First, I'm sorry I've not been here in a VERY long time. Lots going on, it's just hard to keep up w/ everything!!! I know, excusez, excusez - that's what I've got.

I'm sure excited for M to be joining us. I can't wait for the Fruitcake to give her a name. How 'bout Musezi? Anyway I will be getting info out to you all shortly.

On a sad note, one of my excusez is my pooch is slowly going downhill. She haz probably bladder cancer and it won't be long b/f she can't pee at all and will have to go to doggie heaven. It's been very hard knowing and watching this take place. I know some of you know this already and have been so supportive, I appreciate that a lot.

But, WELCOME to the Punchiez Miss M.

Hugzi to all,
Bugzi

PS - Quiltz, what a lota loot!! Good for you. I'll be going to a party the end of the month. I've got my list made already!!!!

On to the real reason for my entry: YOU GIRLZ BEEZ NIZE TO MY ALBERTAN PUNCHKATEER friend!!!!

I take an additional interest as this is a card she cased for my FS gig so you are stepping on my toesies and MamaRitzi is is going to become a mean Mama if you keep picking on poor Izzy. I'll tell Santa not to give you any punches for Christmas and beware of Izzy, she has great powers to send snow your way - as recent weather across the country has proven! She is even tickling Benzi's toes with snow down south there to remind her of the punches she still owes her!! Yes, never underestimate the power of a Prairie woman - they can be veeeeeery dangerous.....

Ritzi, so that is why we got so much snow......Izzy put a spell on us. Well, we rather enjoyed it and it is still with us. I'm still pet sitting and it is very difficult when doggies don't want to go out because of snow. And, I was taking up for Izzy...... what's up?

In my best Steve Urkel voice: "Did I do that?"

And as Piglet might say: "Oh dear!"

Iffen it wuz me that tickled your toes with snow - goodness me, it wasn't on purpose but I may have to look into what special powers I might have! If you like snow, you're welcome. If you don't, join the club.

(And thanks for the support MamaRitzi! )

Upon closer inspection, the card/spying machine that I got from Pamzi was covered with these little silver spots. Now I know...

Welcome to the Divine Miss M!

This is what I do Ritzi when it snows a lot. First I keep $20 in my pocket, then when any kind of plow goes by I lean on my shovel like I am about to have a heart attack, usually they will stop and ask if I want them to plow, I say yes, then I throw the $20 in their window and run in the house!

I'd freeze to death before a plow came by on our street so I'll just stay inside and keep the $20 until the snow melts and go buy a new punch.

And, I'd be taking off for the store for card making goodies and tell DH to have fun with the snow shovel. You know, we both deserve a little fun now and then. Just kidding.

Hey, I just heard our horoscopes have changed. I may not be a gemini now. How can I exist!!!!!!!!???????????

I put my Christmas cardz away, too (in the craft room now) and strange things are beginning to happen in there. You know, little beeps and odd noises. Kind of like the twilight zone in there.
Who knows what my cards will look like now, working under those kinds of erie surroundings?

I won't spill the beans...there has been talk of a name for Stamp Muse but I left it up Pamzi to give her a name. I tried to guide Pam so it won't be crazy like the one she tried to give me....and she occasionally still she uses those goofy names on me. I'm so glad I already had a name that ended with zi. No one is safe from Pamzi and her name machine.

Hey punchiez, I put a couple pictures of the snow we got on my blog. If you're interested, take a peek. No, you don't have to comment. It is a couple pictures of cardinals in the snow in my neighbor's back yard. I am pet sitting while she is on a cruise. What kind of deal is that? Anyway, she missed the snow and she really didn't want to. That is what happens when you cruise to warmer climates.
Benzi Stampz The pictures will be after my first card.

Aaaahhhh.... All I can say is I wish it was me - on a cruise and missing the snow that is. Not wishing I hadn't missed the snow! My brother is leaving on his first ever cruise on Feb 5; dear friends leave on theirs on Feb 6th... We're all the way up to -21C this morning. A few days in the Caribbean sounds mighty fine right about now. I will admit that DH has booked another cruise - but we don't sail until late April and our snow SHOULD be gone by then... We often get a blast in May just to remind us of where we live but it's usually a one-day thing. As long as it happens while we're gone I'll be fine with that. Our youngest is going to join us - should be great fun.

And yes, it's my DH that shovels the snow around here too. So I suppose, IF I had $20 in my pocket I could toss it his way - but I'm with Benzi & Quiltzi. Keepin' it safely in my pocket...

I saw something about the zodiac changing. Sounds fishy to me - but that's because I'd still be a Pisces. I don't ever look at the horror-scopes anyway...

Hopezi that Pamzi is givin' zerious thought to the namezi for the newbie. Zhe haz come up with zome zcary ideaz in zee pazt.

BTW Benzi - saw your pics of the cardinals. I so wish we had cardinals here...

Have a great day. Wave at the cameraz in yer cardz and RYPH!!!

We don't get the plows down our street too often so I'm with Izzy LOL!

Mind you there is a good story that goes with this. The Christmas of 2008 we got close to two feet of snow over two days. I haven't seen it snow that much in this area for years and as Murphy's Law would have it, everyone in the family was sick other than "moi" so I got the shoveling duties. That was a LOT of snow to move off the driveway and steps! Upside is I lost two pounds that week

The plows did come down our street a few times as we have a firehall up the street so they need to have access in and out if the main street is blocked. I had my driveway all nicely shoveled the first time round and the darn plow promptly placed a nice two foot wall at the end of my driveway --ugh! Back out to get rid of it so the cars could get out. More snow, and same song second verse occurred. Back out I go. Third day, the sun came out and it was a glorious day. Was out removing the snow from the night before and a lady from across the street and her son were digging her car out from not only the snow but the snow plow snow. You can probably guess what came next....yup, down the street comes the plow and that poor dear woman and son were probably ready to throw their bodies in front of the plow because, once it went by, they were window deep in snow on that one side again. I had to go inside quickly to LOL because the looks on their faces were priceless.

Needless to say, I'm glad our snow is usually gone in a day or so (snows and then gets warm and rains and it's gone) as it just about has here after the now we got Tuesday night.

So...another cruise...may have to change your name Izzy Departing from Vancouver by any chance....???!!! Assuming not as it's Alaska or down to CA from here, but just had to ask Still trying to lure you in early so we can hook up, and IF ond only IF Debzi is behaving she can join in too.

We are actually departing from Fort Lauderdale - but we'll be disembarking in Vancouver. DH hasn't booked our flights home yet... most times we've headed straight for the airport from the cruise terminal. The one exception to that was last year in Fort Lauderdale where we stayed a few extra days at the end of the cruise in an attempt to avoid a few more wintry days. Staying longer meant we missed even more of the Olympics but we did catch occasional highlights ~ and our girls bought us the Commemorative DVD once we got home. Funny that last year there wasn't enough snow and this year you're out there with your shovel...

And thanks for sending that wet front over the mountains. By the time it gets here, it usually means more snow...

Izzy and Ritzi sure have some wild snow tales. So funny about those snow plows, Ritzi...or maybe not so funny.
Izzy, my goodness, off of another cruise. You travel more than I do in my jet.

Eeeeeeek!!!!!! Okay, what do we have to do to convince your hubby that you need to "linger" in Vancouver for a day or two LOL! Would SO love to hook with you and give you a big hug in person Will have to scope out some places he can play tennis at perhaps?? Or find him a good sports bar so he can watch some games on a big screen or....fill his mailbox with cards form me....you know him best, help us out LOL! If worse comes to worse, I'll meet you at the airport for a visit - done that before and it works just great in a pinch

Yup. Ritzi's snow came over the mountains today. It is snowing AGAIN. But I am so thankful we aren't experiencing some of the horrible weather that's happening elsewhere in the world. Areas we visited in Australia on our honeymoon (1980) are underwater right now!

Yup. DH can't help himself. My brother phoned right before Christmas asking questions about cruises as he was wanting to book one for himself. By the next day DH had booked one for us. Then, the following day, our youngest came home for the holidays, asked innocently if she could come, and Voila! She's booked. Oh to be the youngest... She finishes college the week we leave so it fits perfectly for her. I mumbled something about it being "too soon after the last holiday" but hubby says he wants to travel now while we're healthy and can do it. His parents waited too long and never got to travel anywhere. He vows not to let that happen to us. Works for me.

Sue, are you out there? Hope you're not still sick. I see you haven't uploaded a card in over a week.

Yep, Kookzi...you're coming in loud and clear. Glad you're better and that laryngitis has made an exit.

Hey Punchkateers. Long time no punch. Well, I feel bad for all of you up to your you know whats with all that snow. We didn't get any of the snow but it has been really cold here. My hands are like to Popsicles at the end of two frozen sticks by the end of the day. We are just not equipped for the cold here in this tropical climate. Did you know you can't find hats, scarfs, and mittens in the stores here....no wonder just about everyone in my little town has pneumonia!!! My Mother said the blizzard in Connecticut was the worst she's seen in years. I remember the blizzard of 78 and had the same experience as Marissa with the plow.

Izzy good for you going on a cruise. We have the same philosophy about traveling. If we can afford it-we are going too! You never know about health issue when you get older. My Mom wanted to go to Hawaii and I was going to take her 3 years ago but her Doctor said no way-she was so disappointed over that.

Nice to be back crafting. I will be checking in here more. I gave up all my design team commitments except for one now.

Oh I got a penguin border punch at Micheal's Friday night for $2.39. I couldn't leave it there....I told myself that I would be looking for it around Christmas time this year and have buyers regret.....lol I also got some big bottles of funky orange,yellow, and red stickles for $2 that I know sooner or later I will put to use. Good thing I don't live in a two story house.....I don't have to worry about the weight of my punch collection come crashing down from the second floor....lol

Yes, Quiltzi! Those will do quite nicely. I'll be honest though, I had to look at that dancer in the middle a couple of times before I realized he was blowing a horn and not sharing 'hot air'. Darn those progressive lenses! Sometimes I have to look at things a second time to be sure of what I see...

Koozki - how was the stamp night? Did ya do the "punchez-raised-high conga line"?

Bearzi - meant to share on here earlier that today (it's still Jan 18th as I type this - besides being my son's birthday) is National Winnie the Pooh day. (BTW, hope the new job is going well...)

Here's a few Pooh-isms for ya all to enjoy... They are deeper than you think... That Pooh, he's a deep thinkin' bear!

  • "Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there someday."
  • "A bear, however hard he tries, grows tubby without exercise."
  • "If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart… I'll always be with you." (Christopher Robin talking to Pooh)
  • "I don't see much sense in that," said Rabbit. "No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way."
  • "If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you."
  • "Some people care too much, I think it's called love."
  • "You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes."
  • "It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "How about lunch?"
  • "When late morning rolls around and you're feeling a bit out of sorts, don't worry; you're probably just a little eleven o'clockish."
  • "Before beginning a hunt, it is wise to ask someone what you are looking for before you begin looking for it."
  • "If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear."
  • "When having a smackerel of something with a friend, don't eat so much that you get stuck in the doorway trying to get out."

Night all. (BTW, we had a gorgeous day here today - it was MUCH warmer and it didn't snow at all!! And I got my Verve order today. The Customs agents mustn't have spent too much time playing with my stamps.)
