It’s the first of December, an important first of the month. It’s the last month of year, the first month that it’s really winter, and it’s the date when most of us really have to face up to the dreaded or anticipated Holiday Season with all its ambiguity. And if you blog on WordPress.com, or follow blogs you find there, you will notice that the weather has changed. It has begun to snow. Don’t worry. I don’t think it’s going to stick.
(It’s fitting, perhaps, that yesterday, the last day of November, was probably the last day for this for a while. Good bye, sandals. See you again during the Big Thaw. There is going to be a Big Thaw this year. There better be. Or so help me I am moving to Biloxi, Mississippi where I will never have to wear shoes (or snow boots) again.)
