Spent a month in Calgary one day in February. It was minus something degrees. I figure once it is below 20 it doesn't matter how low it goes or whether it is C of F! That is too cold. There was only about 2 inches of ice on the ground, it looked like snow, but it was frozen solid.

Spend a month in Duluth MN one week. Never got above 17 F. There was 4 feet of snow on the ground. That town doesn't slow down in the winter. I could drive that little Dodge K car down and up the hill to the base (opposite side of the Duluth Airport) in the morning and evening with no fear. The only thing was, the restaurants were very hot, at least 80. I would wear a T shirt with my down coat in, then take off the jacket and eat my T-shirt, nearly sweating. My hotel room was linked to a hallway that was so warm, I ran my A/C to get the temp to 70. Every day the cleaning crew would come in and turn the heat up to 80. And those guys complained about the heat when they came to Houston!

In other news:
We found a migrant at the farm Thursday. He has been trying to acclimate to our GSD. So far, the GSD is top dog. He is a beautiful 1 year old Chocolate Lab. He is too good of a dog to take to the shelter, so we are looking for a new home.

We visited the city of Prague a few years ago, in February. It was very cold and snowy the Czech people do the same thing, they wear huge jackets and coats with t-shirts underneath, and all the bars and restaurants are super-warm. It was pretty nice to be honest.

Thought I was meeting some wildlife photogs today -- but I was a day early
so I went by the local airports and found these two units ..

Mitsubishi






Bell






The Bell is a little unique as it has a cable cuttin' kit on it .. running down the center of the cockpit glass is a hidden hacksaw blade.

It's Jay's birthday? And he didn't even invite us over for cake! What's up with that?

Hippo Birdies, Jay...

Happy Birthday to Jay, and kudos to Jan-Arie for remembering! I don't even notice my own birthday, and would love to remember others' dates more easily, so I'm grateful for the reminder.

May your hands be as steady and your eyes as sharp for many decades to come, my friend.

Happy Birthday Jay! Go celebrate and burn some exquisite digits to commemorate it. It's a day to celebrate for all of us because we are certainly better in many ways because you waltzed into our lives!

Ok, been burning the candle at both ends, first on assignment, then for the past two days on behalf of ISAP. I'm ready for a day or so of R&R. I'm crawling under a big down comforter and catching a few well deserved 's.
