C'est Si Bon

This song reminds me of my dad. We used to watch Dean Martin together. I would always ask him, what does 'C'est si bon' mean? He would laugh and never really tell me.

Debonair Dad

Here is my dad at age 45, the day I got married.  How debonair, kind of
like Dean Martin?

Ornament from Austria

My daughter brought this ornament home to me on
Christmas 2004.  She had been in Croatia for 5 months
working as a nanny for some Wesleyan missionaries.
She got to visit Austria during Christmas and go to their
Christmas market (Christkindlmarkt) in Vienna.  

More ice pics (picks)

Aren't the calves cute?  They were slipping and sliding
on the ice.

Power Outage

Luckily for us the power outage was only 24 hours.
They had an estimate of 10 days to 3 weeks.  Oh my God,
that would have been horrible.  I don't know yet what
has made the difference, I just hope and pray it stays on!
Most of the state had been without power.  We were
fortunate to have a couple of gas heaters in the living
room and one bedroom or we would have been very cold.
We also have a gas stovetop so I could cook by candle
light which I did.  

Here are the iced trees.  Not quite as good as iced teas.

I also wanted to show you my new Hunter boots that came
from Nordstrom's just in time for the wintery weather.
My feet remained dry and warm as I stepped outside
several times these past two wet and icy days.  See, Nin!
