Easy Come, Easy Go 02.20.2011

From this:


Giovanni Antonio Pellegrini (1675-1741), The Clemency of Alexander The Great (356-323 BC) in Front of the Family of Darius III (d. 330 BC), circa unknown

Louise Jeane Francois Lagrenee a.k.a. l’Aîné, The Death of the Wife of Darius III, circa 1785

Back to me...

To this:

What happened?! One week I am luxuriating in blankets of fluffy white snow in balmy zero degree weather, then a week or so later it is a hot 70 degrees and not a snowflake to be found. I suppose Spring is anxious to make its arrival, but I woof, "not fair!" It is still Winter and I think Spring needs to learn some patience and let Winter finish itself out. Now if Spring wants to encroach on Summer's time, you won't hear any woofing from me. I'm just sayin'...

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Wow! It was even warm enough for Porgy! Sorry, my friend, I understand your sense of loss...we still have snow on the mountains, but as you know I am happy with a little and then on to running in the grass!

Remington said...

Oh dear! We just got a huge shipment in....I'll try to get some to you soon, my friend!

Parsley said...

I know you love the sno. That's what all that fur is for. You'll enjoy the spring too. Lots of things to bark at.

Jon Terry said...

What a great title for your post,i totally agree with it. Having this kind of mentality always brightens the day. Suka, one of the things that i love about you is that you're always adaptable,strong and always moving forward in and out season. Keep it up, my dear friend!

So happy to see Porgy is enjoying himself there.

Love ya & K too,
Jon Terry

Hey there Suka, Silvius, Porgy and KrisAnne.
It's so wonderful to see snow pictures like that - no wonder you are pining for the snow. I must say that there is a twinge of 'coolness' in our air too - which means that our winter is just around the corner too. Each day brings its own beauty - enjoy each one :)
I just love all your rescue/stray stories - you are a family which has been 'brought' together and it gives me a lump in my throat.
Sending lotsaluv to you all and thanks for coming by our blog too.

Oh Suka...we will keep our paws crossed that you get atleast one good snow storm before spring.

Oh, sweet Suka, no snow??? We still have some, although it's starting to show some brown grass in spots. Love the pic of you with your face buried into the snow. It's still early, our friend, we can still do the snow dance! Ready? One...two...three...More snow! More snow!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Some snow is falling at my house,, I will go out and blow some your way. It will make you smile, I am sure.

Joan said...

Oh My Goodness - talk about a complete turn around. But then we received a complete turn around, too - the opposite. We now have tons of that white stuff that vanished from your neck of the woods. Maybe we can UPS some to ya! They have big trucks - how much do ya want?? (Awesome photo of the pretty bird - is that a parrot? Very pretty indeed.)

Huffle Mawson said...

Sorry Suka :( Maybe next week you will get some surprise snow?

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Be sure to stop by my blog and wish Quinn, The Other White Dog a happy First Gotcha Day...every comment earns $$ for charity.

Holly and Khady said...

We went through the same thing, and finally got some more snow last night. I have been luxuriating in it quite a bit!

I sure hope you get more!


Amber-Mae said...

Gosh it's amazing how fast snow disappears! Must be depressing for you. I hope it comes back soon.

Peggy Frezon said...

Looks like you sure do enjoy the snow. Personally, I can't wait for spring. Not too close yet here in NY.

Peggy Frezon said...

p.s. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and the nice comments. I'm glad you liked the bumper sticker, I bet you get lots of hugs!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Suka, you and K and Porgy and Sivius are like family to us. You fill a very special part of our lives. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such kind words for my brother's Gotcha Day. It meant so much to him!

Suka what a contrast between the snow pics and the no snow pics. In the last pic and beimg 70 degrees at least you had a puddle to soak and cool off your feet....
Not the same as snow though. Thanks for stopping by & visiting us. We enjoy your visits.
Happy Wags
PeeEss: We like your name Suka. What does it mean & how did you get such a special name??
