Heading to our friends later for Thanksgiving dinner with my pecan tassies and a special cornbread sausage dressing from Mark. Tis all about the food.
26 inches of snow at Star Mt the last two weeks. WOW! Great start for ski season. I predict transition shock ,at least for me when we go back. I'm having a hard time packing warm clothes for Virginia as we fly tomorrow. Here we come Penny!

And this morning after a cold front came through (43 low), Mark and walked to the beach and saw an unusual sight- buzzards on the sand along with our sea birds. Why? There was a fish kill all up and down the beach, Mark had read it's from red tide and all the way up to Ft Myers beaches. It's a phenomenon that happens here from time to time. Nature...
I'll be back with Penny and family pictures!
