...and on an amusing note.

The following conversation took place while I was out this afternoon at the local sledding hill with Chandler.
(Sledding hills are great puppy socialization spots, lots of different people, enthusiastic shrieking, and zooming going on...I'm working on bombproof here.)

Kid: Cute puppy! What's his name?
Me: Chandler. Chan for short.
Kid: Chan? Jackie Chan! Puppy Chan!
Me: (deadpan) Well, he hasn't shown any martial arts ability yet.

Snow Day!

Actually, freezing rain, ice pellets, and then snow day....
but the essential effect is the same.
An extra day of puppy bonding and socialization!
(I suppose I'll work on those tests and worksheets in between...
time for more sleep now, though.)
