   Oct 30


In contrast to the snow back East, we’ve been experiencing a string of sunny days and starry nights. It may well have been like this all month. Rob borrowed my thermometer for some project, so I can’t tell you exact temperatures, but it’s been somewhere in the 60s during the day. Warm enough to have […]

A Horse, Of Course

Meet Turbo! One evening, I was just putting on the outside lights for the kitties when I heard a noise. Peeking out my front door, I saw…a horse. Of course. A beautiful red horse with a white blaze on his face. In the gloom, I finally saw Mark, holding the horse on a tether. He […]

Second Year

Today marks the second anniversary of my moving to Hooterville. What better way to celebrate the occasion than a walk with my sister and Schatzi on the headlands of the Village? Come on, let’s go! Here’s the Village. If it weren’t for the cars, it could be the 1800s: Here you can see the remains […]

The Plague

Beauty Sleep(s) Really, is there anything cozier-looking than a sleeping cat? Even if they are responsible for The Plague. Last month, I noticed that Audrey was scratching a lot. I also noticed that my legs, never my best feature, looked as if I were experiencing a third round of chicken pox*, itchiness and all. I […]

The Bench Seat

Stand back – this car thing seems to be catching. About two days after Miss Scarlett’s belt melt, Megan’s car started making sounds that more like the Waltons’ truck than ever, along with other, even more ominous sounds. There are about a quarter of a million miles on that car, and those have been rainy/dusty/dirt […]

Not So Swimmingly

So, yeah: swimming. There was a free swim clinic last month at the same pool where aquafit takes places in the cold, early morning hours. Megan and I went, thinking to improve our swimming skills. We learned as children, and swam every summer, in the chilly Atlantic and the (relatively) warm waters of Maine lakes. […]

The Cost of Driving

The saga of the car has been long and spendiferous over the past month. First, I took it to Mike the mechanic, who made the transmission run better. Miss Scarlett, like me, needs a little time to get going in the morning, but she’s always up to speed by the time I reach the next […]
