Is it finally winter, yet? Not that Iím looking forward to really cold weather. My summer clothes are in limbo ‚Äď leave on hangers or pack away. We go through this every year, so itís really no surprise. This is better than 2 feet of snow. Thatís the extreme winter I used to go through when I was a kid back in Ohio. Iím past the snowball throwing phase of my life. And shoveling snow is definitely not on my list of favorite things to do. But curled up with a good book in front of the wood-burning stove definitely is.

We have two flags left to sell at the Post for $20. Leave a message with Susan, our bartender, if you want to reserve one. Weíre having a New Yearís Eve party on Dec. 31. Watch my next article for more information.
