Wheeeeeee! bark bark bark Wheeeeeee!

Last week, we picked up a couple of your basic plastic saucers for sledding down our hill at our local Ace.  Then we waited for our colds to get better.  Yesterday we went on a test run.  Eric went first on the driveway.

The Beastie Grrrlz seem to think that the discs are silent relatives of the vacuum cleaner.  They don't trust 'em, but they want to make sure we are safe so they stay close.  Good girls.  I went next, but on the "yard."  It was so slow that when I turned to look at the dogs I could see them awkwardly trying to both run and stay behind me which is one of the cardinal rules of chasing.

We both gave it another go on the driveway and believe that as the season and snowing continues, we'll have some pretty good sledding conditions right out the front door.  It reminds me of growing up on "the hill" on Camwal Drive minus the ditches on either side.

Today we decided to take advantage of the nice, sunny day to hike a little further out into the woods than we usually do and further than I had to date.  We went high enough that we could see not only the other side of the valley, but the Bitterroot River at its bottom.

A pretty all right view.

We hope the sky stays clear tonight so we may view the Geminid Meteor Shower!  From the hot tub!  With spiked homemade hot chocolate!


  1. The slow "whoops, got too far forward" chase made me laugh. :)

  2. Me, too! All the way down the hill.

  3. Those are happy dogs and people. :) I love how the disc is a scary shield. Very scary!

    1. Between chores today we took 5 minutes to slide down the hill a couple of times and Delia just had to go wait in the bushes, it was just too scary. Poor puppers!
