Checking In

We had a dusting of snow yesterday morning, but it wasn't much and it was gone quickly. Today we have had a lot of rain, and tomorrow we may see a bit of snow. But the big thing they're talking about for tomorrow is high wind.

The K Mart in our town is going out of business. Eler Beth and I glanced through the store yesterday to see what might be on sale that we couldn't live without. Turns out there really wasn't that much! Ha! A few things I need anyway that were 10% to 40% off, and Eler Beth got some cute capris for $2.40. Can't beat that with a stick. I never liked our K Mart and have been expecting them to go out of business for years.

I think Friday or Saturday Eler Beth and I will do some serious shopping, and I think we'll see if Andrew's girlfriend wants to go along with us. (I'm fairly certain that this is the one who will be my daughter-in-law some day. But that's at least a couple years down the road -- I hope!)

Well, I just thought I'd pop in here quickly to say hi. I know everyone is probably very busy, just as we are. Hope no one is having any very bad weather.

Follow Up on Garden and Gun

I have enjoyed many of the articles in the magazine, and I wanted to highlight two more: The Return of Pat Conroy by Julia Reed and Chicken Dog by Clyde Edgarton.
