Weekend Trip to Dallas

I almost got lost leaving Kansas City.  I thought I-29 went all the way, but it seems to end here and I am now on I-49 and still heading south.  I only have about 7 more hours of driving and we will be in Texas.  🙂 Chester is still sleeping most of the time, so… Continue reading Weekend Trip to Dallas

Weekend Trip – On The Road

As mentioned last week – I am on my way to Texas for the weekend.  I finished work at 5:00 pm yesterday and Chester and I were on our way immediately.  I am looking for some warm weather and I’m going to find it.

Buried in Snow

OK – so we’re not really buried in snow here in Winnipeg (commonly known as Winterpeg) – but we have enough to last us all winter.  I’m sure there will be more though. It does look pretty and if it wasn’t so cold, I wouldn’t mind doing the shoveling.  Unfortunately snow and cold just seem… Continue reading Buried in Snow
