    Yep, it's really winter now. No wood stove and no dogs at my house. Just pulled 16" of snow off the roof in anticipation of yet another storm.

    I do, however, have heated storage and winter work space at my workplace. I can work all day then spend all night working on my bike. Pretty good situation.

    Hey Packindirt,
    Sounds like a great set up with a warm well lit space to work on your bike - I was out in my freezing cold shed two nights ago for an hour working on my bike with a headlamp on. I was really wishing for heat and a real light. I did get the blinker working right!

    Post pics to confirm your set up -ha ha

    Happy New Year!

    I think someone is saying they need a drink of water. In a polite sorta way.

    To clarify, so you don’t turn us in for animal cruelty, those are food bowls for our two babies. They have a full water bowl near the fridge separate from their food bowls. Ripley is far more concerned with food than water........me too, for that matter!

    Never!

    Kids and dogs outside having fun in the winter!!
    Fantastic!!

    They get to go go inside eventually and warm up and take naps in a warm house by a great wood stove.

    Perfection!!

    My brother and his son met me at our cabin this weekend for something we call Dudes Weekend. We usually hang out outside a lot, cut firewood, eat steaks, go for hikes, go 4 wheeling, watch survival or motorcycle movies and hang out around the fireplace. His son is in 4th Grade and my brother said all he talks about are Dudes Weekends and when the next one is going to be.

    This past weekend we went off-roading in Hickory Run, had to cut a tree in half that had fallen across the road, and we ate lunch at the Boulder Field. It was about 2 degrees and the soup and hot drinks tasted great. Firewood and fires usually are a big part of our weekend. We usually cook a meal with the Dutch oven and stay up late at night telling stories by the fire. It was in the single digits this past weekend so we stayed inside most of the time after our hikes.

    of course not! they get up when it's time to eat. and in the Spring. :D

    actually, both cats get put out in the morning and are out all day no matter the weather. we keep them in at night because cats don't last long around here if out at night. Toddy loves to be outside and spends most of the day when we are home outside curled up in the sun. She is quite active and we let her run in the woods with us daily; she probably runs 5-10 miles.

    i snapped this photo because it shows just how comfortable Bean, the King of The House, feels about his dominance, exposing his tender parts as he does.

    That pic was taken in Bullshit, it's south and closer to the suburbs of Massoftwoschitts. (Anywhere south of Topsham.)

    I'm 45 miles south down 95 of Derry, that town where you never reach into a stormdrain for your boat, and 12 miles west of where that lady and most of her neighbors went crazy after she dug up a spaceship she found while walking in her woods.
