Here we are so far. We starting tracking the last spot, as a lark. But, now I’ve got Iditarod Fever. This got kicked up a notch when I ‘saw double’ – of course I’m talking about the Berington sisters.
And, when I think of beautiful ladies, I think of my mom who lives in Valdez. And, while she doesn’t have Iditarod fever – Yet, as I hear it is highly contagious – She does know some of the stories reported in the news. Like one of our favorites – Dan Seavey has a son and grandson in the race. Three generations of dog mushers on the iditarod trail. That’s cool.
And, She knows that there’s a musher named Lanier in the race. That’s our family name and imagine my surprise this morning when I see that Jim is in first place. Jim Lanier is Winning the Iditarod! Typically, we root for the ‘Red Lantern’, but because we share a last name, we are making an exception. Go JIM!looking very dashing”]
