    Wow! That ice thing looks really cool! I wish Warsaw had real winter sometimes.

    I love Paco and the wooly mammoth. I didn’t know they sold them at Petco.

    Wooly mammoths. Not Paco.

    All that ice looks so awesome. And…well…a bit scary!

    i’ve never seen ice like that up close and personal. i wanna go play on it too!

    hope groomeo is feeling a little better each day.

    good for you – what groomeo
    doesn’t know can’t hurt him…

    It’s truly heartwarming that you are able to find solace while Groomeo suffers on his pallet. I’m sure your sacrifices are not lost on him.

    The light is incredible in your ice floe pictures. Could you please send me a mastodon when you find one? Preferably female, much gentler.

    Perhaps Brangelina was (were?) unduly influenced by Swift’s “Modest Proposal,” being as how they are so literate and all, and how green of them to grow their own food.

    From crucifixes in urine to woolly mammoths on sale at Petco -boy, you do some leaps about there, don’t you?
    Be darned if that rock doesn’t resemble the mammoth though but I think I’ll try not to think about the crucifix in urine. Somehow, that one just ain’t quite right, ya know. I hope you realize too that since my daughter was floating about the room behind me, doing a teensy bit of cleaning, and I was sitting here reading, giggling, chuckling a good bit, she’s totally convinced that Mom is really over the edge, the mind done gone to fluff for sure! If she only saw what I saw by reading what I read, maybe she’d understand this better. One of these days though, she’ll get it.

    That looks like risky business!! But so beautiful 🙂 And so cool that you have wooly mamoths where you live!

    What is this “ice” that you speak of?

  9. Sunflower56 says:

    I’m enjoying your blog and snippets of your life and style of writing. The ice photos today are fantastic – that must be Lake Superior? I’m in CA and it was a warm spring-like day today – just not right for Jan 31st! Oh how I wish that it would rain … (wish there were a musical note character to post in front of that last part).

  10. flutter says:

    well, how is it possible that I didn’t know that you blog from The North Pole?

  11. Jazz says:

    I think Groomeo needs to start blogging cause a) it would keep him busy and b) it would no doubt amuse me to hear(read) his side of the story…

  12. citizen of the world says:

    Oh. My. Sweet. Lord. YOu know that ice would kill me, don’t you? Glad you folks enjoyed it, though!

  13. Pam says:

    Wow Jocelyn-great photos. Had to go back and check on your profile to find out where you’re living – I haven’t seen ice like that.I thought I’d be doing the caretaking role you’ve described, and had been warned about the after- anaesthetic emotions, but luckily husband’s heart surgery was postponed.Love how you keep your pecker up, but maybe that has a different context when used in relation to groomeo. He’s better off with ice,sympathy and good company.I can’t imagine how my husband would be trying to recover in our record heat-wave.Get well soon Groomeo.

  14. Steve says:

    Groomeo never reads this, thank heavens, so he’ll never know the secrets of the journey to the undiscovered ice country.

  15. geewits says:

    That’s crazy ice! Isn’t that Superman’s secret files or something?

    I hope your husband recovers soundly soon, but more importantly, I hope he doesn’t resent you for the trauma. (It can happen.)

  16. liv says:

    I don’t care what nobody says. You talk purtyer than a $20 whore.

  17. ArtSparker says:

    I came over from born a girl because you left “Wot Larks” in her comments.

    Is that from “Tom Brown’s schooldays”? I can’t remember, It’s driving me crazy.

    One of those photos has something that looks like the monolith from 2001. But generally…just amazing.

  18. kimber the wolfgrrrl says:

    Amazing ice! Yes, I think you’re wise not to mention how spectacularific it all is — juxtaposed against endless hours of cribbage, that would just be cruel.

  19. Chantal says:

    Those pictures really are cool. Poor Groomeo.

  20. pistols at dawn says:

    I looked at the ice and thought, “Wow, that looks like the Fortress of Solitude,” then realized that it’s such references to fictional places from comic-book-themed movies that keep me living in my own Fortress of Solitude.
