    Default Life's Best Pleasures

    Whoever first said life's simplest pleasures are the best sure knew what he was talking about. The other day it was around 20 or so and there was a raging blizzard outside (blizzard here in Kansas is anything over 2" snow at one time) and I was happy as a clam in the wood shop working on a black walnut table. My precious Beagle, Princess as usual was with me all nestled up in a ball of love in Her camp chair right next to the wood stove that was putting out the BTU'S. That stove is like a drug to Her and I have a hard time getting Her out of it at the end of a wood shop session.

    While looking at Her and being snug as a bug in a rug myself I was thinking that times like this are what happiness is. Apparently it doesn't take a whole lot for an old man and his beloved Beagle to have one of the best times of their lives together.

    Glad you're enjoying the winter Mark. I too have a little Yorkie that loves heat she get up from anywhere in the house when the furnace came on to go lay down on the register. You can see her hair blowing up beside her.

    Don't forget to post a pic or 2 of the table. Did you find the wood local?

    Good luck and shoot straight

    The wife's 8 yo Boxer/lab, or is it boxer/husky(?), knows where the sun shines on the floor at different times of the day. Dog loves the wife, but knows I'm the one to hang around to have fun outside. Plus, I am the one that sneaks "the good stuff" to her from the kitchen. A great companion for an old 72 yo gun loon. My life would be boring without her.
