Well Amigos, welcome to the Sunny South or as we’ve been calling it since the Flood of Fifteen in October, the Poor People’s Pacific Northwest. The old woman Slow considers herself to be the current Casa de Canterbury residential expert on weather in the Pacific Northwest since she lived in Seattle, Washington for three years before she moved to South Carolina. So every once in a while she mutters something like I might as well be living in Seattle if I’m never going to see the sun again until spring to which Pretty replies oh you are just given to high per bow lee about the weather anywhere and everywhere.
The Red Man would love to know who Highper Bowlee is because one of them is always telling the other one they are being given to him. Then they laugh about it like it’s some kind of a joke if you’re being given to Highper Bowlee. They don’t laugh about Harper Lee or the recently departed David Bow-ie or even the legendary Butch Cassi-dy and the Sundance Kid….where did that come from…but they get a kick out of Highper Bowlee. Of course, everyone knows Pretty and Slow are easily entertained by themselves but rarely play well with others.
As a matter of fact, if you take away movies at the Nickelodeon and the Lady Gamecocks basketball games and the Business Guild meetings once a month, these two pretty much lay so low they’re practically cave dwellers. That’s why the Pack of Casa de Canterbury were all so pleased to have three of our favorite peeps drop by to play Shanghai Friday afternoon: War Eagle Nan, Robin and Donna Too Good – and even happier to know that Pretty won the money. Show us the money, Pretty. Heh, heh. My little joke for the day. Pretty is not likely to be showing us the money anytime soon.
But apparently she plans to spend some of her money this afternoon on lunch and a movie which means The Red Man will be left with Tennis Ball Obsessed Chelsea who is still zonked from her chemo on Thursday and Fence Jumper Spike who I wish someone would give to Highper Bowlee but no such luck. Ho hum. The Red Man will catch up on the Australian Open, the Lady Gamecocks basketball game with Mississippi State, and the NFL Championship games today while Slow and Pretty are gone. As a matter of fact, good riddance. I’d like to be in charge of programming at Casa de Canterbury this afternoon anyway.
Meet you at ESPN, SEC network, and CBS sports networks this afternoon, Sports Fans – BYOB or in my case BYOT(reats). We’ll have a ball – as a matter of fact, we’ll have the best time ANYBODY could EVER have ANYWHERE in the world. Oops – I hope I’m not going to be given to Highper Bowlee.
Get me outta here Percy, The Red Man better have his wits about him in case Highper Bowlee shows up looking for him in the cold and “unsunny” South. Kind of like The IceMan Cometh and everybody worries about that.
Don’t worry Red. Highper Bowlee has taken up residence somewhere along the Mason Dixon Line where he, High Tide and North Easter are playing a wicked game of Bridge (or is that Wash Out the Bridge?) with Old Man Winter. Watch some tube and nap. What else is there to do.
We two are amusing ourselves by taking bets on when will Ma dig out the Jeep to check on the pampered Doctor. Just go, Ma. That heavy sighing is almost two days old. Ponies!!
Love and hugs from the hyper-cold North!
Miss Pops and Co.
OMG, we have heard horror stories of the winter weather in Pennsylvania right now and heartily agree with your watch some tube and nap recommendations!! What else is there to do except listen to Ma’s heavy sighing which must be shamelessly heaping guilt on all concerned…shit house mouse…Poppy, we are thinking of you and hoping for warmer weather to melt the snow around the jeep!! We have a feeling the pampered Doctor is surviving better than your Ma is!!! 🙂

As you know by now, the Doctor thrived in the blizzard, enjoying running and bucking like a colt. He was, however, as relieved to see Ma as she him. Candy canes!!! The Liver Snaps of the horse world. 😀
If only I had known about the candy canes when I lived in TExas!! The Liver Snaps of the horse world – now that’s powerful candy. So glad the Doctor enjoys the cold weather…you can probably keep him supplied with that for a few months!! 🙂
Did it snow a lot? I’m wondering how the Red Man gets out in the snow, if so. I’ve seen one or two funny dog and snow memes online in the last couple of days! I hope TBO Chelsea is doing well . . . .
Hey Luanne, thankfully it did not snow much at all, but it may not be over yet. The Red Man has enough trouble getting around inside the house on a good day, much less trying to get out in snow which wouldn’t be possible. Our current problem is trying to keep him from negotiating the stairs by himself. He struggles, falls, struggles,falls but miraculously hasn’t broken any part of his little Energizer Bunny Body.
TBO Chelsea and The Red Man both keep going the best they can…which is what we all do!!
Thank you so much for checking on them!

Sounds like they both WANT to keep going. They manage to enjoy their lives. Little heartbreakers.
It must be so hard to watch him struggle like that, but what a feisty little guy. And so hard to have two of them on that road. I am waiting to hear today about daughter’s cat (one of my grandcats). She’s only 5 but had a cancer a couple of years ago and it’s a type that does come back and in different places on the skin. Last night D saw a fairly large sore on her kitty’s face and she will try to get her in to the vet today. Now we’re all worried and hope she “just” hurt herself.
Ahhhh…how we love our furry friends and family and how difficult it is when they are “just” hurting themselves. All of us at Casa de Canterbury will be sending good wishes to your daughter’s cat. We don’t like for anyone to be ill, either. Please keep us posted…
Winter or Momwithoutpaws calls it Wine-ter we do not get much sun. Dadwithoutpaws bought her a SAD light so she does not run with a knife in her hand after him.. Woof!
Wine-ter – gotta love it Momwithoutpaws is on the right track, and we laughed out loud about the SAD light!! Woof is right!! 🙂
