Another Winter


Walking over ice. Walking in my garden during the winter requires special attention to avoid slipping and falling. Remember Mr. Bowie, in cold temperatures, approach with caution and assume that all wet, dark areas on pavements are slippery and icy. Taking shortcuts through areas where snow and ice removal is not feasible can be hazardous.

In my opinion, ice is only welcome in a cold drink on a hot day. Thankfully I have coffee, dark chocolate, and Mr. Bowie to help me get through another winter.

  1. Mr. Bowie’s fur looks so wonderful in this photo – the subtle shades……hope he doesn’t slip! Nothing yummier than a hot coffee with a dark chocolate “chaser” (!!) on a cold day…..enjoy!


  2. Mr Bowie is fortunate in his four legs and lower center of gravity. I think he is safer in the garden than you are Herman, so yes, do stay inside with your chocolate and coffee until the danger is passed. Spring will come!

  3. Coffee, dark chocolate, and Mr. Bowie is a great combination. We have cold weather and ice and snow, and I have a newly operated-on shoulder, so I’m happy to stay inside and hibernate for a while. Watch out for that ice if you have to go away!

  4. Mom says she hates ice and so does her car. She tries to clear off some paths for us ‘cuz we do like to go out and explore, but we don’t like getting our feet full of that white stuff. Mr. Bowie, we think you should stay inside with Herman and have a hot cup of catnip tea.

    • Don’t stay out for too long, my dear friends. Get yourself some nice treats and catnip tea, of course… Good idea! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

  5. Slip slidin’ away, slip slidin’ away, you know the nearer your destination, the more you’re slip slidin’ away. Especially dangerous is carrying hot cover while walking on ice and thinking of chocolate. Be careful ;0)

    • Hey Boomdee, don’t worry… I’m staying inside to shoot the photographs! I’m not slip slidin’ away from my espresso! πŸ˜‰

  6. Coffee, dark chocolate and the company of Mr. Bowie…should help you get thru the winter.
    I checked the painting of Mr. Bowie…it is a keeper as we say here of something well done.

  7. Mr. Bowie looks like his beautiful, warm fur coat is all fluffed out to stay warm. He looks very sleek and shiny! Stay warm and dry, Herman! Daffodils are blooming here, and many other bulbs coming up now.
