Yeah, where you are it gets cold. Here, not so much. People complain anyway. Summers tend to be hot and humid and miserable. Thank God for air conditioning.

It has snowed here. It's rare, but it happens. Usually doesn't stay, melts within a day or two. Only once a few years ago did it stay longer, and then it was about two weeks before the snow disappeared. The locals have no idea how to drive in snow. Hubby and I were stationed in Germany for several years, so it's not a foreign concept.

The cats help me stay warm, anyway. In this photo, taken a couple days ago, clockwise from bottom left: Tank, Kahlua, Sam, Olivia (with laser vision active), and Velma's tail. Not pictured are Pumpkin, Pearl and Otis.

The only thing you have to do to get feline companionship around here is sit in the recliner. They come out of the woodwork.

Techaically, Bruno is not *my* dog, so the maning was religated to the kids. :P

If it were up to me, "Prince Fuzzyball"....

Bruno is a great name for a dog! Your kids picked well.

I love Binky and Bruno! Which is "the cuteness" and which is "the monster"? They both look like "the cuteness" to me!

I did get to amend his name, though. He is now "Bruno Baggins". It seems a good name, and strangely familiar.... :mrgreen:

Bruno Baggins, eh? People are so cruel to their pets. I'm partial to Ngugums for my next pet, that's nnnggggg. Very hard to pronounce, so ultimately patronizing. Oh yeah, I call my black toy poodle Bambo Baggins too, it's probably common and not that creative. In actual fact, his name is Sambo, which turns out to be a racial slur... Pretty chuffed when I found that out I can tell you, I viewed it with absolute delight.
