This is Digby Pancake. Never let it be said that I’m not flexible. I’m so flexible.
I can learn to adapt. Even I, yes I, can put on some pants. Or all the pants if needed. And it’s needed.
When temperatures get to 12 degrees and there is snow, you rethink your decision to never wear pants.
I’ve always been against it. Now. Now I need all the pants.
Snow. Not something that we are particularly used to. Sand? Yes. Snow? No.
The only snow we want to see is a snow cone. Pancake flavored.
We couldn’t believe our eyes when we woke up and saw how much snow had fallen.
We also couldn’t believe we left our RV awning out and Boy Person had to climb up on the roof and take care of the situation.
Snow is an inconvenience when you’re in a house on wheels and have to make sure that your tanks don’t bust, your pipes don’t burst or that a million other things don’t happen.
Put a few persons from that Florida place in the snow and you’ll quickly see panic.
You’ll also see that they don’t have the right clothes to stay warm. They don’t have the right pants. So in this case? I say it again. Wear all the pants. And I never want to repeat this again.
You see, even though my opinion of no pants has always been my motto, I had to reconsider this week.
Things change in our lives and what we thought would always be our opinion may change. It doesn’t mean you’re weak. It means you’re smart enough to realize that opinions are just that. Opinions. They don’t fit everyone. Neither do your pants.
Do we love the snow? When we are warmer we will let you know.
But we can still appreciate the beauty. Changes are good for everyone. Even drastic ones. Even when you have to wear all the pants.
