Heikinpaiva and snow fun!

Heikinpaiva is Finish for "winter is half over" and the city of Hancock celebrates with many festivites.
In the morning Sandy and I helped the groomers move
items and we went for a ski.

Then at 10:30, we met in Hancock to get KNSC's
parade gang organized .

Tech's pep band was here!  They are SOOOOO good.

Many interesting characters get ready.
I was brave so they didn't scare me.

Sled dogs were here as well.  They were friendly.

It's 11 and we start to march!

Arly drove the Grizzly and towed an implement.
It was so much fun.

After the parade, we stayed at the
Finnish-American Heritage Center
so I could socialize some.

Many friendly people and mutts here.

Oh ya, no one ever touches me.
I mean never ever, really.

Oh ya.

Here's a friendly little one.

Oh and kids!

I leaned on her.

We looked at the ice art carvings.

We visited some friendly folks from Ironwood.

It's Clare and John! I haven't seen you in so long...

I don't know you, but I'm glad we met.


Ya, standing up on the wall offers great ear scratching

We watched the wife carrying contest.

I don't mind being carried. I wish I could have been!

Oh, yeah, Jay. You can scratch me too.

The wife carrying contest continues....

...with all different techniques.

Yaaa, Would you like me to go home with you?
Oh wait, do you ski??

We had such a nice time today.
Seems I never get out to meet freindly people.
