Lost in the Blinded (sic) Blizzard finds Hank and Drover spending the night at Slim Chance's house. The description of the abode's extreme lack of tidiness and cleanliness will probably make some listeners shudder in fastidious horror and others sigh in envy. What it really has going for it is the warm stove that the dogs are being allowed to sleep around -- a creature comfort not to be sneezed at when it's snowing.



The electricity goes out, but the phone is still working. Slim's first caller is Billy, which leads to a funny visit. There's nothing funny about the second phone call, although that does lead to the title adventure. Poor Hank. He learns that the reward for a difficult job well done is an even more difficult -- and downright dangerous -- job to do. I didn't blame the faithful cowdog's attempts to avoid being volunteered.

Hank uses his head, especially his nose, but the danger he fears catches up with him. How will he escape and complete his errand of mercy?

As usual, I loved the sound effects and the background music. Tunes I recognized were: 'Three Blind Mice,' 'London Bridge is Falling Down,' 'Pop Goes the Weasel,' 'Turkey in the Straw'?, 'Beethoven's Fifth,' 'When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again,' 'O, Susanna,' 'Night on Bald Mountain,' and the 'William Tell Overture' (also known as the 'Lone Ranger Theme').

Mr. Erickson has produced another entry that qualifies as fun entertainment for young and old. ( )
