Pizza and French Fries

There will be a little bit of Haiti on the hills very soon.

We’re trying to get Island Boy ready to ski.

Want to see what we’re working on?

The Subject

French Fries


He felt a little off balance at first. Now, he is now bending his knees better, thus moving his weight forward.

Yeah, we're not going with this.

Although Island Boy yearns to be Alpha, the lead sled dog, we knew that a Racer Chaser type device would not work with him.  He is wayyyy too “independent.”

Instead, we’re trying the Edgie Wedgie — a set of clamps and bungee cord designed to keep Island Boy’s ski tips together as he travels downhill at a stately speed.  We are told that, in this manner, he will be able to control his turns on his own.

For those of you who have forgotten or, gasp, never read about Island Boy’s December ski adventure, his plan for stopping last time involved pointing his ski tips downhill and then starting to cry.

Stay tuned….

— The Major

The solution? Perhaps.

    He looks like he’s grown a lot since Thanksgiving!
