Wonderful. Thank you.


Ditto Kate Marie. And I have full, aching empathy for your 10-year-old city mouse who hates farm smells, having endured long visits to relatives on a dairy ranch at his age.

Can you hear me now?

I'm mostly a lurker, which I know you bloggers don't appreciate so much. So, I'm coming out of the darkness to tell you what an excellent post I think this is. Great writing.


Speaking only for myself, it's not a lack of appreciation for lurkers, it's more that they wish the silent would join the party.

Ooh, #1-Son is like your 13-year-old. I've never had him anyplace more busy than downtown St. Louis; we were just driving right to the museums in Chicago. I'll bet he'd freak out in NYC, but I loved it there.

Kevin Wolf

I'm a city mouse, for sure. Wish my city was still NY. But I can sympathize with the teenager. Too bad he couldn't enjoy himself.

Damn, it's been too long since I've been in NYC for Christmas!


Isn't blogging nine-tenths "boasting about lifestyle choices as if they were proofs of superior virtue, intelligence, class, taste"?
