The Winters of the Malamute & Introducing our Dat

As the shovels came out for the first real snow of the season, my mind slipped into North’s last winter. We knew his back legs were weakening but were struck that he needed us to blaze the trail through the foot+ snow. The old guy that use to bound through the snow was stuck. HeContinue reading “The Winters of the Malamute & Introducing our Dat”

Cricket Cat Camping

Most of my neighbors don’t know it, but my unknown vital task of finding nails on our dirt roads has saved them many trips to the tire store.

He’s not totally gone yet.

Many dogs butt sniff but North found crotch sniffing women far more appealing. Age was not a criteria…40, 70 no matter. 😳 Probably most face palming wasContinue reading “There is No Headhumping in Heaven…whaaat?”

I am so very good at overContinue reading “Pushing Limits”

Find your Voice but Never say Never

I keep trying to get my sister in law to write her own blog because hers would be so funny and beautifully raw. Until then, I hope you will keep hanging out with thought-filled, sometimes insightful, journal-ey, me. When I started this blog back in October or so of 2019, I had NO idea IContinue reading “Find your Voice but Never say Never”
