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.

You might enjoy

Recommended blog reading. Maybe you're already familiar, but if not, take a look. A worthy resource for The American List alone, it's turned me onto all sorts of wonderful (mostly traditional or at least traditionally-inspired) clothing resources.
"A Continuous Lean is about things. American things, good looking things, well designed things and all sorts of other things. Sometimes A Continuous Lean even talks about people and ideas. That's it, keep it simple. More good, less bad..."

Happy Halloween

Now that he's back, I had post something new to move my pitiable lament for ADG down the queue. My 12-year old son is now old enough to handle the carving duties, so I surrendered the pumpkin to him this year. I guess I could have done my own. Maybe next year. Every year I swear I'm going to do some really fabulous pumpkin decorating like this. . .

. . . but once again I got sidetracked. (More of Martha Stewart's fabulous creations HERE.) What's your Halloween costume going to be this year?

Wherefore Art Thou ADG?

Is Maxminimus gone now too? Tell me it isn't so!

Channeling Toad

I cannot see your blog,
It makes me very sad.
You don't look like a frog,
But this is all I had.

Toad, Where art thou?

Hoping all is well. I was away for awhile and suddenly you were private.

And then you were gone.
