We did get a couple of spring days...woke up to light snow falling this morning but it has cleared now and the sun is shinning. Temperatures are going down to -17 C to -22 C tonight. We went to Gander yesterday as I needed to load up on bird seed etc. and "the man" needed to renew his passport so had to get passport photos taken. After shopping we went to get his photos taken. He was wearing a plaid shirt with a vest over it. The photographer said that he had to remove the vest. He says "I'm not taking off my vest" and sits down on the stool. The photographer says "Sir, I'm not taking the pictures until you remove your vest". So, in a snit while still on the stool, he takes the vest off, knocking over all the equipment, knocking plugs out of the wall as well. Honestly!!!! I simply had to walk away. I looked back and the lady was trying desperately to get everything set up again. Then, said man, realized he had left his money at home. Ha! Anyway, I loaned him the money. MEN!!!

Now, on to the carpet on the steps going from the living room to the kitchen. I've put down three different lots of carpeting to date. Why....because the cats shred it and the last lot was so shredded it was embarrassing. So, yesterday I bought another nice roll of the stuff, hauled off the old piece this morning and nailed down the new one. The next order of business was to sit all the cats down and tell them that the first one to put their claws in this was going to be in real trouble, I mean REAL TROUBLE!!! Do you think they cared! I was vacuuming and when I shut it off I heard this horrible noise coming from the other end of the living room. Looked over and ....well, I'm sure you know what was going on. Claw sharpening, yes on the new carpeting.

So what else am I doing today.....dreaming of summer, lol.

Why did he have to take off his vest, surely you only have head and shoulders done for a passport??? They do show you up though don't they - I remember!

How's about having lino instead of carpet on the stairs? Or sheets of sandpaper maybe a better idea.

Jan. Well, apparently you can't wear black when getting your passport photos taken and the vest was black. Haven't a clue as to why. I had thought of lino but I'm afraid someone may slip and fall on it. lol, sandpaper! Don't think so.
