Starting a New Week.........
I share this ornament every year because of its good design. I like that it replicates the early American time period of child's riding horse on wheels. The little bear on its back tends to blend in with the horse but he is used to hold a gold ring for the hanger. Hallmark did a great job with this one. I didn't live the era of the wooden riding horses but I have seen enough of them to appreciate their memory.
Fireman are sitting together have a hot coffee while another guy is running off to deal with a small fire. I like the two story building with a bay window. Inside is an old fashion fire wagon on wheels.
Barney is busy catching up on his sleep. He has had problems with the weather as his front paws get frosted from the severe cold. He wants to walk his longer distances and then realizes halfway out the his front paws are burning. I deal with his stubborn habits and force him to take shorter trips. I still had to get him up last night as he decided he couldn't walk any farther and just laid down in the front yard. I encourage him to run back to the house and he does do it. I know he has lost some weight but I don't really want to carry home a half a block away. Today we will warm up to 27 degrees F. I am hoping his paws can tolerate those temps.
It is Monday, so the week is a fresh new slate. We will write things down and get this holiday done. I heard a person say on tv that the good people can get twice as much done in a short period and still survive. I hope we are good enough. By Wednesday thing should look better and maybe we can relax by Friday. I hope everyone in the central United States will now warm up to normal temps. It will be welcomed to get back up above freezing. Thank you all for stopping by today.
