April 1, 2013 April Fools.......Not!
I just mentioned to a friend.....I don't have any "April Fool" jokes anymore. When I was a kid.....I think my mom got me every year. Even when I remembered it was April Fools Day......even if she had to wait a while......she'd get me. Sometimes it was something that could easily be happening; like a deer in the yard. Of course, we would come running to see the deer and hear......"April Fool!"
Sometimes....I miss some of those old tricks!
That same day I was out and took the above photo....I got back to one of the ice caves that was so neat too. The snow was melting down and it was kind of wet inside.....but, now I could get all the way in to it, not just Toby. I was inside of there, taking some neat photos of the view looking out. It wasn't a big contrast thing since it was foggy......but, it still had the neat turquoise color inside and less icicles to bump my head on. They wouldn't have been as showy as the last time I was barely in the entrance looking out. But.....I was in....all the way to the now also bigger back. After I got out, I had Toby come in and he did and laid right down where I asked him.....no problem. I took about a dozen photos from inside and then from outside looking at Toby laying back in there.....and.....they were all solid black! Boy, was I perturbed. The "best" stuff of the day....not there. I still have absolutely no idea what happened or what I could have possibly done. I had shut the camera off while I got out and Toby got in .....the cave! So....what the heck!! I could go back and try it again, on the chance that it is still there. But, as windy as it was yesterday, who knows. Stuff was breaking off right and left. I saw a big ore boat coming at an angle towards shore yesterday too.....as we headed over to my brother's place for Easter Potluck. That was some fierce wind!
This morning, with 15 degrees out after several days of 40 + degrees and some rain thrown in, we had snow as hard as concrete. It was such a fun time out going wherever we wanted on top of the snow. Toby hasn't experienced this all that often. But, he sure was enjoying it today. No wallowing around in belly deep snow.....just go, explore....enjoy. We had a wonderful walk to start the day. The sun is trying and it is only partly cloudy out there.....so, maybe it won't get all that warm today. That might mean an afternoon walk to meander wherever we darn please too. I'll hope!
