I am thankful for my deck. Although this picture is from last year, it shows two other things I am thankful for about the deck: first, Dad put a lot of work into staining the deck last fall and it has really helped the deck to "weather" the winter and snow better. I am also thankful that they have stopped making me wear that harness when I go out: I have only been out for some short times on the deck so far this year, because the weather is mostly pretty cold, but when dad comes out there with me, he makes me wear my collar and tag because of the new town rules.
Oh!!! Sudden update! While Mom was transcribing this for me, Dad let me go out on the deck in the RAIN! I didn't stay long, but he took a quick picture of it.
I am thankful I have a warm dry house to live in! It is supposed to rain really a lot today and tomorrow. But see how nicely the water sits on the surface of the wood? That is because of Dad's great stain job.
