“Shovel your way over to the office again?” Admin says.

“You know the answer – I saw you watching from the window,” says Spence.

“Couldn’t find the other shovel,” Admin says. “But how about a nice cup of fresh-brewed – oops! Don’t tell me that was the last of it. Mind digging your way to the car and picking up some beans? I prefer the Sumatra.”

Jan. 23, 2011:

CAN SPRING BE FAR BEHIND?

“Looks like there’s a lot of winter going on in other parts of the country, Chet,” Bernie says.

Uh-huh. We’re out on the patio behind our place on Mesquite Road. I’m lying in a nice patch of sunlight, feeling good.

“The Wall Street Journal here says that in the cold, small dogs, especially short-haired, inactive ones, often need some kind of coat when they’re outdoors.”

Coat? I have a coat already, nice and glossy today, as it happens.

“And here’s something I didn’t know. People use rock salt to melt ice, and it’s not good for dogs. It can hurt their paws, mouths and digestive systems. Even the supposedly pet-safe ones can cause problems if eaten in large amounts.”

What was this? Something new on the menu? I wait for Bernie to say more, but he doesn’t. Instead he has his face turned up to the sun, catching a few rays. Winter is what, again?
