North and South

 Here is a snowman we found in northern Utah on February 5, 2022, flanked by my two oldest sons who are each 6' 7",
and here is a "snowman" from southern Utah on February 17, 2022, which is a little shorter than my own 5' 11.5" height, but has more potential lasting power than its northern cousin.
This shows that even though Utah isn't the largest state, it's a diverse one. Bob's parents are natives of the Netherlands, and one summer when his grandmother visited from the old country, the family drove from Salt Lake City to a National Park in southern Utah. Along the way, Grandma asked a time or two, "What country are we in now?" The Netherlands do, after all, take up much less space than Utah.
Now I'm wondering, which snowman's territory do you prefer?

Gender Wars

My elementary school aged granddaughter is the only girl in her family, so I had to laugh when I saw this sign on her bedroom door, especially the tagline, "My mom said."
At least where brothers are concerned, she's not in the mood for Valentine's Day!

Happy Shoes

Someone had fun making these sunny yellow shoes. I'm not referring to the high heels. High heels aren't fun, at least not for wearing. I used to wear high heels, but they did not make my knees happy.
 Still, if someone were to make these into smiley flip flops, I'd be the first in line to get some.
 Would you wear smiley shoes?
