Andy became concerned!
“It’s nearly sunup and you haven’t posted a blog post for today!” OK, Andrew! Here it is! Satisfied??? “No! My fans will be upset if I’m not there when they scan the new posts for the day. And they already are upset with my new haircut. (So am I!)”
The “White Christmas” crowd gets their wish this year. Here’s the weather predictions for the next few days through Christmas. Ugh! I can do without the white stuff, especially when the previous storm’s dump hasn’t melted yet.

Wow. I’m dreading the storm that’s coming here after you’re done with it. But it’s not supposed to be nearly so cold. (Being on the opposite side of the state from the lake effect has its advantages.)
Best wishes for surviving it!
Brrrr…Friday night is going to be really cold.
I hate going out into it, but Thursday and Saturday I have dialysis at 5:00 AM- 9:45-ish.
Wow man, you need to move way down south somewhere, Doug. That is some very dangerous cold!
Dangerous indeed! One best better not get out in it if possible. I have two days where I have dialysis to go before Christmas.
I hope you can get on the road for those very important appointments, Doug.
I called the hospital and one of the dialysis nurses picked me up. I used a public service bus for ride home. The city runs the service during the week and doesn’t charge dialysis patients the $1.00 all others pay per trip. In all, it is a bargain.
Again, that’s wonderful news! 🤙🏻🥶❤️
You are in for some rough weather, Doug and Andy! Stay warm and snug. Snow keeps sneaking in and out of the forecast here. We never know for sure what’s coming.
It’s dangerous weather to try to go anywhere out of town.
I can do without the cold and snow, too. We’re getting the cold, it could stay sub- freezing for an extended period of time. It may get down to zeroF. Faucets will have to be dripped. Hi to Andy and y’all stay warm!
Me, too, Leah! You stay warm, too.
Ohhh, you know you’re in trouble when he calls you by your full name!
How true! Another way to know he’s upset is when he scratches on his cactus scratcher.
I like Andy’s new cut. However, I am sure he is much colder, now.
I turned up the heat in all the rooms before his appointment. It’s warm and comfortable. Andy doesn’t go out for any reason, so should be ok till his hair grows out again.
Andy, you look very handsome with your new furcut. You must feel better too, You;ll get used to it in time. Your fur friend, Max
It got rid of those awful mats under his arms and tummy!
Andy is not so happy: no more fur for a shelter against the cold and more he has to wait for the daily post!!! What a life! he says ! 🙂
I turned the heat up so he’d be comfortable when he got home from his haircut.
Not a pleasant forecast. Andy looks completely without gruntle
I can do with warmer weather any day!
