Cheesewhiz’s Friendly Fire Returns

Clouds drifted in yesterday in advance of a couple of days of rain prompting the Hu-Dad to re-start Cheesewhiz’s friendly fire.

After a couple of beautiful, sunny days, our normal winter pattern has returned. We expect rain—a lot of rain—over the next couple of days and may even see some brief snow toward the end of Friday night. But at least one member of The Herd was happy to see the return of the dreary weather because that meant the Hu-Dad built a fire in the fireplace again.

All a redhead wants - a fire in the fireplace.

Now with that out of the way, Cheoah doesn’t have any more requests. Except for some snacks. Ear rubs. Toes massaged. Perhaps some gentle brushing. And do something about those brothers.

Don't just stand there with the camera, Hu-Dad. Get on it.
