3/22/15 Home and Then.....

Call me a wimp but we are staying home today -  the forecast:

Partly sunny. Patchy blowing snow. Brisk with highs around 17. West winds 20 to 25 mph. Gusts up to 45 mph... increasing to 55 mph this afternoon. Right now its 13 

We did a short walk around the neighborhood and Kelley wanted  to stay out side where she is now. A stubborn girl.


I went out several times to see if Kelley was ready to come in and she finally did.  I sat down at the computer and she came over wanting something - she seemed to want to go back outside and I opened the door leading to the garage exit and she went directly to the car- she wanted to go. I helped her in and went inside to get dressed and drove to nearby Essex Woods - there are trails and a dog park. After greeting the people at the park - she wasn't that interested in the other dogs - we headed down the trail to the old rail bed and walked that both ways before coming back up. . She was happy to be out walking.  My Ex says i have  "spoiled her rotten" . Perhaps. 


  1. I'm calling you "smart"! It was nasty out there today!

    1. Thanks Cindy - now read the rest of the story

  2. Hmmmm. Me thinks the Ex might be right.
    You've created a monster. A sweet, lovable, and very smart one-LOL!
    Have a good day

    1. You have a good day too Sue - she does have a mind of her own.

  3. Hahaha, girl knows what she wants !! Too cute!

  4. Well, I would say you are a slave to that dog, John! I was just looking to see where you've been this winter. The weather made for slim pickin's. We are lucky to have the Bangor Forest. I was away for six weeks and it was cool there, too.

  5. Hi Faith - yes a rough winter- the snowmobile trails saved us - and now the rail-trails are pretty good.- we were at City forest yesterday and the West Trail was a slog. Better times ahead.
