Coolest of the cool

I have told you before of our awesome landlord, and I am here to tell you again. They are awesome. In case you haven't heard, it has been snowing quite a bit in our parts (and lots of other parts) so Tug and the kids built 2 forts today (walls really) then sent an email to our landlord:

Hello Col. L,
If you aren't working tomorrow can you come over for a snowball fight? We built 2 forts (walls), one for you and one for us. I think we will win. 
{l} & {r}, but {r} is a little sick so maybe {l} & {j}

We received this reply:

Dear {l}, {r}, and {j},
I'm not working tomorrow, and I accept your challenge. If there is one thing I like when it snows, it's a snowball fight. However, I have to warn you, I don't like to lose. My last loss in a snowball fight was in 1951 when I was in 5th grade!
See you tomorrow. What time does the first snowball get thrown?
After the fight is over, maybe we can build a snow man, put a hat on him, and make him look like Frosty!

Is he awesome or what? I didn't take a picture when there was light so here is a high ISO of one of the 'forts'. It really is white snow though, more like this flash enhanced photo (yeah, I know, both pictures suck).I'll let you know how it goes!

8 people are laughing with me:

Keri said...

That is so cool! I would never have thought to challenge our landlords to a snowball fight! Ours are pretty nice, but hands off type people.

Auntie Nee said...

That is awsome. Hope everyone has lots of fun!!!! Let me know how it goes.

Amy said...

That is truly the coolest landlord ever! You will never want to move again!

Aubrey said...

No way...those are very cool pictures! It takes talent to get pictures in the dark! Sounds like you guys had fun!

Jessica said...

oh and I agree with Aubrey... you are annoyingly talented. ;)

*Is that informal enough for you R? ;) Or do I need to try harder?
