I ordered a reflective vest that will fit over my winter coat (and other layers when it is -20 to -40) so I won't be quite so afraid to be out around sundown. I ordered on line and it should be here pretty soon. It might look unfashionable, bu... Read more

Sunday, December 18, 2016      1 comments

It is a farfetched hope to live in Minnesota during 3 seasons and the 4th (winter) somewhere much warmer. Not only is it the cold that I want to escape but also the short, dark winter days, the ice and snow (my walker does not operate well in t... Read more
