Snow Report

Here we are – at the end of March and still buried under mountains of snow.  Even though I vow to never shovel after March 1st, I have had to do just that more than once this year and today I shoveled some more. Due to the volume of snow, I had to shovel it… Continue reading Snow Report

The Mouse

My weekends (as I’m sure most working people’s weekends) are full of errands and chores that never get done during the week.

Chester and I went out the back door for our walk this morning, as usual.  When we got to our front street, I was surprised to see that the sidewalk… Continue reading Snow Clearing

Freddy and the Tetras

Freddy and the Tetras – kind of sounds like a rock group, but its just my school of fish.  🙂 I finally found a home for my aggressive Barb.  My friend Blue Beard says it is a Rosy Barb.  What an experience trying to give the little guy away though.  My ad on Kijiji got… Continue reading Freddy and the Tetras
