Well we bought a car a year of so ago, a van to be exact. The sliding doors on the side are controlled by a litle button. I made a mistake this morning when I said we got 6" after stepping out in my tennis shoes today, I now will announce we had 10 " on the ground AND 36" INSIDE THE VAN!

Yep this guy sometime after doing into the motor home pressed the little sweet button on the key ring and opened the far door on the van, the one I could not see! YEP, filled the van with snow. SO KNOCK IT OFF SHEILA!!! You knew the door was open, admit it!

Then after cleaning the van out, and loading my sweet wife in the front seat, that I had all warm by now, I backed out and stuck the van. Yep, you know it ain't but about 6" off the ground. All I have is what we called in the USMC is an entrenching tool. So I dug it out. some nice guy came buy and helped us get the last 50' to the road. Do you know wat was at the top? Yeah I know you Yankees know. A Bigger pile of snow that the plow had pushed over MY entrance. Yeah MEL, I remember them doing that to your side walk, and I felt bad for you, but THIS IS ME WITH A DANGED ENTRENCHING TOOL!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA (on me).

So now I must go buy a BIG BOYS shovel so I can get the motor home out.

Johnny is holding his own but still in critical condition. The heart operation was successful. It is now his lungs, he is fighting Pnemonia(?).
Prayers are appreciated. Also pray that this snow will melt at 16 degrees, is that possible????

Gotta run thanks fr all your prayers and support.

I am really sorry you are so tormented by the snow, deep for you, and getting full of it without those winter boots. Take your time with that shovel. You don't want to end up in a bed next to Johnny. Our deepest prayers are with him, as well as you and Sherry. Get some rest. The snow will melt before the week is up. Be careful out there and God will take care of the rest.

Our winter weather is bad right now. I'm sure it is like a nightmare for you. Glad the surgery went well but am praying that the pneumonia will go way so he can get better. Take care in all that snow...I don't think we are to get any melting here in Ohio this week. Only getting more snow. Hope you have some boots!

I am ready for the snow to be done, snowed here two inches today. Keeping your BIL in my thoughts.

It's good to hear that you & Sherry made it there safely and that are able to spend time with Sherry's brother. I hope and pray he has a full recovery. Be careful shoveling that snow, we sure don't want to hear that you've been hospitalized too.

Love & Hugs

My goodness you're still getting yourself into messes? Be careful you got precious cargo there (Sherry). Still praying for Sherry's brother.

My prayers are with you and Sherry. Be careful
in the snow. Don't think anyone has any plans
to move to snow country. Hope the snow melts.
Praying for sunshine.

I couldn't resist once I knew the van door was didn't cost much to bribe the snowplow driver to push that pile of snow up to your entrance either...ha. Sending up prayers, Sheila

Melanie said...
