For today, although we don't expect snow for the next few days, we are getting a nice cold snap so I'll be bundled up and I might even break down and wear socks :-)
DH is still not talking to me, but we were both chuckling while watching "A Christmas Story" last night. It's hard to resist the tale of Ralphie and his desire for a Red Ryder Carabiner BB Gun. I was flipping between that and George C Scott's appearance as Scrooge in Dicken's classic tale, "Christmas Carol". Two of my favorites, and both on the same night. I know that "A Christmas Story" will be shown for 24 hours (or at least it usually is) on Christmas Eve/Christmas Day, so I'll catch it again then.
And RIP Darrell K Sweet, an illustrator that I have loved for many years. I didn't care for a lot of his Tolkien work, but LOVED his basic fantasy art. I have collected books and artist trading cards of work for many years, and he is one of those artists that I have quite a bit from. I wish I had one pinkie's worth of his talent, but at least our world was able to share his vision.
