flew the coop

After almost two weeks of being house-bound with snow days
we made it out of town & south bound.
Grumpiness gone.

Happy New Year.

is Freeloader.

Lou...for short.

I adopted him (about this time) 3 years ago.
We had snow, freezing rain & sub-twenty temps.
His (original) owner left him outside.

Me...being Me....couldn't stand it, so I started letting him in.
He got along well with Tug & Harley.
In fact...he made himself right at home.

Then...about a year & a half ago...he started spraying/peeing in the v-man's room.
Big mistake.
I won't tolerate that out he went.
Don't worry though...another neighbor started caring for him.

Imagine my surprise...when I found him scratching on my door at 6:00 a.m. the other morning.
It was freezing out...and snowing!
(fucking part-time pet owners)

I let him in.
Been here since Saturday morning...
...making himself right at home.
