Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So, love the people who treat you right. Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Thoughts for Mushers and Dogs
May the Great Spirit guide you on the
Trail and in each decision you must make for yourself and your team, and
may you have a happy, safe journey.
Regardless of slippery ice, in spite of overflow, wind that comes in sideways, cranky moose, or masters who might lose the trail, may the Great Spirit run beside each dog and may each dog have a happy, safe journey.
The above photos are by the Official Photographer for the Iditarod, Jeff Schultz. I've admired Jeff's work for years and was excited to watch him "doing his thing" at last year's race.
I taught primary school for 27 years, and loved every minute of it. I am now enjoying retirement on 30+ acres in the north Georgia mountains with my husband and Labrador Retrievers.
When we aren't hanging out in the woods, we enjoy traveling in our RV w/ the dogs. One of our favorite destinations is the Pacific Northwest, especially the Oregon and Washington coasts.
My parents are deceased, I am an only child and have no children; therefore, my husband and dogs are my family.
My blog and blogging friends have taken the place of my classroom and students.
You could say, I've gone from SCHOOL DAYS to DOG DAZE.

"I expect to pass through the world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness I can show to any creature, let me do it now.. Let me not defer it, for I shall not pass this way again." Stephen Grellet (1773-1855)
