Merry Christmas!

Welcome Christmas! – especially as you bring 55deg F and rain to Long Island! Our small home will be filled when our sons and their wives/partners arrive on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Marian and I are are thankful for our 9 months here since leaving New Hampshire – tho’ we miss our friends there – and the joy of again being close to family and so many old friends. May your “Holy-Days” be filled with warmth, gratitude and love as we celebrate “God’s indescribable gift” to us.

Fall comes to the Island

It’s November, but a killing frost has yet to arrive on Long Island. A few annuals still bloom bravely, their days numbered. The trees have achieved as much color as they do without frost – much yellow, gold and brown, but reds are rare. Many clear days, and none of the destruction that visited New England two weeks ago. We are grateful for the slow transition to winter!
