Brigadoon

This is all we can see out our window right now (compare to the side-bar photo):



It's been gray outside for a long time now, it seems, but the fog descended night before last and hasn't let up, even in the middle of the day.

I was out walking last evening and I couldn't see people clearly until they were twenty or thirty feet away, and they were actually just shadows of people coming down the sidewalk through the fog.

It's easy to feel like you're starring in a black and white movie. Or like the village might not appear again for a hundred years.

That's January.

Like most men, I assumed that musicals were "chick flicks" until my wife rattled off some of my favorite movies that were, gasp, musicals. She has me hooked. Brigadoon is one of our favorites, and I was thrilled to find it at a yard sale for $2.

Hey! How are you doing? I've lost track of you for a while. Hope all is going well and that you had a nice Christmas and New Year. :)

wow! sad for you! you will love being in Egypt! our neighborhood is very balmy these days. complete with blue skies, palm trees, and great weather! be sure to try some lemonade with mint while you are there. and some Egyptian bananas, the one thing i crave most about Egypt. but then, i am obsessed with food. just the good kind though. hang in there (maybe carrying a flashlight around is warranted?)!

Been a long time! Sorry about the fog. We've had a couple of dim days here in TX too.
