  1. A battle scar. For the next few days when your finger hearts , it will put a smile on your face and carry you throughout your day.

    Funny story, my next door neighbor are new home owners. Just over a year they moved in and last year we didnt get much snow. So they piled out of their house yesterday and the husband was the biggest kid of all. He was throwing snowballs. He put their dog on a sled and was pulling it in the street. Then he started making a snow a man…and he had no idea how to do. He finally finished and decorated his snow man with construction gear ( his profession) and took pictures then went off up and down the block asking anyone if they needed help shoveling snow ( he was the first on the block to clear off his property) .

    That night , I walked my dog and she stopped in front the snow man and started pacing in front of it and growing and barking. She stood there for five minutes trying to fight the snow man. lol.
