Book Clubs and Blizzards

It was only last Saturday that I took this photo but the weather has turned to winter again and we're getting a nice ground blizzard as I type this post.  Sunday night I attended book club where we discussed Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson, a wonderful book I think everyone liked.  After the book the talk turned to life in general, particularly life in Alaska, and in an uncharacteristic flash of brilliance I mostly kept my mouth shut, drank my tea, and listened to these strong, opinionated, Alaskan women (and one diminutive Texan) talk about their lives and experiences.  If I could bottle the wisdom, commonsense, and strength of character in the room I could rule the world - thank you ladies for letting me attend!

It's a good night to stay in the house and enjoy the blizzard through the windows (and start on another book!) Glad you came to book club and we appreciated your thoughts, too. We'll see you next month, if not sooner out and about.

Morning Steve (well, it's the morning here for me) - interesting picture today, I've enlarged to really look at it. Hopefully, the blizzard will bring good snow for snow-shoeing! Have a great day!

Wow - I just figured out how to set the background on your pics without making them blurry on my desktop! OK, let's everyone say, dah! Now, wondering why my pic is not showing on my blog?

Glad to hear you are reading. It sounds like an enjoyable evening!

I don't know if I'm off the mark, but Unalaska is starting to remind me of Cicely, Alaska.

Do you have a Chris In The Morning equivalent?

You're a very smart man to stay silent---wait, when my husband stays silent, I get grumpy.

Consistency is not my forte'.
