Dogs and Avatar

Wow! We went to see Avatar in Spokane yesterday. That is the most incredible movie I have ever seen! I didn't want to leave when it was over.
 Cleo has an uncanny knack of knowing when it's six o'clock and despite getting to bed late has no regard for those who would like to sleep in. She bounced out of bed and out the door to do her duty then charged back into the bedroom to serenade us until we got up. Gypsy was trying to be curtious, as usuall, but the 'kid' won't take no for an answer.
It felt cold today even though the snow is melting so we went out to sit in the hot tub. Gypsy began barking at something (we live in the woods so it could be anything) and Cleo heard a strange noise so she came running over to hide,shivering, behind the tub. Since she only has hair on the top half of her body...her underside is as bare as a baby's bottom...she can't take too much cold. So I had to crawl out of the warm water and carry her inside...and I was naked as a jay bird!
Gale is making great progress with the Ghost Dance sequal. He ust finished chapter 12. Standing Wolf, who has been tracking Sam after Sam stole the amulet, has lost the trail. He is at the mouth of the Kettle River talking to the Indians who come from all over to fish those waters.
There is a real balance between giving suggestions about where the story should go and intruding on his thoughts. I have to wait until he writes himself into a corner and asks for a hand out.
