30 degrees above normal – over 50°F – in Minnesota! – in January! I can hardly believe it myself.

On her walk today, Jenny found a frightened, lost dog, and was smitten. We’ve been thinking and talking about getting a dog (or two) for a long time, but haven’t been able to decide – it would be too disruptive to our old cats, too much responsibility if I have to travel.

But life doesn’t care what we think, so it brought a dog to us. If no one claims him over the next five days, he will be ours.
