The end of ball season - a conversation with Lady and Phod

Lady: Phod, you should know, now that it has started snowing, ball season is almost over.
Phod: O Lady, you are so silly. You don't know what you are talking about. There is no such thing as ball season.

Lady: Unfortunately Phod there is. The snow will be too deep and you won't be able to find the ball.

Phod: I can always find the ball, I will look and look and I will find it. We can play ball all winter.

Lady: Sorry Phod, once the snow gets deep, the ball will go away until spring.

Phod: If that happens, I will be the saddest Phod ever. I will sit by the closet and give you sad eyes all day everyday. You will not be able to resist this and you will throw the ball. 

Lady: How about this, once the snow gets deep, I have something else you may like that all sit on top of the snow. It isn't a ball, but I think I will like it.

Phod: I don't know. I don't always like new things, but if it makes you happy I will try it. What is it?

Lady: It is a surprise, you will have to wait and see. I am sure you will love it! 

Stay tuned to find out what may replace the ball!

Special announcement: Zaphod has been appointed Blogville's Lead Detective. He will now be known as BLD Zaphod. Congrats Phod and thanks to SusieSusie and Sidebite for this honour.

PS: We have heard some of our international Christmas cards have made it overseas already. We mailed them on the 11th, thinking it may take weeks, not 5 days! Amazing mail!

  13. Congrats on your new position. Our mom just got nervous because she doesn't even have our picture taken for our cards yet let alone any printed yet. She better get moving.

  15. Frisbees! SlimDoggy Jack has great green Frisbees that will float across the top of the snow.

  16. Lady, Phod is right. He should ALWAYS get to play ball. He just needs to play ball INDOORS. I mean, you can put away all the breakables, and move all the furniture so he can play, right?

  17. The ball is orange, that should be easy for Blogville's newest lead detective to find in the snow!!
    Congrats on your new position, Phod!
