Hello everybody. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your intrepid doggie reporter

Wow! A lot has been happening in the past couple weeks. You'll notice I'm posting more often just to keep up!
For my first story, my ghostwriter was going to go visit Oma at the nursing home in Tonawanda today. This is a 70-mile trip, mostly via the NYS Thruway. She drove as far as Batavia when the weather started getting worse, with blowing white-out conditions. (For those of you who live in warm climates, a white-out is when so much snow blows by that you can't see anything.) Later, we heard a news report that there was a massive accident involving over 70 cars and trucks on the east-bound Thruway, right where and when ghostwriter would have been driving home, had she not turned around! Can you believe it? There is a link to the story at the end of this post.

It has been cold cold cold out! The weather man said this could be the coldest weather in thirty years!
Speaking of cold, my feet are getting numb. Are we almost done with this photo session?
You may remember yesterday, we did a report about a brave starling who visited our birdie feeder, and his friend the cowbird. Today the cowbird returned and stayed for a long time. Mostly he sat inside the window feeder resting and snarfing seeds. Then he sat on top of the feeder looking in the window. He didn't leave even when I barked!
He looked kind of familiar somehow.
Dad was going to invite him in, but he flew away. We made sure the feeder was filled up real good with peanuts and lots of seeds in case he comes back tomorrow. And for all the other hungry birdies.
Oh oh oh! I want to tell you what we had for dinner today! Lamb shanks, with mashed potatoes, gravy, and vegetables! Yummy!
You know what that means? I'll get a bone!
Life is good!
