Good Morning! Spring is just around the corner. :-)

Good morning. Been up since five and thought for sure I would be in the running for the early bird. Decided to wash some pots and pans and forgot to check in here. Oh well glad Marianne and Deb beat me.

Hi Mikie! I was sitting here catching up on e-mails when I realized what time it was.

Loved the fox picture. And I now have more reason to visit Evergreen cemetery, which is one of my favorites. A very "dear" friend's son is buried there. It will be a must stop to search him out and say a prayer for him :(

Have a great day!! It's cold here again today. So much for spring being just around the corner.

I love the Copper Harbor Meltdown photo, but then I love Copper Harbor & the Keweenaw, period! I meant to congratulate Yooper Ed Stielstra of McMillan, MI (near Newberry), on his 27th place finish in the Iditarod. Ed finished it with 11 dogs, which is really good for this year's race, if any of you have been following it. I got interested in following the race about 5 years ago. It's something that I could never do, but I am fascinated watching it from my computer, with the athleticism of the dogs and the mushers. It is one very long, demanding race, with the trail terrain and very different weather issues, etc. Ed was mentioned for his help to another musher, by giving the musher a bag of booties for the dogs, when one of the second musher's drop bags did not arrive at a checkpoint in the race. That's good sportsmanship for you. Way to go, Ed!

If you want to see an animated movie about the reason for the trip that eventually became the Iditarod, rent Balto. It's a very cute movie.

Where's Janie? Are you "back in the saddle again?" Hope so.

Well, this winter hasn't been too exciting as Sharon Smith said. No exciting storms. Spring is here. Saw two Canadian geese flying over today. My tuplips on the west side of the house are blooming even though we still have snow.

Cindy, I will check out that movie, love dogsled races.
The Jack London books remind me of the dogs and how they loved to run.

I have popped in and out in between walks. Doc says do a lot of that and with sunny days and 55-60 temps, I'm more than happy to do so. And I have been currying a lot of winter hair off the horses!

Hey I won an ird. Guess it was worth getting up for. Precious is in Manistee helping our daughter. Jimmie the fat white cat has been following me around meowing and howling looking for her. Tonight when she called I put her on the speaker phone and Jimmie went nuts. I was walking to the office and he followed yowling for her. He really is a good companion. Rescued from the pond. Sure is lonely around here.
