No Bacon is Snow Fun...

Snow at last! I love the snow. Other parts of the country have had a covering several times already this year, but we've only had the brass monkey temperatures without any of the fun stuff...

In the early hours I set off along the deserted roads. A quick stop at the petrol station, followed by a couple of drifting laps of the traffic island... the joy of 'left foot braking'!!!

The sparkly, powdered country lanes were beautiful in the glare of the rooflights. Spangles of silver danced in the beams as the front of the car flicked snow off the hedgerows. Driving sideways is so much fun!

I went to see my friends, the foxes. The usual chappy was there (you can recognise him by the nick out of his left ear).

He was somewhat impatient, and wouldn't stand still long enough for me to properly focus the camera. He's learnt how to open the car door, and was soon wrestling with the locked handle... he's going to break it one day!

On the menu tonight was, 'Bacon Surprise'... bread soaked in bacon fat but without any bacon... Surprise!!!

Still it smelt nice.

Very nice...

In fact it tasted so yummy that it made you forget that your bottom was getting cold on the snow.
"I wonder if there'll be raisins for pudding?"... I'm sure we can manage that.

Ive been wondering how youre doing up there, the news reports make it sound as though the world was coming to an end, but surely, people are just getting softer - didnt it snow mountains every week when we were kids? I so miss snow....heck - four seasons for that matter - but I digress....

Excellent shots of your foxy friend - he has learned to open the door - Wow thats a clever lad! Even though there was no bacon, Id bet he still appreciated the bacon surprise, youre a good friend Barkfoot!
