This One Is For Easy then Frankie

My Cincinnati has been in the deep freeze.  This past week we have seen records broken.  Why we were negative 25 degrees one morning.  Like most of the nation we are frozen over.  Hence Lee and I, Sweet William The Scot, spent a lot of time snuggling.  Then I thought what could I post about!
Last Fall when we were driving from one Blessing of The Animals to another one where Lee played guitar we saw something.
Everyone is tired of seeing snow RIGHT!
This post is for my friend Easy!
Bastille Day, the French national holiday, commemorates the storming of the Bastille, which took place on  July 14, 1789 and marked the beginning of the French Revolution.
 The storming of the prison was a symbol of liberty and the fight against oppression for all French citizens

 ~ Wait for it Easy!
We turned the corner!
Oh See The Verdin Bells On The Pole.
 And there in the road was painted THIS!
The Tricolore flag, it symbolized the Republic's three ideals: Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity for all French citizens.
Lee and I jump out of the car and took pictures.
Yep Cincinnati paints streets.  
Yep I told you if anything sits long enough in my city we bring out the paint brushes. 
Well lookie now we are painting streets.  Yep we turned the corner and there it was.
See me tied to the bike lock pole.
Then I got this really great card from Judge Frankie and Ernie The Attorney.
It says I am Smart!  Yep
It says I am Charming!  Yep
It says I am Special!  Yep
It says I am Extraordinary!  Yep
Remarkable and Unique!  Yep
Why it does not say I am handsome ~ what happened ~ they forgot how great looking I am.

I am keeping this card as evidence.
 Thanks dogs.  WE LOVE YOU. 
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine

  3. Rrrrrrring....Rrrrring...will someone answer this thing?!? Oh, ahem....hello Sir William. I say, your Nati City is full of wonderfully talented and creative people (and dogs - does that card say anything about your superb creativity?). Someday, I hope to visit there. Maybe I will even get to meet the Great, Unique, Handsome Sir William!
    Your pal,

  4. FANG TASTIC POST fur WARMING us up... and we SURELY do NEED it right now... we saw that you had it MUCH colder than our measly 5° F. this am... butt you didn't get quite as much snow on Sat. We got 7 inches of it... with no rain...
    OMD Wait until EASY sees this Bastille Day thingy ON YOUR STREET... He won't believe his eyes...
    Now we (BEING GUYZ) did not want to mention your excessive HANDSOMENESS... we thought we would leave THAT to the Wimmen to notice... and we are PAWSITIVE that Miss BELLA has!!!!
    Now you TRY to think warm sunny thoughts... as we anxiously await... the THAW...

    1. I went out and stuck a yard stick in the snow. It measures 8 inches compacted by a layer of ice which I can walk on and not sink into.
      When you heard snow totals, listen for the Lunken Airport or Eastside like Anderson Township those are usually accurate for me neighborhood since I live just inside the city limits by two blocks.

  5. For a few moments we totally forgot that the wind is howling. The only painted streets we have is for homecoming. Pretty cool looking area of the city!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  6. We only get kids' graffiti on our streets. You get some wonderful art work.

    We think you are handsome, too. 'specially Bella.

  7. Oh, that is PAWSOME SW!!! I loves the card...of COURSE you are handsome!!! VERY handsome indeed! I thinks that maybe they just ran outta room...
    Oh, and that painted street is pawsome too!! Wowsa! Beautifuls! The only thing our streets have are pot holes!!!
    Ruby ♥
    pees: your AccuWeather gadget says it's 17, butts feels like 5!!!! Holy yellow snow balls!!!!! You guys stay warm, okays?!

  8. What a wonderful card and it goes without saying you are a very Handsome Scottie. It was very nice to see the flowers and trees with leaves when most of the country is have to cope with a very cold winter. I have been lucky that we have not had much snow this winter. Stay warm my friend.

  9. you are indeed one handsome little dude.

  10. Cold weather snuggles are the best thing aren't they?
    We love your Cincinnati street art and are sure Easy will be most impressed.
    Toodle pip!
    PS Can't believe that Judge Frankie and Ernie the Attorney failed to comment on your extreme handsomeness, SW. A touch of jealousy perhaps?

  11. Da only street paintin dey do ound here are where dey are plannin to dig, which are neverendin.

  12. Hey Sw. Wm. and Lee!
    Wow, you live in the coolest city ever! That sidewalk art is really great...what fun. Looks like FnE sent you a great card and you are definitely most handsome.
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Police Commish

  13. It's supposed to snow here AGAIN.

    But, with warm friends like you, I'm OK.


  14. Now thats something a city trying to make the place wonderful...painting streets!

    SW, they don't need to say it...the whole world knows you are one Handsome Scottie!
