Git Along ‘lil Doggies

?19 February 2009 As the Yukon Quest Dog Teams head toward Fairbanks, I’m getting all geared up to hear those barks and yelps as they cross the finish line down here on the river!? I just LOVE this time of year.? The light is returning; it’s not as cold, and we can take full advantage of why we live in the Last Frontier.? I get goosebumps just thinkin’ about it!? Over across the river at the Big I, there’s a great skating rink and plans for Headlamp parties when those teams slide in next week sometime.? Pull on your skates and?get ready to share in the excitement!

I’m tickled for other reasons as well.?New merchandise is arriving every day at the store.? Right now, there is a burst of springtime color on the center table?so bright I almost need my shades!? You’d better slide on in and see for yourself.? And don’t forget the Fabulous February Pen Sale continues; there are still some beauties available.
