Weather Report

Traffic is moving slowly, shall we say it's snow moving?
No, we shall not.
Snow more waiting, January is here.
Please make it stop.
And snow it goes, expect 5-7 inches.
Basta.
There's just snow visibility.
I hate you.

I took a detour from an Armageddon grocery run store when it started snowing

I met Becca and Kylie (hiding)

An accident on the way home. How do people forget how to drive in snow every year?

Put Up Yer Mitts

I saw these bike mittens a few winters back while scrambling over a frozen snow bank to get some po' boys from the New Orleans Take-Out by Camp Randall (which Trip Advisor gives 4.5 owl eyes). It hasn't been that cold (yet) this winter and we've barely had snow.
However, the weather is being forecast with idioms like It's Time To Pay The Piper and it's making me nervous. I'm actually wearing shorts right now because I live in denial and lately, indoors.





I get cold and hungry every time I look at this photo. Notice the dedicated Onion newspaper box. We may live in the ice and snow but we can still laugh about it. Although it's hard when your lips are stuck to your teeth.

The Cheesy Tchotchke Tuesday Link Up

I don't condone stopping in late afternoon traffic to take photos but I had to snap this display I saw in Monona. It reminded me of my Grandma Clem's house and I adored her and all her cheesy tchotchkes.

I think she (I'm assuming) started out with the 4th and worked her way through the holidays

Then at some point, it got out of hand

And she (I'm assuming) went with it

And with that, it's time for the weekly Say Cheese! Link Up

Do you have a photo with attitude, cattitude, pupittude or pluck?
You heard me, pluck.
How about a recipe made with cheese, how hard can that be.
Link up with whatever you've got because it's time to
SAY CHEESE!
Spread the cheese, please and visit a few of your blogger buds below.

A Peachy Dory Ice Melt

This guy was having a peachy dory time last week despite the ice melting around him. You gotta love Wisconsin fishermen.
WARNING: I'll be using the term "peachy dory" as often as I can until it no longer amuses me.

Bet he's drinking a Pabst

And There's More Cheesy Link Up

When I rumbled down the highway for a quick pic of the annual holiday tribute to Christmas Vacation over there down by Lodi (my aunts pronounce it, "low dee") I failed to notice another movie tribute on the front steps.

It's Ralphie wearing Aunt Clara's Bunny Pajamas and the leg lamp on the porch next to him

I  remember (barely) wearing green footie pajamas pub hopping. I literally hopped from bar to bar like a frog. Yup

Well looky here, Ralphie was visible behind Cousin Eddie the whole time

An answer to the burning question posed in the last post

Of course it's a Hamm's (it had to be that or a Pabst)

and now...

It's the SAY CHEESE! Tuesday Link Up

Do you have a photo with attitude or a recipe with cheese? Then please link them here.
I'm looking for cheesy photos of humans and critters, especially shots of the waggish, the unwieldy and the unwilling.
And as always, I'd love to see any recipe made with cheese (gotta tie it in somehow).

This link up is open until midnight on Friday.

Cousin Eddie

I've been wanting to see this tribute to National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation over the holidays but couldn't get around to it.
But the gorgeous weather made me giddy with spring fever and this ray of black and white sunshine pointed the way.
In case you haven't seen the movie, Cousin Eddie is emptying the RV's toilet into the sewer.

People have called the police on this annual Christmas display. He had trouble putting his hands where they could see them

 Does anyone know what kind of beer he's drinking?
