Dogs and Their Sunny Spots
For the second day I am home due to schools being closed to students and staff because of the dangerous icy conditions of the roads around the county. While same roads are fine, some of the secondary roads are still to iced over to run the buses. If we cannot run the buses, we cannot open the schools. Our old superintendent would have made these optional teacher workdays and forced us to use leave time if we didn't go into work because of the road conditions. Our new superintendent has a different philosophy. Since we're going to have to make up the time anyway, she ordered staff not to take any chances and stay home.
But that's not what I want to write about in this post. What I want to write about is how Ace has staked a claim to the only sunny spot on the rug here in my home office. I opened the shade just enough for him to see out into the front yard and that was enough to let the sun shine in on the rug. Ace , after taking a look out the window and seeing nothing interesting going on, immediately claimed the sunny spot and after sitting there until Ginger gave up trying to move him out of the way, promptly made himself comfortable and took a nap. He is there yet, lying across my left foot, snoozing away.
Ginger , meanwhile, has gone the opposite route. She's made herself comfortable over by my wife's desk under the computer workstation. It is dark and quiet under there right now with my wife off at work today.
I hate to break the news to Ace , but he'll have to roust himself soon as I am in need of a fresh cup of coffee, decaf this time.
