Merry Christmas from Mucky Boots



Frankie is one happy dog today. His human grandparents don't only know what makes my heart sing (new ergonomic gardening hand tools in lime green so I don't lose them) and Kim's (a new book full of colour photos on guitars and guitar makers). They also remember the four-legged members of the family. And so Frankie is the ecstatic recipient of a knotted rope toy and a fabulous new B-A-L-L. What a lucky boy.

Gifts that make us smile and feel grateful, and the thoughtful people who send them... I love the thrill and giddiness of this!

Yes, our Frankie is a handsome boy. Maybe because he's so pretty people almost always assume he's a she. And everyone wants to pet him and coo over him, until they get within 3 feet and he starts barking at them...Sigh.

And Lindsey, the fact that you haven't lost any of your tools yet gives me hope that I, too, might reform!

What a lucky pup! And I totally understand you on the pruners...I've owned the same pair of Coronas for ten years, but I think they spend six months of each year lost somewhere.

Merry Christmas to you both as well, even if I am a bit late to the party! Hope your sinuses are clearing up - have you ever considered using a neti-pot? I've used one for 4 years now, and have not had a sinus infection since. It's worth looking into.

I hear you on the tools. I keep a can of fluorescent orange paint near my garden tools. All the handles get periodically sprayed. It wears off, which is why I re-coat a few times per season. I can't tell you how much time this has saved me. Nothing worse than hunting down my coveted dandelion poker. That said and done, I am sure I know which set of ergonomic garden tools you received - Lee Valley, methinks? Niiiice.

Enjoy the rest of the holidays!
