How we spent the snow day

Allison and I watched the rest of Trailer park boys, then the Bronies documentary, and the first episodes of My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic.

No Brony me.

The show is cute enough, but I’m not going to swear slavish fealty to it.

Sean, Duncan and Vera stopped by, traveling via sled. A brief visit with hot chocolate and Mickey mouse cartoons was enjoyed by all.

I’m hoping the lovely snow keeps Allison home with me another day.


Snow day!

Take that, work! I get my lovely wife an extra day! 6-10 inches of snow expected.

Nice pre-birthday present, I say.
