Tim and Elvis on Tour

As they do every year during spring break, Tim and Elvis are on tour this week with their "Do Dogs Know Calculus"presentation.    There is never a shortage of media attention and this week both CBS and FOX News have covered it.   I have heard from friends as far away as Florida and Kansas City who have seen it on their late night news.  Here are a couple of links.

I have a teenager

Happy Birthday to my Teenage Princess!   I have it easier than most moms.  She doesn't beg to go to the mall with her friends, flirt with the boys or stay out past curfew.    However, like most Moms and teenagers, we have our moments.   She can be moody,  will 'talk back' on occasion and is master of the 'Slowwwww -bey".   In fact, with a dog age of 91 (yikes!!) she is just a bit slower, all the way around.    But then I am too.    I love this girl.  She has brought so much joy into our home!   Happy Birthday sweet girl!

We finally got some snow!

 Now that March is here and everyone is in the mood for Spring, we finally got some snow!   I didn't realize how much I had missed it.  I love going for walks with the girls in the woods, listening to the crunch of the snow beneath my feet.   I love to watch them roll in the soft white carpet, dig up a stick or chase a rabbit down the trail, their barks muffled by the snowy insulation.   Evidently others have missed it too because we had lots of company this afternoon at Johnson Park.  Cross country skiers, snow shoers, youngsters sledding and dogs of all breeds were out enjoying the crisp air and fresh cover of snow.

We met a lady whose golden lab had chased a deer across the frozen Red River and she was waiting for him to come back.    My girls will take off after a rabbit or a squirrel, but they're old and slow enough now that they quickly lose interest when they realize they don't stand a chance.   The fresh air was wonderful today and we're looking forward to another romp tomorrow.
