Xmas greetings from SWMBO

Blessed be ... It's a bare bones holiday.

Merry Xmas, Y'all!

Here's my hope that you and yours are all hale and hearty and having a wonderful holiday season.

SWMBO and yours truly will be settling in for a chilly day or so as the weekend's rains killed the snow cover and no replenishments appear until Thursday, when a Nor'Easter threatens a foot or more around these parts.

Ignatz McGraw is in Seventh Heaven, sniffing out mice, rabbits and voles' tunnels and holes suddenly exposed by the bare ground while Ms. Jingle Belle is exercising her deadly skills to the max.

If I don't get back to you in time, have a very merry New Year celebration, too.

Snow. Oh no!

A morning mixed snow/freezing rain event left roads treacherous. There's nothing like having a pick-up in your lane spinning out of control due to slush, excess speed and/or inexperience, to get your heart rate into the two hundred BPM range (grin).
