The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: Raegan to the Vet

The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: Raegan to the Vet Yesterday was a day all about dogs. It was Raegan’s first visit to the vet and I visited a hot dog stand that is for sale here in town. I know, I know, it is a stretch for me to be looking at a hot dog shack but not really. …

The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: An Education in Alaskan Mushing

  On Tuesday afternoon after my now-famous washer incident I headed to Wasilla to work on my new book about harnessing the power within and grab a quick lunch at Krazy Moose Subs.

The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: Den’ina–The Great One

The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: Den’ina– The Great One A lot can be said about the neighborhood you live in. Many times the area that surrounds a home will determine if you purchase it or not when you are house-hunting.

The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: Dont Fear the Repo Man

The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: Dont Fear the Repo Man Well I guess the people that rented the place before I bought it were not only bad housekeepers but bad bookkeepers as well.

The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: Cheese Pizza in Paradise

The Future of Iditarod Dreams: Cheese Pizza in Paradise There is a famous Jimmy Buffet song: Cheeseburger in Paradise. One of the lines says: Heaven on Earth with an Onion Slice.

The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: When it Rains it Pours

The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: When it Rains it Pours I got an early start yesterday, hopefully to miss some of the rain that just so happens to fall every day here in Willow.
