Cold Comfort

We may think we’re cool, but baby bear you take us to school
Swimming in a pool of sparkling jewels
Of ice, ice, baby, it must be nice once or twice but take my advice
When you’re done with this vice you oughter
Splash around in warmer wetter water
That’s where you’ll have a real ball, y’all
And when you’re done swimming we’ll hand you a taw’l

      My first thought was “They’re gonna need a sturdier pool!” 😉
      Love the slo-mo dive into ice!

    That baby’s happiness brought tears of joy to my eyes.

    Anyone else tempted to rub his belly? Who needs two hands anyway….

    Nora, if you come live at my house, I will make you a kiddie pool of ice EVERY DAY. Unbelievably cute! (almost said “unbearably,” but, you know . . .)

      We could POOL our resources and make a nICE habitat 😀

      • DebG October 10, 2016 / 5:52 pm

        I’m all in!

    I would fight Nora for the pool of ice when I get one of my hot flashes 😓🌋🌡

      Wouldn’t we all?

      Seriously, Gigi, have you ever tried black cohosh? Available pretty much everywhere these days. Stops hot flashes in their tracks. It’s saved my sanity on more than one occasion!

      Bienvenue au club Gigi 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
      Although I might wait for her to take a nap first. Even cubs are HUGE.

        Oh I’ve been in the club for over 15 years now. The hot flashes are not really bad just a few during the day and at night and they don’t last long but they’re just not going away. I just thought menopause would end one day 🙁

    For some reason, by the end of line four, I was expecting another kind of animal to join in the fun.
    I don’t have an otter emoji. 😪

    t’awl – I love it! Anything for the craft Mike!!

      I thought it was pretty great, too.😉
