Winning: Team Couch scored a qualified victory this weekend as we were the only skijor team stupid enough to enter the first race of the Annamaet Challenge Series at -22 degrees. This may be the only time this modestly skilled skier and her two middle-aged distance dogs will ever lead the points tally for a sprint race series. We’ll enjoy it until we get knocked off the chart at the race next weekend.

Losing: On Christmas Day, sadly, the kitchen drain froze and the slop bucket came back for the rest of the winter.
New Work: Two small panels are now on the “for sale” page. More on studio projects later this week.
