To accommodate a truncated production schedule which will see us go to press with our Dec. 30 issue on Monday night this will be a working weekend for editorial staff at prairie dog. If the weather cooperates however I will try to squeeze in a brisk walk along the shore of Wascana Lake.

When I was through the park the other day I spotted three squirrels frolicking in the snow. There were also some emergency service personnel practising rescue operations on the lake.  And wonder of wonders, I didn’t see a single goose.
