Good morning Vagabonds
Good and cold that is, it’s 10 below outside the door. The warm weather of last week broke up the river ice too quickly and caused some ice jams here and there. Some folks had to evacuate in Franklin County (northwest corner of the state) VTrans is still working to clear the road in Swanton, VT.
The way it’s going I’ll have quiet day up here in the NEK, and may you all have a beautiful day.
Good cloudy morning, Vagabonds,
Still warm last night (22). Tonight will be flirting with zero. Brrrr. We went out for the first time in forever yesterday. Both of us were feeling great! Did a bunch of shopping and then had a relaxing dinner. And it was in the 40’s so it was sweatshirt weather.
Don’t have anything profound to say, just xoxo to the Village.
Good morning, Vagabonds.
Mark, M & I were just talking the other day about how various states abbreviate their department of transportation. You mentioned VTrans, California is CalTrans, Texas is TxDot and Nevada is N-Dot. I wonder how other states have gotten creative with this.
We went to see the new “Murder on the Orient Express” yesterday. It is a really good movie. So many details are the same as the book, and so many are enough different so that there are still some surprises, even though we practically know the original by heart. It was a lot of fun. I think this is perhaps the 4th “Murder” movie we have seen, Peter Ustinov, Albert Finney, David Suchet and Kenneth Branaugh (the new one) all play Poirot very well. There may be another one in there, I’m not quite sure. My favorite is the Albert Finney version with almost all of the roles played by big stars like Ingrid Bergman, Lauren Bacall and Sean Connery.
I’m with Mark about the holiday. Being retired takes the “special” out of the Monday holidays. Now they are just inconvenient days when the banks are closed and no mail delivery. One compensation is that most stores have a “holiday sale” during every one of them. Saving money is always good.
Everyone have a blessed day.
