Audio: Squeaky Cold Snow

When we lived on the coast in Oregon, for a time, I missed the sound of squeaky, cold snow. So here's an audio of the sound, for all the unfortunate folks who live in warmer climes!   ;-)

A Job for the Dog

Happy Harry, a.k.a. Harry-the-Dog, destroyed a lot of dropped gloves and tool handles before I tried to change his bad-boy behavior into good. I started trading a little cat food, or a bit of rawhide chew, for dropped gloves. He quickly learned that some items were more useful for exchange than others. When he finds a glove or a soft handled tool he'll bring it near me and tease me with it until I come up with the proper currency. No currency, no deal!
