The water level remains stuck at plus or minus 862 feet. It should be close to 860 to give clearance for water and ice to pass by without damaging docks and stuff on the shore.
I received a link to a video of a beagle investigating the top of a breakfast table by adjusting the chair to allow easy access. Not finding anything of interest, he readjusted the chair and climbed up on the countertop, strolled along the sink, turned the corner to the range, and helped himself to a brownie or cookie. He even knocked the pan to the floor to hide the fact that he had mastered all the surfaces in the kitchen.
Ahmi, my Beagle number two, regularly slept on the breakfast table at 110 E. Lake Road. We certainly soon learned to keep the sugar bowl and butter dish off the table. The chair was always pulled out and I could usually find the warm spot on the table where she had been. However, I was never able to find her on the table because she was always at the top of the stairs, wagging her tail to indicate that it was time I showed up and fixed her victuals.
There are also lots of tales about Sandy, beagle number one, which we will get to at a later time.
