More snowy pix

We got just over a foot of snow yesterday, which resulted in a Snow Emergency for our county. Ryleigh and I stayed in all day, but today, we got out for a few minutes. I can only go so long without a fountain Diet Pepsi, you know! lol

I'd turned into our driveway and our house is barely visible in the distance

Across the road from our house

Snowplow nearly buried the neighbor's mailbox. At least the box is still attached to the post! lol

Our road today

The road has almost drifted shut again. I wish the sun had been shining.

Neighbor's critters

Snowed in

We have just over a foot of snow!

Looking out our window this morning

Looking down the hill in our front yard

Our buried fence on the left, which is at the top of our drive, near the garage and looking out at our long driveway along the left treeline

Snowy Scenes from my neck of the woods

Picture above was taken at a park near us

I took this picture while standing in our garage, looking out at our long driveway. It was snowing very hard.

I took this pic standing in our driveway, looking towards the west side of our front yard.

The road we live on. We live just over the hill you see in the distance

Another pic taken at the park

You can't see the details in this pic, but the stone bridge in the park is so awesome! The stream under the bridge was frozen and snow covered and you could see little animal prints right on top of the frozen stream bed

That's when the fight started...

A friend sent me this and I loved it!

My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flipping channels.
She asked, 'What's on TV?'
I said, 'Dust.'
And then the fight started...
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- ---------

My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.
She said, 'I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3
I bought her a scale.
And then the fight started...

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- ---------
When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her someplace
expensive... so, I took her to a gas station.
And then the fight started...

------------ --------- --------- --------- ------

I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took my
order first.
"I'll have the strip steak, medium rare, please."
He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?""
"Nah, she can order for herself."
And then the fight started...

------------ --------- --------- ---

A woman is standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.
She is not happy with what she sees and says to her husband, 'I feel
horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment.'
The husband replies, 'Your eyesight's darn near perfect.'
And then the f ight started.....

------------ --------- --------- ------

I tried to talk my wife into buying a case of Miller Light for $14.95.
Instead, she bought a jar of cold cream for $7.95.
I told her the beer would make her look better at night than the cold
And then the fight started....

------------ --------- --------- --------- -----

My wife asked me if a certain dress made her butt look big. I told her
not as much as the dress she wore yesterday
and then the fight started.....

------------ --------- --------- --------- ------

I asked my wife, "Where do you want to go for our anniversary? "
It warmed my heart to see her face melt in sweet appreciation.
"Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" she said.
So I suggested, "How about the kitchen?"
And that's when the fight started....

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- ----

My wife and I are watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while we were in bed. I turned to her and said, "Do you want to have sex?"
"No," she answered.
I then said, "Is that your final answer?"
She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying "Yes."
So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."
And that's when the fight started....

Digital Scrapbooking Questions

I've been thinking about dipping my toe into the world of digital scrapbooking. I know nothing...or almost nothing...about it! I'd love to hear from you if you'd tried it...whether you like it or you don't.

I don't have a printer that would print a 12X 12 page, so where would I be able to print my pages out? Even if I create the pages online, I'd want to print them out and put them in an album, I am almost certain. I'm wondering if scrapbook stores have printers large enough to print out pages from my media disk?

I'd love to hear your opinions & knowledge of this creative outlet. Thank you!
