Ottawa, home of Baby Squirrel Oscar and his harem of Jackie, Missy and Honey, is experiencing a deep-freeze. So to bring some levity to the moment, please enjoy the following gleaned from the Internet:
IT WAS SO COLD THAT....
.......the clouds froze - so we got out the ice axes and crampons and went mountain climbing.
....the squirrels in the park were throwing themselves at an electric fence!
....when we parked the sled, we either had to plug in the dogs - or keep them running in place!
....the mice were playing hockey in the toilet bowl!!
....I saw a chicken with a capon.
....the cows threatened a milk strike if they didn't get thermal bras for their udders.
Of course, it's all good and with a bit of sunshine this aft, the squirrels in my backyard, Oscar's birth home, were out and dining on dried cereal and bits of fruit. It is a fave of theirs.
