Today

Today is going to be pretty much like yesterday, I’m afraid. And the day before that. And the day before that....add nauseum. We did have a couple of things going on yesterday, for a change. T...

And still they come

From the east facing bedroom window on the third floor of our cozy apartment, the panorama is wide and lovely. I see, across the roof tops and the placid little lake, the green carpet of grass s...

And now it's March

I don’t know if it came in like a lion or a lamb. Was a beautiful morning yesterday. But started snowing before I went to bed. We have an inch or two of fresh white out there this morning. It...
