John-Adrian fractured his ankle playing indoor* soccer, just in time for the doggies to start arriving in Nome.  So if you see a Romanian in his mid-20's limping around on the news coverage of the Iditarod, odds are high it's JA.

*It's Nome, in the winter. I'm assuming indoor.

So JA has a gimpy leg, like Grandpa McCoy? He hasn't developed a West Virginian accent, has he?

I read years ago about the woman who won the Iditarod for some years running. She would sleep in her tent with all her dogs. I've never been able to get the image out of my head; it sounds like paradise to me. My husband allows me only one dog in the bed, while my preference would be for all three, or for as many more as he'd tolerate in the home. We're at three just now.

Your husband and I are of one mind. Dogs should not be encouraged to think they are equal to people.

(And cats are right out, BTW)
