All the other bloggers currently in southern Arizona have pictures of snow on their blogs today, so here's a picture of what I woke up to this morning. No snow here in Apache Junction, but the Superstition Mountains were really pretty.
I thought I was through with snow when I left my father's house in Pennsylvania. We got 6" one evening. My sister and I uncovered the rental car after Steve, the World's Best Neighbor, plowed the driveway.
And speaking of Steve, and wife Nancy, they had a little get-together to celebrate my father's 90th with a birthday pie. Again, it had 10 candles.
Steve also made homemade ice cream with his little motorized ice cream maker. He does this every time it snows, because he can use the snow instead of buying ice.
Someone sent my father this button, and he wore it everywhere.
My father used to be an avid stamp collector, but when he found out that he couldn't even sell them for face value, he started using them for postage. He gave my sister and I a bunch of old 22-cent stamps to double up. This is my take, but I may have to keep the CPA ones on top.
Nancy's niece did a lot of genealogy research for my father. I thought this was hysterical - my great-great-grandmother objecting to telephone pole placement in 1911, at the age of 70.
And now for the contest! I got an email from the company that does Microsoft's promotions, offering me 5 copies of the brand new 2011 Streets and Trips to give away on my blog. So I need to come up with a contest. Anyone have any ideas? Rick drew names out of a hat, and I'll do that too unless I get a better idea. The contest will be in the next post!
