My cousin Margaret is skiing in New Mexico next week. Doesn’t that sound glamorous? She told me about it today and I’ll admit, I was a little envious. Not because I ski or would like to ski, but because large resorts full of vigorous men and women in strange plastic boots sounds wonderful. And winter resort culture is full of words like “bluebird skies,” “freshly groomed corduroy,” and “gondola.”
And the potential shared chair lift with an interesting stranger who tells a good story. What could be better than that?
We sprang forward today and I won’t bore you with links to past time change rants. The fix for today’s time torment was to get dressed up in sunglasses and a vintage fur coat for a trip to Market Basket before the snow flies.
I think I have finally become the early 80’s clip art I used to laugh about.
Here in Maine, we’re having a little snow again. I considered a courtesy shovel a few hours ago but it’s still snowing at a good clip. And it’s still light! So I’m heading out to shovel in earnest and survey my small empire here on Blethen Street.
And with that, dear readers, I leave you to your own time change machinations.
Oh, wait! I was on the radio this week, talking about Moxie. You should listen to it. My portion of the interview begins at 46:58.
Thanks, Bob and Sheri, for inviting me to your show. And thanks to all the interesting people who read my blog and sometimes even mention it on their own blogs.
