Are you plowed and shoveled out yet? The weather forecast is for more snow Saturday but I hope the rain will remove most of it from our deck, Paul plowed about 8 inches this morning.
Our new dog, Daisy , loves the deep snow so she can romp and drive her nose into it. She is 4 years old but still has a lot of puppy traits. I feel like a Mailman-wind and snow does not prevent me from taking her out to play. Good for me and good for her.
Janet Kelley was taken to the hospital Weds. with breathing problems. They will be doing tests on her and hope to find the cause. Don’t know how long she will be in the hospital but do hope it is a short stay for you Janet.
