This is who I am
Not perfect
But thankful
And grateful
Thankful for family and friends

And feuds that end, and little things
For little things

Cost the least and matter the most
Of all those things
That matter
And grateful for what I have



Let it Snow

gondola run chandler 4 corners throw pillow

The conditions report at Killington Mountain in Vermont today reads:

“5:08 pm 11/16/17–Weather conditions were a little wet today, but it wasn’t all bad – we did notch another inch of snow for the season total. With warm air lingering all day, the snow-makers enjoyed a few hours of downtime before returning to work again tonight.”

There are two lifts and 3 miles of skiing.

Back at the lodge, it is a hot toddy and fire to warm the cold wet toes. Even those who aren’t skiing yet are reminded of what lies ahead.

Chandler 4 Corners and Laura Megroz produced a whimsical series of hooked wool throw pillows with a ski motif. Pick you favorite:

Let’s have some fun


It is no secret, I enjoy being alone – skiing alone hell bent, or hiking alone in the forest taking my time, walking along the beach watching the waves wash the sand, going to movies alone, well, not that.

Do not get me wrong, I like sharing my life with my wife and friends, but sometimes they can’t keep up.


I like fun. How about you?

No white after Labor Day?


Should we blame Daisy Buchanan, that paragon of perfection, and those Long Island snobs for the rule, no white after Labor Day?

Perhaps, but who cares nowadays. White is always in fashion.

After all, white never clashes, it is more minimal, It is bright, which makes it right any time of the year. I am thinking a snowy white Christmas, aren’t you?

Now, add a splash of color as the seasons change and you are there.

The manners bible, Emily Post’s Etiquette, 17th Edition, 2004 gave the go-ahead for white after Labor Day, but we didn’t really need to wait for permission to do what is right, did we?

White comes in hundreds of shades and textures, making it versatile in design.
