The snow came as a real surprise and he just couldn't get over it!
But what was more of a surprise (and not in a good way) was that I
had closed the back door!
"Mebbe dis is all a bad dream an' if I close my eyes it'll go away."
But that didn't happen of course.
"Oh well (as dey say) if yoo cant BEET 'EM ...
... JOIN 'EM!"
