Merry Christmas

It has been raining all day and I am grateful, so grateful, because it is the closest thing I'll have to a white Christmas.  Friends and family have been coming and going all day.  We've just returned from wishing our neighbours a happy Christmas and our clothes are damp and pleasantly cool from nipping outdoors.  Everything is prepared for tonights dinner with friends and we've moved our Bobby into the lounge, so that he, too, can be part of the celebrations.  He is starting to move around more and more.  Here is a picture of him next to the tree.  6 days ago, he couldn't move and we had to periodically turn him from side to side.  Now, he is lying like "Frogman".  The Machinist has to follow him around with a disposable nappy, so that he doesn't pee on the carpet.  He is our Christmas miracle....

Merry Christmas to you all.  Good will to each other...

With love,
The Machinist's Wife

Glad you're enjoying the rain - I like it too.
Over here (Wales) we had snow yesterday morning (early hours) - about 2 or 3 inches - followed by freezing fog all day.
Today we've had a bright day with temps up to 3c and for the next few days we're promised rain sleet snow fog and frost!

I see his dew claws, always told a dog with a dew claw could survive one of our snake bites.

A Christmas you won't soon forget. Merry Christmas!
