“More of the same,” is what could be reported to the captain of the ship except that this is no ship and we are going nowhere. I do not know how Five and Nine, Andy’s dogs, are managing in this weather but they seem to be enjoying it, prancing about the fields and stopping occasionally for a treat such as a doggie biscuit—sorry kids, we do not have any bones or other doggie treats on hand. Father John and Matushka Anna Bingham came for a visit in this nasty weather and, while they were here, we did not even once think of the snow outside. We do not see them often enough and when we do, it is as if they live just around the corner and we can enjoy their company any time. We shall see what tomorrow has in hand.
