of the Sagamore Bridge, police said. Troopers cited the driver with a highway markings violation for failing to keep his vehicle within roadway markings, but did not suspect drugs or alcohol in the collision.
Then the New Hampshire Trooper’s Association posted the image on Facebook because, well, just look at it"
They are both VERY happy their son is "weird" and that he's never done this.
PS Yesterday was National Puppy Day. Check out these cute puppies. Especially the PUG!!!

Actually, it's not so much the cold as it is the wind. As mom's windsurfer brother would say "It's blowing like stink!" And it is. The garbage toters were all lying down, having fallen over, the garbage blown out of them and strewn everywhere. I am currently with whichever of my peeps who is wrapped in a blanket. I'm no fool. I don't want to get blown away!

Mom and Dad are happy to announce that PlusOne has been accepted into the New Hampshire Institute of Art. He wants to be an art teacher in the school system. He is following in the family tradition. His memere teaches art, his grandfather is a retired 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade school teacher, his great aunt earned her Doctorate in Education and taught elementary school, then taught at the college level and his mom teaches karate. Go PlusOne!

This is what the Boston Globe had to say about this winter and its EPIC snowfall.
"Yes, we have officially surpassed those 107.6 inches recorded during the Winter of 1995-1996. We have received more snow during this 2014-2015 season than any since 1872—before that, they didn’t even keep records."
Wow! I am soooo glad I do NOT live in Boston. Still, it's not like we didn't have a lot of snow here as well. sigh. Is it summer yet?

PlusOne says we have to watch this. He found it on Netflix while playing around, searching for movies with pugs. Apparently this movie tells the story of Stanley Sloane, a New York City resident who died, leaving behind twenty-two pugs.
I hope it has a happy ending for the twenty two pugs.

When Dad goes to bed at night, he takes Lucky with him. He likes falling asleep with Lucky. (Plus he goes to bed early because he has to get up early)
So lately PlusOne has decided to take me to bed, because I'm warm. Now, mind you, that's after PlusOne retrieves Lucky from Dad's better.
The only problem is that Mom does NOT like this and goes into PlusOne's bedroom to get me. She says she can't sleep without me. Yeah!

Mom has a cold. She even stayed home from karate yesterday. For mom to do that you know she didn't feel well at all. Lucky and I will continue our nursing duties until she feels better. Easy for us. We just sit on her so she can't move. lol

The definition of warm according to me is anything over 85 degrees F. (Hot is over 90 degrees F)
Nice is anywhere from 75 degrees F to 85 degrees F.
Okay is anywhere from 65 degrees F to 75 degrees F.
Cool is anything from 55 degrees F to 75 degrees F.
Chilly is 45 degrees F to 55 degrees F
Cold is anything above 32 degrees F.
Bleeping cold is anywhere from 20 degrees F to 32 degrees F.
Freezing is anything from 10 degrees F to 20 degrees F
Bleeping freezing is from 0 to 10 degrees F
Anything below 0 degrees F is I am REALLY happy I am a girl dog and I am NOT going outside for ANYTHING.
I'm not sure if it is going to be cold or bleeping cold today. I really don't feel like going outside to find out.
Can you blame me?

Mom has been staying up waaaay too late reading Anne Bishop's new novel Vision In Silver
She finally finished it last night. After she started getting a sniffly nose and sore throat. Serves her right for staying up so late four nights in a row. When she comes home today Lucky and I are going to sit on her and not let her go ANYWHERE!!!

Sometimes Lucky tries not to fall asleep. I know it sounds weird, but she sits there and when her head starts to droop she pulls herself up and starts the whole process again. Until she either falls off the sofa or mom pulls Lucky against her and Lucky finally allows herself to fall asleep.
