SHOVELING SNOW AT THE PRISON

JIMMY DIDN'T CALL TONITE AT 9:30 pm.HE USUALLY MAKES HIS LAST CALL TO ME AT THAT TIME, TO SAY GOOD-NITE, AND SO WE CAN BOTH PEACEFULLY FALL ASLEEP.  I KNOW WHY HE DIDN'T CALL..  THEY HAVE THE PRISONERS OUTSIDE IN THE EVENING SHOVELING THE SNOW!  THAT'S WHAT THEY DID YESTERDAY.  JIMMY HATES TO WEAR A COAT, BUT THEY GAVE HIM THIS BIG ORANGE COAT AND ORANGE HAT.  WE WERE LAUGHING THIS MORNING. I SAID,"DID THE COAT HAVE ORANGE STRIPS?! YOU'D LOOK GOOD IN ORANGE DOTS!" "NO GRACIE,IT IS SOLID ORANGE," HE SAID.  JIMMY LOVES TO CALL ME GRACIE.  NOT ONLY WAS THAT HIS MOTHERS NAME, BUT I KIND OF REMIND HIM OF GRACIE ALLEN..MY HUMOR IS LIKE HERS.  THE GUYS AT THE PRISON KNOW ME AS GRACIE!  "WHAT DID GRACIE DO TODAY?" THEY JOKE WITH HIM. SOMETIMES HE CALLS ME LUCY (LUCILLE BALL).........OH WELL, IT COMES NATURAL TO ME!!!!!    ..........IN THE PRISON, JIMMY WEARS AN ORANGE T-SHIRT OR SWEAT-SHIRT.  AT HOME, HE IS BARE-CHESTED MOST OF THE TIME....BETTER TO SNUGGLE INTO HIS CHEST THAT WAY!.........I TOOK PRINCE OUT ON THE PATIO TODAY, FOR ABOUT 2 MINUTES.  HE JUST LOVES THE SNOW!  HE GOT SNOW ALL OVER HIS FACE.  HE SMELLS IT, LICKS IT, AND JUST GETS ALL EXCITED ABOUT IT.  PRINCE IS MOSTLY BORDER-COLLIE, SO HE IS A VERY FRISKIE AND ACTIVE DOG!   I CHECKED HIS LITTLE PAWS, AND THEY WERE COLD, SO WE WENT INSIDE.

I sure hope orange is a good color for Jimmy if they've decked him out in it! You know, not everyone can handle that color. LOL Prince is like the Shelties when it comes to snow, huh? I let them play on the patio for a few minutes, too, but then I make them come in because it's too cold even for them.

Snow shovelling is hard, exhausting work. Thankfully there isn't enough to shovel here in the desert. Keep warm. My Regards, Bill.
