May 9 – Pretoriuskop

Our morning drive got out a bit late this morning due to the fact that several of the people going were not prepared – either did not complete the forms or did not have their forms and then many were unable to stop talking long enough for our Ranger, Pet to explain the rules. We… Continue reading May 9 – Pretoriuskop

Interview Day

Have I mentioned before that I don’t like interviews?  I think I might have – but here I am getting ready to go to one.    I have enough confidence in myself that I know I can do the actual job – but I’m not sure I will survive the interview. In 4 hours there will… Continue reading Interview Day

Bathing Ducks

I did not even check the temperature this morning when Chester and I went on our walk.  I didn’t even check it when we got home and now around noon it is 27C with a predicted high of 33C and possible thunderstorms to follow.  It was very pleasant for our morning walk, so I am… Continue reading Bathing Ducks

Could Summer Really be Here?

What a nice day!  Chester and I didn’t walk along the Red River until after my exercise class at the Y followed by breakfast and I didn’t check the temperature at that time.  I think it was about 9C when I left for class though.  Now around noon, it is 22C under a sunny sky… Continue reading Could Summer Really be Here?

Red River April 11

The temperature was -2C when I left the house to head for the Y for my workout and by the time I got home after breakfast, it was already +3C. So, the dogs got a little messy on our walk. Only a few minutes after we got home and it is +5C and is heading… Continue reading Red River April 11

Red River April 7th

It was -5C as the dogs and I took our morning walk along the river.  It is supposed to go up to +2C today.  🙂 While walking I heard a robin!  Imagine that – still 2 feet of snow on the ground and a robin has returned.  I heard him again a couple of blocks… Continue reading Red River April 7th
