    I'm jealous! You know, we did get snow in Dallas, TX but not a lot...mostly ice storms and they were bad. Seemed like at least once a year in the beginning of December, we'd always get an ice storm.

    My goodness! I am the lucky one, am I not. That's simply terrific! Thank you, m'Lord, once again. I guess I'm just a random kind'a guy.

    As for snow, no thank you. I had enough of it in Wisconsin for some 26 years. My old man, bless his heart, did not buy a snowblower until I left home. There was about thirty feet of the 100-foot driveway that had two buildings parallel with it. Thus, I had to move some 50 square feet of snow to one end or the other to shovel that driveway. Nope. Don't miss the snow.

    I can feel for you. My grandfather's driveway was the same thing except for a house and fence right next to the drive. All these years later I can still feel the weight of the wet snow as I trudged shovelful by shovelful to the end of the drive to dump them.

    Was that a fish making the splash, or a cormorant?

    Thank you, all! For not calling me an idiot or mathematically impaired. That's more like 600 square feet. I don't know where I got 50 square feet. And yes, @Nyatii, I too have muscle memory of carrying shovel fulls of wet snow to the backyard or the front yard - either way, generally twenty steps (yes, I counted and still remember).

    And I too would like to know what made that splash in your photo, @Penguin who like coins!

    Christmas in September! Or my birthday (when I was five and under). That's how I feel when I open the mail box and see that telltale return address label on an envelope! Thank you, @lordmarcovan, very much! I don't know if I should upload a photo since what I received is what is pictured at post #1. But here it goes!

    Yay! Thanks for the update! I'll lock the doors on this thread now.

    PS- I think your photos might've been a tad better than mine. ;)

    BTW, if anybody is reading this on September 29, I just posted the October giveaway (#61), a couple of days early. And in a couple of days, we'll be doing the drawing for the September pick-your-prize contest (#58).
