Winter Storms Polly and Quinn – Snomaggedon

Let’s all take time to welcome our new Lithuanian Troll Elsa.  Ellie is fun and wild and awesome all at once!  The Roomie was completely out of control with Ellie!

Winter Storm Polly knocked us for a loop on Friday!  It was just crazy cold, windy, rainy and snowy.  Too much weather all at once.

Mr. Nigel Murray said his cousins emailed him from the UK and they also have been having nasty weather.  Chipper just was looking for an adventure!

Bjorn told him the adventure was he could shovel out the Roomie’s car.  Yeah…he stopped smiling, lol.

He got some chopped wood from what appears to be from his cousin David’s Lumber company.  Well we are all preparing for round two with Winter Storm Quinn.  Wish us luck.


Mr. Nigel Murray – The Rain Edition

So Mr. Nigel Murray has been out and about.  Since he’s decided to go out and about it’s done nothing but rain.

It may have rained but he said it was great to get outside 🙂

Christmas Fun – Part 2 – A Christmas Carol

We went with the Roomie to see ‘A Christmas Carol’ at the historic Walnut Street Theater.


Mr. Nigel Murray loves the theater.  He said it reminded him of his days in London.


We all wondered if he wore clothing in London?  It’s not a question one just blurts out and he wasn’t being forth coming.


Pablo gave the show 12 nubs up!  He was loving the songs and chuckling along like the rest of us.  It was a wonderful day In Town.  We are all starting to feel the Christmas spirit!  God Bless us Everyone!

Groundhog Day!

Eddie doesn’t get the whole let a rodent predict the weather angle but it looks fun.

Jeff is all about the 130th Anniversary of the event.

Linc decided to use the Magic 8-Ball to make sure Phil’s prediction was correct.  He got a strong “Most Likely”.  I’ll take it!

Going to The Beach

This weekend we went with the Roomies to the Beach.

Gru has put the word out that all off this is his…you may borrow his beach for a fee.

It was too cold to go down to the water but after the Nor’easter we got a week ago Homie was shocked that the beach looked this good.

Jeff the Clone declared this beach superior to his visit to Tatooine.  That was like Death Valley.  No fun!

IMG_1061 (300x400)

Jeff the Clone has decided this is his new house.  Until Gru explained that it is on his beach, thus, it his domain.

Jimmy and Eddie discuss why they’ve been angry that none of their travels have been included on the blog.  These guys are super famous and stuff.

Don’t you people know who we are!  We are the drunk guys who gave you the California Trip of 2012!!!!

Oh Yay…It Snowed

So in our neighborhood we got 22.4″ of snow from Jonas.  I still think it’s stupid they name the storms.  Now nobody will want a friend named Jonas because that a-hole dropped 2-3′ of snow on the east coast!

I think that Homie needs a smaller shovel.  It do give him props for giving it a try though 😉

IMG_0843 (300x400)

I was Bjorn of the mountain.  Really there were mountains of snow everywhere after the plows came through.  Crazy stuff this Nor’easter business.

IMG_0849 (300x400)

We decided to have some fun sliding down the hill.  It would be sledding if someone remembered to bring the sled.  I’m not pointing fingers but you’ll recognize him from his thumbs up…BUDDY!

Homie says he enjoys snow so much more now than when he was a garden gnome/elf.  He’s a big fan of keeping dry and being warm.  We all survived and the next storm to come our way has been changed to a passing rain shower so no more shoveling for a bit.  YAY!!!

Springing Into Spring

It’s still a bit cold in our part of the globe but we all got excited when we saw the flowers starting to bloom.  It meant that Spring was springing!

Thad loved the daffodils!

Ingrid always loves going to the arboretum.  It reminds her so much of Norway and the Fjords and forests.

IMG_9755 (400x300)

Even with the cooler weather how could one not enjoy such an outing?

So much fun.  I hope you get to go out and smell the flowers too!
