January 21

1/21/08: Monday, 8:30 AM. -10 degrees (heat wave). Barometer up, predicting sun. Wind calm, skies overcast with high clouds. No fog. Walked as usual, dressed warm with a scarf over mouth and nose, and it was quite pleasant. Luck didn't mind either. The ferry is moving slowly through the ice which now covers the channel, two together, one following the other. It won't be long now before they stop running and are replaced by the wind sleds.

Birds are feeding pretty heavily, mostly the "usual suspects."

Lucky is upset because we left Joan at the airport in Duluth, and she isn't at home. It is quite obvious, and since he considers me the boss he is blames me for her absence. When I talked to her last night I put the phone to his ear so he could hear her voice but that didn't seem to mollify him. He will get over it in a couple of days and then all of a sudden she will be home again. She didn't say goodbye and tell him she would be back, and that's a big part of the problem. Dogs are more attuned to us than we like to admit.
