Happy Hour At Hand

We love 5 pm. It's Happy Hour Time. We have this friend named Merlot. Ever heard of him? He drops 'round 'bout 5 pm to say hello. It's always good to see an Old Friend on a snowy wintry day. The truck is fully packed, boxes, sleds, etc. Susun's backpack is also fully packed. Mine? Not so much. We have a few odds and ends to drop into our tubs before departure. Looks like it's going to be a snowy morning tomorrow. I think this snow won't be unmanageable. We shall see.

we're "on" to meet with the park staff @ 11 am tomorrow morning. We had some really great email interchanges with Elizabeth L. in Island Park. She is doing really great things there in many, many ways. It's always so refreshing to learn of someone who has dedicated their life to a place, a people and a sense of community. YOU ROCK, Elizabeth!

Well, I couldn't resist. I was planning on taking that clunky old pack frame to tow my sled. I kept looking at the spiffy hip strap The Leather Shop made for Susun and I became jealous. So I went down there and had them make one for me, too. We're both stylin' now!

The big debate tonight concerns whether to take the XM radio. Susun says "NO." I am waffling. It will be interesting to see if it goes. So far, we haven't picked who from The Sunshine Family gets to go. Ah, the last minute details.

Well, enough chatter, I have to go have some civil discourse with Mr. Merlot.

Cheers! jp

PS--The photo was added after writing the post.  Susun really went over the top tonight, eh?  Butter simmered flounder, roasted tomatoes and all that other stuff, too.  WHOA!
