Welcome, Winter

From Mark Tonra's James

A strange fall. Chock full o' transitions. The fickle weather thwarted my usual April to October sandals / October to April boots pattern. The Merry Ho Ho toes saw sandals this past week.

Happily, a few days of brr Nellie cold will lend themselves to fires and hot cocoa ho-ness. Send some of your winter wonderland stuff down here, Sheena and MontanaMan.

"Feeling tired
By the fire
The long day is over

The wind is gone
Asleep at dawn
The embers burn on

With no reprise
The sun will rise
The long day is over"

Norah Jones, "The Long Day is Over"

That "winter wonderland stuff" needs to be shoveled...

2008 was a hell of a year for so many people. 2009 may be rough in other ways, but looking forward to some serenity now.

Merry Christmas, Cheek!

Will Cheek go a whole year without a peep, so to speak?
