Okay, last night was frosty. Tonight with ice on the ground and a bodacious wind chill factor of 12(that is bodacious for Arkansas) my toes are turning blue despite the fact that I am inside and have warm slippers on. My goodness I am a cold weather wienie!

It seems that someone was somewhat skeptical about my frozen toilet water story last night. It is a true story. Now, it was just the water in the bowl not the water in the tank which was up higher and not down on the floor. The toilet was on the far northern wall of the building. There was ZERO insulation and Little Rock was having a bodacious cold snap. I have been in my current house for many, many nights with no heat. In fact, I did not have heat in this house for several years. (Long story.) I have never had the water freeze in the toilet here or anywhere else I have been. I think it was just a fluke but it did happen. Too bad I don't have pictures of it because I think it would be great to show, not for proof just because I think it is still one of the craziest things that has ever happened in my life which has been filled with many crazy and improbable occurrences. I have lived an "abby-normal" life.

Well, I haven't written about doogie poop in a few days but well, it's like this. I just have been so irritated with the little dog that I have tried to overcome my annoyance before I wrote about her newest naughty, naughty, naughty habit. She has been pooping in the back room. Now this is highly preferable to her pooping in MY room but she KNOWS she is doing something naughty. I don't know what I have done to spur this recent spate of rebelliousness but if you think it is hard to deal with a teenager who is acting out try dealing with a Chihuahua who is out to show YOU who is the boss. I have had dogs who have had accidents but I have never had a dog pull this kind of "stunt." I want to put her on a diet of dry kibble and water until she decides to go to the potty on her pad but well...we all know that isn't going to happen. The little dog has Miss Teffers on her side. I am toast!

I hope you have a warm night and a zippity do da Saturday!

Ciao!

Yes, frozen water is indeed possible in a toilet. It happens in cabins here in California and that's why people put antifreeze in the toilets. Obviously, what with having the little dog, you can't do that.

Thank you for coming to my rescue. We put anti-freeze in the toilet at the cabin and the flea market for the same reasons. I wonder if anonymous just couldn't quite believe that water could freeze in the toilet of an occupied apartment. Who knows but thank you for the photos. Water in a toilet can indeed freeze.

As a side note did you see that further down the page of the blog post with the frozen water in the toilet was the recipe for "Neiman Marcus" cookies. I thought THAT was a real hoot. Frozen toilet water and "fancy schmancy" cookies.

Hugs,
