A Short Post

It was a dark and stormy night – and we know many of you out there know what we are talking about.  The winds are howling, the rains are pouring, and we lost power.  Thus, this post is going to be very brief (conserving laptop battery and who knows how long the laptop cellphone card will work).

Plus we are preparing for a little adventure starting tomorrow.  Anyone want to guess what this face means (long time readers should know):

Cheesewhiz face!

Yes, that means we are cranking up the S-RV – Siberian Recreational Vehicle – for a long four day weekend of camping.  The storms are supposed to be over here by sunrise and we are headed out to enjoy a nice weekend.

Oh – – of course we will be posting pictures from our camping trip.

*****     *****     *****     *****     *****

6 a.m. update – The sun is rising on a clear, calm morning and the power is back on at the house.  So, time for us to load up the RV.  Our hearts go out to Alabama and everyone else in the path of yesterday’s storms.

    Those storms were horrible and we, too, send White Dog woos of comfort and strength to those facing the destruction left in the South.

    Have a great weekend. And please stay out of bad weather.

    Have a great time! I know that Cheesewhiz face! Fun is on the way.

    I’m glad that your storms weren’t too bad but I’m thinking of those in the paths of them as well. I think that climate change is rearing its ugly head.

    I can’t wait to hear where you ended up camping this time! That face can only mean one thing! 🙂 I hope you have a great time!

    Definitely a face that knows there’s “something in the air”, and we’re trying to be patient, but wish it would hurry up and happen. As in “God, grant me patience, but be quick about it!”

    We NEVER get sick of the Cheesewhiz face! Then again, we NEVER get sick of sibes. Dawg help us…
