Cold, windy and with temperatures falling into the teens. This is our first Arctic blast of the season and probably feels colder than it really is. Fortunately the cold is to be short-lived and we are to be back near fifty by the weekend . . . Cooler nights make this cozy fleece very desirable. I am hoping some reader offers me $15 for it. Hate to see it go back into the closet . . . I am afraid I have launched JJ on his career as a salesman. Just heard that he is "selling" gumballs to his buddies who visit the house. While the machine takes all sizes of coins, JJ is telling everyone that they will need quarters. Maybe he is saving for some new gadget; Bob and I are sure to be tapped if that is the case . . .
