You know how to tell..
My ears are straight up.

MoM took this last Friday during our
Sleet and ice event
It was glistening when Mom took the picture
I don't think she could get any closer because she was afraid
she would fall and bust her chin wide open.
(MOL, she says this all the time when I jump
finally I can say it to her)!!

BREAKING NEWS (literally)
We had about 1/2 " ice Friday night, pictured above.
Saturday morning at 9:30 my 83 year old 
Grandpa decided it was a good idea to got out
to get his paper down his steep drive way.
We don't know why he thought this was a good idea.
BECAUSE it was not!!
He fell and slid down the drive way.
He had lots of scratches on his legs, shin and chin.
He also hit is nose and caught himself on is hand.
Yesterday he found out his right hand and nose are broken.
He is very lucky it was no worse than it is.....

My grandpeeps have a home health aide  24/7 but there 
are some things she cannot like bills, groceries etc so Mom will be in and out. Mom has several post  pre set for posting but our
commenting and visiting will be scattered about. 
We will keep you updated.


  1. Oh those ice storms are terrible. It is BEST to stay inside until it melts away. I hope the Grandpa is OK and heals up soon. Oh and I like your happy face.

  2. We just love your crystal chandelier bird feeder *BOL* - nature sure can be arrrrotiful sometimes.

    We are sorry to hear about your Grandpa - we hope he heals up fast!!

    Wally & Sammy

  3. Madi, the ice pictures are so pretty, even if it is that scary icy stuff. It is pretty to look at. I am sorry about Grandpa and I will keep paws crossed for him so he gets better.

    Loveys Sasha

  4. Woof! Woof! Sending lots of Golden healing thoughts to your grandpa. Be careful to your mom too especially on driving on icy roads. We will be away too for a couple of days (just posted our last post for the month of Jan). Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  5. Oh no not broken bones! I'm so sorry to hear that you have had another health issue with your parents. I'm glad they have the aid, but I'm sure you will have to help out a bit more now too. Millie will keep her paws crossed that everything heals soon.


  6. The crystal chandelier feeder is down right ritzy! We think the little birdies felt very special eating there. Of course they were probably happy to have the cover over their heads.
    Sorry to hear about your Grandpa Madi. We hope he gets better soon and doesn't make any more trips down the slick driveway.

  7. Miss Madi, Your crystal chandelier looks so pretty sparkle ! Just love it : )
    and I still purring for your Grandpa.

  8. Your grandpa is very lucky he was not hurt any more than he was! I am sending him some healing purrs - do let us know how he is doing.

  9. Oh dear Breaking News indeed. We hope GP is ok and makes a speedy recovery. The ice looks scary. Stay safe and no worries we will see you when we see you. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  10. Oh noes! Poor Grandpa. We're glad the injuries weren't more serious though the broken nose and hand is pretty bad! We're sending lots of healing purrs to him.

  11. Sending your Grandpa some comforting woofs

  12. That is a pawsome picture of the bird feeders! But we are so sorry to hear about Grandpa. Believe me, Mommy can totally relate! (Mom said she will reply to your Mom's e-mail when she gets a few quiet moments. And we all know that Grandpa Bob keeps her on her toes so it may be a day or two.) Madi, please give your Mom a big hug from my Mom and tell her to hang in there!

  13. Gee, your G-Pa really keeps your Mom hopping with all his antics, doesn't he? Hope he is better soon! Maybe Mom could use some roller skates to get things done quicker? Just a thought.
    Lovies, Miss Mindy

  14. Grandpa's care must come before all of us. We hope he has a speedy recovery.

    Our Lady's grandpa once thought that doing roofing work on the hottest day of the year was a good idea when he was 75. We think older people can be stubborn!

    Take care.

  15. oh i am so sorry your gran pa fell, not a good thing. you should have told him what mom tells you, be careful or you will fall. i have never seen ice umbrellas, they are really cool. and tell Mom i like that lamp and the chest it is sitting on... and of course the ears up smiling face

  16. I hope your grandpa feels better soon! All that ice can be skeery.

  17. Madi, please give grampy a talking to. We have our paws crossed for him. We think those are attack ears
    Have a fun day
    Benny & Lily

  18. Your crystal chandelier is simply gorgeous. How awful about your grandpa! Hoping he heals real quick.

  19. Oh NO! I am so sorry to hear about your grandpa.... That ice is dangerous....

  20. Oh better to stay at home if you have such a bad weather... All my best wishes to your Grandpa - hope he feels better soon. Stay warm and cosy Madi&Mom ;o)

  21. OH how FANCY SCHMANCY... a Crystal Chandelier fur your Bird's Dining Pleasure. Gorgeous... butt that ICE is Scary.

    So sorry about your grandpa's FALL. You take good care of your MOM so she can take care of her dad. Don't worry... we all understand how busy you are right now.

  22. Love the picture of the bird feeders. Sorry about the silly Grandpa. Bet he is hurting and maybe he won't try to walk around again on the ice. Madi, tell Mom to take it easy for a minute.Sending our best purrs and thoughts to everyone. Take care.

  23. Oh no, I hate hearing that about grandpa. Gosh o mighty, he could have been hurt a whole lot worse.

  24. Oh no poor grandpa. Please tell your mum not to worry and to take care.. Hugs GJ xx

  25. Oh poor Grandpa and poor Mom now.. Just when things were looking better. Love the ice photo's, they are fantastic. Big hugs Mom xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  26. Oh no, we are glad your Grandpa didn't have it worse - that must have been scary. We hope he is okay. And beautiful picture of the bird feeders!

    Oink oink,
    Katie and Coccolino the mini pig

  27. We are hoping and purraying your grandpeep is doing better! Ice is very lovely, but oh-so dangerous. Stay inside and stay warm sweet Madi (and Mom!). Hope those 70 degree temps get there soon. Stormy here. Have a great day. xoxoxo from your BFFF, Prancer Pie.

  28. All paws crossed for your Grandpa. Poor Mom, so much to deal with.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  29. Oh your poor gramps! We hope he heals quickly!

    Your Snowy pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  30. Oh dear Madi, we are very sorry. Our HGD had a bad fall last September so we know how it is. It can take the older folk a long time to get over these things. We do hope he is healing well. Probably no use telling him to take extra care and stay indoors though (based on our experience...)
    Toodle pip!

  31. How horrible. We all are sending our best purrs to your Gramps.

  32. Oh Noes! Crap. I hopes your Gpa is better! Oh, man, just when he was gettin' all good and everythings! Geesh. I'll be keepin' my paws crossed for him. {{hugs}} to you and your Moms!

  33. Oh dear! Sorry your grandpa took a spill!

    I think it is funny that your mom tells you you are gonna bust your chin wide open! I am glad she did not hurt herself trying to take a picture though - that would have not been good!

    I am glad you have "happy ears" in the first picture - you are so lovely!

  34. We are sending purrs for your Grandpa. Our mum doesn't like venturing out any more than she has to when it is icy. The icy pictures are pretty. Oh, and so are your happy ears.

  35. Madi, glad to know which is your happy face, since you can't smile! :)
    Oh wow, that ice crystal chandelier is so beautiful!
    And we are glad Mom didn't hurt herself getting the pic of the frozen Maple tree!
    Sure, sure, rub it in how agile you are! LOL
    Kathy & Molly

  36. OH we are so sorry to hear about Grandpa we will keep him and your Mom in our purrs Madi.

  37. Poor Grandpa. Sometimes you just forget that you can't do some things with ice!

    We love the icy fingers of your Maple tree.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  38. OMC, Madi! We are purring for your grandpa and hope he heals quickly.

  39. Ice is very pretty to look at sometimes but dangerous to be out in. Sending prayers and good wishes that Grandpa recovers quickly. He's very lucky it wasn't worse.

  40. Oh my Madi, hope all will be well and he heals quickly! Us humans sometimes just refuse to begin our day without our morning news!

  41. Oh Dear! Wes will be purraying for your grampa (why does humans does what they do?)


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
