Believe me, we could use a little snow here right now. :)
It's an old pic I've just cropped a bit.

Oh my. I don't think people think much about the snow in Kashmir. Well, I know I didn't anyway..........:)

No? Some have called Kashmir "Asia's Switzerland". We do get snow in the Valley sometimes, but usually not much. This is in the mountains, at an altitude of maybe 9000 feet.

You must have needed a very long ladder............:)

Personally I like the snow (not as much as I like rain though). One night, years ago, I made loads of snowballs and stuck them onto the top of the aerials of the cars in my street. My ex-wife thought that was a bit odd.

Let me guess: That's NOT the reason why she's your ex, or is it???

Not my business, I know. But I just HAD to ask, sorry! ;-)))

"Let me guess: That's NOT the reason why she's your ex, or is it???"

I could probably best answer that by posting a little bit (from a previous blog) about our divorce.

"But, all good things come to an end (as they do). We tried to keep everything together. She took me to the south coast and offered to teach me how to swim.

"Come out here" she said "where it's deeper. There's a wonderful undertow that'll make it so much more exciting."

The water looked a bit cold though in the moonlight so I didn't try it.

I thought that spending some quality time alone together might help. Cheerful picnics at our local beauty spot for instance. There was never anybody around there and we could be quite alone.

"Come and join me and admire the view from the top of this three hundred foot cliff." I called to her once.

She didn't seem to fancy the idea. In fact her fingernails left scratches on the door of my car as she ducked back inside.

We tried joint projects but for some reason she didn't seem to want to put her head underneath my car while it was up on a scissor jack.

Things just seemed to drift more and more apart. She'd spend time with her new passion....chemistry. I found myself engrossed by my hobby of sword and axe collecting. We'd spend the evenings looking at each other over her vials of smoking compounds while I sharpened a sword.

I was halfway through digging the foundations for a new patio when she moved out."

I thought you buried her under the patio. My brother asked if you'd put lye in first, & you said that would only have made her more caustic. Oh dear.

My camera is built into a mini-drone, silly. For those who don't have access to the latest technology, there's a cable car.

She was your true soul mate, wasn't she, Bernie?

Hmm - maybe one that became misincarnated? Like it should have been in a tarantula or spitting cobra?

Or like a horse? They look like a sea serpent propped up on four broomhandles. And their feet...........they don't have any, just enourmous toenails. Also, why did nature give horses shapely ankles when they're capable of kicking a small child through a firedoor?

j.lucija has replied to BernardV
Most horses need shoeing, which protects the walls of their hooves and their toes. Depending on the work the horse does, the shoes can protect the muscles, bones and tendons of the legs from injury. Improper shoeing or remaining unshod when shoes are needed can make your horse permanently lame.

Well, so horses do have feet with toes, but they're shod, & it doesn't look like they have feet. But they do, or they wouldn't have toes. When you wear your boots & people can only see the boots, does that mean they assume you have no feet? So there, Mr. Bernard.

"Like it should have been in a tarantula or spitting cobra?"

I think this is far more appropriate!

If you say that one more time, I'm going to bomp you on the head. (Like you did the chicken. :) )

Er - aren't the ankles really feet? Not that it explains nature's paradox (or disguising device).

All that aside, it's a beautiful picture & I could look at it forever. Snow is always enchanting to me.
