Last week we had a little snow event – 2″ – which after a few cycles of thawing and freezing led to some nasty black ice in my neighbourhood of slack shovellers. I’d complained to the manservant, sojourning in Hawaii, and he sent the following email after I’d advised him that I was safely at home:
I am glad you avoided the ice hazards. Be careful. You are
not good at falling, and I don’t think practice will help.
He is so funny! and he doesn’t get to shovel snow very often!

337 A huge gingerbread house in the window of a chocolate shop! I resisted the urge to go in and buy something.
338 Emjay!! You are standing way too close to the edge of the platform!

340b – they started blooming within a couple of days – they are very strongly perfumed.
341 – walking home from the metro the moon was perfectly positioned above these row houses. I’m surprised the moon turned out so well given I was hand holding the camera.
