Driving Through Blizzards,or Double Your Fun

Several weeks ago Grandma J decided to drive to Denver.  That's right...in January.  She hadn't seen her baby girl in ages.  Her grandsons came to Texas in the summer of 2009, so she was overdue for a nice visit.  The weather was fine until the day she got there.  Then it snowed, and it snowed.....and it snowed some more.   Temperatures got into double digits below zero.  So, she drove back to Texas in blowing snow, that followed her all the way home.

This is a picture of Grandma J's baby girl and her husband.   They look like real official mountain folks all ready for a harsh winter, don't they??

It's so cute when people dress alike.  I don't mean kids, like twins or sisters for Easter....I mean couples.
Mostly you can find them in places like Walmart. 

Like this cute couple......

Or these cute couples aka Doublemint Twins X two.

This isn't too shocking to the dyed in the wool Walmart shopper because Walmart opens it's doors and arms to twos of all kinds.  

I'm soooo glad  mama was considerate enough to lay a puddle pad down under her pooches so the shopping cart wouldn't get contaminated with dog stuff......any dog stuff.   I mean, would you want to be the next customer who uses that cart?  Another reason to wash all produce as soon as you get home.

I will never, ever, be able to put produce in a grocery cart again!

I love the couple with the windpants and the ivory necklaces. I always think necklaces like the ones the men are wearing instantly scream 'I am classy' : )

I am so glad I dont shop but I am telling Toonman to make sure he bags all the produce before putting it in a cart .. and I think I wish we had a Walmart here in Manhattan so I could go there when I was depressed and get cheered up by all the funny people

Okay, I guess I missed your big return. So sorry. But, Welcome Back! Yes, I was a little worried but I won't tell you what I thought. I'm sure that you can imagine though. Oh, I got so much to tell you but my Break is over. Oh well, I guess another time!
Welcome back.

All that driving in the snow sounds like it was quite a trip! Glad you are safe.

The dogs in the cart at Wal-mart? Yikes!

Walmart...that place just attracts the weirdest people; like me. :)

Um, isn't it against health codes for Piddles and Puddles to be in a grocery store? I'm really not all that excited about someone else's dog's hair getting on my food.
