"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Snow pictures...again

But first--the debut of Holy Toast. Made by me. Last night.

The big deck (aka the Party Deck) this morning.

The lower deck (aka the Octagon).

Ruth and Lola, snow-leaping across their fenced yard.

After romping in the snow, Jewel is ready to come inside for a nap. Ruth...not so much.

It is a most beautiful day! I certainly don't consider this a Bleak Midwinter, but we've definitely seen the "snow on snow on snow...."

Our property was covered with a pristine, perfectly smooth white blanket. But last night a single deer, or multiple deer (aka deers in MEP-speak) traversed it, leaving their trails.

Fun with Statistics: As of last night, December snowfall for Concord (aka the Capital City) equals 28 inches. By this this date in December '06, a mere and nearly nonexistent .2 inches.
