Snow 2010

 

 

 

I got everything I wanted for Christmas excluding a goat. The one thing I did get which wasn’t on my list is intestinal rabies. South Carolina got snow Christmas night. There’s a picture above I took with my phone out of the door as proof. That’s as far away from the bathroom I could risk going. If I was Old Yeller, I would have been locked in the shed by then. I have to conquer my rabies by Thursday because I leave for Savannah Georgia where I will dine at Paula Deen’s buttery restaurant. I’m assuming it’s decorated with butter fountains everywhere with maybe hams and pans of cornbread hanging from the ceiling. I promise to take pictures for you all. I’m going with the same two crazy chicks I went to the Outer Banks with and each are ten pounds of crazy in five pound bags and seriously, when I travel with them my sides hurt from laughing so much. They were the ones who bet I couldn’t get reservations at Paula’s last week and just to prove how awesome I am, I did. Never doubt my awesomeness, even when my body is racked with rabies.

 

Now here’s a picture of Jack enjoying a Christmas present given to him by a friend:

 

 

Jack's Bed

 

 

 

And here’s a picture taken ten minutes later after Thelma stole it:

    You should have been “locked in the shed” a loooong time ago! ;)
    I sure hope you can stop foaming at the mouth long enough to enjoy your trip to Savannah. That would like – royally suck if you weren’t well enough to go.
    *** Thanks! But not for that shed comment. HA! I am feeling better thanks- I am packing for Savannah. ~Laura

  2. Tink says:

    So I gotta know, when you called Paula’s. how do you know you weren’t talking to the janitor. And he wasn’t just sayin “Oh yeah! you can come on down!HeeHee!” I mean, I’m just sayin……and I hope youre better way before Thursday! that’s way to long to have intestinal rabies!
    *** Well, we just gotta go on faith don’t we? And just because the janitor answers the phone where you work doesn’t mean that happens everywhere. ~Laura

  3. Red December says:

    Your babies are so precious. It’s nice they share! Now if Herman got in there, that would be funny,,,, That sure looks like a cuddly bed. Hope you feel better! Was it something you ate? Did someone try to poison you? I hope Crazy Betty didn’t bake you any Christmas Cookies!
    *** HAHA Like I would eat anything from Crazy Betty. HAHA! ~Laura

  4. Princess says:

    Beautiful snow picture. We got 6 inches out here in Gilbert. It’s still here which you know is very unusual for SC. It sure was pretty. The dogs loved it. Feel better!
    *** Jack refused to go out in the evil white. I had to carry him down the steps. ~Laura

  5. Jennifer says:

    I hope you’re feeling better and I love those pics!
    *** I am all recovered today, thanks. ~Laura

  6. Given Jack’s physical attributes are closer to the ground, I can understand his reticence.
    Butter cures stomach rabies. Fact.
    *** HA! Yes, he can not stand to be cold either. I’m hoping I don’t have to rely on butter for the cure. ~Laura

  7. Tara says:

    Wow, I can’t believe SC had Christmas snow!
    *** Us either. ~Laura

  8. hoodyhoo says:

    If Paula Deen’s do-it-yourself Smithfield ham you can buy in the store is anything to go on, you’re going to eat so much wonderful-happiness-sunshine you’ll not only cure your rabies, but possibly eradicate rabies from the entire world!
    *** Oh girl we picked out our food already on her menu! I’m getting the calamari appetizer, buffet with fried chicken and trying all the side items, if they don’t have the buffet I’m getting crab stuffed shrmnp AND I’m getting dessert- Pecan pie!! We’re bring a cooler for leftovers! HAHAHA! We know how to plan a trip! ~Laura

  9. Holly says:

    That Thelma thief!!! We-hey alliteration. I think there must be something in our genes as kids, I never remember getting sick at Christmas and this year every adult I speak to seems to have been ill in some way over Christmas. It’s a conspiracy I tells ya!
    *** I think so too! I actually think it’s because I was forced to out amongst the unwashed masses to shop- even if it was just the liquor store- but there are a lot of the “unwashed” there. ~Laura

  10. Joe the Blog Stalker says:

    Were the stores out of toilet paper and milk?
    *** You betcha. ~Laura

  11. LeeAnn says:

    What I know about Paula Deen is this: one of her cookbooks fell on my foot at work and now I walk funny.
    Please break her fingers for me.
    Sincerely, Gimpy
    *** I will if she’s there. If one of her sons is there, I’ll expose my breasteses to him. Wait..what? ~Laura

  12. Yabu says:

    We got slammed with about 8 inches, which is not a lot of snow, but it is slammed for here. I had to clear a patch so Stretch could do his business.
    Did you get a coach gun?
    *** Yes, now I can ride coaches!! ~Laura

  13. garnet says:

    That Jack is just too damn cute, even as he becomes an old man.
    *** He knows it too. ~Laura

  14. Nicole says:

    I’m so glad you got better for your trip!
    That amount of snow is allowed to be pretty since it should all go away quickly ;)
    *** Yes,exactly, it’s all gone now. ~Laura

  15. Heather says:

    I’m glad you’re better! I can’t wait to see teh Savannah pics! And I’m really looking forward to theCape Fear ones!!
    ** I’m looking forward to taking them. ~Laura

  16. One crazed chick says:

    I hope your rabid intestinal thing clears up really quick. Can you imagine those “crazy chicks” trying to convince the staff at Paula Deens that they’re really you??? I seriously bet they’re the kinda people to do impersonations (and badly). You may be kicked out of Savannah forever!
    PS Remember, it’s not the pictures of Paula’s we’re looking for. It’s the broken purse straps! LOL
    *** ONLY if we get THE CARD. Ha! ~Laura

  17. Elisson says:

    The Mistress of Sarcasm (who used to be a concierge at a high-end B&B in Savannah, so she should know) would tell you to blow off Paula Deen’s tourist trap… go to Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room on Jones Street if you want the Real Thing.
    *** Hmmm…well we may have to hit that too! ~Laura

  18. Samantha says:

    I’m glad you’re better and that Thelma has a bed! lol
    *** She’s a bed thief from way back. ~Laura

  19. rdennis says:

    That Thelma is one cool Pussy!
    *** She’s a sneak. ~Laura

  20. lifeshighwy says:

    I foresee an ensuing bed war. We are having one right now as we are baby sitting my daughter’s belgian shepherd (the leaping elk), who insists on taking the little dogs beds. its not graceful when a big dog flows over the edges of a little bitty bed like a girl with a mushroom top.
    *** HA! Pictures! Yes, my animals are like bad children that never grow up. Hmmm, my mom would smile about that. ~Laura

  21. patti says:

    I can hear Thelma from here – “Cats rule and dogs drool”…
    *** Now she can open a can of whoop-ass on him pretty fast and he knows it. ~Laura

  22. nicole anne says:

    How in the hell did you get reservations at Paula’s? I tried last year and they told me there was a two year waiting list!!!!
    *** I called and asked. You can not disguise awesome even over the phone. ~Laura

  23. Jan says:

    Ain’t that just like a cat? My cats are always stealing each other’s prime spots. Endless rotation of thieves. And that’s when they’re not stealing MY spot. I can commiserate with poor Jack.
    *** THEN they try to murder you in your sleep! Or maybe that’s just my cats. ~Laura

  24. Jena says:

    hahahaa! Ya know when you don’t blog, it’s like we go thru withdraw rabies. Truth.
    Jack and Thelma are so cute! We need pics of your ‘toys’, even the dinos!
    You and Sean have that “thang called awesomeness” the funny thing is I bet J is just like me and we both don’t see it! Ha! But other people fall under y’alls influence.
    *** Actually J tells me I’m awesome all the time. He also wishes I’d tone it down a little. It’s a Nazi thang. ~Laura

  25. Erik says:

    I am sorry that you didn’t get your goat for Christmas. Damn FedEx says I can’t ship live animals!
    But it sounds like you did better than I did.
    I hate people on FB all, “I got an iPad!”…”I got a Kindle”. I got socks. I fugure that I can put the socks on my hand and take their damn iPad!
    *** DUDE, first fill the sock with a few rolls of quarters and BAM! you have an iPad. ~Laura

  26. Jena says:

    forgot to add… I am very glad you are feeling better and you better not have a relapse after plowing through the buffet and flashing boobies!
    *** Ha! Thanks! ~Laura

  27. Janie Jones says:

    Congratulations on getting in to Paula Deen’s and on having all your Christmas wishes filled… that must have been some awesome letter to Santa.
    Sorry to hear about your intestinal rabies, however, perhaps it was just your body purifying itself in preparation for your upcoming culinary adventure. Gotta make room you know…. Now all you have to do is pray your thumb rabies don’t return making it impossible to move food from plate to mouth.
    *** Thank you. OMG I hope my thumb doesn’t act up! But I’d just eat with my other hand or just rake it in my mouth. ~Laura

  28. Jena says:

    :::I hate people on FB all, “I got an iPad!”…”I got a Kindle”. I got socks. I fugure that I can put the socks on my hand and take their damn iPad!
    *** DUDE, first fill the sock with a few rolls of quarters and BAM! you have an iPad. ~Laura:::
    ZOMG! I started to choke on my lunch!
    *** Don’t choke!! ~Laura

  29. CGHill says:

    What amazes me is that you have two resident animals with distinct (if possibly feigned) animosity toward one another, and you’re the one who ends up with the rabies. What’s wrong with this picture? (Besides the lack of a goat, I mean.)
    *** I KNOW!! WTF? I don’t see any sense in it either. ~Laura

  30. mel says:

    Oh man you have got to get rid of that intestinal rabies before you go.
    *** I think I have defeated it! ~Laura

  31. Elphaba says:

    I am amazed you got reservations. The policy was that you had to have a party of 8 or more the last few times we tried; either that or you had to wait in line for three weeks, and we weren’t going to do THAT. Haven’t been able to get in since she got all famous and shit. But her food is GREAT…you’ll love it. You should also check out her brother’s fine establishment while you’re there: Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House. It is very good, and you can let your hair down there and they won’t even look at you funny. =D
    Glad the rabies is on the mend. BTW…have you ever considered getting the shot for it so’s it won’t keep coming back? Srsly!
    *** I have a new fangled rabies that lays dormat then starts attacking different parts of my body. There’s no prevention or cure. It’s a burden I bear. Sigh. And I am going to eat like a mofo when I get there. ~Laura

  32. SB Smith says:

    You picked up a “gut bug” ? That sucks happening over the holidays. Hope you feel better soon !….Bad Thelma! for stealing Jack’s comfy new bed ! Didn’t your friend realize they needed to get 2 of those beds ?
    Jack needs to boot Thelma Out !..Adorable picture of Jack all comfy in the new bed, BTW.
    *** He’s a photo ham. I am much better, thank you. ~laura

  33. Larry says:

    It was 70 degrees in J-ville FL on Christmas day and I had the top down. The next day the weather gods took their revenge, it was 36 degrees and yes, there was snow. It didn’t stick, but it was there.
    Back home in NC they got 8 inches, and I was glad to be in FL.
    Glad the intestinal rabies has quieted down. I wonder where it will crop up next?
    *** Only God knows. I hope you had a great Christmas. ~Laura

  34. Jena says:

    I hope you are fasting for the rest of the day so you’ll be FAMISHED for Paula Deen!
    *** I will be skipping all other meals that day!! Ha! ~Laura

  35. Teresa says:

    Except for the no goat part it sounds like you had an excellent Christmas! Yay!
    ** I did! yay! I hope yopu did too. ~Laura

  36. Glen says:

    Jack looks so worried. Like he knows someone is gonna kick him out into the hall and take his nice warm place. And then here comes Thelma. Dogs rock. cats just swoop in and plead the fifth.
    *** HA! I know! Cats are evil murderous assholes. I like them. ~Laura
