Howdy boys & girls! Scrubbie here. How is everyone doin?
So - Scrub couldn't write yesterday - he was busy. Ya see - it was the Wife's birthday yesterday!
Sing with me kids: Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday darlin' wi-ife! Happy Birthday to Youuuuuuu!
Listen - sorry to brag - boast - rub it in... but Scrub is one lucky pup. The Wife - she's all that and even more. I just lov'er.
See - there's this thing. About the Wife. And her birthday.
I should back up a little here.
The Blog gods all seem to agree that leadin' yer readers astray is blog-death. Ya can't be givin' them the gears. Tellin' fibs. Ya know - bangin' on the keyboard and just spinnin' tales. Nope. Can't do it.
Scrub's gotta fess up a bit. I may have implied...or suggested...that here in the Great White...we are always...perpetually...constantly...knee deep...in the fluffy white stuff...snow. Well - not entirely true. *Scrub hangs his head in shame.
Shure - there are parts of the Great White that are a tad on the chilly side a little more often than other parts. But - it's a big country. And, we are kinda on the part of the globe that creeps ever so close to the North Pole. Ya gotta expect that parts of the Red and White are a bit chilly. But, in Scrub's part of the Great White - we do in fact... *gulp... have sunshine and bare ground now and then.
Phew - confession is good for the soul.
And, this time of year, Springtime... the fluffy white melts away, birds return, dog sleds get put away - ya know - Springtime.
It's downright beeeuteeeful 'round these parts.
Scrub don't even need a coat and mukluks when headin out to the local trading post!
The last few days - downright balmy!
Ok - so back to the Wife. And her birthday.
There is this phenomenon. No matter how beautiful it may be. Outside. In the days leading up to the Wife's birthday. (It's been up to almost 20 degrees 'round here lately. For you in the Red White and Blue - in Fahrenheit that's like... ummmm... I dunno - dang close to summertime hot!) Come April 4th - snow. Snow. SNOW.
Hey - Scrub's not leadin' ya astray, or givin' ya the gears, or tellin' fibs. He's not bangin' on the keyboard just spinnin' tales. Nope. Check this out from the Environment Canada Website:
