Today didn’t start out as a great morning. It was gray and chill and drizzly-ish, for openers. Then I was struck by a fierce spasm of jealousy (another blogger’s deep and thoughtful post dwarfing my frivolous little post), and then there were lots of boring errands to run in incredibly crowded stores.

EARTHLINGS IN TREES
That broke my grumpy mood all right, and the smile has persisted since, and so what I want to say here is THANK YOU to the Race Mountain Tree Services Company, of Sheffield, MA.

But nobody I’ve come across has your sense of fun, and I’m grateful. Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
