I have little to tell about today; no exciting happenings, nothing new.
OK, here's something: Cliff said, "If we keep having winters like this, maybe we will start spending winters in Texas like your sister."
"I can't see you making it a whole winter without your tractors," I said. "Perhaps we should try it for one month; we could trailer the Gold Wing down and ride all the time we're there. I'll check on rental prices for some of the park models down there."
$1,000 a month ended that discussion. I suggested we just visit my sister for a week.
Are you tired of snow pictures yet?
Here's something I've been studying up on: Dogs that don't shed, or shed very little. When Iris croaks, believe me, I'm going to have my head about me enough to get a non-shedding breed. I'm not fond of poodles, but I wouldn't mind a poodle mix. Schnauzers seem like a nice breed. Yorkies are tiny and cute, but from what I've read they're sometimes difficult to house-break, and will take over if you let them. I'd consider them, though, just because of the cute factor.
No, I'm not getting rid of Iris; once I get a dog, it's a commitment, like marriage. She fits in here just fine, hair and all. I'm getting used to vacuuming every. single. day. She's happy with us and, except for the shedding, we're happy with her.
The preceding pictures were from yesterday's walk; the following ones are from today.
Walking was harder today because of the little bit of thawing yesterday. A crust froze back on top of the snow and really made it difficult.
That's about all I know for today; hopefully inspiration will visit me tomorrow.
