shorts in january

Oh my god. . . it's good to put shorts on in January! Aruba is great so far. . . though too. . . I don't know. . . American. I was expecting more European, like Antigua was 25 years ago. We're on the Marriott reservation. Very, um, New Jersey. I say that, knowing that Cape May is my favorite place on Earth, but I expected something different here. Our goal is to find some good local cuisine tomorrow. This afternoon was good for scouting for snacks to stock the kitchenette, some wine, some gin, some vermouth. . . then dinner and cigar. A good cuban for the Man. Even tasted good to me, I must admit. Beautiful sunset. Will let you know what the beach looks like in the early a.m., when I'm at my best. The Man is tuning the guitar and I'm admiring the anniverary bling (pictures in a future post). Life is good.

It's a Little Bit Nippy in England

My table has grown a snow-mushroom.  After being snowed in for about a month, we had a thaw but I woke this morning to more snow.  It is very pretty and all that but I yearn for a toasty nose.

I have given my blog a make-over and would love your thoughts.  I also have a website now on which Stephen Fry has said lovely things about me - - I hope you like them both and I hope everyone is staying warm.
