Zach: His Shovel and his Vision

The past month or so has been mostly warm (in Canadian terms), and we’ve had a lot of rain and freezing rain. Nevertheless, we had a light dusting of soft white snow the other morning, so as a form of exercise, the little fella helped the big fella to shovel.

I'm not sure whether he was taking it from the driveway to the pile or vice versa.

At this point he seems to be moving it from the neighbour's half onto our half.

By Jove, I think he's got it!

Zach's Cat

One day, many months ago, he looked at the hydro towers and saw a cat. I don't know of anybody else who has seen this, but I could see it once he said it. Can you? I wonder if he has the artist's eye? I know that I don't but my wife and kids have it.

  1. I like your snow shoveler (or should that be shoveller?) with the crooked handle. It looks to be a bit less back-breaking than a straight one!

    Isn’t it fun what children see? And I can see it too!

      In Canada, it’s officially “shoveller” but living cheek by jowl with the American giant’s influence, I sometimes get confused, especially since online spellchecks for us tend to be American.

  2. Hahahaaaa….well yes, I DO see the cats…but to me they look more like BatMan mask…
    He’s such a cutie!!!

    I see the cat! We have had hardly any snow and only one week of cold weather all winter. It is unbelievable AC, it is plus 6 and sunny today. (I decide it’s time to move home and the weather changes) Zach is so cute, I know you love the company. Have a great weekend…..:-)Hugs

    Neat – there is, indeed, a cat. The artist’s eye is a great gift; I hope he does have it.
    Took the YG’s dog for a walk today and came back exhausted – we have soft, crusty stuff about six inches deep over the hard base of the trails. Even Shammy was breaking through. No shovel(l)er could manage this mess.
    He’s a fine grandson!

    Now I have to check if our hydro towers have cat faces too. That snowfall looks manageable but overall you have far more snow than we do.

    That child is going to need a camera pretty soon. He’s got “the eye.”

    Yes, I saw the cat right away, LOL.

    Quite a little helper you have there. 🙂 My middle son especially loves to shovel.
