Snow on the Roof

Makes Icicles
We’ve had some snow, and now some icicles are hanging from the gutter. We very seldom ever had icicles before we had the Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters. Here’s a picture of some of our icicles.


We’re glad for the warmth inside the home these days. It makes you wonder how the little birds and animals survive. Reminds me of this poem my sister, Mary, wrote some time back.

        I Wonder Where They Are Tonight

     When it’s cold and dark and deep,
     I wonder where the squirrels sleep.
     Are they safe and warm and sound,
     When night shades have fallen down?

     I wonder if the birds are warm,
     If perchance ‘twould come a storm,
     I hope that they can safely rest,
     In their little leafy nest.

     I look out on the cold, dark night
     ‘Tis such a dark and lonely sight,
     But God His loving hand doth send,
     And then He safely tucks them in.

                 By Mary L. White (Dec. 2006)

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
I hope you are making the best of these
cold and snowy winter days. I think it’s good
to try to accomplish something on these winter days.

Some things you might consider: catch up on your reading, write some letters to your friends and loved ones, plan your vacation, learn how to do something, educate yourself, plan for things you want to do or accomplish when the seasons change, do some organization of your room or closet, etc.

Joke of the Day

A man in North Carolina had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road, and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it. Then he got back in the car to wait.

A passerby studied the scene as he drove by and was so curious he turned around and went back. He asked the fellow what the problem was.

The man replied, "I have a flat tire."

The passerby asked, "But what's with the flowers?"

The man responded, "When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back. I never did understand it neither."
