It may not have been my Tigers….
But it was a pack of Tigers that turned the Tide!
Thank you Clemson. 🤗👏🥁🎊🍺 44-16 over Bama. This year is off to a promising start.
One of the many perfect gifts I recieved this year was books. This one took my breath away. How I miss John.

The holidays aren’t complete for me without a few unconventional “traditions”-a cafe, a certain treat, a movie-or ten! And some aren’t really classically holiday films. But this one marks the season for my romantic heart and has become a Christmas tradition for me since I first saw it back in 2001. No one does manic, adorable romantic antics as well as John Cusak, and who can resist the charm of Kate Beckinsale? What an adventure in serendipitous happy ending satisfaction. If you’ve never seen it, you can catch it on Hulu. Lose yourself in possibility and dreams…
I can never get enough happy endings…or Serendipity.

(Finally finished my piece, a tribute to my favorite bourbon, #Angel’sEnvy. Try it-if you haven’t yet.)
Stealing itself against the sharp edge of Winter,
waiting in silent anticipation of day’s end
Sun’s last cry of surrender to night strikes
her cold, hard body, as flint to steel..
Igniting a spark, flicker of brilliance
setting Autumn’s fine petticoats on fire!
Watch her sway and burn with bright desire
to be caressed by his glow, kissed by his hot breath
as bitter darkness follows close behind.
But in that briefest of moments she blazes with glory,
they dance in fiery passion, embracing end of day
when azure skies and butterflies have gone away.
Promises are whispered in the shadow of delight
that while she sleeps he will keep the firelight
his word is true.
“See you in the Spring, my lovely,” he whispers as he slips the petticoats from her
body and kisses her to sleep.
Do not weep.
She will return, together they will burn again in Spring.

Love the Ink Spots…
The weather forecast for San Isidro el General de Perez Zeledon….
Sunny. With a chance of hot. In the “Winter” of Costa Rica. Our cold months here are their most pleasant. Of course, in San Isidro most nights in the mountains are very cool to chilly. But the days are hot, so it was best to be prepared when visiting…the ticas know how to stay cool.
Find a nice spot (La Reyna), order some beers ( yes, that IS ice) and maybe some food….
Simole and delish. Then watch the world roll by from the balcony. Oh! And you musn’t forget the entertainment.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday. We spent at least one Thanksgiving in the land of Pura Vida. No, it is not easy to find a turkey there. But, frankly, it was the last thing on our minds…
