    After a long spell of trauma, rain, wind, snow, hail, train delays, and constant complaining – that possum is just what I needed to set things straight! What a happy face. Thank you!

    Ginny – do you have power yet?!! this latest storm didn’t do you any favors, did it?!! hang in there, and yes, that possum makes me laugh every time… I feel like a scrapbookin’ corny Mom when I send it to C. away at college… glad you enjoyed it.

    Hi Dee! Yes, we were out of power for a week during Sandy, it flickered some during the nor’easter and has been a real pain with the commuting to NYC but overall it is just tiring for us. We have had it easy compared to some. The coast is a disaster. I kept thinking of that Katrina quilt and what the Sandy one might look like.
