2/14/06 - We have a new resident here at Sawbill. In a major break with tradition, we have added a small dog to the Sawbill crew. She is a four month old puppy of mixed terrier and schnauzer heritage named Izzy (short for Isabella).

Izzy is about ten pounds of tail wagging energy right now. She should be close to twenty pounds when full grown. We expect she will give our squirrels more reason to be alert than the golden retrievers ever have.

Homer, the senior Sawbill dog, is openly skeptical about the new puppy. His eyes seem to say, "She's just visiting, right?"

2/9/06 - The Sawbill Trail is a little slippery in the winter. It is not uncommon for us to come across vehicles that have slipped off the road and are stuck in the snowbank. The pickup below was just a mile south of Sawbill in a spot that we call "Hokey's Curve." Usually, we summon the local tow truck, but if it looks feasible, we'll try to pull it out ourselves. - Bill

I didn't think this one would come out, but it did.

2/6/06 - Today is Frank Hansen's 85th birthday. He enjoyed the sunny, cold day here at Sawbill with a good book, a new DVD player, and many phone calls from family and friends. If you want to send him an email greeting his email address is

Frank and Mary Alice Hansen, Sawbill Outfitters' founders, now in their 50th year at Sawbill and 60th year of marraige.
