When Celia is Away...

... the dog will play. And so will the parents, when most of their work is done.
I wanted to use the blog title: "Buttsledding"... Jenni said "no." But the picture clearly shows buttsledding. What you as the reader may not appreciate is the blazing speed and the significant air that was obtained on the third and final run. Napoleon Dynamite would have been proud.


We had a wonderfully productive day, while Celia played with her grandparents. Jenni has a bit of "nesting" fever, so we consulted "the list" several times, and were able to make significant progress in crossing things off said list. Shelves were built, pictures were hung, paint was ... um... painted. So, we made time to take Colby out in the snow, even though it wasn't on "the list." Colby was appreciative, and is now exhausted. And we enjoyed time together, out of the house, and even shared a few laughs with (and at) each other... Laughing is good.
And so is buttsledding. And no, we don't own a sled, nor do we need one. Our butts work really well.

I presume one has to be a bit younger and maybe a bit lighter in weight than I, in order to obtain the blazing speed.
Looks like a fun week-end with lots of nesting accomplished. Wow the due date IS fast approaching....YEAH!

Andy my boy(F.Y.I.),

According to the official website of the N.B.A.(National Buttsledding Association)..."Many novice buttsledders fail to comply with safety rule #1 of buttsledding...always examine the buttsledding area for snags and outcroppings pre-snow! Numerous injuries, loss of body parts or function may occur if this rule is not followed. Lassie states that buttsledding was how Timmy fell down the open well. The N.B.A. offers buttsledding classes every fall which upon completion, award the coveted N.B.A safety badge. Don't be like the thousands of injured buttsledders who proclaim...."BADGES? WE DON'T NEED NO STINKIN' BADGES!!!!"

We adore the sounds of buttsledding here in southwestern PA. Our backyard has been christened by the neighborhood as the perfect buttsledding hill. It's now a proven fact that a skilled buttsledder can make it from the top of our backyard to the neighbors below with butt-lightening speed. Sometimes the sleds can't keep up, and are left behind our behinds.
