Winter's Fog

 The fog is heavy today, freezing onto every available surface. I'm assuming the barn is still somewhere behind that tree, but you can't tell due to the choking density of the fog. 

    It reminds me of a little scene that played out countless times during my growing up years.

    "Freezing fog will kill a dog," Mom would say as she looked out the window on foggy winter days.

    Dad would laugh and correct her. "The saying is, 'winter's fog will freeze a dog.'"

    They would both laugh as Mom shook her head, "I thought for sure I said it right this time," she'd say.

    But always, always, she'd get it wrong. 


  1. What a delightful memory! I'd never heard that saying before, I'll have to remember it.

  2. What a pretty photo. I laughed out loud at the sweet story of your parents. I'm like your Mom and so was my Mom. She never got the punch-line right in jokes and neither do I!

  3. A wonderful memory. A great photo, makes you feel cold.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
