THIS page has a listing of all my blog posts, starting with the most recent. I briefly took a steep departure from my usual blog topics because I needed a place to continue working with the Nose Work Practice group I’ve run (in person) for the past five years – and this seemed to be the most practical way to reach them!
So, I spent a week or so posting our on-going “Practice-At-Home” nose work training updates, exercises and tips here. Fortunately, it didn’t take as long as I expected to migrate everyone over to a dedicated Facebook group page, so I went back to normal blogging again. Yay! The rest of you hopefully enjoyed watching a small sampling of what I do to supplement our retirement income in the real world.

Waking up with a long, hot-water-bottle warm dachshund glued to your side on a morning when the thermometer outside reads -0°F is a lovely thing. Much as I hated to disturb either of us, coffee was calling my name. Rhonda groaned and snuggled closer when I shifted, but heartless human that I am, I wentContinue reading “Different Dachshunds”
If I were a bird I’d be a Chickadee, And live high up in a big spruce tree. If I were a birdI’d be a Snowy OwlWith the night woods for a home. If I were a birdI’d be a Sand Hill CraneAnd dance in a fresh-mown field. If I were a bird I’d beContinue reading “If Only I Were a Bird”
It should be well into the dawn hour right now. The glow of pink, yellow and pale blue should be streaking from the east, painting the snowy mountains across the valley with the glow of sunrise. But it’s NOT. Instead, in the middle of January, in Alaska … it’s pouring rain. Good grief. As soonContinue reading “A Stained Glass Morning”
