Fantastic Fudge Babies

I’m sorry that I didn’t have time to go inside to inquire as to the parents of these twins born to someone associated with Fantastic Fudge on Centre Street. I’ll let you know when I get the details on these baby boys but I know I join everyone else in town by wishing them well.

Sunshine Tomorrow

Here it comes – on the end of the clouds that brought us a nice full day of rain. No complaints here; we’ve needed it.

Even on Cold Days

The sunsets are still nice. Which is nice because today was really cold. We had our first freeze in five winters. In fact, the power grids were out of practice and we lost power a couple of times this morning. Brrrrrr.

The Trouble With Photos

Is that they’re just so darn hard to load sometimes. I’ve been having trouble for the past few days – hence, no blog posts – but I thought that I’d break tradition and do a post with just words.
