On Strike!

I know there’s a lot of interest in the Iditarod here, so some of you probably know this story already.

    OFA, this bit about the dogs refusing to run is something I have told people for years. Wish it hadn’t happened to Nicolas Petit.
    Over the water the race really gets going.
    Have a great day everyone.

    Leonard goes into an intensive rehab facility tomorrow. Cards can be sent to their address or to Encompass Home Health & Hospice, 487 Holyoke St #1, Ludlow MA 01056

    It is in the 40s and melting. But us old-timers know we have at least 4-6 more weeks of winter and the ground will be frozen until the 3rd or even 4th week of May.

    I wish Petit would have just hung out for a day or two with his dogs and then finished the race. He has had a good season.
