Glad to see Andy looking happy and over that nasty tummy bug!

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Took me a second to see the snowmen on the plates - totally awesome!

jack69 said...

Thanks for the laughs, it took a few seconds then I cracked up about the dog and the toilet!
Love the Lift, what a good thought!
Love from here, yeah we COOL but WILL warm up (won't we?)(smile)

Cheri said...

Love the funnies today and yes, we have picked out furniture thinking of our pups. LOL

LL Cool Joe said...

Love all the images.

I suppose we need some snow here before I can make a snowman! Love all the entries so far!

Jeanie said...

I love all the snowman creativity.
The dog with the toilet took me a minute too.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Sandie .. there are some great snowmen here .. I liked the biscuit ones and the chap sitting cross-legged on his bench - just so glad I'm not Andy having to choose! He at least looks better .. I hadn't realised you'd cracked/broken your wrist .. hope it's easing? and getting better .. cheers Hilary

Susan said...

Hey girl. SOOOO glad you are on the mend.

Still hacking here but much better, also.

Got quite a chuckle out of today's post. The snowmen with the rabbit holding a hairdryer was hilarious.

Have a wonderful Friday! Susan

Sandee said...

I'm so glad you are feeling better. Excellent.

My favorite snowman is the one Joyce sent in. That's adorable. They are all cute, but that one just jumps right out.

Have a fabulous day and weekend honey. Big hugs to you and scritches to Disco. ♥♥♥

Beth said...

All of the snowmen are so cute.

I am glad you are feeling better!!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

looks like Grandson and Disco are feeling better!! I like the concept of the dog with the toliet!! I think that every morning and night when I have to take Augie outside to do his "job"!! Rain, snow, sleet and hail!! He has to do his business outside!! I don't like just standing with him waiting on him!!
Have a great weekend Sandie and stay warm!! Brrrrrrrr!

Willow said...

Ha Ha I am going right outside now and try to make something creative in the snow :)))

Nancy's Notes said...

They are all just adorable! He's going to have a tough time choosing! So happy you are feeling better. Stay warm!

Shalet Jimmy said...

As usual, hilarious....and wonderful. I have a big smiley on my face....

Cathy said...

Your Friday posts always make me smile or even laugh out loud. I need to check out my pictures at home tonight and see if I have any good snowman ones.

Debbie said...

I am LOVING the snowmen! According to Miss Whimsy, we are forcasted some snow early next week. Now, I will believe it when I see it, but if I get some, you never know... I might submit entry #2.

So glad you are back feeling better. Still, take it easy, OK?

Debbie said...

So the red squiggle says that "forcasted" is not a word.

Predicted then.
Details, details...

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Oh, I love all of the snowmen! And we definitely procaffeinate around here! lol Glad you are feeling better! Hugs!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love the dogs on the sofa. Love all the snowmen, my two favorites are:
The snowman knitting and The Snow Easter Island heads....very clever!

Sharon said...

I especially love the snowmen! Clever.

My favorite laugh this week was the one of the dog with the toilet. (Yes, I've been told that I'm a fan of toilet humor...)

Good to see that big ol' GS smile again! And though he and Disco are not snowmen, they're still pretty cool!

xo

Ms. A said...

YES... procaffeinate... for sure!

Eva Ason said...

Happy Friday my friend am so glad to be on time for a change. Off work and is down at peter's place in Wicklow. Very windy and rainy outside but am nice and warm here. I love all the snowmen. Hugs Eva

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

It was brought to my attention that I have never told you just how much I am in awe over how well you have been doing things here. Be assured that I am deeply ashamed of failing to say anything about it before now.

A Quiet Corner said...

No, those two subjects in the last photo are NOT snowmen...but they definitely should WIN!!!...Crap...I plum forgot, Sandie!...:)

Rose said...

I love snowmen!

Nonnie said...

The pic of Disco and his boy are the winning pic in my opinion.

Glad you feel alive again. :-)

We are really having a winter here this year. Maybe there is a decent snowman in our future. Neat idea and happy you're feeling better. Good looking little grandson you got there.

betty said...

Loved the cartoon of the dog carrying out the toilet, LOL :)

We actually did pick our sofa to match Koda, got a brown couch since he tends to shed a lot :)

just got an idea for the snowman, so should send a picture your way this weekend!

Nikki (Sarah) said...

My absolute favorite in the first pic with all the pups sprawled out and the last one of Andy and Disco.....Hey did you guys see Frozen. All those snowmen pics reminded me of the movie. If you haven't...go. You'll love it. Happy weekend Chatty

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I think I'm procaffienating right now:@)Glad to hear you're all feeling better!

Granny Annie said...

Very happy to hear you are getting better. Wow, you sure have a lot of neat snowmen entered. Andy will have quite a job picking the winner.

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

yes, forever stamps are used forever. but if you bought them when they were cheaper it was a lot smarter than if you wait until they were more expensive to buy? see what i mean??! so you should have bought them years ago when they were a lot cheaper. ha. ha! ( :

enjoy your weekend!

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I bet it is great to feel good again. Glad you are all better. So many cute snowmen pictures it would be hard to choose. Hope you all are keep warm there...more snow and below freezing temps here.

Terri Buster said...

Oh my gosh Sandie- you are going to have a hard choice to pick the best- they are all so CUTE!

Theresa Mahoney said...

Look at all the snowmen you are getting! How fun!

Susannah said...

Glad to hear you all are feeling better! Grandson and Disco look like they are doing well!!!! Love the snowman pictures!

Katie Clooney said...

Sandy... the pic of the kids feet coming out of the snowman is priceless. Thanks for always giving me a great laugh!

Munir said...

Glad that you guys are feeling better.
Love the snowman on the plates and the Halowweeny Snowman too. LOL

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

I'm glad I don't have to judge that contest. What great entries!

We've got plenty of snow here. It's more than a mite chilly.

catskillblogger said...

I finally have a name for my morning procrastination!

P.S. My mom was a pediatric nurse, so I pick up on that sort of stuff.

Rob-bear said...

The snowmen are fun! Glad you're doing this. Hope you're having fun in the process.

Blessings and Bear hugs.

BTW, when it gets really cold up here, we just throw an extra dog in the bed, to help stay warm. Forget the "extra blanket" idea.

Joyce Olson said...

I am happy to know you and the family are feeling so much better! That was a very bad bug!
Great cartoons and I am leaving with a smile and happier heart!
xx-
Jemma

Betsy said...

Glad you are much better. I think its just starting to hit us.
Love #12, I can imagine riding by a home and seeing this the first time.

Starry Dawn said...

Hi Sandie,
I am glad to know that you are feeling better, my dear friend.
I was praying for you, sweetie.
I love the collection of snowmen.
Your grandson and Disco look so beautiful and happy together.
Thank you for sharing these pics!
Is it cold in Atlanta, GA now?
It is very hot over here, like 120 degrees Farenheit. I can't work under extreme weather conditions.
I'll take a break to cool off.
Doctor Paul is on vacation too.
Please, take a look at My Poetry Corner, for I've added a poem.
Thank you for showing your loving ways, Sandie, sweet friend!
God bless you!
Cheers,
Poet Starry.

Jim said...

You must have had a little snow last week, Sandie. I like the snow cartoons but the dog ones are a lot better for me. Best was the first, the five dogs all laid out on the couch.

Next was the five second rule. Our Katrin (French toy poodle) uses that one. She never lets me.

Lucy said...

I love the dog and the toilet and of course the top picture. I had a bit of a rough weekend and am waiting for Doctors offices to open. Will get back when I can.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

This is all very cleaver Sandie. I ain't got one snowman any wheres. That's ok, I won the last giveaway. Can't be a Giveaway hog, right? lol

Thanks for your ever sweet happiness you share with me. You are a great friend!!!!♥

Maggie Ann said...

I sure enjoyed your 'snowman' parade!

Sandra said...

a really good gathering of snow men and it is the right day for them with all the snow every where....
