5-1-2013 I can't believe it's been over a year since my last post. What a slacker - yeesh!! Ü All I can say is...get ready for Update-A-Palooza!!! I'm going to get caught up by posting all the photos from the last year or so first and will then go back and journal each entry later. Ü

Deluge with a capital D

Winter made an appearance here the past few days. Well "Houston" winter anyways which means rain and temps around 50-60 degrees. Normally I shower & get ready for the day (blow dry my hair and put on some mascara - woo!) after I walk Picabo, but with the "cooler" temps this morning I got ready before we started out. The sun was actually peeking thru the clouds but about 25 minutes in - yep, exactly halfway - a cloud rolled back over the sun and it started to sprinkle. Now anyone who's been in Texas during a rainstorm knows that if it starts to sprinkle, you better get to cover quick 'cause it rarely stops there. Unfortunately for me & Pic, this morning was no different. We were able to wait out the worst of it under someone's carport - yeah, it could have been worse!

As soon as we got thru the gate of our neighborhood, I unhooked her leash and she took off like a shot.

I found her waiting on our porch shivering and looking quite put out...let's just say she's not a huge fan of water :D

Gotta love how prepared I was for rain - white shirt and, yes those are sunglasses on my head - nice!!

Probably wouldn't have bothered to "re-do" my hair but I was kind of cold myself!

Here's Mopey after I dried her off - we call it "fight the towel". Not a big fan of being dried off either.

She's waiting for the dryer to finish heating up her blanket so she can get toasty warm. Nope, she's not spoiled at all - HA!

Poor Pic~ How dare you take her out without proper rain gear on! Don't worry, I am sure tomorrow will be back up in the 90's so you can go out without getting wet! I'll send a little raincoat, booties and shower cap for Picabo just in case. Miss you guys!

All I have to say to this comment is IF I was wearing a wet t-shirt in back in the day it was from being thrown FULLY CLOTHED into Brad's pool by you and your cohorts, Donovan Lott!! Oh and M-V-H-S the best! :D

Oh and Sandra...you better bring me some bite-proof gloves to put the rain gear on...otherwise I may not have any fingers left. She's not a fan of 'clothing' either Miss you guys too!:D
