My Winter Wonderland

It has been very cold for the past couple of weeks.



Not that this bothers me, I love rolling around on the icy ground...

... and frolicking in the frost.

During my daily walks, I’ve noticed that my park has been covered with frost. It looks like icing on a cake.

Even the canals have been frozen over.

Me and Missus on a frozen canal.

The cold weather has been good news to many of the Dutch humans who have taken the opportunity to go skating on frozen lakes.

Needless to say, I wanted the chance to go 'Dancing On Ice' . I wanted to be just like Hans Brinker .

Me and Dad on the frozen lake after our skating session. I don’t want to be cheeky but I hope the ice is very thick. Dad has put on a lot of weight over the Christmas period... heh heh heh.

Hi Homer! Wow, it looks like so much fun to play in the snow and go skating on the ice! You're Homer Brinker! And you're so good at posing with the leash lying next to you. If my mom were to let go of my leash like that, I'd be halfway to the Netherlands - or at least the nearest flower - in a split second. Have fun in the snow and ice!

Your friend,
Joey

Heya Homer,
Wow, that's cool.......errr we mean COLD. Our lake never freezes over, well not the side that we live on. Our lake is divided in to two parts by dikes. The other side is the "public" or "cold" side and our side is the "private" or "warm" side. We are hoping that it gets cold here like in Rotterdam so that all the rain we're having will be snow instead. Don't like the crinkle sound the frozen grass in your back yard makes when you run across it? Way cool, Homer. Thanks for sharing all those pictures.

We want to take a trip to the real Paris too!!!!!

Reading your post, Mom was about to say, gee, just like Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates -- when she discovered you wrote the same thing.

What fun -- enjoy your snow and ice and great experiences!!!
