Joyful 2018!

I am starting the blog again.  May you all have the best year, this year, that you have ever had!  Full of Joy, Health, and Enlightenment.

An other-worldly Savannah snowstorm in Savannah, GA.  A harbinger of great things to come!

We’re Ready!

We’re ready for the snow!

Saturday Evening Post: There’s Snow in Savannah! Mounds (Well, Mound) of It!


As some of you know, I’ve been having this “issue” with snow.  It all started with a post (read it here) I did about good friends Donnie and Kinzie, who went up north for Christmas and sent these pictures of a substance they called SNOW (which all Savannahians know doesn’t really exist except in Christmas cartoon movies).



(Read the follow-up post here.  It’s #3 of the Five Things.)

Well, I have a HUGE APOLOGY to make to Donnie and Kinzie and Yankees everywhere.

I’m SO sorry.  There IS snow.  Here.  In Savannah!  I was walking past the Civic Center today and saw this:



A big ole mound of SNOW.  I got so excited I ran right up on top of the mound.





Snow!  You were right, Donnie and Kinzie!

But why on earth does it just snow in one spot?!


My Saturday Evening Post — Snow? Nope. Snow Way!

So last night good friends Donnie and Kinzie (Donnie is at SCAD–the Savannah College of Art and Design–studying film, and Kinzie is a talented photographer) texted me from their holiday soiree in hometown Urbana, Illinois:

My response:


(Maybe I shouldn’t have included that part of text about crying over Tiny Tim IN A MUPPET MOVIE.  It’s a little embarrassing, mainly because it’s true.  Then again, maybe I shouldn’t have confessed that part about truth.  Oh well, water under the bridge now.)

The next interchange between Kinzie and me:


You see, I live in Savannah, GA.  That’s right, the deep South, and we ain’t never hearda snow.  But, if you can believe Donnie and Kinzie, it’s this white, frozen stuff that falls out of the sky.  Ha!  Right!  Like I’m falling for that.  And it seems you can make “snow men” out of it.  Ha!  Right!  The only snow man I can make is outta socks:


So, professor that I am, I decided to do some serious research about Donnie’s and Kinzie’s “snow.”  Of course I headed straight to UrbanDictionary.com.  And, looky here, Donnie and Kinzie.  Here’s what snow means:


1. Snow — Something that is radical, cool, or otherwise awesome. Something that is snow is generally the sh_t, being top score, bitchin, etc. The word is derived from the fact that snow is generally off the hook in its beauty, power, and pimpery.

“Duuuuude I just saw Predator and it was sooooo snow.”

9. Snow — It is the process of adding lots of small hole-punched papers into a nuggeted back pack.

“Who snowed my back pack?”

10. Snow — Mislead, especially by overwhelming with (mis)information.  Deceive.  Hoodwink  Bamboozle.

“The teacher was snowed by the seemingly endless barrage of students’ questions and failed to realize what was really occurring in the classroom.”

25. Snow — Snow is a racist term used to describe white people in general, mainly because their skin tone is white as snow.

“Damn, look at that snow whitey, he’s white as snow.”

32. Snow — To shed excess amounts of dandruff on another person.

 “Mary was disgusted when John came over and snowed on her shoulder.”

I could go on and on.  There are over fifty definitions.  But “frozen white stuff that falls from the sky?”  Donnie??  Kinzie??  Really??  But you’re young and all.  I can forgive you.  (But how did you doctor up those pictures?)
Love you anyway!
